Montreal (9-4-2) at St. Louis (6-8-1), 6:00 pm EST
ST. LOUIS (Ticker) — After losing four of their last five
games, the Montreal Canadiens hope to get back to their winning
ways when they visit the St. Louis Blues on Sunday.
Trudging through a 1-3-1 stretch after starting the season
8-1-1, the Canadiens begin a three-game road trip with this one.
The Canadiens are coming off a 2-1 loss to the Philadelphia
Flyers on Saturday.
Carey Price was rested in favor of Jaroslav Halak against
Philadelphia and will likely be back in net. The 21-year-old
Price is 7-3-1 with a 2.68 goals-against average. He has never
faced the Blues.
Price failed to stymie the Boston Bruins on Thursday, though,
getting peppered for six goals on 31 shots in a 6-1 trouncing.
Meanwhile, St. Louis snapped a six-game losing streak with a 4-3
overtime victory against the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday,
ending a disappointing five-game road trip on a positive note.
Andy McDonald scored two goals, while David Perron and Cam
Paddock each added a tally as the Blues won for the second time
since October 18, when they capped a 4-1-0 start to the season.
Blues veteran left wing Paul Kariya missed his fourth game with
an injured foot and his status for this game is uncertain.
