NEW YORK -- Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price left the game Wednesday against the New York Rangers after two periods with the same lower-body injury that kept him out of the lineup for nine games from Oct. 30 through Nov. 19.

Price's right leg appeared to bend awkwardly when he was trying to move across the crease during a sequence in the second period.

Montreal coach Michel Therrien said he did not know how long Price would be out of the lineup. He will not play against the New Jersey Devils at Prudential Center on Friday, but wasn't scheduled to play in that game. The Canadiens play the Devils at Bell Centre on Saturday.

Price was playing his third game since returning from the injury last Friday against the New York Islanders at Barclays Center. He finished with 22 saves in two periods Wednesday. Rookie backup Mike Condon replaced Price and made 11 saves in a 5-1 win.

"The medical staff was really comfortable and Carey was really comfortable to come back," Therrien said. "If we would have had any doubt, for sure we were never going to take that risk. That's all we could say about it. He tweaked it again tonight and that's why we don't want to take any chances. It's still early in the season, so it's important for us that when he plays he's got to make sure he's healthy."

NEW YORK -- Marc Bergevin has guided the Montreal Canadiens from worst to first in the Eastern Conference since he was hired as the 17th general manager in their history prior to the 2012-13 season. He was rewarded Wednesday with a five-year contract extension.

Bergevin's extension carries him through the 2021-22 season. He has this season and the 2016-17 season remaining on his current contract, which he signed when he was hired by the Canadiens on May 2, 2012.

"It's all about timing, but [Canadiens owner] Geoff [Molson] has shown me on a few occasions in the past that he was willing to keep me in Montreal, and at the end of the day, the timing was right and we got the deal done," Bergevin said. "Today, I think we're both happy."
