Carey Price to miss 3rd straight game
Carey Price aggravated a lower-body injury sustained at the Sochi Olympics, where he went 5-0 and helped lead Team Canada to the gold medal.
Price will accompany the team when it leaves Sunday on a four-game trip to Los Angeles, Anaheim, Phoenix and San Jose.
"With the treatments he's getting, we're confident he will be back fairly soon," coach Michel Therrien said.
Budaj was in goal for a 2-1 overtime loss to Detroit in Montreal's first post-Olympics game Wednesday, and he started again in a 6-5 shootout win at Pittsburgh the following night.
