The Montreal Canadiens interim head coach Dominique Ducharme confirmed this morning that Jeff Petry, Jake Evans, and Jon Merrill will travel with the team to Vegas, despite the fact that they are unlikely to be available for game one on Monday night. The chartered jet for the Canadiens took off from Montreal at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday.



Merrill has been out the longest of the trio after suffering a lower-body injury during game five in their first round series against Toronto.

Both Evans and Petry were injured during Montreal's second round series against Winnipeg. Evans was concussed following a hit from Jets forward Mark Scheifele late in game one. Evans skated on Saturday morning before the team departed.




Petry reportedly dislocated two fingers in his right hand after catching them in the camera hole along the glass in game three, and was a game-time decision for game four, but did not play.

Vegas and Montreal will meet at T-Mobile Arena on Monday night for game one of their Stanley Cup semi-final series. Puck drop is set for 9 p.m. ET on CBC and Sportsnet.
