Habs' Offense Leads Tokarski To Victory

News: Dustin Tokarski rode the coattails of his offense to victory Saturday against the Islanders, as he was beaten four times on 31 shot attempts.
Analysis: Dustin Tokarski has made the last two starts for the Canadiens in place of the ailing Carey Price, looking uninspiring on both occasions. He still retains relatively respectable ratios over his 10 appearances this season (2.50 GAA, .917 save percentage), which should make him a serviceable enough stopgap solution until Price returns to action. Price could be back as early as Tuesday's game against the Predators, though it seems more likely the Habs would just let their prized netminder rest through the All-Star break.

Canadiens' Tokarski To Start For Ailing Price

News: Tokarksi will receive the start in goal Saturday against the Islanders, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Analysis: Regular netminder Carey Price is nursing an upper-body injury and will be unavailable Saturday, allowing Dustin Tokarski to pick up his first back-to-back starts of the season. The 25-year-old has produced a respectable 4-3-1 record, 2.33 GAA and .922 save percentage over nine appearances this season, but it doesn't look like he'll be in line for much more additional duty beyond Saturday. Coach Michel Therrien noted after the Canadiens' morning skate that Price's injury is not a major concern, and that he could be available as soon as Tuesday's game against the Predators.

Canadiens' Tokarski Likely To Start Saturday

News: Dustin Tokarski is likely to start Saturday against the Islanders, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: With Carey Price nursing an upper-body injury sustained Wednesday night in Columbus, Dustin Tokarski is in line for a second straight start. The Habs recalled Joey MacDonald from AHL Hamilton, which further suggests Price will be a no-go.

Habs' Tokarski Solid In Loss

News: Dustin Tokarski made 31 saves Thursday, but gave up three goals to end up with a loss in Ottawa.
Analysis: Making his first start since the calendar flipped to 2015, Dustin Tokarski was effective, but was easily outdueled by the Sens' Craig Anderson. He remains one of the stronger backups around, but Tokarski's opportunities are quite limited thanks to playing behind that Carey Price fellow.

Habs' Tokarski Earns Rare Start

News: Dustin Tokarski will draw the start in net Thursday against the Senators.
Analysis: It's just the ninth appearance of the season for the netminder, who has unsurprisingly played second fiddle to the stellar Carey Price this season. Dustin Tokarski has been quite good in his own right when called upon (4-2-1 record, 2.23 GAA, .924 save percentage), so those in leagues with daily roster moves looking for help in stabilizing ratios might want to pick up the goalie for Thursday's slate.

Tokarski, Habs Edge Panthers In Shootout

News: Dustin Tokarski turned in a dominant spot start Tuesday, making 36 saves and outdueling Panthers netminder Roberto Luongo in a 2-1 shootout victory.
Analysis: Despite the fact that he was making his first NHL start since Nov. 29 -- though he at least was sent down for a couple AHL starts in between -- Dustin Tokarski looked impressively sharp, reminiscent of his performance in last year's playoffs after Carey Price went down. However, he's been a bit inconsistent in his limited action, having allowed a total of four goals in his four wins, but 13 goals in his other four appearances (three starts).

Habs' Tokarski Gets Tuesday Start

News: Dustin Tokarski will be in the crease Tuesday versus the Panthers.
Analysis: With Carey Price making the turn Monday night versus the Hurricanes, Dustin Tokarski will be called upon to spell him for the second game of a back-to-back set. Tokarski hasn't logged an appearance for the Habs since Nov. 29, even heading out on an assignment to AHL Hamilton since that time in an attempt to pick up work. Tuesday's outing against a low-scoring Florida attack will present a good landing spot for Tokarski, but Price's track record of sound play won't create many future opportunities for it.

Habs Recall Tokarski From Minors

News: Dustin Tokarski was recalled from AHL Hamilton on Monday, TSN reports.
Analysis: Dustin Tokarski had just been assigned to Hamilton over the past weekend in an effort to see more ice time. Now that he's back with the Canadiens, he'll reprise his usual role as the lightly-used backup behind Carey Price.

