BROSSARD, Quebec (AP) -- Peter Budaj will make a third straight start in goal when the Montreal Canadiens host the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night.

Carey Price aggravated a lower-body injury sustained at the Sochi Olympics, where he went 5-0 and led Team Canada to the gold medal.

Price will accompany the team when it leaves Sunday on a four-game road trip to Los Angeles, Anaheim, Phoenix and San Jose.

Coach Michel Therrien says ''with the treatments he's getting, we're confident he will be back fairly soon.''

Budaj was in goal for a 2-1 overtime loss to Detroit in Montreal's first post-Olympics game Wednesday and started again for a 6-5 shootout win in Pittsburgh the following night.
