  • Canadiens' Carey Price: First win since 2021 postseason

    Price made 37 saves in Friday's 10-2 win over Florida.

    Price has started 700 NHL games, all with Montreal, and has 361 wins. But it was his first win since Game 4 of the 2021 Stanley Cup Final and caps a season he'd prefer to forget. Another offseason of rest and recovery will hopefully fuel a better 2022-23.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: In net for finale

    Price (undisclosed) will start Friday's season finale against the Panthers.

    A recent evaluation must have revealed no risk of injury, as the Canadiens would have no reason to deploy Price in this meaningless game if he wasn't fully healthy. Even with Florida sitting most of its key contributors in preparation for the postseason, Price won't be an advisable fantasy option given his 0-4-0 record, 4.03 GAA and .853 save percentage.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: Heading for evaluation

    Price (undisclosed) will travel with the team to New York (ahead of Wednesday's game against the Rangers) for a medical evaluation.

    Already confirmed unavailable Wednesday, Price will have just one opportunity to return in the team's final game of the season Friday against visiting Florida. Given his injury history and struggles in just four outings this season (4.03 GAA, .853 save percentage), it wouldn't be surprising if he doesn't suit up again until 2022-23.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: Missing next two games

    Price (rest) will not be available Sunday against Boston or Wednesday against the Rangers, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    Price could return for Montreal's season finale against Florida on Friday but it's unclear if he'll be available at this time. The veteran netminder is 0-4-0 with a brutal 4.04 GAA and .853 save percentage since returning from knee and hip injuries this month. Sam Montembeault will start Sunday with Cayden Primeau backing up.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: Gives up three in 1:07 in second

    Price made 20 saves in a 6-4 loss to Ottawa on Saturday.

    The game was lost in an ugly second period when the Sens scored three goals in 1:07 to explode out to a 5-1 lead. Parker Kelly started that stretch with a wrist shot in the top left corner on a 2-on-1 at 6:43. Then Josh Norris was credited with a goal at 7:15 when Brady Tkachuk's pass went in off his skate. Mark Kastelic scored his second of the game at 7:50 with a sweet backhand deke in tight. Price remains without a win (0-4-0) since his return and has a 4.04 GAA and .853 save percentage.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: Making road start

    Price will patrol the crease during Saturday's road game versus the Senators, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    Price struggled in his last start Thursday against the Flyers, allowing six goals on 34 shots en route to a 6-3 loss. He'll try to secure his first win of the year in a road matchup with an Ottawa team that's 13-21-4 at home this season.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: Struggles against Flyers

    Price allowed six goals on 34 shots in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Flyers.

    After getting zero goals of support from Montreal's offense in his first two starts of the season, Price did himself no favors in the third, allowing two goals in each period. James van Riemsdyk scored the first and last goals against Price, and the Flyers added four others in between. Price is 0-3 this season, but the important thing is that he's healthy and should be able to hit the ground running next year.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: Starting again Thursday

    Price will start against visiting Philadelphia on Thursday.

    Price will make his third start of the season after a pair of losses where he allowed just two goals in each but didn't receive a single goal of support by the Canadiens offense. The Flyers have managed an average 2.64 goals for since March 1 (28th overall), which should bode well for the veteran netminder, but the fact the Habs have had trouble finding twine recently is certainly a cause for concern.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: No help in shutout loss

    Price stopped 28 of 30 shots in Tuesday's 2-0 loss to the Wild.

    Price wasn't bad but got no support from his teammates. He's 0-2-0 despite posting an excellent 2.02 GAA and .918 save percentage since making his season debut. Price could provide some late-season fantasy value, though doing so won't be easy considering he plays for a Montreal team that's bringing up the rear in the Eastern Conference standings.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: In goal versus Wild

    Price will get the starting nod at home against Minnesota on Tuesday.

