Habs' Budaj Gets Start Wednesday
Budaj will start between the pipes Wednesday against the Bruin, John Lu of TSN reports.Budaj has been saddled with three straight losses, and was yanked in his last outing after giving up two goals on 11 shots to the Sharks. He'll continue to get the majority of the starts for the Canadiens until Carey Price (lower body) returns, which could be fairly soon considering that Price was a full participant in Wednesday's morning skate.

Budaj Yanked In Habs' Loss
Budaj was pulled from the crease early in the second period after allowing two goals in the first 11 shots he faced Saturday against San Jose.Two tallies in just over 20 minutes isn't a mortal sin, but the first of those was uber-soft, resulting from Budaj's mishandling a puck during a Montreal power play. Whenever Carey Price can return, Budaj will get a one-way ticket to the end of the bench.
Niemi, Sharks blank Canadiens
Tommy Wingels scored two goals and Antti Niemi shut Montreal out for the second time this season in the San Jose Sharks 4-0 victory over the Canadiens on Saturday night.
Niemi, Sharks beat Canadiens 4-0
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) When Tommy Wingels scored a fluky, short-handed goal in the opening minutes, it was clear this was going to be San Jose's night.
|Peter Budaj was the Canadiens' backup goalie in 2012-13 and finished the season with a 2.29 goals-against average and .908 save percentage. It's been a good two-year run in Montreal for Budaj, who earned a two-year extension to be with the team through the 2014-15 season. Neither he nor the team holds high expectations. He needs to give Montreal quality back-up play which would allow head coach Michel Therrien to rest Carey Price 25 times. (Updated 8/12/13) |
