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.