    Price's season debut was a relatively quiet outing, as he faced just 19 shots, stopping 17 in a losing effort against the Islanders. The veteran netminder will likely continue to see a portion of the workload heading into the final six games of the season but shouldn't be expected to overwork himself considering he missed the majority of the season due to a long-term knee injury.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: No help in season debut

    Price allowed two goals on 19 shots in Friday's 3-0 loss to the Islanders. The third goal was an empty-netter.

    Price's last game was Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals in July. He got a good look at what it's been like for the Canadiens all year -- they posted 44 shots against Ilya Sorokin, who turned them all aside to spoil Price's return to action. The 34-year-old missed nine months as he recovered from knee and hip injuries. He'll likely start at least semi-regularly over the Canadiens' last seven games to close out 2021-22.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: Making season debut

    Price (knee) will be activated off long-term injured reserve and guard the home goal during Friday's matchup with the Islanders, Sportsnet reports.

    It's been a long road to recovery for Price, who hasn't played since the 2020-21 Stanley Cup Final due to knee and hip issues. The 34-year-old's workload will almost certainly be managed down the stretch, but this is an extremely promising sign for his availability as a No. 1 netminder in 2022-23. Price will try to secure his first win in nine months in a home matchup with an Islanders team that's averaging 2.65 goals per game on the road this year, 23rd in the NHL.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: Making trip

    Price (knee) will travel with the team to Columbus, but he won't play Wednesday versus the Blue Jackets, John Lu of TSN.ca reports.

    Price appears to be close to making his season debut, as he's been traveling and practicing with the team for some time now, but exactly when the 34-year-old vet will get between the pipes remains to be seen. With Jake Allen (lower body) also battling an injury, Sam Montembeault and Cayden Primeau will operate as Montreal's top-two netminders for the time being.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: Confirmed out next two games

    Price (knee), who has been practicing with the team, won't play in either of the Canadiens' next two games, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Price has slowly been working his way back from a long-term knee problem and there was some indication he could be cleared to play soon. Instead, the netminder will need to wait at least two more games before getting a look. It's possible the club could send him down to AHL Laval on a conditioning assignment rather than tossing him directly into an NHL contest.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: Makes appearance at practice

    Price (knee) practiced with the team for the first time this season Saturday.

    Although Price is clearly making progress in his recovery, there's still no timeline for his return, and with the Canadiens well out of the playoff race, it wouldn't be surprising to see the 34-year-old goaltender ultimately miss the entirety of the 2021-22 campaign.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: Faces shots

    Price (knee) has been facing shots for the first time since undergoing surgery last July, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

    Price resumed skating last week after being held off the ice for a three-week stretch beginning mid-February. That return morphed into taking shots, a hopeful sign that the goalie may play this season. Another possibility is that the Canadiens trade Price, who turns 35 years old in August.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: Resumes skating

    Price (knee) has skated Friday and Saturday as he continues his recovery from knee surgery.

    Price didn't skate for the last half of February, so it's an encouraging sign to see him back on the ice. The 34-year-old probably won't be rushed back given the Canadiens' poor position in the standings, so it remains uncertain if he will get into action this season.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: Remains off ice

    Price (knee) will not resume skating next week, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

    Per Montreal vice president of communications Chantal Machabee on Friday, Price's off-ice work is progressing well, but the goalie "won't be on the ice this upcoming week." It's been more than two weeks since Price last took to the ice. Back in January, Price said playing this season was still a goal but the number of starts, stops and setbacks suggest this will be a lost season for the 34-year-old netminder.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: Not skating this week

    Price (knee) is not expected to return this week.

    Price will refrain from skating and continue training in a gym as a part of a rehab program. Montreal has five games February games remaining on its schedule. Last season, the now 34-year-old posted a 25-16-5 record with 2.47 GAA and .913 save percentage.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: Still not seeing shots

    Price (knee) skated with an assistant athletic therapist for about 20 minutes prior to Monday's practice, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

    Price was in full gear but has yet to face any shots since he's resumed skating. The positive takeaways are that he skated longer Monday than in previous sessions, and the goalie did not suffer a setback, as was the case in earlier attempts to return from the knee injury.
