Goalie nods: Price returns from injury to face Preds

All the latest from the blue paint…

Carey’s back for Habs

After missing Saturday’s win over the Islanders with an upper-body injury, Carey Price will return to the Montreal net tonight when the Habs host the Preds at the Bell Centre.

Price, who’s having a Vezina- and Hart Trophy-caliber season, is 23-10-2 on the year with a .927 save percentage and 2.19 GAA. He’s headed to his fourth All-Star Game in Columbus on the weekend and is easily the biggest reason why Montreal comes into tonight’s game sitting third in the Atlantic Division, just three points back of Tampa Bay for top spot.

For the Preds, Carter Hutton will be in goal.
