NOTES: Montreal defenseman Francis Bouillon played in 700th career NHL game. He's in his 13th season, with 10 seasons with the Canadiens. ... Montreal defenseman Tomas Kaberle, a Hurricane at the start of last season, was scratched after playing in the previous four games, though he was minus-2 Tuesday night at the New York Islanders. ... Tempers flared when Montreal's Weber drilled Carolina's Jeff Skinner, who a week earlier returned from a concussion. The sequence resulted in an interference penalty on Weber with 6:40 remaining in the first period and an ensuing roughing penalty on Carolina's Jordan Staal. ... Goalie Dan Ellis remains bothered by illness, so he served as the Carolina backup again. Teammate Riley Nash left the morning skate because he was sick. That meant Welsh was called up from Charlotte and put into the lineup. ... The Hurricanes placed center Tim Brent (upper body) on injured reserve. ... The Canadiens are three games into a season-long five-game road trip. The entire trip takes place across eight days.
