Afterward, the Canadiens announced Price would travel with the team to New York later in the day for a medical appointment concerning the knee he had an operation on last July to repair a torn meniscus.
The Canadiens say Price remains listed as “day-to-day.”
The Canadiens have two games remaining in the regular season, playing the Rangers Wednesday night in New York and the Florida Panthers Friday night at the Bell Centre.
Price has only played four games this season, posting an 0-4-0 record with a 4.04 goals-against average and a .853 save percentage.
Price’s knee operation was performed in New York at the Hospital for Special Surgery by Robert Marx, after consultation with his colleague Bryan Kelly, regarding hip and knee injuries. The hip injury did not require surgery.
