The Montreal Canadiens return home to the Bell Centre to face the Carolina Hurricanes for the second straight night.

The Habs, who beat the Hurricanes 6-0 Friday night at the Colisee Pepsi in Quebec City, have decided to keep some of their young players in the lineup once again.

Jarred Tinordi, Greg Pateryn, Michael McCarron, Magnus Nygren, Sebastian Collberg, Michael Bournival, Christian Thomas and Darren Dietz are among the prospects head coach Michel Therrien decided to dress for a second consecutive night. Veteran players likes Tomas Plekanec, Rene Bourque and Andrei Markov will make their first appearance this pre-season.

"I think the coaching staff wanted to wait a little longer to play us older guys so they can have a better look at the younger players," Bourque said after taking part in the Habs' morning skate.

Travis Moen's name has been added to the injured list after missing practice for the second time on Saturday. The Canadiens confirmed that Moen is day-to-day with a lower-body injury. Francis Bouillon rejoined his team Saturday morning after missing Thursday's practice with a lower-body injury as well.
