Alex Broadhurst and Joe Pendenza have spent the most time with him as a linemate. However, Schroeder plays best with the youth on the team. He is sharper and plays with more energy when playing alongside guys like Calvin Thurkauf, Sam Vigneault, and Paul Bittner.

However, the team struggled out of the gate and Price wasn’t getting the job done, losing six of his first seven decisions. Finally, as the calendar flipped to November, the Canadiens started to gain some traction and became one of the hottest teams in the league.

Price played that game but since then has been replaced by Charlie Lindgren and Al Montoya — who has since suffered a concussion.

Carey Price should've learned from 2015-16 and not played through injury

In Canada: TSN2 (English), RDS (French)In the Blue Jackets region: FS-OElsewhere: NHL.tv/NHL GameCentre Live, NHL Center Ice

Patrick Lalime, Pittsburgh Penguins (1996-97): Lalime’s start in the NHL was about as good as you can possibly get. In fact, more than 20 years later, he still owns the record for the best start to an NHL career. In his first 16 games, Lalime went 14–0–2. Lalime would slow down as the season progressed and lost the starting job to Ken Wregget prior to the playoffs. He wouldn’t play in the NHL again until 1999-2000 with the Ottawa Senators. Lalime may be remembered most for his time in Ottawa during his 11-year NHL career, but his stint with Pittsburgh was historic.

Rookie goaltender Charlie Lindgren (3-1-0 this season) won yet another game in relief of the injured goaltending duo of Carey Price and Al Montoya, both sidelined with injuries.Stat packJenner has six points (two goals, four assists) in his past seven games. … Weber has nine points (two goals, seven assists) in his past nine games.

By Ryan Szporer November 14th, 2017Silver lining: despite a poor game, the Jackets leave with 2 points. I’ll take it.

Montreal has had their own share of ups and downs. After an opening night win, they proceeded to lose their next seven games. Since then, they have won seven of their last ten. The last four games have been played without star goaltender Carey Price. Yes, Cannonites, Carey Price is out. Backup Al Montoya is injured as well, so Charlie Lindgren has filled in, with a 3-1 record, 1.24 goals against average, and .964 save percentage. Hopefully the Jackets can be the first team to figure him out. How does another 10-0 game sound? It was announced today that the Canadiens claimed Antti Niemi on waivers…but why?

Canadiens remind Bruins fans it could be worse, claim Antti Niemi

Coming into the game, the Canadiens had the NHL’s fourth-worst offence, averaging 2.50 goals per game. This has nothing to do with goalie Carey Price, who is out indefinitely with a lower-body injury, or his replacement Charlie Lindgren, who put in another solid performance.  In nine games with the Monsters this season, Jordan Schroeder has notched five points in the form of two goals and three assists. Two of those assists came in the Monsters win over the IceHogs who were number one in the division at that time.

The Canadiens came out sluggish and had only three shots on goal in the first 12 minutes.

They signed him to that contract extension back in July in spite of his injury history, which is long and concerning. And they can’t possibly be happy about the fact that he concealed this most recent injury and decided to play an entire game on it.

Josh Anderson scored for the Blue Jackets in the first period and Paul Byron replied for the Canadiens in the third.

Montreal Canadiens: The Significance of the Antti Niemi Waiver Claim

This is the first meeting against the Blue Jackets this season, with Columbus taking two of three last season. Montreal was shellacked in their first meeting when they traveled to Ohio and Nationwide Arena, getting drubbed 10-0. All but two Jackets got on the scoresheet, and for Montreal, then head coach Michel Therrien left Montoya in for the entire game, and received much criticism afterward.

Good news, finally, as Zach Werenski scores off a beautiful feed from Cam Atkinson.

Wayne Thomas’ NHL career started with an 8-1-0 record in 1972-73. Two seasons prior to that, Ken Dryden won his first six decisions as a rookie.

But the combination of Price being the franchise goalie, the calendar saying it’s only Nov. 14 and the play of Charlie Lindgren has meant that the netminder will be able to take his time to recover from an injury suffered during warmups on Nov. 2. He’s missed the last five games, but the Habs won four of those five.
