Head coach Claude Julien announced that Carey Price will be traveling with the team for its upcoming two-game road trip.
Today was the first day in almost three weeks that Price participated in his first full practice. With Price’s usual backup, Al Montoya, out with a concussion, rookie goalie Charlie Lindgren has been in nets for the Canadiens during Price’s absence.
Lindgren is still pegged as the starter for Tuesday night against the Stars, but Price could possibly be in nets for the Habs as of Wednesday against Nashville.
Perhaps having Price back in nets is exactly what the Habs need to get out of this slump.
