Pre-game notes

Canadiens will wear the green and red sweaters of the 1910-11 Le Club Athletique Canadien.

Jay Leach makes his debut for the Habs in place of Mathieu Carle. Leach will wear No. 20, which was most recently worn by Robert Lang. Most notable No. 20s for the Habs include Peter Mahovlich and Phil Goyette. On his first game as a Canadien, Leach says, "I hope to be a non-factor in this game."
