Dustin Tokarski will get the start in Thursday's game against Los Angeles.

The Habs have dropped both games of their West Coast trip with Carey Price in goal and they are turning to their backup to get the job done. The 25-year-old has just one win in his last five starts and has an overall record of 5-5-2 with a 2.70 goals-against-average and a .914 save percentage.
Mar 5 - 8:24 PM

Montreal goaltender Dustin Tokarski, filling in for Canadiens first-stringer Carey Price, turned aside 35 Ottawa shots but was charged with a loss in Ottawa.

The Sens prevailed 4-2, outshooting the Habs 44-39. Tokarski`s record is now at .500 (5-5-2). His goals-against average shot up to 2.70 and his save percentage is .914. Tokarski`s an adequate backup goalie but he`s not a viable fantasy option as Price is quite possibly the best goalie and best player in the NHL this season and won`t warm the bench very often.
Feb 18 - 10:09 PM

Dustin Tokarski will start in Wednesday's game against Ottawa.

Carey Price is getting a breather ahead of Thursday's contest versus Florida. Tokarski has a 5-4-2 record, 2.67 GAA, and .914 save percentage in 12 games this season.
Feb 17 - 4:05 PM

Dustin Tokarski allowed four goals on 38 shots in Thursday's overtime loss to the Edmonton Oilers.

Tokarski falls to 5-4-2 on the season with a .914 save percentage and 2.67 goals against average in relief to Carey Price. The Oilers tied the game with just 25 seconds left on the clock in the third, and then finished the job in overtime.

Dustin Tokarski will be the Montreal Canadiens' starter on Thursday.

It will be Tokarski's first start since Feb. 1. He has a solid 2.56 GAA and .916 save percentage in 11 contests, but he's also allowed at least three goals in each of his last three games.
Feb 11 - 3:08 PM

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

Dustin Tokarski will get the start in Sunday's game against Arizona.

Starter Carey Price is coming off back-to-back incredible performances which Montreal won 1-0. Tokarski has a 5-3-1 record with a 2.50 goals-against-average and a .917 save percentage this season. Take note that this game starts at 1:00 PM EST.
Feb 1 - 11:29 AM

Dustin Tokarski made 27 saves in the Canadiens’ 6-4 win over the Islanders on Saturday night.

Luckily for him, Jaroslav Halak was considerably worse. Tokarski was making second straight start (and second since Dec. 30) and could be in line for another start or two with Carey Price dealing with an upper-body injury. Tokarski has a 2.50 goals-against average and .917 save percentage.
Jan 17 - 10:12 PM

Dustin Tokarski will make the start Saturday night against the Islanders.

Carey Price will not play due to an upper-body injury he sustained against the Blue Jackets Wednesday night after a collision with Matt Calvert. Joey MacDonald has been recalled from the AHL to back up Tokarski. Tokarski is looking to rebound from a 4-1 loss to Ottawa Thursday night and he will have his work cut out for him facing a strong Islander squad.
Jan 17 - 10:50 AM

Dustin Tokarski made 31 stops on 34 shots in a 4-1 loss to Ottawa on Thursday night.

Tokarski played well but his team couldn't sustain much offense in front of him. The 25-year-old falls to 4-3-1 this season with a .922 save percentage and 2.33 goals against average. With Carey Price ahead of him on the depth chart, Tokarski does not get many starts in the Habs' goal.
Jan 15 - 11:51 PM

Dustin Tokarski will be between the pipes for Montreal Thursday against the Ottawa Senators.

Number one netminder Carey Price made 14 stops in a 3-2 win over Columbus on Wednesday and he'll get the night off. Tokarski has been a seldom-used backup this year, but he has played well when given the opportunity. He has a 4-2-1 record to go with a .924 save percentage and a 2.23 GAA this season.
Jan 15 - 5:40 PM

Dustin Tokarski was sharp for the Canadiens Tuesday as they outlasted the Panthers in a shootout by a score of 2-1.

Tokarski received a rare starting opportunity against Florida and he made the best of it by blocking 36 of 37 shots in the victory. He doesn't receive a whole lot of playing time, but he's worth a look in DFS games when he starts. He possesses a 2.23 GAA and a .924 save percentage to go along with a 4-2-1 record.

Dustin Tokarski will get the nod Tuesday night in Florida.

Through five starts and seven games Tokarski is sporting a .914% save percentage and 2.44 GAA for the Habs.
Tue, Dec 30, 2014 05:50:00 PM

Dustin Tokarski will probably see action in Montreal's goal next week.

The Canadiens will play on back-to-back occasions twice, so Tokarski could play two games. Montreal will play road games in Carolina (Monday), Florida (Tuesday), New Jersey (Friday) and Pittsburgh (Saturday). The backup netminder hasn't played since Nov. 29 because of workhorse number one Carey Price.
