Preseason Game 6: 26/09/11 Boston Bruins at Montreal Canadiens

Tonight, the Boston Bruins (well, some of them...) make their first trip back to the Bell Centre since eliminating the Habs from the Stanley Cup playoffs last spring. After blowing out the Canadiens 7-3 in a game in Halifax last night, the Habs will ice a very different team for this one.

Here's a look:


Mike Cammalleri - Tomas Plekanec - Brendan Gallagher
Michael Bournival - Brian Willsie - Brian Gionta
Brock Trotter - Gabriel Dumont - Mike Blunden
Phillippe Lefebvre - Philip DeSimone - Alain Berger

Jeff Woywitka - Josh Gorges
Jaroslav Spacek - Raphael Diaz
Jarred Tinordi - Frederic St-Denis

Carey Price (full game)
Nathan Lawson

Expect a significant round of cuts to be announced either after the game this evening, or else tomorrow morning. The Hamilton Bulldogs will open their training camp this week with their first preseason game scheduled for Friday, September 30th, in Victoriaville against the Binghamton Senators.

Habs forward Max Pacioretty will not play tonight as he is sidelined with a flu.

The Bruins, meanwhile, will play many of the same players in the second half of the back-to-back, with notable absences tonight including Zdeno Chara, Brad Marchand, and Benoit Pouliot.


Milan Lucic - David Krejci - Tyler Seguin
Max Sauve - Rich Peverley - Chris Clark
Jordan Caron - Chris Kelly - Jamie Arniel
Lane MacDermid - Greg Campbell - Shawn Thornton

Dennis Seidenberg, Johnny Boychuk, Andrew Ference, Steven Kampfer, Matt Bartkowski, Colby Cohen

Tuukka Rask
Anton Khudobin
