Carey Price will start in goal when the Canadiens play the Sabres tomorrow night.
Jaroslav Halak did not accompany the team to Buffalo. The hot goaltender riding a four-game win streak will rejoin his teammates in Atlanta later this week..
The Hamilton Bulldogs play tonight. One of their goaltenders – either Marc Denis or Cedric Desjardins – will travel to Buffalo tomorrow to back up Price.
Alex Tanguay is closer to returning but won’t play in Buffalo. His separated shoulder is still not 100 per cent but Carbonneau said he could be ready to play Friday in Atlanta or Sunday in Dallas.
