Carey Price will be in goal on Tuesday night against Columbus.

Al Montoya, backup to superstar Carey Price, was solid Monday night in the Montreal Canadiens' 4-3 overtime victory against the Devils in New Jersey.

Montoya stopped 34 shots in his first start since Feb. 11. He was the beneficiary of an impressive comeback by the Canadiens, who scored three goals in the third period to tie the game and send it into the extra period. Montoya's goals-against average is now 2.58 and his save percentage is .913. His record is 8-5-3.

Forward Alexander Radulov scored once and added three assists to help the Montreal Canadiens stage a dramatic comeback and beat the Devils 4-3 in overtime in New Jersey Monday night.

The Canadiens were down 1-0 after two periods and 2-0 early in the third when Radulov cut the Devils' lead to 2-1 with his 15th goal of the season at 2:49 of the third. After New Jersey regained a two-goal lead, Radulov picked up his 29th and 30th assists on goals by Montreal captain Max Pacioretty and then his 31st assist on the overtime winner by Alex Galchenyuk. Galchenyuk's goal, his 15th of the season, was posted at 2:54 of the OT period. Pacioretty's goals were his 30th and 31st of the season. His second was scored with 53 seconds left in regulation and set up the overtime. Defenseman Shea Weber assisted on the Canadiens' tying and winning goal and now has 22 assists on the season.

Michael McCarron will be a healthy scratch in Monday's game against the New Jersey Devils.

McCarron was a healthy scratch in Montreal's last game against Toronto, so the team won't make any lineup changes tonight. The big center has one goal and four assists in 21 games this season. Jordie Benn, who Montreal acquired from Dallas earlier today, will also sit out. Brian Flynn will also watch from the press box.

The Montreal Canadiens have acquired Jordie Benn from the Dallas Stars in exchange for Greg Pateryn and a 2017 fourth-round pick.

Benn is just in the first season of a three-year, $3.3 million deal, but the Stars might have lost him in the expansion draft if they didn't trade him. Benn has two goals and 15 points in 58 contests this season. He'll likely be a third-pairing defenseamn with Montreal.
Feb 27 - 5:15 PM

Al Montoya is expected to get the nod Monday night.

It will be Montoya's first start since Feb. 11. He has a 2.56 GAA and .913 save percentage in 16 games this season.
Feb 27 - 1:03 PM

The newly-constructed line of Alex Galchenyuk, Brendan Gallagher and Artturi Lehkonen looked strong against the Maple Leafs Saturday night.

Galchenyuk finally broke out of his scoring slump with a goal and an assist and played a very strong game with his new line mates. He also had four shots on goal and was a terrific 9-3 in the faceoff dot. Good news for all Galchenyuk owners who have suffered through his injury and then his slump.
Feb 26 - 10:23 AM

Carey Price made 32 saves on 34 shots Saturday night as the Canadiens defeated the Maple Leafs 3-2.

Price has been an uncertain value recently, but he made up for that Saturday. In the 10 games leading up to this victory, he accumulated a record of 3-7-0 with a save percentage of .908 and an average of 2.8 goals against. He rebounded against the Leafs with a .941 SV%.
Feb 25 - 10:16 PM

Andrew Shaw scored the game-winning goal in overtime and had an assist as the Canadiens beat the Maple Leafs 3-2 Saturday night.

Shaw took the puck from Tomas Plekanec at 1:06 in overtime and snuck the puck behind Frederik Andersen. Off balance, Shaw rifled a shot at the net and crashed into the boards, but it was good enough for the 14th consecutive win by the Habs over the Leafs. Shaw’s assist came on a power-play marker by Max Pacioretty in the second period.
Feb 25 - 9:54 PM

Brian Flynn, Michael McCarron and Greg Pateryn will each be scratched against the Maple Leafs on Saturday.

David Desharnais will return to action on Saturday against the Maple Leafs after sitting out the last six games as a healthy scratch.

Feb 25 - 5:52 PM
