Carey Price, who hasn’t won a game in nearly a month, will get the start tonight when the Canadiens play the Carolina Hurricanes at 7 p.m. at the Bell Centre. Price lost 3-2 in a shootout in Buffalo in his last start last Wednesday. He has two losses and no decision since he was the winner on March 2 when the Canadiens beat Washington 6-5 in overtime.
Price will face Cam Ward in the Carolina net. Ward returned to action Monday vs. Atlanta after having missed 18 games with a bad back. He brings a lifetime record of 9-3-2 against the Canadiens.
Ben Maxwell and Tom Pyatt will be the healthy Montreal scratches tonight.
