Dustin Tokarski allowed three goals in Sunday's 3-2 loss to Arizona.
The Canadiens were up 2-0 after the first period and 2-1 after the second, but they couldn't hold on for the win. Tokarski had no chance on Arizona's first and third goals but he will definitely want to have Oliver Ekman-Larsson's game-tying goal back. Tokarski is now 5-4-1 with a 2.56 goals-against-average and a .916 save percentage. With Carey Price playing so well, don't expect Tokarski to get too many starts down the stretch. Feb 1 - 4:22 PM
