MONTREAL -- The Montreal Canadiens will have goaltender Carey Price back in net for the first time since the return from the Olympic break when they host the Ottawa Senators at Bell Centre on Saturday.
Price has missed eight games with a lower-body injury he aggravated while playing for Canada at the 2014 Sochi Olympics. The last time Price played was the gold-medal game in Sochi when he made 24 saves in a 3-0 win against Sweden, extending his Olympic shutout streak to 164:19.
"Price is playing, it's excellent news," Canadiens coach Michel Therrien said. "He had a good day [Friday] and he felt good [Saturday] morning."
