Looking to avoid going 0-3 down in their second-round series against Tampa Bay, the Canadiens will likely have David Desharnais back in the lineup when they face the Bolts tomorrow.

Desharnais, who sat out Sunday’s loss with the flu, traveled to Tampa Bay one day after the rest of his teammates did. Per TVA, the diminutive forward was admitted to hospital over the weekend to get re-hydrated.

Desharnais will be a nice boost for the Habs, should he draw in. He finished third on the team in assists this year (with 34) and has averaged 16:40 TOI through his first seven postseason appearances.
