According to TVA’s Renaud Lavoie, Parenteau suffered the injury during the first period.
#Habs Therrien spoke to team’s medical staff and says Parenteau’s lower body injury is not serious. Same with Eller.

Parenteau was acquired by the Canadiens in June along with a fifth-round draft pick in 2015 from the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for Daniel Briere.
The 31-year-old has 73 goals and 205 points in 291 career NHL games with the Blackhawks, Rangers, Islanders and Avalanche.
