Alexander Radulov got a few stitches over his right eye after getting clipped in the face by a Logan Couture high-stick on Friday.

Radulov was pleading heavily as he skated off the ice in the third period, but he was able to speak to the media after the game and seemed to be fine. "It’s just a play," said Radulov. "I was trying to go to the net and their guy was trying to box me out. He tried to protect the slot area and not let me in. He went to lift my stick but I got passed him and my stick wasn’t there. His stick went under my shield and it was scary but it’s okay." He should be fine for Sunday's game against Los Angeles.

Max Pacioretty spent a portion of Friday's game against San Jose on a line with Alex Radulov and Alex Galchenyuk.

With the Canadiens struggle to score, again, coach Michel Therrien decided to try Pacioretty with the only two players that seem to be clicking right now. The Canadiens captain is having a hard time offensively this year. Pacioretty has scored 39, 37 and 30 goals over the last three seasons, but he has just five so far in 2016-17. He should be able to turn it around at some point this season.
Dec 3 - 10:11 AM

Alex Radulov left Friday's game against the Minnesota Wild after getting an accidental high stick from Logan Couture with under five minutes remaining in the game.

As Couture turned, his stick caught Radulov under his visor. Luckily, Radulov got the stick just below his right eyebrow and avoided any damage to his eye. No further updates have been released yet by the team. Consider his status day-to-day but he should be fine for Sunday's afternoon game against the Kings. A video of the incident can be viewed by clicking on the link found at the bottom of this post.

Carey Price stopped 28 of 30 shots in a 2-1 loss to the San Jose Sharks on Friday.

Price was great tonight but his teammates could barely muster up any offensive support for him. He made stop after stop, including a blocker save on a breakaway chance from Chris Tierney during the second period. He has now given up two goals or less in five of his last six games. His record drops to 13-3-1, with a 1.71 goals against average and .946 save percentage.
Dec 3 - 1:22 AM

Artturi Lehkonen scored the only goal for the Canadiens in a 2-1 loss to the San Jose Sharks on Friday.

Lehkonen's goal came with under two minutes to play but the Habs couldn't muster up anything else in the dying moments of the game. They have now only managed a late goal in consecutive games, and will need to find ways to score in a hurry before the end of their west coast road trip. The goal marks the first point Lehkonen has recorded in his last nine games played and he currently sits at four points in 15 games played this season. We wouldn't recommend adding him at the moment.
Dec 3 - 1:16 AM

Daniel Carr will be a healthy scratch against the Sharks on Friday.

Through the first 34 games of his NHL career, Carr has posted just seven goals and 11 points. Which includes two points in 11 games this season. It doesn't seem as though he's found his way with the big boys just yet.
Dec 2 - 9:30 PM

Zach Redmond will watch Friday's match with the Sharks from the press box.

Despite completing his conditioning stint with AHL St. John's, the veteran defender will have to wait a bit longer to make his season debut for Montreal.
Dec 2 - 9:29 PM

After a nine game absence with an upper-body injury, Brian Flynn will return to Montreal's lineup Friday night in San Jose.

Flynn is slated to skate to the right of Phillip Danault and Torrey Mitchell on the fourth line. In 76 games over the last two season with the Habs, the veteran forward has just 12 points.
Dec 2 - 9:27 PM

Carey Price will tempt the waters of San Jose.

So to speak, anyway. Price has played the Sharks well over his career, even if the wins haven't necessarily followed. In seven games he's 2-4-1 with a .924 save percentage and a 2.70 GAA. We'd still go ahead and roll with the former-MVP.
Dec 2 - 6:20 PM

Carey Price will be between the pipes for Friday's game against San Jose.

It will be his sixth straight start. Price was in goal for just his second regulation loss of the season on Tuesday when the Canadiens dropped a 2-1 decision to Anaheim. He has 12 wins along with a 1.68 goals-against average and .947 save percentage this season in 16 appearances.
Dec 2 - 8:28 AM

Brian Flynn is poised to return from an upper-body injury on Friday night.

He was on the ice Thursday morning for practice alongside Torrey Mitchell and Phillip Danault. "We'll take a final decision tomorrow, but he looked good in practice," said coach Michel Therrien on Thursday. "I liked the way that line played earlier this season. They're solid defensively, but they're also capable to score." Chris Terry was returned to the minors, which is a good indication that Flynn is ready. He has missed nine games due to the ailment.
Dec 2 - 8:23 AM

Chris Terry has been reassigned to the AHL.

Terry has an assist in five games this season. He also has five goals and 15 points in 14 AHL contests.
Dec 1 - 3:33 PM

Carey Price made 36 saves and let two pucks get behind him as the Montreal Canadiens lost a 2-1 contest to the Anaheim Ducks Tuesday night.

It is difficult to blame him for the loss with a save percentage of .947. That was the third straight week in which he flirted with .950 or better. Price still has to be considered one of the go-to goalies for fantasy players with a record of 13-2-1 and only a 1.66 Goals Against Average.
Nov 30 - 1:35 AM

Andrew Shaw scored the only goal in a 2-1 loss to the Anaheim Ducks Tuesday night.

Shaw earned a goal in his first game of the season, but then went 13 more without another. He turned a little corner on November 12th in a 5-0 victory over the Detroit Red Wings with his second goal of the year and he has had three more in the past eight games. That makes him an interesting dark horse.
Nov 30 - 12:57 AM

Zach Redmond will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Anaheim Ducks.

Redmond still hasn't played in a game this season because of a broken foot. Now that he's completed a conditioning stint in the AHL, he should get into the lineup relatively soon. Chris Terry will also watch the game from the press box.
