Brandon Prust could be making his return to the Canadiens' lineup tomorrow at home against the New York Rangers.

Prust has missed the last eight games with a shoulder injury, today was the first time he has practiced with the team since getting injured.

Michel Therrien was using him on the third line with Lars Eller and Alex Galchenyuk. The final decision on whether Prust will play tomorrow will come after the morning skate but Prust said today after practice that he feels ready to go.

Defenseman Nathan Beaulieu will make his NHL debut tomorrow. The Canadiens sent down Jarred Tinordi and Gabriel Dumont this morning and recalled Beaulieu. This is all part of the Habs evalution process of seeing what their young defensemen in Hamilton can to at the NHL level.

Canadiens assistant coach Gerard Gallant coached Beaulieu for three years with the St John Seadogs in the QMJHL where they won the Memorial Cup together in 2011. In his first season with the Hamilton Bulldogs Beaulieu has 6 goals, 19 assists in 62 games.
