It's finally tomorrow that the Montreal Canadiens will play their very first game of the season, and for the occasion, we now have our first "official" trios and the probable line-up to face the Toronto Leafs this Wednesday.

At yesterday's practice, Jonathan Drouin and Michael Pezzetta were out and it's exactly the same situation today.

Forwards:

Caufield - Suzuki - Anderson

Monahan- Dach- Hoffman


Slafkovsky - Dvorak- Gallagher

Pitlick - Evans - Dadonov

Defenders:

Guhle - Savard

Xhekaj - Wideman

Harris - Kovacevic

Guards:

Allen

Montembeault

Barring a major turnaround, we can assume that Pezzetta and Drouin will be left out of the first game of the season.

We can also assume that this is the final and official lineup for tomorrow, barring another injury or Mike Matheson's return to health by then.

Arber Xhekaj will start the season in the top-4, along with Chris Wideman.
