UPDATE: Jaroslav Halak will start tomorrow versus the Rangers (RDS.ca)

Canadiens third string goalie Marc Denis is waiting for his chance to play in the NHL again. "It's not like I'm a kid on the way up; I'm a 31-year-old goaltender and this could be my last kick at the can."

Early reports noted Carey Price, out with a 'lower-body' injury, would return soon. Considering Price only practiced for five minutes yesterday, it appears he's not ready for a return this week.

Current starting goalie Jaroslav Halak has given up eight goals in his last two games going 1-1. If Halak's struggles continue Denis could see that start he's looking for in one of the B2B games coming up.
