Carey Price could jump-start his season, he who knows the worst start of the season of his career with a record of 3-7-1.

In general, laconic in his exchanges with reporters, Carey Price has been the same, Friday noon. The goalkeeper of the Montreal canadiens was expressed, however, with a smile on his lips, knowing that he was going to put the collar back on after an absence of some three weeks.

 

At the end of a training session, during which he was kept busy, Price was confirmed, using a ” yes ” to everything simple but well-felt, it will protect the net on the Habs against the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday at the Bell Centre.

 

It will be his first release since the 2nd of November in Minnesota. Against the Wild, he had conceded five goals in a defeat of 6-3.

 

A few days ago, Price said the injury during training prior to this match. Friday, he came back on his decision to play anyway.

 

“It happened at the end of the warm-up, and I didn’t want to put “Monty” [Al Montoya] in a difficult situation. I thought I felt well enough. This was probably not the best idea. “

 

A matter of time

 

After sessions alone, and then a one week break, Price has resumed training Monday. He accompanied his teammates in Dallas and Nashville, without, however, put on the uniform, except for slight morning sessions of training.

 

It was, however, noticed a difference in his gestures and movements, and, by presenting themselves at the Bell sports Complex on Friday, Price had the feeling that time had done its work.

 

“It was to find my timing and my rhythm. I had the impression that it would go well today. I especially need to participate in a full workout, I can ensure that I felt good and have the feeling that the level of my game is where it needs to go back to my place. “

 

This forced break of three weeks could allow Price to revive his season, he who knows the worst start of the season of his career with a record of 3-7-1, an average goals allowed of 3.77 and an outage rate of ,877.

 

“While he was injured, Carey has not stopped working,” said Claude Julien. He has had treatments, he made the video with Stephane [Waite]. Tomorrow [Saturday], he will have the chance to get back in front of the net, and we have all the confidence in the world in Carey. We know what he has done in the past. Any player, without exception in our job, has its ups and downs. In the case of Carey, it has not yet played its best hockey, but we are excited to see him back in form. “

 

The team has also disposed of its club-school of Laval defender David Schlemko and goalie Charlie Lindgren.

 

Weber and Gallagher absent

 

In addition, the defender Shea Weber and forward Brendan Gallagher have not taken part in the training session. The Canadian has reported that the two players are subjected to treatment.

 

Weber has missed the last two games of the team due to a lower-body injury. He had also missed the meeting of November 9, against the Wild because of a lower-body injury, which is different from the one that is being held in the gap, said Weber earlier this week.

 

The case of Weber remained uncertain in anticipation of Saturday, while Julien confirmed that Gallagher will be at his post.

The team has also disposed of its club-school of Laval defender David Schlemko and goalie Charlie Lindgren. In the case of Schlemko, who will be in uniform for the match in the evening of the Rocket, this is mainly to allow him to get back in shape.

 

However, it is unlikely that Schlemko could put on the uniform of the Tricolor for the first time on Saturday, said Claude Julien.

 

As for Lindgren, it is very well managed despite a record overall 3-4-1 for the absence of Price. In eight meetings, the young goalie of the Minnesota presents an average of 2.43, and an outage rate of ,924.

 

Sent into the fray against Nashville on Wednesday, Antti Niemi has also done well by pushing away 31 pucks in the back of 3-2 in a shootout.

 

Julien explained that it was no longer safe to return to Lindgren with the Rocket and allow him to play to keep him in Montreal, to expose Niemi to tie and risk losing the veteran finn.

 

“If we lose Niemi and that one of our guards gets injured, we would be in the same situation as before the arrival of Niemi. “

 

Weber and Gallagher absent

 

In addition, the defender Shea Weber and forward Brendan Gallagher have not taken part in the training session.

 

The Canadian has made it known that the two pillars of the team are subjected to treatment.

 

Weber has missed the last two games of the team due to a lower-body injury. He had also missed the meeting of November 9, against the Wild because of a lower-body injury, which is different from the one that is being held in the gap, said Weber earlier this week.

 

The case of Weber remained uncertain in anticipation of Saturday, while Julien confirmed that Gallagher will be at his post.

 

In another order of ideas, the head coach of the Habs has redesigned its triple-play, and Max Pacioretty has been moved to the left of center Phillip Danault, with which he seems to know the most successful, and Andrew Shaw. As for Alex Galchenyuk and Jonathan Drouin, they have skated alongside Paul Byron.

 

“We have had success in the past, we have a certain chemistry, observed Shaw, speaking of his playing with Pacioretty. I’m going to jump on the rink, work, hit the net, create space and try playing with confidence defensively. “

 

The other two trios have not been modified.

 

Finally, Julien explained that the trade of Torrey Mitchell to the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday, helped the Canadian to respect the limit of 23 players without the risk of losing one of the young players of the team.

 

“In our case we, the young people that we currently have are going in the right direction and we want to continue to give them a chance to develop. “
