Carey Price Will Not Be Participating In The All-Star Game

MONTREAL - The Montreal Canadiens announced that goaltender Carey Price will not be participating in the 2019 NHL All-Star Game.

"We took the time to discuss the situation with Carey and the medical group earlier today, and we all agreed that the best decision for him would be to rest and recuperate during the upcoming All-Star Break. Carey has had a nagging injury for some time, and we want to make sure to have him healthy and rested for the second half of the season. Carey is honored to once again have been named to the NHL All-Star Game, and he is on board with the Club's decision," said Montreal Canadiens general manager, Marc Bergevin.

Video- Montreal Canadiens Disagree On Game Winning Goal By The Colorado Avalanche

from Matt Cudzinowski of Canadiens.com,

 What did Carey Price think of Gabriel Landeskog's game-winning tally on Wednesday night being declared a good goal after video review?

"I disagree with the call," said Price, following a 2-1 loss to the Avalanche at the Pepsi Center. "You get your abilities impeded when you make the move towards the puck, I think it's pretty clear. They had a different opinion on the contact, but that's what it is."...

Like Price, head coach Claude Julien was frustrated with the League's decision that there was no goaltender interference on the play.

During his postgame press conference, the veteran bench boss insisted that if Landeskog hadn't come into contact with his starter, the contest would have remained deadlocked at one goal apiece at that point in time.

"It's 50-50 [when a goal is reviewed]. We don't really know what's good and what's not. We see the same thing, one game it counts and one game it doesn't," said Julien. "It's tough to figure out, but all I know is their player hit our goaltender first, and if he didn't hit him, I can guarantee that Carey would have seen the puck. It's tough, but that's the situation we're in right now in the NHL."

The San Jose Sharks Needed A Win Badly

from Paul Gackle of The Mercury News,

The Sharks are flying back to San Jose with the bandage firmly wrapped after they left a trail of blood from Las Vegas to Buffalo, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal last week.

Joe Pavelski said the Sharks needed to stop the bleeding immediately after Saturday’s blowout loss in Ottawa and they delivered with a 3-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens Sunday night.

The Sharks first-road win since Oct. 28 snapped their four-game losing streak and ended their string of six straight losses away from SAP Center. With two five-on-five goals, the Sharks matched their total produced over the first four games of the trip.

After Saturday’s loss, head coach Pete DeBoer acknowledged that his dressing room was suffering from lack of confidence after opening its five-game road trip with an 0-3-1 record. With that in mind, Justin Braun’s goal at 2:55 of the first was exactly what the Sharks needed to get the good feelings flowing again.

Tomas Tatar Enjoying His Time In Montreal

from Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette,

Things didn’t work out for Tatar in Vegas after the Golden Knights acquired him from the Detroit Red Wings at the NHL trade deadline last season in exchange for a first-round pick at this year’s draft, a second-round pick next year and a third-round pick in 2021. In 20 regular-season games with Vegas, Tatar had 2-4-6 totals and was minus-11 before being a healthy scratch for 12 of 20 playoffs games as the Golden Knights advanced to the Stanley Cup final.

Things have gone much better for Tatar in Montreal, and he’s enjoying everything about being a Canadien.

“I think we’re feeling a lot of support from the fans this season,” he said. “I think we’re trying to work hard for them on the ice and they really appreciate it. They stand behind us. They’ve been loud every time we’ve played at home and we can feel the support.

“In Canada, hockey is the No. 1 sport and you see it through the media and through the outside when you walk around the city,” Tatar added. “There’s a lot of fans out there who watch hockey and want to talk about hockey. Personally, I’m really enjoying it....
