A surprise is possible tomorrow for the game and it is Martin St-Louis who confirms it

At today's media availability, Montreal Canadiens head coach Martin St-Louis had to answer a reporter's question regarding the starting goaltender for tomorrow's game against the mighty Boston Bruins.

If for the past several games, we used to hear the answer "Sam will play tomorrow", that's not what the coach said today. On the contrary, there could be a surprise according to St-Louis words.

"Martin St. Louis when asked if Sam Montembeault will be the starter tomorrow against Boston: 'I don't know yet'" - Priyanta Emrith

The most plausible scenario is that Jake Allen could return to action against the Bruins.


The other possible scenario is that Cayden Primeau gets the start, but given the strength of the opponent and the daunting challenge involved, I'd be very surprised to see the youngster get sacrificed into the jaws of death, or the bear in this case.

In my opinion, if Allen doesn't get the nod for the match, then that means Montembeault will be automatically designated for the match.

This will be an issue to follow tomorrow.

Details to follow.
