Canadiens' Carey Price: Now confirmed to start Saturday

Price will start in goal Saturday night on the road against the Capitals, Dave Stubbs of NHL.com reports.

Canadiens coach Michel Therrien pulled Price from Friday's eventual loss to the Sharks after the perennial stud tender uncharacteristically coughed up four goals on 18 shots by the 6:44 mark of the second period. After Price was yanked, theScore was one of several media outlets to have published a video of the netminder staring down the Habs' bench upon getting replaced by backup Al Montoya, who was originally scheduled to start Saturday. If you're lucky enough to own Price, one of the best in the game, the hope is that he can control his emotions in the next contest. In 18 career outings against Washington, he's struggled with a 5-9-4 record, 3.08 GAA and .898 save percentage.
