Price had to politely excuse himself from post game interviews at the Air Canada Centre saying simply, “I’m bleeding all over the place.”
It’s suspected that Price ran afoul of a discarded skate.
As a precautionary measure, Price did not take part in the Bell Centre Fans Open Practice Sunday although he made an appearance for an on-ice interview.
The Canadiens won’t practice again until Tuesday. It’s obviously hoped Price will be available. The team’s next game will be Wednesday when they complete their pre-All-Star game schedule against the Detroit Red Wings at the Bell Centre.
….For the record – The Canadiens held their practice in front of an estimated crowd of 18-thousand, made up mostly of kids and their parents. In target shooting, Andrei Kostitsyn, Mathieu Darche and Tomas Kaberle all took out four targets in six shots. Kaberle won it on time; 13.8 seconds to 16 seconds for the others. Lars Eller was the fastest skater ahead of David Desharnais. P.K. Subban and Yannick Weber were 1-2 in hardest shot, 151 km/hr to 147. Raphael Diaz was third at 135.
