Ben Scrivens is expected to get the nod against Edmonton on Saturday.

It will be an opportunity for Scrivens to play against the team that traded him in late December. He has a 3.85 GAA and .873 save percentage in four starts this season.
Feb 5 - 12:39 PM

Lucas Lessio is expected to miss the next two-to-three weeks.

Lessio only ended up playing in one game with Montreal before getting hurt. He has 10 goals and 21 points in 42 AHL contests in 2015-16.
Feb 5 - 11:48 AM

Carey Price (lower body) was on the ice again Thursday for a solo skate without his goaltender equipment.

He has been seen walking with a limp and his skates haven't been that encouraging either because they have looked tentative. Price has been out since Nov. 25 with a lower-body injury, which is believed to be to a right knee problem. It still isn't clear when he'll be available to return, but it doesn't look like that will be any time soon.
Feb 5 - 8:30 AM

Alexei Emelin was back in the lineup on Wednesday night.

He was scratched for Tuesday's loss to Philadelphia because of a travel issue that caused him to miss Monday's practice. Emelin posted four hits, two blocks and a minus-1 rating against the Sabres in his return.
Feb 4 - 8:20 AM

Alex Galchenyuk scored in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to Buffalo.

He gave the Canadiens a 2-1 lead going into the third period when he scored on a slick backhand shot. Galchenyuk has recorded a point in each of his past three games.
Feb 4 - 8:14 AM

Goalie Mike Condon made 28 saves during the Canadiens' 4-2 loss to the visiting Buffalo Sabres Wednesday night.

Condon is now 13-15-4 with a goals-against average of 2.48 and a save percentage of only .905. Stay away from Condon in fantasy play. He's not enjoying much success in trying to fill the skates of injured superstar goalie Carey Price.
Feb 3 - 10:59 PM

Dale Weise scored his 12th goal of the season in the Montreal Canadiens' 4-2 loss to the visiting Buffalo Sabres Wednesday night.

Ditto for teammate Alex Galchenyuk. Weise and Galchenyuk scored their goals in the second period, when the Canadiens were able to take a 2-1 lead, only to allow three Buffalo goals in the third. Montreal now has lost four consecutive games and five straight at home. The Canadiens also have lost 21 of their past 26 games (5-20-1) since starting 19-4-3.
Feb 3 - 10:56 PM

Sven Andrighetto, Alex Emelin will be dressed on Wednesday night when the Montreal Canadiens host the Sabres

Mark Barberio and Lucas Lessio (injured) and Greg Pateryn will be scratches. Emelin missed Tuesday's game against Philadelphia for personal reasons but returns tonight. Andrighetto was scratched last game against Philadelphia and has cooled dramatically since scoring four goals in his first nine games this season.

Mike Condon will be between the pipes when the Montreal Canadiens host the Buffalo Sabres Wednesday night.

Condon allowed three goals on 35 shots in a 4-2 loss to Philadelphia on Tuesday and will be making a second straight start. He has a 13-14-4 record with 2.47 goals-against average and a sub-par .905 save percentage.
Feb 3 - 6:45 PM

Lucas Lessio will miss Wednesday's game due to an unspecified injury.

Lessio was called up on Jan. 31 and made his NHL season debut on Tuesday. Sven Andrighetto will draw into the lineup as a result of Lessio's injury.
Feb 3 - 4:53 PM

It doesn't sound like Carey Price is even close to returning.

Price hasn't played since Nov. 25 and at this point it's getting reasonable to wonder if he'll be back at all in 2015-16. His injury has been a tough pill for the Canadiens to swallow as they won their first nine games this season, but now own a 24-23-4 record and are in the midst of a free fall. Justly or not, the Canadiens' collapse since Price's injury has fed into the narrative that they're not a particularly strong team without their star goaltender.
Feb 3 - 4:50 PM

Jeff Petry scored his fifth goal of the season on Tuesday in a 4-2 loss to Philadelphia.

He tied the game at 2-2 early in the second period when the Flyers gave him plenty of room to pick his spot and beat Steve Mason. Petry has 16 points in 48 games in 2015-16.
Feb 3 - 8:54 AM

P.K. Subban picked up an assist in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to Philadelphia.

His point came on a power-play goal by Andrei Markov, but the man advantage let the Canadiens down in the third when they failed despite five minutes to work with. Subban finished with 30:12 of ice time, including 7:42 on the power play, and he was credited with five shots.
Feb 3 - 8:48 AM

Mike Condon allowed three goals on 35 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers.

Condon was beaten twice in the first frame, once by Wayne Simmonds and once by Brayden Schenn. Both goals came on the power play. He allowed the eventual game-winner to Simmonds halfway through the third period. Condon's record is now 13-14-4 to go along with a 2.47 goals-against-average and a .905 save percentage. He is 1-3 in his last four starts.
