Dominique Ducharme gives four players a chance... (he feels "nice")

Dominique Ducharme announced the lineup he will use tonight, still against the Ottawa Senators, but at the Bell Centre. So far, Dominique Ducharme's soldiers have suffered two setbacks in three games, where some players who were supposed to win didn't...

The trio led by Nick Suzuki, who is surrounded by Tyler Toffoli and Brendan Gallagher, will be in action tonight. This will be a first prep game for "Gally", who will certainly bring a LOT of energy, even though it's only a prep game.

We'll also see Ryan Poehling in action, he gets another chance to shine, after not breaking anything so far. Alex Belzile, who was one of the top performers yesterday, will also be back. Chris Wideman, who is emerging as a potential 6th defenseman, will be able to pick up where he left off yesterday.

Gianni Fairbrother is the other one who will play a second consecutive game.

Here's the lineup we'll see tonight (7pm):

By the way, Dominique Ducharme announced some bad news about Sami Niku. The defenseman who was fighting for a spot with Chris Wideman has suffered a concussion, which could result in Wideman grabbing the club's 6th spot at defense to start the 2021-22 season.

The Habs also cut two Quebecers, who will head to the Laval Rocket training camp:
