BROSSARD, Quebec -- Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price took part in practice Monday and said if he wakes up Tuesday morning feeling good he should be able to face the Nashville Predators that evening.

"We'll see in the morning," Price repeated at least four times when asked whether he will face the Predators.

Price missed the Canadiens' 6-4 win Saturday against the New York Islanders with an upper-body injury he sustained in a collision with Chris Calvert of the Columbus Blue Jackets on Jan. 14. Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty pushed Calvert from behind as he was breaking in on goal, and Price's back was driven into the goalpost in the ensuing collision.

"I had a lingering problem before that and this kind of compounded the issue," Price said. "We thought it best to just take a couple of days and get it better."
