Martin St-Louis confirms a very surprising piece of news

Published February 13, 2024 at 12:01

Last Saturday, Samuel Montembeault was brilliant against the Dallas Stars despite the loss, making 35 saves on 38 shots. Jake Allen didn't have the same impact on Sunday, allowing 7 goals.

While the Ducks are in town at the Bell Centre on Tuesday night, it was expected that number 35 would be back, but that's not the case. Martin St-Louis has just confirmed the news.

It's quite surprising, especially as the Canadiens have just suffered two consecutive losses. Primeau hasn't played in almost a month, which is likely a factor in St-Louis' decision.

The Canadiens play on Thursday and Saturday against the Rangers and the Capitals. So, we should expect Montembeault to get both starts, unless there's a surprise or a very poor performance.
