Published January 22, 2022 at 9:43 PM

Absent from the game against the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday, Montreal Canadiens goaltender Samuel Montembeault may face surgery.

Recall that the 25-year-old Quebecer had impressed this week by becoming the first goaltender in the Montreal Canadiens history to achieve two performances of 48 saves in two consecutive games.
