Price looks to rebound
Montreal will go with Carey Price tonight, just two nights after he was hooked from a 5-1 loss to Pittsburgh. Price is in the midst of a rough stretch — prior to the Pittsburgh game, he gave up four goals in back-to-back game against the Leafs and Sens.
Varlamov does too
Much like Price, Semyon Varlamov will head into Friday’s action looking to make amends for a poor outing.
Varlamov was hooked after allowing three goals on 10 shots in Tuesday’s 5-2 loss to Toronto, snapping his four-game unbeaten streak in the process. The Russian Olympic ‘tender will look to tame the Panthers tonight in Florida, a team that scored four times on him in a 4-1 win back in November.
Varlamov will go up against Tim Thomas in the Florida goal.
