Canadiens' Carey Price: Starting in net Friday

Price will guard the goal for Friday night's matchup in San Jose, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Price's spectacular season continues, as he's now made at least 31 saves in four of his last five starts. Even more interesting is the fact that all of those five games have been decided by one goal, meaning that Price has essentially been standing on his head to keep the Habs in it when they can't provide they're usually reliable offensive support. The 29-year-old will face a Sharks squad Friday that averages 2.42 goals per game.
