Kotkaniemi (groin) will play one of the games during Montreal's Friday/Saturday back-to-back.

Kotkaniemi has missed the last six games but will play either Friday in Washington or Saturday vs. New Jersey. The Canadiens don't want the second-year centre to overdue it in his return from injury but it's a good sign that he'll play in at least one of the two games.

Price allowed two goals on 35 shots in the Canadiens win over the Blue Jackets on Tuesday. Price has won three of his last four starts (3-0-1) with a 2.70 GAA and .919 SV%. Despite playing well, he has a tough road assignment in Washington. The Capitals have not lost in regulation in over a month, going 11-0-2 with 4.38 goals per game in their last 13 games.

Weber (illness) is expected to play on Tuesday.

Weber missed Monday's practice and Tuesday's morning skate but head coach Claude Julien still expects him to play vs. the Blue Jackets. This is great news for Montreal because Weber has been scorching hot as of late, scoring five goals with six assists (11 points) in his last 11 games while playing 22:46 ATOI.

Kotkaniemi (groin) will travel to Philadelphia for Thursday's game.

Kotkaniemi missed three games with a groin injury but he will accompany the team to Philadelphia, which makes it possible for him to make his return to the lineup. The second-year centre has had a slow start to the year, scoring two goals with one assist in 12 games before getting hurt.

Price will start Tuesday vs. the Bruins.

Price gave up three goals on 39 shots I the Canadiens loss in Dallas on Saturday. The loss snapped a brief two-game winning streak for Price, who comes into Tuesday's game at 3-3-0 with a 2.55 GAA, .903 SV% and one shutout on home-ice. He was 2-2-0 with a 2.28 GAA, .938 SV% and one shutout vs. the Bruins last year but they are a ridiculous 11-1-2 and average 3.71 goals per game (3rd) this year, so beware.
