Injury Update: CAREY PRICE IS SIDELINED FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE SEASON
Today in Montreal, RDS doctor David Mulder announced that Carey Price will miss the remainder of the season with a Concussion. Price has a 26-28-11 record in 65 games in a season where the Habs sit 15th in the East and 28th overall. Price apparently suffered his concussion some time last week. Price went ahead and played Friday nights game against the Rangers injured. That explains they 2 soft goals that Price gave up in that 4-1 loss. In other injury news, both Tomas Kaberle (Lower Body) and Travis Moen (Upper Body) are day-to-day and they both have potential to play in Wednesday nights game against the Lightning.“I’m still waiting to see, but the plan is to get in at least a game or a couple of games before the season’s over,” stated Travis Moen. “I’m feeling better so it’s just day-to-day at this point and I’m just waiting to get the okay from the doctors and get back in. It’s never easy to miss games and sit on the side and watch the team play so it will be good to get back in and try to help the team."
Kaberle also spoke about his possible return. “I hope I’ll be able to play. We’ll have to see how it goes over the next couple of days and I still have to talk to the doctors, but we’ll see again on Wednesday morning,” explained Kaberle, currently nursing an upper-body injury of his own. “I would have liked to play over the weekend, but sometimes plans like that just don’t work out. It was the coaches and the doctors’ decision. I haven’t been cleared to play in a game yet, but at least I’m cleared to practice.” Matthieu Darche expects to return from his upper-body injury sometime this week. As for Captain Brian Gionta, he will remain out with his bicep injury for the last 3 games.
