Canadiens say timeline for Carey Price’s injury unknown

Damien Cox and Elliotte Friedman discuss Brandon Dubinsky’s suspension, the decline in fighting, and when we could see Carey Price in goal for the Montreal Canadiens.

Although there are rumours swirling that Carey Price could be out for the next month, the Montreal Canadiens insist they don’t have a timeline for how much time Price might miss.

According to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman, Price’s lower-body injury issues began Oct. 29 in Edmonton prior to a game against the Oilers when Price stepped on a puck during warm-ups. Price allowed four goals in a loss that night and didn’t suit up again until Nov. 20.

After winning back-to-back games against the New York Islanders, Price, who met with doctors Saturday left Wednesday’s game against the Rangers after the second period and the team subsequently placed him on the injured list.

The reigning Hart and Vezina winner is 10-2-0 this season with a .934 save percentage, 2.06 goals-against average and two shutouts. Rookie Mike Condon has filled in for Price in his absence.
