The return of Brendan Gallagher to the lineup will mean that Erik Cole will drop down a line and skate alongside Lars Eller and Alex Galchenyuk.
Hopefully this will get Cole going. He has not produced much this season (two goals) and the Habs' coaching staff may be getting a little impatient with him. "We expect more," Canadiens coach Michel Therrien said of Cole. "I'm not going to hide it and I'm sure he expects more. He's an important player for us. We expect him to bounce back."
