Following a big win over the Leafs in Toronto on Saturday night, the Canadiens face the red-hot Bruins in Boston tonight, and will turn to Peter Budaj in goal.

Budaj is 4-2-0 in his career against the Bruins, and while he struggled in his last few starts filling in for Carey Price, he earned a 4-1 win in Boston on January 30th, when he made 34 stops. The Canadiens face the Sabres in Montreal tomorrow night in a back to back scenario that would most likely see Price back in goal.

Meanwhile, Lars Eller will be a game time decision. He left Saturday's game early with a lower body injury, but appeared to be okay during the morning skate, and will centre the fourth line between Travis Moen and Dale Weise if he's good to go.

No other line-up changes are expected.

The Bruins are riding a 12 game win streak, their longest since they won 13 in a row from February 23 to March 20, 1971.

Here's how the Habs looked during morning skate at TD Garden.

Pacioretty - Desharnais - Vanek
Galchenyuk - Plekanec - Gallagher
Bourque - Briere - Gionta
Moen - Eller - Weise

Markov - Emelin
Bouillon - Subban
Murray - Weaver
