Canadiens put Charles Hudon and Charlie Lindgren on waivers

  Canadiens put Charles Hudon and Charlie Lindgren on waivers The Canadiens moved two steps closer to their final 23-man roster to start the NHL season on Sunday when they placed goalie Charlie Lindgren and forward Charles Hudon on waivers. Other teams have until noon Monday to claim the two players. If they’re not claimed, Lindgren and Hudon will both report to the AHL’s Laval Rocket. The Canadiens are now down to 24 players and have to make one more cut before Tuesday’s 5 p.m. NHL deadline to submit their final roster. They have 14 forwards, eight defencemen and two goalies.

TORONTO — Carey Price wasn’t among the three stars introduced at the conclusion of the Canadiens-Maple Leafs game Saturday, but he should have been.

Price was the reason why the Canadiens escaped with a 6-5 shootout win over the Leafs.

Forget the five goals he surrendered in regulation time, most of which were the result of sloppy play from the guys in front. When the game was on the line — in the overtime and in the shootout — Price was spectacular.

On three occasions in overtime, Price was challenged on breakaways. There was a stop on Mitch Marner and then two saves against John Tavares. The first save on Tavares came as the Leafs captain exited the penalty box and Price was able to make a glove save. The second came with less than 10 seconds to play.

Canadiens' Ben Chiarot willing and ready to protect Carey Price

  Canadiens' Ben Chiarot willing and ready to protect Carey Price Canadiens defenceman Ben Chiarot sent a message Saturday night that goalie Carey Price will be protected this season. During the first period of a 4-3 overtime win over the Ottawa Senators, Price slid across his crease to make a great save on Anthony Duclair before Bobby Ryan skated into the goalie. Chiarot immediately grabbed Ryan and the two players dropped the gloves behind the net for a spirited scrap.

A character comeback, a rare penalty shot , and some vintage goaltending from Carey Price helped the Habs to a thrilling 6-5 shootout win in Toronto on Saturday. TORONTO - Here are a few key storylines from Saturday night's 6-5 shootout win over the Toronto Maple Leafs at Scotiabank Arena.

MONTREAL, Nov. 16, 2011 -- Canadiens goalie Carey Price hustles to pack his bag for his team's charter flight to Long Island, then chats with the media

“I think if he had another half-step, he might have been able to lift it more,” said Price, who stuck out his pad to make the save. “As it was, he got it up a bit.”

Then came the shootout. Paul Byron scored on Montreal’s first shot and Price ensured the victory as stared down a Murderers’ Row of Leafs’ shooters — Auston Matthews, Marner and Tavares.

It appeared the Leafs were on their way to a third consecutive win to start the season when they took a 4-1 lead on a power-play goal by William Nylander at 5:16 of the third period, but Jonathan Drouin scored 11 seconds later to launch the Montreal comeback.

Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren and Charles Hudon both clear NHL waivers

The Canadiens, who had the day off Monday, are down to 24 players and have to make one more cut before Tuesday’s 5 p.m. NHL deadline to submit their final 23-man roster. They have 14 forwards, eight defencemen and two goalies.

“Tonight, we won because everyone did their job. The goal-scorers scored, ( Carey Price ) was While the result may not have been unexpected — the Canadiens have won their last five games against “People were expecting a shootout but we locked them down pretty good and they did the same to us.”

When Max Domi scored an empty-net goal with 49 seconds left to seal the Canadiens’ 3-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings Tuesday night , goaltender Carey Price calmly turned around and took a swig from his water bottle.

“The turning point was that shift after they scored with (Max Domi) and Jo,” Brendan Gallagher said. “They scored right away and we didn’t have time to feel sorry for ourselves. We knew we could get one more, we could come back.”

Gallagher provided that one more when he scored at 6:29 and Jeff Petry tied the game on a rare penalty shot that was called after Kasperi Kapanen threw a broken stick at him.

“I’ve seen guys throw a broken stick at a puck, but it’s first time I saw a guy throw it at a player,” Petry said. “We knew the rule, but there was some confusion. At first, they said any player could take the shot, and then they said any player who was on the ice, and then they said it was me.

“It’s the first time I’ve taken a penalty shot,” said Petry, who beat Michael Hutchinson with a low shot on the glove side. “I shot a few times in shootouts when I was with Edmonton. I went out there and I knew I was going to shoot.”

Canadiens game day: Victor Mete is closing in on unwanted milestone

  Canadiens game day: Victor Mete is closing in on unwanted milestone TORONTO — Canadiens defenseman Victor Mete is closing in on a milestone, but it’s one that he can do without. When Mete lines up against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night (7 p.m., CBC, SN, TVA Sports, TSN-690 Radio) , it will be his 122nd NHL game and he’s still looking for his goal. If he fails to score, he will set a team record for the most games without a goal. Mike Komisarek scored his first NHL goal in his 122nd game. The all-time record for futility by a skater is held by Carolina’s Steve Halko, who played 155 games over six seasons without scoring a goal.

LOS ANGELES — Carey Price doesn’t get excited very often, and he had a predictably low-key response Tuesday after he While Price ’s milestone is impressive, it was also predictable. The focus in the Canadiens locker room after the game was Did the Leafs do enough to win the Stanley Cup?

“I wasn’t surprised that he scored because I’ve seen him shoot in practice,” Gallagher said.

“It wasn’t our best game,” Gallagher admitted. “Pricey had to make some big saves on their best players. We have some things to clean up. There were some things we liked, character-wise, but we have to be sharper. We had a lot of breakdowns and we had to rely on our goaltender a little too much. Obviously, he’s capable of doing that, but we don’t want to rely on him every night.

“This was a big win for us,” Gallagher said. “I remember coming in here (last season) and they came back after we had a 3-0 lead, so it was good to get them back.”

The Canadiens flew home after the game, but they’ll return to this area on Wednesday when they complete their season-opening road foray with a game against the Buffalo Sabres. The Canadiens will play their home opener Thursday against the Detroit Red Wings.

There’s not much we can do physically, but we’ll be looking at video and see where we can be sharper mentally.” The Canadiens were scheduled to practise in Brossard Friday, but they will skip the on-ice session in favour of a team meeting and videos.
