Canadiens goalie Carey Price out with lower-body injury
MONTREAL (AP) — Montreal goalie Carey Price will miss the Canadiens’ three-game trip because of a lower-body injury.
The Canadiens said Thursday that Price will not travel to Florida. The Canadiens play the Panthers on Friday night, are at NHL-leading Tampa Bay on Saturday night, and at Dallas on Monday night.
Price is 15-10-4 with a 2.84 goals-against average in 30 games this season.
The Canadiens will likely look to Antti Niemi on the trip. He’s 4-3-1 with a 4.14 GAA.
