From Blueshirt Banter:
After a collision with Chris Kreider during Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Montreal head coach Michel Therrien announced today Carey Price will miss the rest of the series against the Rangers, according to multiple reports today from the Bell Centre.
Price remained in the game after the play occurred early in the second period. Peter Budaj then took over in goal at the start of the third, and Therrien said after the game he was trying to "protect Price," while never outright saying there was an injury or not.
But the news got much bleaker today, as Therrien told reporters during his media availability Price would be unavailable for the rest of the series.
Let's be serious, the Canadiens werent going to win the series anyway. The Rangers absolutely kicked their ass in Game 1 and that was before Carey Price suffered the "injury."
The Canadiens were screwed long before this announcement was made. This just seals the deal. What's sad is that even though they only won two rounds this year, they will probably still consider this season a success because they knocked off the Bruins.
