The Montreal Canadiens will be without their star goalie, hopefully for just another week.
According to Habs head coach Dominique Ducharme, Price will be unavailable for a week due to concussion protocols.
Dominique Ducharme affirme que Carey Price ne sera pas disponible pour une semaine. Il se soumet actuellement au protocole des commotions cérébrales.

Price left Monday’s game after the first period, following a collision with Edmonton Oilers forward Alex Chiasson.

Price had recently returned to the Habs net after missing six games with a lower-body injury. The 33-year-old has a 12-7-5 record with a 2.64 goals-against average and a .901 save percentage this season.
Montreal currently sits in fourth place in the North Division, with a six-point lead over the fifth-place Calgary Flames, who have played two more games. They’re also 10 points up on the Canucks, but Vancouver has five games in hand.
