Canadiens' Carey Price will miss remainder of Eastern Conference final due to injury
Between posting a career-high save percentage, winning an Olympic gold medal as Canadian starter, and leading an underdog Montreal Canadiens team to an Eastern Conference final berth, Carey Price was in the midst of a career year.
But this is a tough way for that season to (possibly) come to an end:
"I'm really disappointed" added Michel Therrien, per Sportsnet's Chris Johnston. "Obviously he's our best player. Look at the incident it's a reckless play. That's the truth."
Price was hurt when Rangers forward Chris Kreider slammed into him skates first in the second period of Game 1 on Saturday afternoon. He sat out the third period, replaced by backup Peter Budaj, but remained on the bench.
Montreal's starter for Game 2 won't be known until shortly before puck drop Monday night:
