Carey Price will be back in goal for the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night.

Price has been out of commission for the Habs with a lower-body injury since returning from the 2014 Sochi Olympics. After leading Canada to a gold medal, Price returned home unable to suit up for the Canadiens.

The last time Price donned the bleu, blanc, et rouge was Feb. 8 against Carolina. His return comes at the perfect time for Montreal as they’re 3-4-1 since returning from the Olympics.

The Canadiens are currently tied with Tampa Bay for third in the Atlantic Division and hold down the first wild card spot in the Eastern Conference. If Price returns to his .925 save percentage form, the Habs will be hard to handle the rest of the way.

    Gonna be hard without Gorges. Hopefully they fill his spot in with more of the prospects, NOT BOUILLON OR MURRAY. Have high hopes for the newly returned EGG line, the Patches, DD and Vanek line and Briere performing, cause he only does on the plekanec line! GO HABS GO

    I think he might have a rough night adjusting to the D in front of him.
