Alex Semin will be a healthy scratch tonight in Edmonton. It’ll be the first game this season that the Canadiens winger has not played.
Paul Byron will take Semin’s spot in the lineup, Montreal coach Michel Therrien confirmed today.
Semin, 31, was a minus-2 in Tuesday’s 5-1 loss to Vancouver. He’s registered just one shot in his last two games combined.
The Canadiens also play tomorrow in Calgary.
