The Canadiens (29 14 5) did it without No. 1 goalie Carey Price, who was given the night off in favour of Peter Budaj. Rubbing salt into the wound, Montreal chased Toronto starter James Reimer early in the third period.
wasn my best game, said Reimer. couple of unlucky bounces and stuff like that. You take some of the positives and then you flush it. agreed on both counts.