Habs' Tokarski Backstops Hamilton Win

News: Dustin Tokarski stopped 29 of 31 shots in AHL Hamilton's win over Texas on Sunday.
Analysis: Sunday's game was the second start of the weekend for Dustin Tokarski, who was sent down to get some work in after a long stretch of inactivity with the parent club. He's expected to be recalled to Montreal in time for some back-to-backs over the holidays.

Canadiens' Tokarski Makes AHL Start

News: Dustin Tokarski made 28 saves in a start for AHL Hamilton on Friday, but was on the losing end of a 4-2 game against St. John's.
Analysis: Dustin Tokarski, who will start Sunday afternoon against Texas, has gotten little action of late with Montreal, so he was sent down to Hamilton to get a couple of weekend starts. He's fully expected to be recalled following the holidays when the Habs have a few back-to-backs on the schedule.

Dustin Tokarski

Habs Reassign Tokarski

News: Dustin Tokarski was reassigned to AHL Hamilton on Friday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Analysis: Due to his lack of recent activity behind No. 1 goalie Carey Price, Dustin Tokarski will be sent to Hamilton for the weekend in order to pick up two starts. Look for Montreal to call up another goalie from the AHL in a corresponding move to serve as Price's backup for their game Saturday against the Senators.

Habs' Tokarski: 23 Saves In Shootout Loss

News: Dustin Tokarski made 23 saves in a 4-3 shootout loss to the Sabres on Saturday night.
Analysis: Not a great night for the otherwise reliable and highly competitive 'tender. At least he pushed the shootout to five rounds and allowed just one goal. He's been very solid earlier in the season, but has now put together two losses with eight goals allowed in those two games. In comparison, he'd allowed just eight goals in five games before that. Keep him stapled to your bench until you see him reduce those goals allowed.

Habs' Tokarski Starting Saturday

News: Dustin Tokarski will start in goal Saturday against the Sabres, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: The Habs will indeed turn to Dustin Tokarski, as expected, to mind the net in the second of back-to-back games. Tokarski allowed five goals on 34 shots in a loss to the Rangers last Sunday, but he's played well overall, with a 2.37 GAA and .919 save percentage in his six appearances (five starts).

Habs' Tokarski Lit Up In Loss

News: Dustin Tokarski recorded 29 saves, but allowed five goals in Sunday's 5-0 loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: It was by far the worst start of the season for Dustin Tokarski, as he had a 1.79 GAA coming into Sunday's game. He's now 3-2-0 on the season, and other than his most recent outing, he's established himself as a reliable backup. He won't get too many starts behind Carey Price though, which hurts his fantasy value.

Habs' Tokarski To Make Next Start Sunday

News: Dustin Tokarski will be in the net Sunday against the Rangers.
Analysis: With Carey Price getting the nod for the first game of the Habs' weekend back-to-back Saturday versus the Bruins, Dustin Tokarski will enter the crease Sunday for his third start of November. The 25-year-old has been stellar in spot duty this season, posting a 3-1-0 record and .937 save percentage over five outings.

Habs' Tokarski Solid In Win

News: Dustin Tokarski stopped 28 of the 29 shots he faced on Sunday en route to a 4-1 win over the Red Wings.
Analysis: It was another strong performance for Dustin Tokarski to run his record to 3-1-0. He hasn't allowed more than two goals in any of his four starts, though he did allow three in a relief appearance, but with Carey Price holding down the starting job, Tokarski likely won't get too many opportunities between the pipes.

Canadiens' Tokarski Will Be In Net Sunday

News: Dustin Tokarski will start in net Sunday against the Red Wings, Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette Background reports.
Analysis: Dustin Tokarski will be getting his fifth chance in the net this season after Carey Price started Saturday night. During his last time on the ice, Tokarski stopped 31 of 32 shots against the Sabres on Nov. 6.

