BROSSARD, Quebec -- Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price returned to practice Wednesday for the first time this month, earning a round of applause from his teammates around the pre-practice stretching circle.

Suffice it to say the Canadiens were relieved to see their best player back on the ice with them.

"He's such a big part of our team, when he's out there the guys get a boost," Canadiens forward Dale Weise said. "He's probably our biggest leader in this locker room; everyone just gets excited when you see him out there."

It is not yet known when Price, who has missed the past eight games with a lower-body injury, will be ready to play, but it won't be Thursday at home against the Arizona Coyotes.

Coach Michel Therrien said Mike Condon will start against the Coyotes. The Canadiens then play Friday at the New York Islanders and Sunday at home to the Islanders. It is not clear if Price would be available for any of those games.

Johnson and Paquette have upper-body injuries; the injury to Drouin was undisclosed.

Capitals reunite Ovechkin, Backstrom at practice

Monday, 11.16.2015 / 4:22 PM / News

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer

Washington Capitals left wing Alex Ovechkin might have a familiar center riding shotgun with him when he gets his next chance at scoring his record-breaking goal.

Capitals coach Barry Trotz reunited Washington's captain and leading scorer with Nicklas Backstrom for practice Monday, but offered no guarantees they would play together against the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena on Wednesday (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TVA Sports), when Ovechkin will again try to break Sergei Fedorov's record for the most goals scored in the NHL by a Russian player.

Ovechkin is currently tied with Fedorov with 483 goals. He has played all season with Evgeny Kuznetsov as his center, but he hasn't scored in three straight games and has only five shots on goal in the past two after getting 15 shots against the Red Wings last Tuesday.

"I don't even know if that's how we will be, I just wanted to change it up, change the thought process a little bit," Trotz told the Capitals website after practice Monday. "I think we can be better in some areas. I haven't put [Backstrom], Osh [T.J. Oshie] and Ovi together to see how that looks."
