NEW YORK -- Carey Price is a former Hart Memorial Trophy winner as the National Hockey Leagues most valuable player.As a veteran of five different teams dating back to the 2008-09 season, Al Montoya is the textbook definition of a journeyman backup.Price and Montoya have plenty in common this season, though: The Montreal Canadiens simply dont lose in regulation with either one of them in net.The Canadiens (5-0-1)will look to remain perfect in regulation Wednesday night, when they visit the New York Islanders at Barclays Center. Montreal, the lone NHL team still unbeaten in regulation, is coming off a 3-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday night.New York (3-3-0) last played Sunday, when it beat the Minnesota Wild 6-3.Montoya will draw the start Wednesday in place of Price, who started and won each of the Canadiens past three games. Montoya opened the season by going 2-0-1 as Price recovered from a lengthy bout with the flu.The game will be a reunion of sorts for Montoya, who played 51 games for the Islanders -- the most he has played for any NHL team -- while the team was still housed at Nassau Coliseum during the 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons.Itll be a special game, Montoya said Tuesday. I spent the start of my career in Long Island. Its a fantastic organization, team and staff. Its a special place for me, but now that theyre in Brooklyn, I look forward to going there and getting a win.Montoya is 3-0-0 in three career appearances against the Islanders. He last opposed New York on Feb. 3, 2015, when he stopped 32 of the 34 shots he faced in the Florida Panthers 4-2 win at Nassau Coliseum.Perhaps the presence of Montoya will help the Canadiens remain among the NHLs elite all season. Montreal opened last year 9-0-0 but fell apart after Price sustained a season-ending knee injury Nov. 25. The Canadiens ended up missing the playoffs entirely with a 38-38-6 record.Nobody has to remind Montreal coach Michel Therrien how early it is in the season, but he said Tuesday he likes what he is seeing of the Canadiens on and off the ice.We got off to a good start last year, Therrien said. Guys buy into the team concept. Its important. The atmosphere of this hockey team has been solid since training camp.The Islanders will look to maintain the offensive flow they finally found Sunday, when defensemen Johnny Boychuk, Calvin de Haan and Thomas Hickey and centers John Tavares (two goals) and Alan Quine all scored goals in the rout of the Wild.New York scored three goals or fewer in each of its first five games, the franchises longest such streak at the start of a season since 2009-10.We got some big goals from all parts of the lineup, Tavares told Newsday. It takes a little time to find your game and find that rhythm, and I thought we did some good things tonight.The Islanders ranked 10th in the NHL in goals scored last season.Hopefully thatll give them a boost to get going, to get on the board like that, Islanders coach Jack Capuano said.No. 1 goalie Jaroslav Halak is likely to start for the Islanders after sitting out Sundays game in favor of Thomas Greiss. Halak, who is 2-2-0 this season, will also be facing a former team. He played 101 games with the Canadiens during his first four NHL seasons.The last time Halak faced the Canadiens on Nov. 20, 2015, he was pulled after allowing three goals in the first period of a 5-3 loss. Greiss ended up absorbing the loss in that game after allowing the decisive goal in the second period. Stitched China NFL Jerseys .

Sale NFL Jerseys . -- The Bishops Gaiters are showing they belong among the countrys top varsity football teams.LOS ANGELES -- Raffi Torres spent the past year in Phoenix and San Jose trying to shake his reputation as a dangerous player. His hit on Los Angeles centre Jarret Stoll might have erased much of that work and put both players post-season futures in doubt. Stoll is likely to miss Game 2 of the Kings second-round playoff series against the Sharks on Thursday night. The valuable two-way forward didnt return to the series opener after a hard hit from Torres late in the second period of Los Angeles 2-0 victory. Kings coach Darryl Sutter implied Wednesday that Stoll could be out for a significant length of time. Torres also might be sidelined for a stretch after he travels to New York for a disciplinary hearing Thursday with the NHLs Department of Player Safety, which suspended him until the hearing is completed. "I thought it was careless," Sutter said of Torres hit, which occurred near the sideboards after the puck rolled away from Stoll. A lengthy suspension wouldnt make Sutter feel any better about Torres play, either: "Our player is quite a bit more important than theirs." During the defending Stanley Cup champions 2-0 victory over the Sharks, Stoll was bent forward when Torres approached him from the side for a shoulder-to-shoulder hit. Stolls head also snapped back violently before he fell forward onto the ice. Torres was called for a minor penalty for charging, and Stoll didnt return to the game. Most of the Kings declined to weigh in on the hits legality after Wednesdays light practice, claiming they hadnt seen replays. Stoll attended the Kings team meeting before practice, but wasnt on the ice. The Sharks had much stronger opinions about the play: Torres, captain Joe Thornton and coach Todd McLellan all said the hit was perfectly legal, and shouldnt even have resulted in San Joses only penalty in Game 1. "We questioned the call of a charging penalty," Thornton said. "So we were kind of shocked to hear he has to fly to New York for the hearing, because we didnt see anything wrong on the play. ... Its unfortunate that Raffi has to go through this again." Further complicating matters, Stoll and Torres are friends after three seasons as teammates with the Edmonton Oilers from 2005-08. The Kings would lose plenty without Stoll, a stalwart on their championship team last summer. Stoll is their third-line centre and a top penalty-killer and faceoff specialist, playing a valuable two-way game while also logging time on the power play. Although he doesnt score many points, getting just one assist in seven playoff games this spring, Stoll scored the series-winning goal in last seasons upset of top-seedded Vancouver in the first round on the way to the title.dddddddddddd He also has a history of apparent concussions earlier in his career. "Hes a big loss, one of our most valuable guys," Kings defenceman Drew Doughty said. "Everybody else will have to step up if we want to keep going forward." Torres absence isnt likely to affect the Sharks offensive efforts against goalie Jonathan Quick, who shut them out on 35 shots in the series opener. But Stolls absence on defence changes the mix for Los Angeles, which must entrust additional ice time to role players without one of its leaders. Brad Richardson, who played 13 games during the Kings championship playoff run, is likely to replace Stoll in the lineup for Game 2. Richardson hasnt played in this post-season since Game 1 of the Kings first-round series with St. Louis. "Its huge, because hes one of our clutch players," Richardson said of Stoll. "Hes the first guy on the penalty kill, and hes a power-play guy." Even if it is deemed legal, the hit ignites another round of trouble for Torres, the journeyman forward whose ugly reputation has surfaced again. While playing for Phoenix last season, Torres received a 21-game suspension -- initially 25 games -- for a high hit on Chicago star Marian Hossa in the first round of the playoffs. That play cemented Torres identity as a cheap shot artist and dangerous player in many NHL minds. But the former No. 5 overall draft pick insists he has cleaned up his game during a season of largely trouble-free play with San Jose, his sixth team in six seasons. "If he is going to miss some games, were going to miss him," said Sharks forward Logan Couture, who thought the hit was clean from his on-ice viewpoint. "But its an opportunity for other guys to step up the physical play and try to take over his role. Were going to support Raffi, and whatever happens, happens." Kings forward Dustin Penner thought Torres hit was objectionable mostly because it was unnecessary. He sees little comparison to the hit by Ottawas Eric Gryba on Montreal centre Lars Eller in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series, resulting in a two-game suspension for a blow that left Eller with a concussion and a broken nose. Eller didnt return to the series as the Senators advanced. "I think that hit (in Ottawa) was fine," Penner said. "I know some people dont, but its a split-second decision. You guys can slow it down to .001 milliseconds, but hes got to make that hit, and this one (by Torres), he probably didnt need to make that hit. Thats where I see the difference."
