Canadiens Weekly – Price is Back, But the Woes Continue

Hello, once again Ladies and Gentleman! The Montreal Canadiens had a four game slate over the week, and despite the season debut of G Carey Price late in the week, the Canadiens would go winless on the week.

With that being said, let’s dive into the recaps of the games over the past week.

In the third period, Montreal ties the game when Josh Anderson scores his 18th of the year but then Evgeni Svechnikov nets his seventh to give the Jets the 3-2 lead.
