Dustin Tokarski to start in goal again for Canadiens in Game 3 of Eastern Conference final

BROSSARD, Que. - Dustin Tokarski will start in goal again for the Montreal Canadiens in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference final.

Coach Michel Therrien confirmed Wednesday that the 24-year-old Tokarski will start Thursday against the Rangers in New York.

Tokarski made his playoff debut Monday in place of Carey Price, who is out for the series. He had 27 saves in Game 2 in just his 11th career NHL appearance, when the Rangers won 3-1 to take a 2-0 lead.

Peter Budaj had replaced Price in the opener.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
