NEW YORK -- Claude Julien made a pair of adjustments to his lineup prior to facing the Rangers on Sunday.

Up front, Torrey Mitchell will replace first-year Habs forward Ales Hemsky, while Brandon Davidson will fill in for Mark Streit on the blue line.

Sunday will mark a first game for both Mitchell and Davidson this season.

"I'm going with some fresh legs to give us the energy we'll need tonight," explained the Habs bench boss, as his squad gets set to hit the ice for a second time in less than 24 hours, following a 6-1 loss in Washington.

Julien also confirmed that Carey Price will be back in goal on Sunday following an early night on Saturday.
