Price will start Game 2 against the Penguins.

Price was terrific in Game 1, stopping 39 of 41 shots in the Canadiens 3-2 overtime win. He was not sharp before the season was paused so the long layoff may have done the veteran some good. Price comes into Game 2 having not given up more than three goals in a game in his last 11 playoff starts.

Domi returned to the ice on Monday.

Domi sat out the first week of Phase 3 while deciding whether or not he will play in the Qualifying Round. Domi is at an increased risk as a Type-1 diabetic, so he took extra time to make his decision on the NHL's Return to Play program. During his first practice with the team, Domi took part in some drills and was featured on the second power-play unit.

The Canadiens have agrred to terms with Alexander Romanov on a three-year, entry-level contract.

Romanov was selected in the second-round (No.38 overall) in 2018 and is expected to make the leap into the NHL in 2020-21. The 20-year-old Russian blueliner has spent the last two seasons in the KHL, where he's played a limited role and tallied just 11 points (1G / 10A) in a combined 86 games for CSKA Moscow. However, while playing against players his own age in the 2019 and 2020 World Juniors, Romanov had two goals and 12 assists (14 points) in 14 games. Due to the current pause of the NHL season, the start date of the contract has yet to be determined.

The Canadiens signed Vasili Demchenko to a one-year, $700K contract.

Demchenko was an undrafted free agent goalie out of the KHL, who 9-17-3 with a .908 SV% in 36 games between Chelyabinsk Traktor and Magnitogorsk Metallurg. With Carey Price, Charlie Lindgren and Cayden Primeau all already under contract, Demchenko will likely start in a time-share in Laval (AHL) in 2021.

Price allowed four goals on 23 shots in the Canadiens loss in Tampa Bay last Thursday.
