Canadiens goaltender Price skates without equipment

Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price skated without equipment Monday at their practice facility in Brossard, Quebec.

Price was declared out for the Eastern Conference Final after he was injured in Game 1, and coach Michel Therrien reiterated Monday that is still the case.

"A great sign," Therrien said of Price skating. "It's part of the rehab."

Veteran backup Peter Budaj played the third period in relief of Price in the series opener and rookie Dustin Tokarski has started the past three games, winning once.

The Canadiens trail the best-of-7 series against the New York Rangers 3-1 with Game 5 at Bell Centre on Tuesday (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, RDS).

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
