Carey Price stopped 29 of 30 shots, as the Montreal Canadiens were defeated 2-0 by the Washington Capitals on Sunday night.
Price appeared to be in mid-season form. He was beaten by Joel Ward with 1:29 left in the third period. The Canadiens didn't give Price any run support tonight. Washington held Montreal to only 18 shots on goal. On a positive note, Price seems to be completely healed from the knee injury that ended his playoffs early last year. Sep 28 - 8:49 PM

Carey Price would have been one of the new Montreal Canadiens' alternate captains if NHL rules didn't preclude goalies from having that honor.

The Habs have chosen to play in the coming season without a captain for the second time in team history, naming Andrei Markov, Tomas Plekanec, Max Pacioretty and P.K. Subban to serve as alternates. But "one guy we don't want to forget is Carey Price," coach Michel Therrien said. "If the league would allow us to give him a letter, certainly he would have [had one] considering his position with the team. But he's part of that group. Carey's a good leader for us, the way he handles himself on the ice, off the ice. Certainly he's going to be part of it when I meet the players. In the past, every time, I was having meetings with the captain and the assistants. This year, [Price] is going to be there."

Carey Price's knee is expected to be at 100 percent soon.

He's projected to be ready to participate in the preseason. Price was hurt during the playoffs.
Sep 15 - 12:10 PM

Carey Price (knee) was back on the ice a couple of weeks ago in Kelowna.

He stayed in Montreal until late June to work on his rehabilitation from a sprained knee. Price has been skating with former teammate Josh Gorges, Travis Moen and other NHLers. "It's probably been one of the fastest summers I can remember," Price said. "(Skating) is going pretty good so far. So far, so good." He was injured in the Eastern Conference Final when Rangers winger Chris Kreider crashed into him during Game 1. It sounds like he'll be ready to go by the time training camp opens.

Carey Price doesn't require surgery for the leg injury he sustained when Chris Kreider crashed into him during Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final.

Price said he's doing okay, but he doesn't plan to start skating until mid-August. He had a 2.32 GAA and .927 save percentage in 59 games last season.

Carey Price (lower body) doesn’t believe Chris Kreider crashed into him on purpose.

The Rangers forward appeared to lose his balance and collided with Price in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final, sidelining him for the rest of the series. "No, I don’t think it was on purpose," Price said. "Hockey is a rough sport. Injuries happen all the time. Sometimes they’re intentional, sometimes it’s just bad luck."

Carey Price said his "lower-body injury" won't require surgery.

He wouldn't divulge the nature of his ailment, but it was suspected to be a knee problem. Price did state that the ailment was unrelated to the one he had at the Winter Olympics. He may have been available for the Stanley Cup Final had the Canadiens advanced.
May 31 - 5:19 PM

Carey Price (knee) took to the ice at the end of Thursday's morning skate in full equipment for a third straight day.

He worked out by himself and then he faced a few shots from his teammates. Price still isn't ready to return, so Dustin Tokarski is expected to start in Game 6 versus the New York Rangers.
May 29 - 4:35 PM

Canadiens coach Michel Therrien once again stated that Carey Price (knee) won't return before the end of the Eastern Conference Final.

Questions about Price's status were renewed after he skated in full gear Tuesday morning. He might be able to return in time for the Stanley Cup Final should the Canadiens make it that far, but for now they'll have to rely on goaltender Dustin Tokarski.
May 27 - 12:19 PM

Carey Price (knee) skated in full gear before Tuesday's practice.

It is Price's second straight day on the ice and the first time he has worn equipment. Canadiens coach Michel Therrien ruled him out for the series and reiterated that on Sunday. Price might end up defying that if this series drags on, but he isn't expected to return for Game 5 on Tuesday.
May 27 - 10:50 AM

Carey Price (knee) skated Monday morning without equipment.

Dustin Tokarski has started the last three games for Montreal while Price has been out of commission with a knee injury. Price isn't expected to play at all in the Eastern Conference Final, but it is encouraging that he's back on the ice.
May 26 - 1:17 PM

Carey Price (knee) will miss the remainder of the Eastern Conference Final.

It's still possible for Price to play in the Stanley Cup Final if Montreal makes it that far. That will be difficult for the Canadiens though. The New York Rangers have a solid team and Montreal is dependent on Price. Peter Budaj might be decent in Price's absence, but he's unlikely to measure up to Rangers netminder Henrik Lundqvist.
May 19 - 11:35 AM

Carey Price (knee) didn't participate in Monday's optional practice.

Price wasn't the only Canadiens' regular to skip the skate though, so we can't come to any conclusions based on his absence. He is still questionable for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Final.
May 19 - 10:45 AM

It's looking like Carey Price will be a game-time decision for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Final on Monday night.

He had a therapy day on Sunday and coach Michel Therrien said: 'We'll see if he's ready to go tomorrow." Price is believed to be playing through chronic tendinitis in his knee, so being run over in Game 1 by New York's Chris Kreider could be a concern for the Canadiens going forward. If Price can't go on Monday then Peter Budaj will start in his place.
May 19 - 7:53 AM

The Montreal Canadiens didn't guarantee that Carey Price will be able to play in Game 2 against the New York Rangers on Monday.

Price may be banged up from a collision with New York Rangers forward Chris Kreider from Game 1 on Saturday. Peter Budaj played (and struggled) in replacing Price late yesterday. It's worth mentioning that Price played through an injury during the 2014 Olympics, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him gut it out, but we'll need to wait and see.
