(Sunrise) Samuel Montembeault will get the start against the Florida Panthers on Thursday night at Sunrise.

So decided Martin St-Louis, who confirmed the decision at the end of the afternoon at the FLA Live Arena in Sunrise.

For the Quebec goalkeeper, it will be a second start in a row, he who had been in front of the Canadiens’ goal during Tuesday night’s game in Pittsburgh.

“The goaltenders like to play two games in a row,” replied the Canadiens coach. He’s going to get two games in a row, and he’s earned it. »

Martin St-Louis added that the Canadiens were not going to make any changes to their roster, which will therefore be the same as Tuesday night against the Penguins.

The Canadian will take the road to Tampa Thursday evening after the game, since he must face the Lightning there in the next meeting, scheduled for Saturday evening.
