Carey Price ruled out for remainder of series for Canadiens
Montreal goaltender Carey Price is done for the remainder of the Canadiens' first-round series against the Senators.
Could things get much worse for the Montreal Canadiens at the moment? The team announced on Thursday that goaltender Carey Price, who was listed as day-to-day, is done for the remainder of their first-round series with the Ottawa Senators.
Price was lifted at the end of regulation in Game 4 on Tuesday night with what the team called a lower-body injury. He appeared to hurt himself stretching for a save. He wasn't ruled out for Game 5 until Thursday morning, after Price didn't appear at the team's pregame skate.
Talk about a huge blow. Even if Price hadn't been playing quite as well as he could have in the second half of this season, he is still a vital piece of their team and has shown that when he's on his game he's as good as anybody in the league.
Now the Habs will turn to Peter Budaj to try to backstop them to a comeback in this series. They go into Game 5 on Thursday night in Montreal down 3-1, just one game from seeing their season come to an end. No pressure there, Peter.
The news of Price's injury comes a day after the Canadiens announced that captain Brian Gionta is done for the season with a torn right biceps.
On the streets of Montreal, this is what I envision is happening right now (thanks to @chrismpeters).
