Habs Pregame ReportWhile the US is getting covered with the fluffy white stuff, us Habs fans are going to be enjoying tonight's game in the cold. It's been a while since the last Habs game but get ready to watch 17 games in the nedxt 33 days. If you're like me and don't give a sh*t about the All-Star weekend, this will definitely makeup for it. And to add to the good news, Price has made it back to Montreal healthy and will be facing the stars who now have one of the biggest stars in the League (no pun intended). Chiarelli must be kicking himself in his ass for getting rid of Seguin at 21!
Price has a 2.19 goals-against average and a .927 save percentage, are you happy that he's back in the lineup or would you have preferred that we play the injured card during the all-star game? Let us know in the comments.
Parenteau is out with a concussion suffered last game (maybe going back to his previous concussion) and Weaver will be replaced with Gilbert tonight.
The Canadiens have recalled goalie Joey MacDonald from the Bulldogs to be the backup as Tokarski gets the start vs the New York Islanders tonight. Price's injury isn't considered serious and the Canadiens are only saying it's an upper body injury. I think Price could use the rest regardless, it's time for the team to show some heart and win an important game tonight.
