After playing four games in six days last week – all victories – the Canadiens get to enjoy a bit of a break in the schedule.
The team was given the day off Sunday and will return to the ice for a practice at 11 a.m. Monday in Brossard before facing the Los Angeles Kings Tuesday night at the Bell Centre (7 p.m., TSN, RDS, TSN Radio 690). After that, the Habs travel to Philadelphia on Thursday to face the Flyers, will be in Long Island, N.Y., to take on the Islanders Saturday, then return home for a rare Sunday night game against the Florida Panthers with a 6 p.m. start.
Carey Price stopped 23 shots in Saturday’s 3-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres, giving the goalie his seventh consecutive win. During that stretch, Price has allowed only 12 goals, improving his record to 14-8-2 with one shutout, a 1.95 goals-against average and a .938 save percentage. The Canadiens have now played 10 consecutive games without a regulation loss (9-0-1).
