BROSSARD, Que. - Injured Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price took a light skate before the team's optional practice on Monday.
The Canadian Olympic team gold medallist has been out with a suspected right knee injury since the second period of Game 1 of the NHL Eastern Conference final.
Price skated for about 20 minutes, without his goaltending equipment, well ahead of the team's optional practice.
He is not expected back until at least the start of the Stanley Cup final.
The Canadiens trail New York 3-1 in the best-of-seven conference final and will attempt to stave off elimination when they play host to the Rangers on Tuesday night.
