Steve Ott will face one of his former clubs on Tuesday.

Ott will skate between Dwight King and Torrey Mitchell on Montreal's fourth line. He has a point and a fight with 30 hits in seven games since joining Montreal. He spent the first 10 years of his career with Dallas after being drafted 25th overall in 2000.

Zach Fucale has been summoned from the minors on an emergency basis.

He will serve as Montreal's backup goalie on Tuesday night. Al Montoya was injured during the morning skate.
Mar 28 - 12:04 PM

Carey Price will be in the crease Tuesday night versus Dallas.

He was initially going to get the night off, but an injury to Al Montoya at the morning skate resulted in a change of plans. Price has 34 wins along with a 2.25 goals-against average and a .923 save percentage in 57 starts this season.

Al Montoya suffered a lower-body injury during Tuesday's morning skate.

He was expected to start against Dallas, but now Carey Price will get the nod. Montreal may have to call someone up from the minors to serve as the backup goalie.

Alex Galchenyuk's defensive woes limited him to a season-low 11:51 of ice time on Saturday night.

He has posted a minus-1 rating in each of his last three appearances despite having a goal and an assist during that span. Galchenyuk has been getting some tough love from coach Claude Julien.
Mar 28 - 10:46 AM

Max Pacioretty hasn't scored a goal in six straight games.

He earned an assist on Saturday against Ottawa, but he has produced just two goals and five points in 11 outings this March.
Mar 28 - 10:41 AM

Victor Mete has inked a three-year, entry-level contract with the Montreal Canadiens.

Mete's contract will begin with the 2017-18 campaign. He had 15 goals and 44 points in 50 OHL games this season. Montreal took him with the 100th overall pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.
Mar 27 - 11:17 AM

With his two goals Saturday night, Andrei Markov ended a 15-game goalless drought.

Markov had not scored a goal since February 18th against the Jets, so he was due. The 38-year-old rearguard is putting up another strong season with 35 points in 56 games.

Alex Galchenyuk seems to have found his game on the wing.

The Habs moved Galchenyuk off his first-line center position alongside Max Pacioretty and Alexander Radulov to the third unit where he plays wing alongside Andrew Shaw and Artturi Lehkonen. If you are a Galchenyuk owner you are happy he is playing better but not happy about his current spot in the lineup. The good news is that the talented forward still gets plenty of ice time on the power play.
Mar 26 - 10:26 AM

Carey Price made 31 saves Saturday night as the Canadiens beat the Senators 3-1.

Price has been stout this with a season average of .922 and quite a few near perfect games. This was the 16th time in 2016-17 that he posted a save percentage of .960 or better and in all but three of those contests he let in only one goal; his other three efforts ended in a shutout.
Mar 26 - 12:52 AM

Andrei Markov scored two goals and had an assist in the 3-1 victory of the Canadiens over the Senators Saturday night.

Markov had a piece of all three Canadiens goals. He buried the game winner at the 1:13 mark of the second and later had an unassisted, power-play goal. Markov now has six goals and 35 points for the season.
Mar 25 - 10:55 PM

Nathan Beaulieu will be back on the ice Saturday night as the Canadiens take on the Senators.

He was a healthy scratch Thursday. In his last 11 games, Beaulieu has scored five points with one goal and four assists. He had one goal and one assist against Ottawa on March 19th. That was one of three occasions in which he earned multiple points.
Mar 25 - 6:50 PM

Carey Price will be between the pipes for Saturday's tilt against the Ottawa Senators.

Price was able to beat Ottawa last weekend, but the Canadiens followed that up by losing to Detroit and Carolina on home ice. This is a huge game for both teams. Ottawa is just one point behind Montreal for top spot in the Atlantic Division standings. Price has a 33-18-5 record with a 2.27 goals-against-average and a .922 save percentage.
