“Pleky reached out to me,” Price said after practice Monday in Brossard. “Said he was happy to see me out there and I said thank you and called him something we call each other.”
Price then flashed a smile that has rarely been seen in the past when he was dealing with the media.
After Friday’s 3-0 loss to the New York Islanders, Price also received a text from Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby, who was his teammate when they won a gold medal with Team Canada at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi.
“Sid reached out to me, too, and said it’s good to see you out there again,” Price said. “So I was pleasantly surprised — not really surprised. But happy to see a text from him.”
Canadiens fans showed how happy they were to see Price back in goal last Friday, stopping 17 of the 19 shots he faced (the third goal was an empty-netter) in his first game since having knee surgery last July to repair a torn meniscus, followed in October by a 30-day stay in the NHL/NHLPA player assistance program to deal with substance-use issues.
