After a week of absence, the goalkeeper Carey Price was back on the ice about five minutes before the start of the training session.


After a few gestures of stretching, it is installed in front of one of the two nets, and has received shots of the instructor of the guardians, Stéphane Waite. His teammates in turn joined, including Charlie Lindgren and Antti Niemi.


Price has shared one of the two threads with Niemi, took part in exercises and was called to stop the shots of his teammates. He seemed comfortable in his lateral movement.


He has not met with reporters, but he brings his team-mates for the tour of two games in two nights in Dallas, Tuesday, and Nashville the next day.


Head coach, Claude Julien, has not wanted to venture out on the opportunities that it participates in the duel on Wednesday in Nashville. It is simply to confirm that Lindgren will play against the Stars.


“As they say, one step at a time. It is encouraging that he has trained with us. We have no scenario. We can’t confirm. We don’t want to go forward, it is in the day-to-day, ” decided Julian on the subject of Price.


Price had also hinted last week at the performance of Lindgren, which enabled him, had he noted to give himself a little more time to recover.

However, Lindgren has just granted five goals in each of his last two outings and has even been replaced by Niemi midway in the third period of the fight on Saturday against the Toronto Maple Leafs while the score was 5-0.


In this regard, Julien has made it clear that Lindgren had nothing to apologize for.


“With such a score, I thought it was an opportunity for Niemi to play and to have an idea of what it can bring us if we ever need to make use of his services. It has nothing to do with Lindgren. He has played well until now, it has made several important stops and on the goals that he conceded in the end, we gave up. “


Play with patience


Players from Canada have taken on the leadership of Dallas in the early afternoon, Monday, where they will meet Alexander Radulov.


Radulov knows a strong start to the season with 19 points, including seven goals. It is six points ahead of Jonathan Drouin, Brendan Gallagher and Shea Weber, comeneurs for the Habs in this chapter.


The next day, Nasvhille, it will be the turn of the defenders P. K. Subban and Alexei Emelin to reconnect with the Habs.


The Canadian will want to forget the end in the fish tail of his stay of six home games that he completed with a harvest of five points out of a possible 12. With 18 points in 21 games, he ranks 14th in the Association Is and he needs to start accumulating wins.


Saturday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Canadian has been the victim of two goals in 37 seconds in the middle of the second period, and he had never given way to a thawed 6-0.


“We have to keep our concentration, not to panic and continue to play our way”, explained the head coach of the Habs.


“Against Toronto, we played a very good game in the first half and it changed as soon as the Maple Leafs have scored a goal, and even more after the second. We have felt the urgency of having to score right away and in that time, we change our style of play, guys cheat here and there and it makes us more harm than good. “
