News: Budaj stopped 25 of 28 shots in Wednesday's overtime loss to Chicago. Impact: Not only did he give up the tying-goal to Marian Hossa with less than a minute remaining in regulation, he yielded the winner to Patrick Sharp less than a minute into overtime. While he's not the best option available, you could do worse and Budaj (10-9) could end up with the one more nod before Carey Price takes over the reins as Montreal begins its playoff run.(RotoWire, )

News: Budaj stopped 39 of the 43 shots he faced in Friday's 7-4 win over Ottawa, his first start in four games. Impact: Budaj didn't get off to a great start on the evening as the Senators took a 3-0 lead early, but Budaj kept the Canadiens in the game despite being outshot almost to 2-to-1. Budaj may see a start next week if the Canadiens have sewn up the the No. 2 seed in their matchup against Tampa Bay, but figure Carey Price will get the bulk of the action, as usual.(RotoWire, )
