Carey Price allowed four goals on 26 shots in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Price has now dropped back-to-back starts, and he's given up three goals or more in eight of his last 10 games. It's possible that the Habs netminder is just feeling some fatigue during a demanding part of the schedule. Expect him to return to top form in the near future. Price has a 21-9-4 record with a 2.35 goals-against-average and a .920 save percentage.

Sven Andrighetto scored Montreal's only goal in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Penguins.

Andrighetto cut the Penguins' lead to 3-1 right before the end of the second period. Alexei Emelin and Artturi Lehkonen assisted on his second goal of the year. Andrighetto now has six points in 15 games this season. He shouldn't be on your fantasy radar.

Daniel Carr will be a healthy scratch when the Penguins roll into Montreal

Carr has appeared in 28 games, scoring once with seven points. Ryan Johnston will join him as the other scratch.
Jan 18 - 7:03 PM

Andrei Markov (lower body) won't play Wednesday night.

He is apparently making slow progress in his recovery, according to coach Michel Therrien. It was expected that Markov wouldn't be out much longer, but a timetable remains uncertain.

Carey Price is Montreal's starter for Wednesday's game.

Price stopped 19 of 20 shots on Monday, but he surrendered 11 goals in his previous two contests. He has a 2.29 GAA and .922 save percentage in 33 contests in 2016-17.
Jan 18 - 1:33 PM

Greg Pateryn (ankle) skated on Tuesday.

It was his first on-ice session since he suffered a fractured ankle on Dec. 6. Pateryn was slated to miss eight weeks, so a return in February remains on target.
Jan 18 - 10:24 AM

David Desharnais (knee) skated Tuesday at Montreal's practice facility.

Desharnais has sat out 19 games due to a knee injury. He hasn't played since Dec. 6 and was given a six-to-eight week timetable for his return. If that holds then he could be back later this month or in early February.
Jan 18 - 10:19 AM

Mike McCarron has been sent to the minors.

Montreal is getting healthier up front, McCarron was scratched Monday against Detroit. He has one goal and three assists in 15 games with big club this campaign.
Jan 17 - 12:41 PM

Alex Galchenyuk has one goal in two games since returning from a knee injury.

He was held off the scoresheet in Monday's 1-0 loss to the Detroit Red Wings. Galchenyuk's line, with Max Pacioretty and Alexander Radulov, combined for seven of Montreal's 18 shots in the match. Coach Michel Therrien expects Galchenyuk to keep getting better as he gets back into game shape.
Jan 17 - 10:25 AM

Max Pacioretty launched a team-high four shots in a 1-0 loss to Detroit on Monday.

The Canadiens as a team only got 18 shots on goal in this one, meaning that Pacioretty accounted for roughly 22% of their SOGs. He has 20 goals and 37 points in 45 games this season.
Jan 16 - 5:55 PM

Carey Price kicked out 19 of 20 shots in a 1-0 loss to Detroit Monday afternoon.

Price has now dropped three of his last four games, but this start can still be taken as a positive. This snapped a string of four contests where Price allowed at least three goals per game. He surrendered a total of 18 goals over that four-game span, which starkly contrasts his superb start to the 2016-17 campaign.
Jan 16 - 5:52 PM

Losing Andrei Markov (lower body) might be at the heart of the Canadiens' defensive woes.

Markov's absence probably can't fully account for Montreal's recent defensive decline, but the Canadiens were surrendering 2.13 goals per game before he was hurt and have given up 3.30 goals per game during his 13-contest absence. It's not clear when Markov will return, but he might not miss much more time.
Jan 16 - 11:42 AM

Carey Price will take on the Red Wings on Monday afternoon.

In 21 career afternoon games Price also has a sterling record. He's 12-6-3 with a .939 save percentage and a 1.84 GAA.
Jan 15 - 2:31 PM

Montreal summoned Jacob De La Rose from AHL St. John's on Sunday.

The 21-year-old already has 55 games of NHL experience, however he's posted just seven points in that time. This season with the IceCaps, he's picked up three goals and 15 points in 34 games.
Jan 15 - 1:51 PM

Chris Terry was sent to AHL St. John's after he cleared waivers on Sunday.

Through his age-27 season, Terry has posted four points along with 10 hits in 14 games. In 20 games for the IceCaps the veteran winger has 10 goals and 26 points.
