“You look at the way Bobby has been playing and he has been awesome,” Stolarz said after making 17 saves in a 5-2 win over the Blue Jackets.

“And as the backup, you have to know your role and you have to be ready. I enjoy that challenge, enjoy when my name gets called. When that happens, I want to perform well. The attitude does not change. When you have a competitor like Bobby on the other end of the ice, you want to match his shot-for-shot. I think that makes it a great relationship. We just feed off each other.”

Jake Allen will start in net for the Montreal Canadiens.

He is 4-6-2 with a .904 save percentage and a 3.43 goals-against average.
