Price was greeted with a salute from his Canadiens teammates.
Mike Condon has performed admirably in Price’s absence, starting eight consecutive games, but the 25-year-old rookie has allowed seven goals on his last 37 shots faced.
Canadiens head coach Michel Therrien did not have a timetable for Price’s return to game action when asked earlier this week.
“He’s progressing, we’re glad,” said Therrien. “But this is too early to talk about a comeback. The good news is that he’s progressing well.”
Price has been outstanding in nine starts this season, registering a .936 save percentage and a 2.01 goals-against average.
The Canadiens’ next game is Thursday at the Bell Centre versus the Arizona Coyotes.
