Amazing news for the Montreal Canadiens tonight, as it has been confirmed that Carey Price is back from injury. Not only is he back, but he's starting against the New York Islanders on Friday night.

Naturally, Dustin Tokarski was sent back down to the St. John's IceCaps. He did get some relief action in the game against the Colorado Avalanche, but didn't get any starts, as Mike Condon was manning the crease.
Condon put forth a valiant effort in Price's stead, but had a few weak games following a stretch where he did a fantastic job emulating Carey Price. Regardless of how good or bad Condon was, there is simply no understating the importance of having Carey Price back in net.
