The Montreal Canadiens are looking to turn around their season in Thursday night’s matchup against the Boston Bruins at TD Garden, but they aren’t starting their No. 1 goaltender, Carey Price.
Instead, the Canadiens will start veteran backup Peter Budaj, who has five career starts against the Bruins. Price has been struggling of late with a 2-5 record in his last seven games, but an important rivalry matchup against Boston is the type of game you’d expect a goalie of his caliber to start.
Boston will counter with Tuukka Rask in net.
