Monday’s contest in Montreal features two of the top teams in the Eastern Conference. The Hurricanes currently sit atop the Southeast Division, while Montreal sits at fifth in the conference standings. Several players will play a key role in determining whether the high-octane Hurricanes or the red-hot Canadiens go home with the victory. Canadiens goaltender Carey Price may lead the NHL in wins, but he will sit out a second-straight game Monday night due to a bout with the flu, according to Stats LLC. That means Montreal backup goalie Peter Budaj will get another start in net, and is the most important man on the ice for the Canadiens. Budaj will try to stonewall the high-flying Hurricanes offense, which scores an average of 3.15 goals per game, good for sixth-best in the NHL.
