Martin St-Louis confirms the rumor, and there is a significant change on the Canadiens' defense

There have been several significant developments in the Canadiens' camp in the last 24 hours. Firstly, Joshua Roy has been recalled from the Rocket.

Next, we learned that Josh Anderson will not play due to a lower-body injury. Joshua Roy will take his place on the 2nd line.

Then, we just found out about a change on the defensive front. Justin Barron will be scratched, and Johnathan Kovacevic will be in the lineup.

It's unfortunate for young Barron. He was playing very well when St-Louis called upon him, considering he began the season on the sidelines. Lately, his game has been less solid, it must be admitted.


Barron has taken some solid hits several times in recent weeks, which could explain the slight additional hesitation in his play.

Anyway, he will have the opportunity to watch his teammates from the press box, which could be beneficial for him to notice certain things.
