Canadiens coach Michel Therrien confirmed after practice Tuesday in Calgary that goaltender Carey Price will make his third straight start against the Flames on Wednesday (8 p.m., TSN, RDS, TSN Radio 690).
Max Pacioretty, who worked out Monday with a non-contact jersey, was wearing a regular practice sweater Tuesday and was back on his familiar line with David Desharnais and Daniel Briere. Captain Brian Gionta, who didn’t fly to Calgary with his teammates on Monday because of family reasons, was expected to arrive in Calgary Tuesday night and be in the lineup Wednesday.
Wednesday’s game will the the 500th of Rene Bourque’s NHL career. The Canadiens won’t hold a morning skate Wednesday in Calgary before the game.
George Parros continues to make good progress from the concussion he suffered Oct. 1 vs. Toronto. He did not make the trip and no time frame has been given for his return.
Here’s how the lines and defence pairings looked at practice Tuesday:
