Price starts for Canadiens, Myers back for Sabres

by Staff

The Montreal Canadiens didn't get much time to pat themselves on the back after ending the Boston Bruins' 12-game win streak with a 2-1 shootout win Monday.

The Canadiens had to travel home from Boston and are right back at it Tuesday when they host the Buffalo Sabres. They likely will have some lineup juggling to do as well.

Fourth-line forwards Dale Weise and Travis Moen were lost to injury in the first period Monday. Weise was hurt on a first-period hit by Bruins defenseman Kevan Miller and Moen was hurt during a subsequent fight with Miller. Neither returned to the game.

Forward Lars Eller, scratched Monday, could find his way back into lineup, as could forwards George Parros and Ryan White.

The Canadiens didn't skate Tuesday, so their lineup won't be known until game-time. What is known is that goalie Carey Price will start after veteran backup Peter Budaj led the winning effort against the Bruins.

For the Sabres, defenseman Tyler Myers will return to the lineup after missing the past five games due to an arm injury. Coach Ted Nolan wasn't concerned about limiting Myers' minutes after the time off.

"Stallions, just let them run," Nolan said. "You're not going to hold him back."

Ville Leino will return from being a healthy scratch to play on the fourth line with Zenon Konopka bothered by a back injury.

Marcus Foligno - Tyler Ennis - Drew Stafford
