Sharp goaltending powers Canadiens into matchup vs. Flyers

Though the Montreal Canadiens have allowed just four goals during a season-high four-game winning streak, a better defensive effort might be required when they host the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday.

The Canadiens' streak has been carried by goaltenders Carey Price and Antti Niemi. After Montreal outshot the Colorado Avalanche 31-28 in a 3-0 shutout victory for Price on Jan. 12, the Canadiens have been outshot by a 131-76 margin over their last three games.

A 52-save gem from Niemi highlighted Montreal's 5-1 win over the Florida Panthers on Tuesday, and Price turned in two more strong outings in the other two victories. Price made 34 saves Friday as the Canadiens (27-17-5) notched a 4-1 win at the Columbus Blue Jackets.
