Peter Budaj will get the start in goal when the Canadiens take on the Oilers Thursday night in Edmonton (9:30 p.m., TSN-HABS, RDS, TSN Radio 690).
Carey Price started the first three games, including Wednesday’s 3-2 loss to the Flames in Calgary, posting a 1-2-0 record with a 2.70 goals-against average and .907 save percentage.
Budaj appeared in 13 games last season, posting an 8-1-1 record with a 2.29 GAA and .908 save percentage.
Only five players took part in Thursday’s morning skate in Edmonton: Budaj, Price, Michael Bournival, Ryan White and Nathan Beaulieu.
