Concussion ends Price's season
The Montreal Canadiens announced Wednesday that goalie Carey Price will miss the final three games of the season with a concussion.

In a statement issued by the team, the Canadiens said Price was examined by Dr. David Mulder, who diagnosed a mild concussion.

Price was hit on the head during practice last Thursday when teammate David Desharnais landed on him during a drill. Price started Friday's game against the New York Rangers, but sat out Saturday's game against the Washington Capitals.

Price told the team Monday he was suffering from headaches.

Peter Budaj will start Wednesday's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning, with Robert Mayer called up from Hamilton of the American Hockey League to serve as the backup.

Price finishes the season 26-28-11 with a 2.43 goals-against average and .916 save percentage in 65 games.

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.
