Canadiens confirm Price’s return as Condon cools


File this under “conveniently timed news.”

Right as Montreal Canadiens fans might have been feeling a twinge of panic with Mike Condon slipping (the Arizona Coyotes completed a 3-2 upset on Thursday), the team made it official: Carey Price is back.

Again, things were getting a little antsy.

Price will get thrown right in the deep end to start. The New York Islanders are a formidable scoring threat, and Montreal will be closing off a back-to-back set.

Not that the Habs are complaining. They held the fort with Price out, and now they just hope that he can get back in the mix without too much trouble.
