Montreal Candiens Will Be Without Brian Gionta, Ryan White For Game 4


The Montreal Canadiens are heading in to crucial Game 4 against the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday night, but they will be without two key members of the team. Montreal captain Brian Gionta and forward Ryan White have both been ruled out for the contest due to upper body injuries.

Per Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette:

Gionta also missed Game 2 with an upper body injury, but there is no word on when White was injured.

In their absence, Jeff Halpern and Gabriel Dumont will step up for the Habs.

Montreal and Ottawa will drop the puck at 7 p.m. ET at Scotiabank Place. Ottawa currently leads the series 2-1. Hopefully they will be able to avoid another brawl.
