Fred PoulinCorrespondent IDecember 12, 2008

The Montreal Canadiens announced today that forward Christopher Higgins will be sidelined for four to six weeks as a result of a shoulder injury sustained on Tuesday against the Calgary Flames.

In 21 games, Higgins has five goals and four assists.

Meanwhile, Carey Price is day-to-day with the flu. As a precautionary measure, GM Bob Gainey recalled Marc Denis from Hamilton.

Expect Jaroslav Halak to get the nod in goal against the Capitals.
