The Montreal Canadiens recalled goaltender Charlie Lindgren on an emergency basis Saturday with regular starter Carey Price out due to flu-like symptoms.
Lindgren has a 2-1-0 record in three games with the American Hockey League’s Laval Rocket this season. He has a 2.39 goals-against average and .875 save percentage.
He was expected to serve as a backup to Antti Niemi for Saturday night’s home game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
