Montreal Canadiens interim head coach Dominique Ducharme has made only one change to his roster for Thursday night's game against the Ottawa Senators, and it's between the pipes.

Jake Allen, who hasn't played in 13 days due to the Habs' forced shutdown, will replace Carey Price, who won a shutout on Tuesday against the Edmonton Oilers.

Ducharme précise que Jake Allen sera le gardien partant.

Ducharme adds that Jake Allen will get the start in goal.
