Carey Price Starts at Buffalo, Kyle Chipchura Demoted, Alex Tanguay Out


Carey Price will get the start Wednesday night when the Montreal Canadiens visit the Buffalo Sabres.

Price, who has struggled since the All-Star break, has been sitting on the bench lately while Jaroslav Halak has been shining for the Canadiens.

Halak however is ailing the flu and has missed the Canadiens’ last two practices.

Halak was the winner of the Canadiens’ Molson Cup February Segment, going 5-2 with a 2.90 GAA and a .931 SvPct with one shutout. He is currently on a four-game winning streak.

Forward Alex Tanguay has been practising with the team, but was not cleared by team doctors to play tomorrow. He is expected to be available either Friday or Sunday.

Captain Saku Koivu was not at practice today, likely taking a therapy day.

Center Kyle Chipchura was sent down to the Canadiens’ AHL affiliate Hamilton Bulldogs before the Canadiens set out to Buffalo this afternoon.
