BREAKING: Tonight's Starting Goalie Revealed by Martin St. Louis

Published January 18, 2024 at 2:16 PM

Since the beginning of 2024, Martin St-Louis's team has been performing well with a record of four wins, two losses, and two overtime defeats, accumulating 10 points out of a possible 16.

The Montreal Canadiens have shown that they can compete with the best teams in the Bettman circuit, not having lost in regulation in their last three games against the Edmonton Oilers, Colorado Avalanche, and New Jersey Devils.

The recent success can be largely attributed to the excellent performances of the goaltenders, who have consistently given the Canadiens a real chance to win each game.

In addition, as reported by Pierre Houde during last night's game, Cayden Primeau did not accompany the team to New Jersey, instead heading directly to Ottawa for the game against the Senators. This led to the belief that the 24-year-old American goalie would get his tenth start of the season, having compiled a record of 4-4-1.

The Blue-White-Red has confirmed this information recently, with head coach Martin St-Louis stating that number 30 would be in net for the game against the Ottawa team.

This is excellent news for the former Laval Rocket netminder, who will have another opportunity to prove to the Canadiens' management that he fully deserves to play the role of the backup goalie, even if Jake Allen has more experience.

It will be interesting to see if the Canadiens can secure a third consecutive victory, as they are only four points behind the Tampa Bay Lightning for the last playoff spot.
