Montreal Canadiens News


The Canadiens have recalled Charlie Lindgren from Laval (AHL).

With Antti Niemi struggling mightily as of late, Lindgren comes up as a third goalie and could give Carey Price some rest down the stretch. The 25-year-old has gone 11-14-1 with a 2.94 GAA and 884 SV% in the AHL this season and is 7-8-2 with a 2.78 GAA and .914 SV% in 17 career NHL appearances.

Price will start Tuesday vs. the Red Wings.

Price gave up eight goals on 29 shots in the Canadiens blowout loss in Anaheim on Friday. Price is now 5-4-0 with a 2.82 GAA and .903 SV% in his last nine starts. Despite going through a rough patch, Price has an outstanding matchup with the Red Wings in town—he stopped 28 of 29 shots in an 8-1 win in Detroit two weeks ago.

Price will start Friday in Anaheim.

Price allowed one goal on 27 shots in the Canadiens win in Los Angeles on Tuesday. With Antti Niemi going last night, Price draws the great matchup tonight in Anaheim. He has won three of his last four starts while stopping 102 of the 110 shots (.927 SV%) that he has faced. With a win tonight, Price will break Jacques Plante’s Canadiens franchise record for wins with 315.

Price (illness) will start Tuesday in Los Angeles.

Price allowed four goals on 24 shots in the Canadiens loss to the Penguins on Saturday. The loss snapped a brief two-game winning streak for Price, who is 4-3-0 with a 2.33 GAA and .921 SV% in his last seven games. He makes for an excellent option against a Kings team that has lost 10 of their last 11 (1-6-4) while being outscored 45-to-30.
