In recent minutes, the head coach of the Montreal Canadiens, Martin St-Louis, has confirmed what many had thought. Indeed, Quebec goaltender Samuel Montembeault will be back in net for a second consecutive game.

"Samuel Montembeault will be back in goal against the Oilers." - Montreal Canadiens

Present at last night's Trois-Rivières Lions game, Montembeault had somewhat let slip during an interview on TVA Sports. Although he did not officially confirm that he would be the starting goalie against the Edmonton Oilers, he hinted that he would get a second consecutive start.

Now, it's official! Samuel Montembeault will face one of the best offenses in the NHL tonight.


Martin St-Louis has finally ended the constant rotation in the Montreal net, as the 27-year-old goalie will start his fifth game in the last seven for the Canadiens. This is excellent news for the Bleu-Blanc-Rouge, as he is certainly the organization's best goalie at the moment.

The Bécancour native is having an excellent season, compiling a record of nine wins, six losses, and three overtime losses. Moreover, he has recorded a goals-against average of 2.94 and a save percentage of 0.907.