Habs' Tokarski Expected To Start Sunday

News: Dustin Tokarski is expected to start in net Sunday against the Red Wings, Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette Background reports.
Analysis: Dustin Tokarski has been a solid replacement for Carey Price on his days off, posting a 2-1-0 record with a .929 save percentage and a 2.01 GAA. He will likely get another opportunity in net Sunday, only his fifth chance this season.

Canadiens' Tokarsi Wins In Shootout

News: Dustin Tokarski stopped 31 of 32 shots faced in Wednesday night's 2-1 shootout win over the Sabres.
Analysis: In his three starts, Dustin Tokarski has allowed four goals on 80 shot attempts, giving him a .950 save percentage.

Habs Tab Tokarski For Wednesday Start

News: Dustin Tokarski will be between the pipes Wednesday against the Sabres, Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: The Canadiens will turn the net over to Dustin Tokarski after regular starter Carey Price was on the wrong end of Tuesday's shutout loss to the Blackhawks. The Sabres showed signs of life over the weekend in knocking off the Red Wings, but with a league-low 1.08 goals and 20.9 shots per game, Buffalo still represents a cushy matchup for Tokarski.

Habs' Tokarski Lackluster In Loss Monday

News: Dustin Tokarski managed to stop just 16 of 18 shots in a loss to the Oilers on Monday.
Analysis: Dustin Tokarski has now allowed five goals on 36 shots in his last two appearances and hasn't been able to provide quality relief for workhorse starter Carey Price yet this season. Seeing as though he starts very few games and hasn't performed well to date, we'd avoid Tokarski as a spot start in most leagues until he improves his play.

Habs' Tokarski Starting Monday

News: Dustin Tokarski will start between the pipes against the Oilers on Monday, Jack Michaels of the Oilers radio broadcast reports.
Analysis: Dustin Tokarski will take the front end of the team's back-to-back games to start the week, with Carey Price likely to start Tuesday against the Flames. Tokarski has won his only start this season, making 29 saves on 30 shots against the Capitals.

Habs' Tokarski Mediocre In Relief Monday

News: Dustin Tokarski turned aside just 15-of-18 shots in one period of relief of Carey Price in Monday's 7-1 loss to the Lightning.
Analysis: Price was yanked in favour of Dustin Tokarski at the second intermission after allowing four goals, three of which came courtesy of Bolts superstar Steven Stamkos -- who picked up his eighth career hat trick. Despite this being a rough night all around for the Habs, it was disappointing to see Tokarski fare so poorly in his second appearance of the season after he turned in a 29-save, one-goal gem against the Capitals. With that in mind, he's unlikely to get another starting nod until Price needs a rest when the Habs play on back-to-back nights.

Canadiens' Tokarski Saves Canadiens' Bacon

News: Dustin Tokarski stopped 29 of 30 shots to pick up the win in Thursday night's 2-1 shootout victory over Washington.
Analysis: The Capitals buzzed Dustin Tokarski early and often, scoring a first-period goal and out-shooting the visitors, 15-2, at the first intermission. He kept Montreal in the game until Tomas Plekanec provided the third-period equalizer. Small sample size aside, general manager Marc Bergevin was made to look like a genius when he traded Peter Budaj in order to keep Tokarski with the big club.

Habs To Start Tokarski On Thursday

News: Dustin Tokarski will get the starting nod for Thursday's game against the Capitals, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Rather than using Carey Price on back-to-back nights right out of the gate, coach Michel Therrien will give his No. 1 netminder an early-season breather. The starts Dustin Tokarski receives this season will likely be limited primarily to these types of back-to-back scenarios, as Price is expected to shoulder one of the heaviest workloads in the league. While Tokarski could enjoy some usefulness in daily formats when he's announced as the starter on a given night, he's unlikely to provide as much value in shallower season-long leagues.
