The Montreal Canadiens take on the Calgary Flames tonight at 7:30pm ET, and will do so with a slightly changed lineup from the one we saw on Tuesday against the St. Louis Blues.

Claude Julien announced one significant change to the blue line, and provided an update on the team's star center Jonathan Drouin.

Victor Mete will sit as a healthy scratch in favour of Jakub Jerabek, who has been watching from the press box recently.

The ideal would be to have both puck movers in the lineup, but with Shea Weber and David Schlemko back in the lineup, they are tight for space. 

Joe Morrow almost seems like an after thought at this point, despite his improved play as of late.

With all this depth on the back end, it'll be interesting to see if more moves come, with Brandon Davidson already leaving the team.

Drouin, for his part, is healed of his lower-body injury that has kept him out recently, but a virus has impeded his ability to get back into the lineup.
