RDS and RDS live The match between the Canadians and the Panthers will be presented at 1 pm.

before the match

The Canadians had one last game, this afternoon against the Florida Panthers, before heading back to Montreal for a much-needed 12-day break.

Striker Brendan Gallagher, who injured his lower body on Friday, did not train and could miss the match. If he is unable to play, Cameron Hills, the midfielder who started the season in ECHL with Trois-Rivières Lions, will replace him in the squad.

Gallagher’s absence will likely add to the many players on the squad under the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol. On Friday, striker Brandon Paddock joined strikers Paul Byron, Laurent Dauphin, Mike Hoffman, Arturi Likonen and Tyler Toffoli, and defenders Ben Chirout, Joel Edmondson, Jeff Petrie and Chris Weidman, and goalkeepers Jake Allen and Cayden Primo.

Striker Jonathan Drouin, who missed Thursday’s game against the Carolina Hurricanes due to the unrelated COVID-19 virus, is expected to be in uniform against the Panthers.

Samuel Montemboldt will be the primary goalkeeper for the Canadians. He will get the third start in a row and the first against his previous team.

This is the first of four matches between the two teams this season. The CH will attempt to curb their losing streak to two, while the Panthers will be looking for a third straight victory.

At the end of this meeting, the Canadian will return to his homeland, where he will enjoy a 12-day break since his first four matches in January at the Bell Center were postponed due to restrictions in place in Quebec to slow the transmission of the disease. . COVID-19. Therefore, the next meeting of the Habs is scheduled for January 12th against the Boston Bruins. The duel was originally scheduled to take place in Montreal, but was moved to Boston.
