Price will start Friday in New York.
Primeau will make his first career start Thursday vs. the Avalanche.
The Canadiens recalled Otto Leskinen from Laval (AHL) on Wednesday.
Leskinen was an undrafted free agent that came to North America this year after spending the last three full seasons in Finland. The 22-year-old defenseman has recorded one goal and 11 assists (12 points) in 24 games with Laval so far this year.
The Canadiens have reassigned Gustav Olofsson to Laval (AHL).
Olofsson appeared in three games with the Canadiens during his call-up but heads back to the AHL where he has seven assists in 20 games with Laval this season.
Kinkaid has cleared waivers and been assigned to Laval (AHL).
Kinkaid had a terrible start to his Canadiens' career, going 1-1-3 with a 4.24 and .875 SV% in six appearances. With two quality goaltending prospects in the AHL, he was waived and will not split time with Charlie Lindgren with Laval after clearing waivers on Tuesday afternoon.
Price will start Tuesday vs. the Islanders.
Price allowed three goals on 34 shots in the Canadiens' loss in Boston on Sunday. Price played a lot better than in recent games but still lost his sixth straight game with a 4.90 GAA and .840 SV%. Those numbers are horrendous but tonight Montreal hosts an Islanders team that played in Detroit last night and are 2-2-1 while scoring just 1.60 goals per game in their last five games.

Hudon will be a healthy scratch on Tuesday.
Hudon has played in eight straight games but will be replaced by Matthew Peca on Tuesday night. Hudon has just one assist and a minus-4 rating in eight games this season.
Peca will make his season debut on Tuesday.
Peca has 12 points (4G / 8A) in 18 games with Laval (AHL) this season and was called up on Monday. He'll take Charles Hudon's spot in the lineup and comes in with 17 points (6G / 11A) in 59 career NHL games.
The Canadiens have recalled Matthew Peca from Laval (AHL).
Peca appeared in 39 games with Montreal last year but spent the first two months with Laval this season. The 26-year-old has 12 points (4G / 8A) with the Rocket and 17 points (6G / 11A) in 59 career NHL games.
The Canadiens have recalled Cayden Primeau from Laval (AHL).
Primeau, 20, was a seventh-round pick of the Canadiens in 2017. After two years at Northeastern University, he turned pro this year and is 7-4-1 with a 2.58 GAA and .910 SV%. Primeau could make his NHL debut during the Habs' back-to-back on Thursday/Friday.
Mete is expected to miss at least two weeks with an ankle injury.
Mete was hurt on Saturday night, missed Sunday's game and will miss at least two weeks with an ankle injury. With Mete out, Gustav Olofsson is expected to remain with the Canadiens moving forward.
Kulak will draw into the Canadiens lineup on Sunday.
Kulak sat as a healthy scratch on Saturday but will draw in for the injured Victor Mete on Sunday. Kulak will likely skate with Victor Olofsson on the third-pairing.
Mete (lower-body) did not travel to Boston for Sunday's game.
Mete was forced to leave Saturday's game against Philadelphia with a lower-body and did not return. Head coach Claude Julien told reporters postgame that Mete will not accompany the team to Boston, so look for Mike Reilly or Brett Kulak to draw into the lineup for him.

Price will start Sunday in Boston.
Price allowed five goals on 34 shots in the Canadiens' loss to the Devils on Thursday. Price is in the middle of a terrible stretch, losing five in a row (0-4-1) with a 5.34 GAA and .822 SV% and draws a terrible matchup in Boston on Sunday. He struggled in November last year, so maybe seeing the calendar flip to December will be enough for him to figure things out, but this matchup is for only the most desperate of owners.

Kulak will be a healthy scratch on Saturday.
Kulak played on Thursday but will be a healthy scratch for the third time in four games on Saturday. With Kulak out, Cale Fleury will draw back into the lineup.
Fleury will be back in the Canadiens lineup on Saturday.
Fleury was a healthy scratch on Thursday but will replace Mike Reilly in the lineup on Saturday. Fleury has had a slow start offensively, posting just one goal and no assists in 19 games.
Reilly will be a healthy scratch on Saturday.
Reilly played in three straight games, picking up two assists, but will be replaced by Gustav Olofsson on the blueline on Saturday.
Olofsson will make his Canadiens debut on Saturday.
Olofsson was recently called up from Laval (AHL) after collecting seven assists in 20 games. Olofsson has appeared in 56 career NHL games (all with Minnesota) since being drafted in the second-round in 2013. Olofsson will replace Brett Kulak on the Canadiens' third-pair.
Kinkaid will start Saturday vs. the Flyers.
Kinkaid gave up three goals on 13 shots after replacing Carey Price in Montreal's blowout loss to the Bruins on Tuesday. Kinkaid has had a really difficult time this season, allowing at least three goals in all five of his outings, going 1-1-2 with a 4.29 GAA and .877 SV%. Until he can get back on-track, he shouldn't be considered as a spot-start option.
