Carey Price may have torn ligaments in his knee

Canadiens Lose Price For Rest Of Series


Montreal coach Michel Therrien on Monday afternoon confirmed an earlier XN Sports report that Canadiens goaltender Carey Price will miss the remainder of the Eastern Conference finals.

A source close to the situation told James Murphy of XN Sports that Price likely hyper-extended his right knee and may have torn ligaments in the knee.

Price suffered the injury when opposing forward Chris Kreider slid into his skates at 3:15 of the second period in the 7-2 loss to the Rangers in Game 1. After staying in the game and allowing two more goals, he was replaced by Peter Budaj before the third.

Price skated with goaltending coach Stephane Waite for about five minutes prior to an optional practice Sunday, mostly side to side in the crease and then left the ice. After practice, Therrien would not confirm if Price would be in the lineup for Game 2 Tuesday.

"Today was an optional practice," Therrien said, according to the report. "It was a therapy day for Carey. We'll see if he's able to play."

Budaj and Dustin Tokarski served as the two goalies for practice and will do the same in Game 2 and for the rest of the best-of-seven series.

Please tell me that if the Americans win, the Canadians will gracefully accept the loser's trophy: Bieber!

I'm a long time Rangers fan. One game means nothing. It takes 4 to win a series. The habs will play much better from now on and it will be a close series, either with Carey or without. I think the Habs didn't realize that this revitalized Rangers team can be so tenatious. Don't forget, the Habs beat perhaps the best team in the NHL in the Bruins. I forsee a 6 or 7 game series.

Sidney Crosby goes into the tank (as usual) and the Rangers come back from a 1-3 against the Pens.

It bites.
