MTL (3-0-1) @ BOS (3-1-0)

After two convincing wins on home ice, the Canadiens will try to wrap up their week in style on Saturday night in Boston.

On Thursday night, Carey Price returned to active duty and backstopped the Canadiens to a 5-2 win over the Arizona Coyotes. Price made 27 saves in his first start since November 25, 2015.

Michel Therrien's troops led the Coyotes 4-0 by the time the game was a period-and-a-half old on goals from Alexei Emelin, Torrey Mitchell, Shea Weber and Alex Galchenyuk.

For his part, Weber also picked up an assist on the Canadiens' fifth goal of the night by Artturi Lehkonen, and went on to earn first-star honors.

On defense, Greg Pateryn draws back into the lineup in place of Mikhail Sergachev.

The Bruins, meanwhile, have also enjoyed a strong start to the season, having won three of their first four games.

Patrice Bergeron scored the game-winner with 1:15 remaining in regulation time in a 2-1 win over the New Jersey Devils on Thursday night. It marked Bergeron's first outing of the year after missing the first three contests due to injury.

Last season, the Canadiens won three of their five meetings against the Bruins.
