Canadiens' Price delays return from injury

Carey Price needs some more time.

The Montreal Canadiens goaltender is staying off the ice for a few days as his recovery from a lower-body injury has stagnated, according to TSN's John Lu.

He resumed skating last week and insists he'll soon be back in game action. Last week, coach Claude Julien made it clear it's not the same injury - an MCL sprain - that saw Price miss all but 12 games of the 2015-16 season.

On Tuesday, Price indicated the injury occurred in the pregame warmup prior to a Nov. 2 game against the Minnesota Wild. He played the entire game, allowing five goals on 26 shots, and hasn't appeared in the crease since.

Price originally anticipated he'd be back for Thursday's contest against the Arizona Coyotes, but his return date has been pushed back.

In his absence, the Canadiens have turned to 23-year-old Charlie Lindgren, who has posted a 3-1-0 record and .964 save percentage through four games.
