I am not sayings it's correct , but I have known several doctors that prescribe antibiotics even for a simple cold. They are over prescribed , that said it's not unusual to have antibiotics prescribed for a severe flu. When it is all said and done the team is under no obligation to tell fans everything about every injury or illness.

Its not uncommon for them to be prescribed, especially for a bad one with a fever, see my post above.

According to advanced stats posted by Marc Dumont from EOTP, Carey has prevented 10 goals from going in compared to league average goaltending. Montoya has prevented another 5. That means that together, the Habs can thank goaltending alone for saving 15 goals against compared to having the league average goaltender.

Currently, we have 20 more GF than GA, including a number of empty-net goals that wouldn't have been there if we hadn't been leading. With league-average goaltending, we'd be pretty much even in terms of GF/GA and likely have a record around .500 (i.e. not good enough to make the playoffs). So once again, we are seeing we are a playoff team with Price and a borderline playoff team, maybe not even in the picture, without getting star goaltending. This year, Montoya keeps us above league average even without Price, but the point stands that with league-average goaltending, we would not be having any success.

I'm a bit suprised by Carey price starting tonight I thought Montoya would start tonight versus Detroit  and Carey getting the start tomorrow versus Chicago 

Once again,,,winning within your division usually takes priority. I would prefer to see him vs the Hawks myself but in this case it does make sense,,,unless of course MT is planning on going against the strategy of resting Price on B2B's and giving him both starts. I highly doubt it though.

As usual, the media is blowing Carey's tirade out of proportion and questioning whether he should be suspended. The fact is that we've seen goalies throw blocker punches many times and it's frequently not even been called a penalty, never mind the double minor Price got. I can recall seeing Mike Smith do this twice, once against us and once against the Sens. Ben Bishop has done it repeatedly, here's one of them as he takes a swing with his blocker hand at Prust's face:

Here's Rask hitting Lupul with a blocker:
