Canadiens goaltender Carey Price is confirmed in goal tonight vs. the Buffalo Sabres. This after Price left his team’s morning skate in Brossard early, seemingly favouring his right knee.
A whole lot of clinic patients on the ice this morning: Tomas Plekanec, Jeff Halpern, Mathieu Darche and Brett Sopel all skated, all said to be day-to-day. There might be a few game-time decisions this evening, but don’t bet on any of the four being in the lineup.
And defencemen Andrei Markov and Jaroslav Spacek skated a little on their own, first reported by our friends at CKAC Sports. Markov isn’t expected to be back in action this season, having undergone ACL surgery, though Spacek is targeting a return for the playoffs.
