Canadiens goalie Carey Price out for rest of East final against Rangers after Game 1 injury

BROSSARD, Que. - The Montreal Canadiens will be without star goaltender Carey Price for the rest of the Eastern Conference finals against the New York Rangers.

Canadiens coach Michel Therrien announced the decision before Game 2 of the series Monday night. Price was hurt during New York's 7-2 victory Saturday.

Rangers forward Chris Kreider crashed into Price skates-first after missing the net on a breakaway in the second period. Price lay on the ice with what appeared to be an injured right knee. He stayed in the game but was replaced by Peter Budaj for the third period.

Quote of the Day

My job was to get that puck and put it on net, and his job was not letting me do it. I got the best of that, but that game's over and to be honest I already forgot about it.
