Montreal Canadiens star goaltender Carey Price will miss the rest of the Eastern Conference Final against the New York Rangers, coach Michel Therrien said after the team’s morning skate Monday. “We’ve lost our best player, but we’ve faced adversity this year already,” Therrien said. Peter Budaj will likely be the starter in Game 2 at Bell Centre.  Both Budaj and Dustin Tokarski were on the ice for the morning skate, reports NHL.com. Price was injured in the second period in Game 1 when Rangers forward Chris Kreider lost his footing and crashed into Price. Price was wincing in pain, but remained in the game.  However, he did not play in the third period after allowing four goals on 20 shots through 40 minutes. Budaj replaced Price and allowed three goals in his first action of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Price has a 2.35 goals-against average and .919 save percentage in the postseason. “I’m really disappointed,” Therrien said. “Obviously he’s our best player. Looking at the incident, it’s a reckless play. That’s the truth.” The post Canadiens lose Carey Price for rest of conference final appeared first on Sports Glory.

Your browser does not support iframes.In re-watching this video, I am not seeing an intent by New York Rangers forward Chris Kreider.

Apparently, the head coach of the Montreal Canadiens...

Rangers need to find an answer for Pacioretty and Habs top line

The Canadiens played well enough to win game two. If it weren’t for Henrik Lundqvist standing tall during the Habs onslaught in the first period, the game could have been over shortly after it started.
