Report: Dustin Tokarski to get start in goal vs. Rangers on Monday
Dustin Tokarski, who has just 10 NHL games under his belt, will reportedly get the start in goal as the Montreal Canadiens host the New York Rangers in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Monday, according to Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports.
The Rangers easily won Game 1 by a score of 7-2 this past Saturday. With Canadiens goalie Carey Price injured, head coach Michel Therrien has opted to go with the 24-year-old rookie Tokarski over Peter Budaj.
Tokarski has a 2.38 GAA and .919 save percentage in 41 AHL games this season. The 31-year-old Budaj has a 5.13 GAA and .843 save percentage in seven career playoff games.
