Max Pacioretty will make his regular season debut tonight as the Canadiens look to sweep their four-game road trip in New Jersey against the Devils.

Pacioretty will play on the fourth line with fellow call-up Kyle Chipchura and Steve Begin.

Yannick Weber, also called up from Hamilton yesterday, is not expected to dress.

With the injury to Alex Tanguay, Sergei Kostitsyn will play with Robert Lang and Max D'Agostini.

Jaroslav Halak will start in goal, backed up by Marc Denis.
