Price made 16 saves in a 5-2 win over Ottawa on Saturday night.

EDGE Analysis

Price probably could have slept through this one -- the Sens barely managed to even pound pucks his way at all. He's been delivering solidly this month and is looking more and more like the Price of old. Use him well.

Price will defend the home net from the Senators in Saturday's game, Sean Farrell of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price is 24-9-5 with a 2.32 GAA and .921 save percentage in 40 career appearances against the Senators. The B.C. native hasn't been acting the part of a franchise goalie worthy of a $10.5 million annual salary, though Price has been performing admirably in December based on a 5-1-0 record, 2.43 GAA and .917 save percentage over seven games.

Price allowed four goals on 31 shots in a 6-4 victory over the Hurricanes on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Give Price three straight wins, the longest such streak of the season for the veteran goalie. This was a solid outing from Montreal's No. 1 netminder, who despite winning allowed three or more goals for the 13th time in 24 starts. The win moves his record to 12-8-4 with a 2.94 GAA and .902 save percentage.

Price will guard the home goal Thursday against the Hurricanes.

EDGE Analysis

Price took part in Tuesday's game against the Wild on what was expected to be his night off due to Antti Raanta letting in seven goals during the contest. No matter, Price was perfect in relief and is riding a three-game winning streak into Thursday's contest. He should be a major player from a daily perspective against a Hurricanes club that pelts opposing goalies with a league-high 38.4 shots per game while converting just 2.45 into goals each night.

Price took over for Antti Niemi after Montreal's backup netminder allowed seven goals on 24 shots in a 7-1 loss to Minnesota. Price stopped all nine shots fired his way.

EDGE Analysis

Claude Julien had planned on giving Price the night off, electing to start Niemi for the first time since Nov. 23. Playing behind a disinterested team finishing up a three-game road trip, Niemi was hung out to dry Tuesday night, resulting in Julien turning to his starting netminder midway through in the third, a not-so-subtle message to his young team. Price was perfect in relief but the game was well out of reach by the time he took over crease duties. The 31-year-old's record will not be impacted by Tuesday's result. Expect No. 31 to get the start Thursday against Carolina.

Coach Claude Julien is considering giving Price a break Tuesday against the Wild, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

Julien is mulling over his options, but would like to prevent backup Antti Niemi from getting rusty. Price has started seven straight -- looking like vintage Price during that run -- and there isn't a back-to-back set on the schedule until Dec. 19 and 20.

Price will start in goal Sunday evening against host Chicago, Jean-Francois Chaumont of Le Journal de Montreal reports.

EDGE Analysis

This will be the seventh straight start for Price, who is 10-8-4 with a 2.96 GAA and .900 save percentage over 22 games this season. Those numbers definitely don't scream "elite," but let it be known that Price is about to face a Blackhawks team that has lost six straight games to fall into last place within the Central Division.

Price had a relatively easy night Thursday, only needing to make 19 saves in a 5-2 win over the Senators.

EDGE Analysis

The Canadiens' netminder has now won two straight, both against Ottawa. It was far from a difficult night for Price, though he was forced to make some highlight reel saves early in the game. As time wore on, Ottawa threatened less and less and Montreal ran away with another win in a game that not surprisingly given the cities proximity to one another, featured big crowds for both teams. With the Habs win, Price's record moves to 10-8-4 with a 2.96 GAA and a .900 save percentage, solid numbers for most goalies, however, Price is not paid like most goalies. His owners need to start seeing more of these (wins).

Price will patrol the crease in Thursday's road game against the Senators.

EDGE Analysis

Price was sharp in his last start Tuesday against Ottawa, turning aside 28 of 30 shots en route to a 5-2 home victory. The veteran netminder will hope to perform similarly against the same opponent Thursday, but this time he'll be facing the Senators in their own barn, where they've compiled a 9-4-2 record this season.

Price turned aside 28 of 30 shots Tuesday, earning a 5-2 win over Ottawa.

EDGE Analysis

Price has struggled to keep consistency this year because his team has been a sieve in front of him and there's only so much he can do against an abundance of good shots. That said, this was a strong performance against an offense that's ranked 10th in the league in signing, Price might not be getting wins, but he's established himself as a solid goaltender even when he has little defense ahead of him and should be started in all leagues. Pair him with a a netminder who's playing for a good team so that you can offset those rough nights.
