Injuries
Lower Body - Day-to-Day (Updated - 3/28/17)
News
Montoya sustained a lower-body injury practice Tuesday, so he'll give way to Carey Price for the evening's start versus the visiting Stars, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

At this point, it's not clear who will be backing up Price, but either way, it's a bit of a letdown for daily leaguers who had been hoping to stream Montoya against a Dallas team ranked 24th in the league in road scoring at 2.32 goals per game. The first-year Hab will be reevaluated ahead of Thursday's contest against the Panthers, his former club.

News
Price will be between the pipes for Thursday's matchup with the Panthers.

Despite winning 10 of his last 12 appearances, it seems unlikely that Price will get to 40-wins this season -- currently sitting at 35 -- with just six games remaining on the regular season calendar. Milestones aside, it has been a solid return to the ice for the netminder after losing nearly the entire 2015-16 campaign due to injury. The 29-year-old remains one of the elite tenders in the league in nearly all fantasy formats. The Panthers have dropped four of their previous six outings, but also registered a 7-0 victory over the Blackhawks during that stretch, which makes it hard to know the compete level Price will face.

News
Radulov scored the final goal in Montreal's 4-1 win over Dallas on Tuesday.

This was Radulov's first goal since Feb. 27 in New Jersey. Points have been hard to come by since that four-point night against the Devils; Radulov had just two assists over nine games entering Tuesday. Coach Claude Julien has reunited the trio of Radulov and Max Pacioretty on the wings, centered by Phillip Danault. That combination was effective earlier this winter, carrying the Habs through a stretch when they were missing multiple forwards.

News
Pacioretty picked up a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 4-1 win over Dallas.

Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen was able to turn aside the first 26 shots he faced, but turned back into a pumpkin when Pacioretty beat him in the latter stages of the second period. The 28-year-old winger turned this into his first multi-point effort since March 12 with the lone helper on the game's final goal scored by Alexander Radulov. Pacioretty's career high of 39 goals from the 2013-14 season seems just out of reach, but he's just four shy of his 2014-15 career high of 67 points with six games to play.

News
Gallagher scored his ninth goal of the season in Tuesday's 4-1 win over Dallas. He also had three hits and three shots on goal over 15:05 of ice time.

Gallagher made a nice play entering the zone, giving Kari Lehtonen the impression he was going to pass then zipped one over his shoulder stick-side to score the game-winner. Gallagher continues to play hard nightly despite a season-long slump -- he has a career-low shooting percentage (5.3%) and is not getting power-play ice time these days.

News
Lehkonen scored a goal and had four shots on net in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Stars.

Lehkonen has played 67 games this season after never having played more than 49 games in Europe. The rookie has had to adjust for the length of the NHL schedule. After a particularly fallow period when he went 17 games without a point and a minus-9 rate, Lehkonen has been even in plus-minus with six points over the last 11 games.
