Who Starts In Goal For Montreal?

from Chris Johnston of Sportsnet, All indications at Monday’s morning skate suggested that backup Peter Budaj would get the start in Game 2 against the New York Rangers.

Canadiens defenseman scores on his own net

Montreal Canadiens defenseman Francis Bouillion cranked a nice one-timer to put the Florida Panthers on the board Sunday, ending teammate Peter Budaj’s shutout.  There’s absolutely no reason Budaj should have been expecting Bouillion to shoot the puck on net, but that’s just what he did. Bouillion had just scored his first goal of the season (for his own team) in the second...

Habs goalie assists on easiest goal ever

Montreal Canadiens goaltender Peter Budaj must have been in a giving mood Wednesday as he donated to Vinny Lecavalier’s goal scoring fund. Lecavalier misplayed a pass from a teammate along the right wing and the puck slid into the Canadiens’ zone. Budaj skated out to the left face-off circle to play it and play it he did. He served the puck up on a silver platter like a waitress...
