Mark Barberio won't play in Saturday's game against the Colorado Avalanche.

Barberio was recalled from the minors last night, but because he played in the AHL yesterday, the Canadiens will opt not to use him.
Dec 10 - 12:54 PM

Michael McCarron won't play in Saturday's game against the Colorado Avalanche.

McCarron was recalled from the minors on Friday night, but he won't play tonight because he played an AHL game yesterday. With injuries piling up for the Canadiens, McCarron might get a chance to play soon.
Dec 10 - 12:51 PM

Mike McCarron has been summoned up from AHL St. John's by Montreal.

The 20-year-old has just two points through the first 20 games of his NHL games. So far through 20 games he has 11 points for St. John's, so we wouldn't expect much from him.
Dec 9 - 9:23 PM

The Montreal Canadiens recalled Mark Barberio from AHL St. John's on Friday.

The veteran tweener has a helper in six games with Montreal already this season. He has 28 points in 139 career sporadically played games, so we wouldn't expect much from him unfortunately.
Dec 9 - 9:21 PM

Max Pacioretty scored a goal in Thursday's win over New Jersey.

He also recorded five shots in the match. Coach Michel Therrien confirmed a report that Pacioretty played through a microfracture in his foot during November. He is better now though and his production has gone up recently.
Dec 9 - 8:57 AM

Andrew Shaw picked up two helpers in Thursday's 5-2 victory versus New Jersey.

He picked up assists on goals by Philip Danault and Artturi Lehkonen in the contest. Shaw has produced 13 points in 27 matches this season.
Dec 9 - 8:52 AM

Brendan Gallagher earned two assists in Montreal's 5-2 win against New Jersey.

He had the primary helper on both goals by Torrey Mitchell in the contest. Gallagher has been productive lately despite his lack of goals, with six points in the last seven outings.
Dec 9 - 8:49 AM

Torrey Mitchell scored a pair of goals in Montreal's 5-2 win over New Jersey on Thursday night.

He is being tasked with centering Montreal's second line between Brendan Gallagher and Paul Byron. Mitchell has seven goals and nine points in 27 games this season. He had gone 12 straight contests without a point prior to Thursday's match and he hadn't scored a goal since Nov. 2 versus Vancouver.
Dec 9 - 8:43 AM

Carey Price stopped 19 of 21 shots in Thursday's 5-2 win over the New Jersey Devils.

The interesting part of this game came late in the first period when Devils forward Kyle Palmieri lost an edge and crashed into Price. The Canadiens goalie was furious with Palmieri. Price punched Palmieri with his blocker once in the head and two more times in the body. The Habs netminder picked up four minutes for roughing on the play, while Palmieri got two minutes for interference. It's important to remember that Price has dealt with his share of injuries in the last few seasons. The 29-year-old has a 15-3-1 record with a 1.83 goals-against-average and a .940 save percentage. He's the best fantasy option at his position.
Dec 9 - 1:04 AM

Phillip Danault scored a goal and an assist in Thursday's 5-2 win over the New Jersey Devils.

Not bad for a guy who was a game time decision because of an illness. The Canadiens put together an impressive performance considering it was their first game back from a long road trip. They were also without Alex Galchenyuk and David Desharnais tonight. In their absence, Danault stepped up. He opened the scoring by tipping in a Nathan Beaulieu shot in the first period and he also assisted on Artturi Lehkonen's second period goal. Danault has six goals and five assists in 27 games this season. He doesn't have any value in standard leagues.
Dec 9 - 12:57 AM

Greg Pateryn will miss the next eight weeks with a fractured ankle.

Pateryn won't be back until at least February, unfortunately. He picked up five points in 19 games with 30 hits and 37 blocks.
Dec 8 - 7:04 PM

Greg Pateryn missed Thursday's practice due to an undisclosed injury.

Montreal described Pateryn as taking a therapy day, but the Canadiens also called him a game-time decision. He has a goal and five points in 19 games this season.
Dec 8 - 12:50 PM

Nathan Beaulieu (neck) will be in the Canadiens' lineup on Thursday.

Beaulieu was sidelined for six straight games. He has a goal and five assists in 20 games this season.
Dec 8 - 12:46 PM

Phillip Danault (illness) will be a game-time decision on Thursday.

Danault wasn't able to participate in Thursday's practice. Despite that, it sounds like the odds are in favor of him playing.
Dec 8 - 12:39 PM

Carey Price will be the Canadiens' starter on Thursday.

Price got a breather on Tuesday, so it's not surprising to see him get the nod Thursday night. He has a 14-3-1 record, 1.82 GAA, and .942 save percentage in 18 contests in 2016-17.
