Landeskog scores in return from injury, Avalanche beat Canadiens 3-2

Canadiens rookie goalie Cayden Primeau to make first regular-season start

Canadiens rookie goalie Cayden Primeau to make first regular-season start

The Montreal Canadiens are reeling.

Boo Nieves was sent down to Hartford with Greg McKegg back in the lineup.

The teams exchanged their chances in the first five minutes. He has missed 16 games with a lower-body injury, but coach Jared Bednar said there's a possibility he could face the Canadiens. Montreal forward Jesperi Kotkaniemi did not play after he sustained a concussion in a 3-2 loss to the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday.

Now Landeskog and Andre Burakovsky might be ready to make their returns Thursday.

Colorado's captain used a fantastic individual effort to score a first-period goal and nearly had another as the Avs extended their winning streak to five games with a 3-2 triumph over the Montreal Canadiens.

Kotkaniemi crashed to the ice, hit his head with a thud, leaving the game immediately, and Montreal quickly ruled him out of the contest with an upper body injury.

Thompson scored off a pass from Nick Cousins to end a 12-game goal drought. "We looked into it ... and I had to sit out".

Airstrikes Kill at Least 19 Civilians in Northwest Syria: Monitor
The air raids hit the jihadist-run northwestern region of Idlib , in the country's last major opposition bastion, earlier today. At least 11 people were killed in Syrian government air strikes that hit two outdoor markets on Monday, the civil defence said.

"We had some chemistry when we played together before and we were excited to be together again", Thompson said. It was Thompson's first goal since 9 November. Joonas Donskoi has collected 12 points over the last 10 games for Colorado. The Canadians led 4-0, before the Rangers stormed back and won 6: 5.

Philipp Grubauer made 38 saves against the Maple Leafs. The difference this around was both teams made fewer mistakes and Carey Price and Alexandar Georgiev were both sharp.

"I don't like it because one of (Zadorov's) skates comes up behind his leg", said coach Claude Julien. "I don't think either team was happy with the goals against the last round". "It's about telling yourself we're going to get out of this by doing the right things". "There's too much BS in our game when we're struggling".

"I hope that in a month from now we can say that adversity is what made us the team that we are today".

It's perplexing. We should be encouraged by a team that has gone 6-2-1 in its last nine games. Primeau was called up from the Laval Rocket this week as a replacement for the underperforming Keith Kinkaid. The 34-year-old Weber was on the ice for 29:49 Tuesday and was named the game's first star.

Frankly, I thought the Canadiens would go back to Carey Price tonight and give the rookie the start in NY on Friday since he's a New Jersey native and it would have been close to home.

"We think Primeau has a great future", Julien said.
