Price appeared to injure himself on the game-tying goal by Ottawa's Cory Conacher with 22.6 seconds remaining. Peter Budaj led the Canadiens onto the ice for overtime and allowed the winning goal by Kyle Turris 2:32 into overtime as the Senators rallied for a 3-2 victory and a 3-1 lead in the best-of-7 series.
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.
