The Montreal Canadiens will go with a veteran line-up tonight as they host the New Jersey Devils in their fifth pre-season game.

Jarred Tinordi and Michael Bournival are the only two rookie players in the line-up for the Canadiens. The pair have had an impressive camp so far and have shown they deserve more ice time. Against New Jersey, head coach Michel Therrien will use Bournival at his natural position of centre on a line with Travis Moen and Ryan White. Bournival will test at a position he has yet to play at the NHL level.

The Canadiens have dressed Tinordi for all of their pre-season games so far, which is something he is more than willing to do. "I'm not going to complain about playing games, that is what I came here to do." the 6-foot-6 defenceman said after Monday's morning skate.

Lines from the morning skate:

Bourque - Plekanec - Prust
Pacioretty - Desharnais - Briere
Galchenyuk - Eller - Gallagher
Moen - Bournival - White

Gorges - Subban
Markov - Diaz
Bouillon - Tinordi
