by Montreal Canadiens @CanadiensMTL /

The Canadiens visit Boston on Sunday for a final test before the bye week.

Montreal will hit the ice for the second time in just over 24 hours and play their third game in the last four days.

On Saturday, the Habs lost 4-2 to the St. Louis Blues at the Bell Centre.

The Bruins meanwhile, also in action on Saturday, are coming off a 4-3 win against Vancouver.

Boston is undefeated under new head coach Bruce Cassidy, having gone 2-0-0 since Claude Julien was fired earlier in the week.

Carey Price will be back in goal for the Canadiens at TD Garden after getting a night off on Saturday. With a win on Sunday, the All-Star netminder would tie Ken Dryden for third-most in team history (258).

Following the Original Six matchup, Montreal will not play again until the Winnipeg Jets visit the Bell Centre on February 19.

Game time in Boston is scheduled for 7:30 p.m., and will be broadcast on Sportsnet and RDS.
