Montreal Canadiens goalie Tomas Halak will be ready for his return from his hip surgery on Monday, team president Geoff Molson announced.

Halak, who missed the last two games with an ankle injury, skated Monday with his teammates.

Halaks absence has been a key reason the Canadiens are 2-1-0 on the road this season.

“He’s been out, so we’re going to have to see how he feels in the next couple of days and how he’s feeling on his own,” Molson said.

“But the fact that he’s out, we’ve been able to use that in the game, and it’s been good for our team.”

Montreal has outscored its opponents, winning the last three games.

The Canadiens, who have been without two top-six forwards since Ryan Stanton suffered a season-ending injury in the second period, are 1-1 since the return of Halak.

The Habs have scored seven goals in their last two victories, with two coming on the power play.

Halas goals came in the third period of Saturday’s win over the Florida Panthers and the third overtime period of Monday’s win at Boston.
