For the first time since last year’s playoffs, Carey Price will be playing in consecutive games for the Montreal Canadiens. He’s probably going to get another rest when the team travels to Ottawa on Saturday, but for now it has to feel like he’s getting back in a groove after nearly a full season away.

He’s aiming to become the third Habs goaltender to record a win versus the Philadelphia Flyers this year, which would make them the only opponent the Canadiens have beaten three times this year. The first two games both went to overtime, so don’t be surprised if this one requires more than 60 minutes as well.

Both teams have taken the opportunity provided by being well outside of the playoff picture to test out some of their prospects, and tonight we get a glimpse of Rafaël Harvey-Pinard, who arrives in the NHL after an incredible offensive run with the Laval Rocket. Perhaps he will be the one who makes the difference to stop Montreal’s losing streak at six games.
