Montreal, QC (Sports Network) - Montreal Canadiens starting
goaltender Carey Price will miss Saturday's game against the Philadelphia
Flyers with the flu.
Price was coming off two straight wins over the Lightning and Panthers earlier
in the week, but was felled with illness on Friday night, according to the
Peter Budaj will get the start, only his third of the season. He is just 0-1-1
in two prior appearances.
"'Buds' has played well for us when he's been in there and then we go and make
mental mistakes and mental errors and we're not sharp," admitted Habs
defenseman Josh Gorges. "We have to do a better job in front of him and help
him out a lot more than we have."
To fill the open roster spot, the Canadiens recalled goaltender Robert Mayer
from Hamilton of the American Hockey League.
Coming into play, the Flyers have won three of their last five games against
the Canadiens in Montreal.
