Carey Price to miss more games while he recovers from injury

Price insisted Tuesday that the injury is minor and that he would "absolutely" be ready to play if the Canadiens were in the playoffs.

Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price said he is staying off the ice for a little while longer as he deals with a lower-body injury. He allowed five goals on 26 shots in that game and was ruled out for the team's next game a day later.

The 30-year-old said he had expected to return within a two-week frame of the injury, but he hasn't been progressing as hoped.

He posted a 3-7-1 record to start the season with an.877 save percentage and a 3.77 goals against average.

Price played that game but since then has been replaced by Charlie Lindgren and Al Montoya - who has since suffered a concussion.

The Canadiens have one three games and lost once with Lindgren in nets.
