Apparently that flu bug that kept Carey Price off the ice at practice yesterday was the 24-hour variety. Price has been named to start in goal tonight in the Canadiens season opener against the Maple Leafs in Toronto.
Roster players not available tonight; Michael Cammalleri (one game suspension) and Roman Hamrlik (knee).
