Injured Canadiens goalie Price skates in full equipment, but will not play

BROSSARD, Que. - Injured goaltender Carey Price skated for a second straight day on Tuesday, only this time in full equipment.

The Montreal Canadiens goalie was on the ice for about 30 minutes with goaltending coach Stephane Waite and a trainer. He took some soft shots and left well before the rest of the team went on the ice for their game-day skate.

Price had skated in a track suit for about five minutes on Monday. Coach Michel Therrien said it was part of his injury rehab.

He suffered a suspected right knee injury in the second period of Game 1 of the NHL Eastern Conference final when New York forward Chris Kreider crashed into him. He finished the period, but has not played since. Dustin Tokarski has started the last four games.

He was not expected to play in Game 5 on Tuesday night, but working out in the net raises the possibility he could return soon if the Canadiens manage to extend the best-of-seven series to six or seven games. The Rangers lead the series 3-1.

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.
