Jaroslav Halak Rewarded by Guy Carbonneau

Francois GendronSenior Writer IFebruary 15, 2009

Montreal Canadiens' goaltender Jaroslav Halak will see action for a second game in a row tonight against the Vancouver Canucks.

After a brilliant 46 saves Friday night in Colorado, good for a 4-2 victory, head coach Guy Carbonneau had no choice but to put Halak back in net for tonight's game. The points are too important for the head coach to take a chance with the struggling Carey Price.

Price had circled this date a long time ago as he would've played for the first time in his home province, British Columbia. Asked about it he muttered: ''It sucks, but I don't deserve it.''

You are right about that Carey, you don't deserve it.

The Canadiens will try to win a second game in a row tonight.
