Live from Tempe, Arizona, the Canadiens are facing the Coyotes tonight at Mullet Arena. It was an off-ice training day today, except for the players who will be scratched.

It had been talked about for a few hours that Jesse Ylonen and Gustav Lindstrom were supposed to take the spots of Michael Pezzetta and Jordan Harris. In the end, it's only Pezzetta who will make way for Ylonen.

"Some players are on the ice at Mullett Arena. Michael Pezzetta is there, which means he will give way to Jesse Ylonen tonight. Gustav Lindstrom on the ice, so he will be scratched again tonight, no changes expected on defense."

Considering the physical presence of the Coyotes' big guys (Jack McBain and Liam O'Brien), it's a difficult decision to understand. Pezzetta brings a dimension that the Canadiens might need tonight, but Martin St-Louis decided otherwise.

It must be said that Ylonen also didn't deserve to lose his ice time, and Armia has been performing well since his recall. He's much more involved.

IN YOUR OPINION, SHOULD MARTIN ST-LOUIS DRESS PEZZETTA INSTEAD OF YLONEN?
