Prust remains Game 3 option for Habs

Neither club showed lines at their optional morning skates Thursday. But Habs head coach Michel Therrien hinted at lineup changes while, of course, keeping those changes a secret until game time.

However, when asked about the availability of Brandon Prust, Therrien said Thursday morning that the gritty forward was an option for Game 3, again without specifying whether that meant Prust was playing or not.

Pure guess work, but here are possible line combos for Game 3:

Max Pacioretty-David Desharnais-Brendan Gallagher

Alex Galchenyuk-Tomas Plekanec-Brian Gionta

Rene Bourque-Lars Eller-Dale Weise

Michael Bournival-Daniel Briere-Thomas Vanek

As for the Rangers, if Derik Brassard remains out, we're likely looking at this up front:

Chris Kreider-Derek Stepan-Rick Nash

Carl Hagelin-Brad Richards-Martin St. Louis

Benoit Pouliot-Dominic Moore-Mats Zuccarello

Daniel Carcillo-Brian Boyle-Derek Dorsett
