BROSSARD, Que. — Carey Price was back at Montreal Canadiens practice for the first time since suffering a concussion in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on Feb. 20.

It was after completing the game in Philadelphia, making 30 saves, that the 30-year-old goaltender was diagnosed with a concussion. He resumed practising on his own last weekend.

Price, whose eight-year, $84-million contract kicks in next season, has appeared in 43 games this season — posting a 15-22-6 record, a .904 save percentage and a 2.98 goals-against average. He will not be available to face the Pittsburgh Penguins at the Bell Centre Thursday.

The Canadiens have gone 4-3-4 in Price’s recent absence.
