It may be time to get nervous if you’re a Montreal Canadiens fan.
Price worked with goaltending coach Stephane Waite before heading off. Goalies Peter Budaj and Dustin Tokarski took part in the regular practice. Price was crashed into by New York Rangers forward Chris Kreider in the second period of Montreal’s 7-2 Game 1 loss.
Kreider was tripped up on a break in on Price and bowled through him. Price immediately grabbed his right knee but finished the period. Coach Michel Therrien pulled Price after the period to protect him and not because he was injured.
That latter part is still up for debate, however. If there’s an upside to this for Habs fans it’s that it was an optional practice meaning Price doesn’t have to take part in it.
Therrien said after practice it was a “therapy day” for Price, but wasn’t exactly encouraging when asked if he can go in Game 2.
Peter Budaj said he’s ready to go if called upon. Buckle up, Habs fans.
