Chara, Pouliot to play tonight vs. Canadiens

The Bruins announced their lineup for Sunday's game against the Montreal Canadiens and both Zdeno Chara and Benoit Pouliot are slated to play. That means that Chara and Pouliot will not play tomorrow when the Bruins and Habs face off again at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

It's an interesting decision made by the Bruins coaching staff considering Chara and Puliot's history with Montreal. Chara, of course, was the subject of a criminal investigation in Monteral after laying a big hit on Max Pacioretty late last season. Pouliot was a member of the Canadiens last season and was signed by the Bruins as a free agent this offseason.

Maybe the Bruins feel like playing those two in Montreal might be more trouble than its worth during the preseason. Here's the full roster for Sunday night's game against the Canadiens in Halifax, Nova Scotia:Forwards: Campbell, Caron, Clark, Hamill, Horton, Marchand, Paille, Pouliot, Sauve, Seguin, Thornton, Whitfield Defensemen: Corvo, Chara, McKelvie, McQuaid, Kampfer, Warsofsky Goaltenders: Khudobin, Rask
