PHI (2-2-1) @ MTL (4-0-1)

The Canadiens return home to play host to the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday at the Bell Centre.

On Saturday, the Habs put up a ninth-straight win at TD Garden since 2012, defeating the Bruins 4-2 on the road. Brendan Gallagher, Phillip Danault, Paul Byron and Torrey Mitchell were the Montreal goalscorers.

Carey Price made 19 saves, earning his second win in as many outings this season.

Price will be back in goal opposite the Flyers, who are coming off a 6-3 win against the Hurricanes on Saturday -- their first in four games since their season opener.

Jakub Voracek notably registered two goals and an assist in the effort. The Czech winger is the Flyers' top point-getter this season, with two goals and five assists.

Canadiens head coach Michel Therrien will utilize the same lineup as in Boston, with Greg Pateryn once again replacing Mikhail Sergachev on the blue line.

At the other end of the ice, Steve Mason will get the start in goal for the Flyers. 

Former Hab Dale Weise, meanwhile, will not be in uniform as he serves a three-game suspension for an illegal hit.

Game time is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. and will be broadcast on SNE and RDS.
