02/07/2012 22:34 Canadiens top Penguins in shootout
Tomas Plekanec scored on Montreal's eighth attempt in the shootout to lead the Canadiens to a 3-2 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night.
02/05/2012 16:46 Canadiens, top-star Price blank Jets
Carey Price made 23 saves for his third shutout of the season, Tomas Plekanec had a goal and an assist and the Montreal Canadiens ended a three-game losing streak with a 3-0 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday.
Desjardins inked a one-year, two way deal with Montreal this past July and could battle Petr Budaj for the role of Carey Price's backup this coming season. He played last season in the Colorado organization, posting a 16-11-5 record with a 2.11 goals-against average with Lake Erie (AHL). He last played in the NHL in the 2010-11 season, winning both of his starts with Tampa Bay. Monitor the training camp battle between Desjardins and Budaj, although neither netminder will have terribly much value if Price remains healthy. (Updated 8/14/12)
