Carey Price turned away 12 of 16 shots as Team Foligno's starter during Sunday's All-Star Game.

Price put forth a quality effort, but the passing ultimately beat him as Team Foligno caught him looking the wrong way more than once. Undeterred, he tried multiple Hasekian-type saves. Through 36 regular season games, Price is 24-10-2 with 77 goals against. Montreal meanwhile sits third in the Atlantic with 61 points, just three back of conference-leading Tampa Bay.

The Montreal Canadiens have recalled Christian Thomas from the Hamilton Bulldogs of the AHL.

The Habs sent Thomas down after their last game before the break, and now that the break is about to end, they will need his services again. The 22-year-old has no points in three games for Montreal this season.

Carey Price will get the start for Team Foligno in Sunday's All-Star game.

Price will go head-to-head with Roberto Luongo in the first period. After Price, Penguins' goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury will play for Team Toews' in the second period, and Brian Elliot will be between the pipes in the third.

Carey Price will be Team Foligno's starting goalie in Sunday's All-Star game.

A fine choice, and also telling given that Price was Team Foligno's first goalie selection. Price is having a career season with a 24-10-2 record through 36 games played, and incredibly, he's also allowed just 77 goals.

Carey Price was the first goaltender taken by team Foligno in Friday's NHL All-Star game player draft.

Joining Price in the Team Foligno crease are Penguins' goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury and Blues' goaltender Brian Elliot. The order in which they start has yet to be determined, but Price will probably be able to decide which period he wants to play in.
Jan 23 - 10:02 PM

Christian Thomas has been assigned to AHL Hamilton.

Several teams that aren't scheduled to play on Wednesday have returned players to the minors so that they can continue to play over the All-Star break. Thomas has nine goals and 14 points in 29 AHL contests in 2014-15.
Jan 21 - 12:46 PM

Alex Galchenyuk scored his second goal in two games on Tuesday.

He went nine straight games without finding the back of the net before that. Galchenyuk has produced 12 goals on the year, but Tuesday's marker against Nashville was his first on the power play.

Carey Price was superb on Tuesday night as he blocked 36 of 37 shots en route to a 2-1 overtime win against Nashville.

The Canadiens were thoroughly outplayed by the Predators in this contest, but Price was the only reason it remained competitive in the early going. After a brief upper-body injury, the Montreal superstar seems to be back to normal and he now sports a 24-10-2 record to go along with a 2.15 GAA and a .929 save percentage.
Jan 20 - 11:25 PM

P.K. Subban scored a power-play goal in overtime to lift the Canadiens to a 2-1 win over Nashville Tuesday night.

The game-winner was the 11th goal of the campaign for the offensive-minded blueliner and his third tally in four games. Subban also recorded an assist on Alex Galchenyuk's third period marker to give him 31 points in 45 games.
Jan 20 - 11:19 PM

PA Parenteau will miss his second straight game on Tuesday night against Nashville.

Parenteau is recovering from a concussion, with no timetable to speak of. He has six goals and 15 points through 40 games this season.
Jan 20 - 7:18 PM

Tom Gilbert will play Tuesday versus Nashville.

He was a healthy scratch on Saturday, but this time Mike Weaver will be in the press box. Gilbert has seven points in 41 games with the Canadiens this campaign.
Jan 20 - 5:29 PM

Carey Price will be back in Montreal's crease on Tuesday night.

He will get the nod against Nashville after missing Saturday's 6-4 win over the New York Islanders because of an upper-body injury. Price has been outstanding this season, while sporting a 23-10-2 record to go along with a .927 save percentage and a 2.19 GAA.
Jan 20 - 12:49 PM

Carey Price (upper body) was back on the ice at practice on Monday.

He's going to see how he feels Tuesday morning, but there's a chance that he will be in goal for the Canadiens against Nashville. Price sat out Saturday's match versus the Islanders because of an upper-body injury.
Jan 20 - 10:41 AM

P. A. Parenteau is dealing with concussion-like symptoms.

Parenteau missed Saturday's game with what was initially reported as an illness. Concussions don't come with a timetable in the same way a broken bone does, so we can't speculate on how long Parenteau will be absent. He didn't participate in Monday's practice. During his absence, it looks like Brendan Gallagher will get some playing time alongside Alex Galchenyuk and David Desharnais.
Jan 19 - 12:16 PM

Dale Weise skated on the top line with Max Pacioretty and Tomas Plekanec during Saturday's 6-4 win against the Islanders.

He scored his sixth goal of the year just 10 seconds into the second period. Weise has been shuffled between lines in 2014-15, so he probably won't remain on the top unit for very long. He is having a career year offensively with 16 points in 41 games. "I have so much more confidence," Weise said. "I feel like a different player this year. I felt like a different player when I got here last year."
