Carey Price: First NHL start comes vs. Penguins
Canadiens head coach Guy Carbonneau will let heralded goalie Carey Price show what he can do against Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins tomorrow night on the road.

Also, Kyle Chipchura gets his first taste of action and defenceman Josh Gorges makes his season debut, with Mikhail Grabovski and rearguard Patrice Brisebois pulling up seats in the Pittsburgh press box.
