Carey Price is expected to start in net Saturday for the Habs, while Keith Kinkaid will likely go Sunday in the second half of the back-to-back, reports TSN's John Lu.

Tavares is expected to be out at least two weeks as he recovers from a broken finger sustained in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Wild.
