Price is unavailable for Saturday's home game against the Penguins due to an illness.

EDGE Analysis

The Canadiens have recalled Charlie Lindgren from AHL Laval under emergency conditions. Antti Niemi will likely patrol the crease for the Habs in the upcoming contest, but it's always best to wait for official confirmation on such matters before locking in fantasy lineups.

Price allowed three goals in Thursday's 3-0 loss to the Kings.

EDGE Analysis

The Canadiens laid a proverbial egg in their home opener. Price should have done better on the first goal but had little hope on the other two that beat him. Montreal's netminder is a must-start in all formats but there will certainly be nights where his team provides little-to-no goal support, resulting in Price being credited with more losses than his play may justify.

Price will start in goal as the Habs play host to the Kings on Thursday evening, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price hasn't had a lot of trouble fending off the Kings, as he's 6-2-0 against them in his career, but his ratios (2.67 GAA and .913 save percentage) against the royal club could be better. If you're like us and not entirely sold on Price in this matchup, then we suggest combing over the busy 12-game slate for alternatives. For instance, Frederik Andersen of the Maple Leafs assuredly will be a chalky play, but he's going against the Red Wings, and that team is depending on three rookie blueliners to help get the job done.

Price stopped 21-of-22 pucks in Saturday's 5-1 win over Pittsburgh.

EDGE Analysis

Price was phenomenal between the pipes Saturday, repeatedly making the second save and stopping tough shots in traffic. The former Hart Trophy winning goaltender looked every bit like his old self on the road in Pittsburgh, and will look to keep the good times rolling against the Kings on Thursday.

Price will guard the net Saturday night against the Penguins, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price played well in Wednesday's season-opening loss to the Maple Leafs, which is encouraging after a down 2017-18 campaign. There are no back-to-backs on Montreal's schedule until the first full week of November, so Price could be a busy guy early on.

Price will guard the goal in Wednesday's road matchup with the Maple Leafs, Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price wasn't great during preseason action, posting a 1-2-0 record while registering a sub-par 3.77 GAA and .862 save percentage in four appearances. The veteran netminder will look to start the regular season off on the right foot by picking up a road win in a tough matchup with a high-flying Maple Leafs offense led by the dangerous duo of John Tavares and Auston Matthews.

Price made 18 saves on 21 shots in two periods of work Saturday night in a 3-0 loss to the Senators.

EDGE Analysis

Price needs to rebound to the lofty heights of 2014-15 (44-16-6, 1.96 GAA and .933 save percentage) and 2016-17 (37-20-5, 2.23, .923) to prove he really is the best goalie in hockey. And deserving of his massive salary. Price is a high-risk, massive-upside twinetender, so you will need to have a strong gut to make him your top dog. Especially with such a thin supporting cast on this year's Habs.

Price is expected to start versus the Senators in Ottawa on Saturday, according to Chantal Machabee of RDS.

EDGE Analysis

Price is 1-1-0 with a 3.58 GAA and .864 save percentage through three preseason games. If those ratios look shaky, well, it's because they are. While the preseason is all about ironing out the kinks, there's more scrutiny on Price after he labored through his worst season in the NHL last year, going 16-26-7 with a 3.11 GAA and .900 save percentage.

Price will get the starting nod in Wednesday's preseason clash with Toronto, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price was limited to just 49 games last season, but should be back over the 60-game mark if he can stay healthy this year -- although having a capable backup in Antti Niemi behind him could give the coaching staff the option of limiting Price's appearances.

Price stopped 16 of 18 shots and played the entire game Saturday in a preseason win over Ottawa.

EDGE Analysis

The Canadiens had what looked like an opening night defense in front of Price, which helped limit the number of shots the goalie faced. Ideally, a Price in top form would have a better save percentage than .889, but it's the preseason, so let's not get too carried away yet.
