Jul 31: Carey Price Won't Resume Skating Until mid-August by Fantasy Hockey Standard
Carey Price Won't Resume Skating Until mid-August.
Coach Michel Therrien reiterated Monday that Price (knee) won't be available for the remainder of the Eastern Conference Finals, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.
Price was pulled after two periods Saturday in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference final against the Rangers. He allowed four goals on 20 shots, although there is some concern he may have been pulled because of injury and not poor performance, reports the Associated Press.
Price stopped 34 shots and took a shutout into overtime in Game 4 against the Bruins on Thursday, but Matt Fraser scored on him just 1:19 into the extra frame to send the Habs to a 1-0 loss.
The Bruins reached Price for three third-period goals as the Canadiens faded late to drop a 5-3 decision in Game 2 of the teams' second-round playoff series. He allowed four goals on 34 shots (.882).
Price was pummeled with 51 shots Thursday in Game 1 against Boston, but stopped 48 of them for a 4-3 double-overtime win.
Price stopped 20 of 23 shots to lead the Canadiens to a Game 4 victory and a sweep of the Lightning on Tuesday.
Price allowed one goal on 27 shots in Friday's 4-1 win over Tampa Bay in Game 2 of their Atlantic Division semifinal series.
Price stopped 28 of 30 shots Thursday, but took a 2-0 loss, as the Isles' Evgeni Nabokov was perfect on the other end.
Although he won't start Wednesday's game against the Blackhawks, Price will be in the net for the Habs' final two regular season contests Thursday vs. the Islanders and Saturday vs. the Rangers, Marc Antoine Godin of the Montreal Press reports.
Price was charged with four goals on 30 shots Thursday in Detroit, but came away with a 5-4 victory.
