Carey Price made 23 saves in a 4-1 loss to the Boston Bruins on Saturday night.

The Montreal Canadiens will have Carey Price in goal Saturday against the Boston Bruins.

The goaltending switch will be the only change for the Canadiens tonight from their big win over the Washington Capitals a couple of days ago. Coincidentally, Price's last start was a 4-1 loss to the Bruins when he allowed three goals on 31 shots. His record currently sits at 13-15-4 record with a 2.96 goals-against-average and a .908 save percentage.

Jakub Jerabek registered an assist in Friday's 3-2 win over the Washington Capitals.

Jerabek helped set up Paul Byron's tally at the 10:41 mark of the second period gave the Canadiens a 2-1 lead at the time. The rookie blue liner has now picked up a point in three consecutive games. He has one goal and four points in 20 games this season.

Paul Byron scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 3-2 win over the Washington Capitals.

Byron recently moved from wing to center and that hasn't stopped him from producing. He's currently riding a three-game point streak. He's also accumulated at least one point in four of his last five contests. Byron is up to 13 goals and 20 points in 46 games this season.
Jan 20 - 9:45 AM

Antti Niemi turned aside 24 of 26 shots in Friday's 3-2 win over the Washington Capitals.

The win was Niemi's first as a Montreal Canadien and his first of the season. The veteran came up with a couple of big saves late in the game to preserve Montreal's slim lead. Niemi owns a 1-5-1 record with a 4.44 goals-against-average and a .871 save percentage this season. Even though he won tonight, Niemi still doesn't need to be owned in any fantasy format.

Max Pacioretty scored two goals and an assist in Friday's 3-2 win over the Washington Capitals.

Pacioretty opened the scoring with a power play goal at the 7:08 mark of the second period. He then gave the Canadiens a 3-1 lead with an empty-netter at the 18:42 mark of the third frame (that proved to be the game-winning goal). Pacioretty also registered the primary assist on Paul Byron's tally in the third frame. After going through a long slump, the Canadiens captain has certainly come alive over the last few games. Pacioretty has now found the back of the net six times in his last six contests. He's up to 14 goals and 28 points in 46 games this season.
Jan 19 - 10:14 PM

Daniel Carr will be a healthy scratch in Friday's game against the Washington Capitals.

Carr played just over 11 minutes in Montreal's last game against Boston on Wednesday night. The Canadiens forward has three goals and 10 points in 16 games this season. Joe Morrow will also watch the game from the press box.
Jan 19 - 7:20 PM

Logan Shaw will make his Canadiens' debut on Friday.

Shaw was claimed off waivers from Anaheim on Monday, but he was a healthy scratch on Wednesday. Look for him to play on the fourth line in his Habs debut. He had two goals and eight points in 42 contests with Anaheim this season.
Jan 19 - 1:23 PM

Antti Niemi will play between the pipes for Montreal Friday night.

Niemi's getting a tough assignment as the Canadiens will be up against Washington. He has a 0-5-1 record, 4.85 GAA, and .865 save percentage in nine contests this season.
Jan 19 - 1:10 PM

Jacob De La Rose didn't last long in Montreal's top-six forward group.

De La Rose started Wednesday's game between Jonathan Drouin and Alex Galchenyuk, but seven minutes into the second period he was back on the fourth line. The 22-year-old forward has only one goal and three helpers in 26 games this season.
Jan 19 - 10:38 AM

Jonathan Drouin's time on the wing was short-lived on Wednesday night.

Drouin was back at center midway through the second period and Jacob De La Rose was dropped down to the fourth line. Drouin's three-game point streak came to an end in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to Boston. He has disappointed this season with six goals and 21 points through 40 matches.
Jan 18 - 9:28 AM

Carey Price allowed three goals on 31 shots in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Boston Bruins.

The Canadiens opened the scoring with a Jakub Jerabek goal just 31 seconds into the game, but they allowed the Bruins to score the next four goals. Price has now dropped three straight games (0-2-1). He's given up 11 goals during that stretch. He'll enter his next outing with a 13-15-4 record with a 2.96 goals-against-average and a .908 save percentage this season. Price is still a quality netminder, but the team in front of him isn't very good.
Jan 17 - 10:44 PM

Jakub Jerabek scored his first NHL goal in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Boston Bruins.

Jerabek opened the scoring just 31 seconds into the game, but that's the only goal the Canadiens were able to muster against their old rivals. The rookie blue liner finished the night with a plus-1 rating, two shots on goal, two blocked shots and two hits in 20:32 of ice time. Jerabek now has three points in 19 games this season. All three of those points have come in his last two contests. Charles Hudon and Paul Byron picked up the assists on Montreal's only goal.
