Moen, Desharnais Return To Habs Lineup Vs Ottawa
Travis Moen, out with a facial injury since Oct. 26, will play for the first time in five games while fellow forward David Desharnais will draw back into the lineup after being made a healthy scratch in Tuesday?s 3-2 shootout loss to the Blues.
Moen, 31, has appeared in 11 games for Montreal this season, recording two assists while averaging 12:13 TOI per game.
While his offensive production has been limited, it?s still more than what Desharnais has provided.
Desharnais acknowledged he wasn?t playing as well.
?[Therrien] just wants me to compete a little bit more,? he explained. ?I?m not producing the way I would like to, and just chip in and help the team win.?
