Head coach Guy Carbonneau is starting Carey Price in Buffalo tonight. He said he was leaning towards starting Jaroslav Halak tomorrow against the Leafs but would make that decision after tonight’s tilt. He wants to see how well Price played in Buffalo tonight before making a decision. Price has played well in back to back games winning against the Flyers on Feb. 16 and 17.
Carbonneau will stick with the same lineup that won 7-5 against the Senators last Monday but said he will give health scratches, Patrice Brisebois and Mathieu Dandenault some playing time against the Toronto Maple Leafs in tomorrow night’s game.
