The Latest On Carey Price

via the CP at the Globe and Mail,

Goaltender Carey Price tested a suspected knee injury briefly ahead of an optional practice on Sunday, but his fitness for Game 2 of the NHL Eastern Conference final remains in doubt.

Price went on the ice with goaltending coach Stephane Waite for about five minutes, mostly moving side to side in the crease. Then they left the ice.

There was no immediate word on his condition from the team.

Price was hurt at 3:15 of the second period of a 7-2 loss to New York in the series opener on Saturday when Rangers forward Chris Kreider crashed into him skates-first after missing the net on a breakaway.

Price lay on the ice for a while and appeared to injure his right knee, but got up and stayed in the game.

After giving up two goals late in the period, he was replaced by backup Peter Budaj for the third frame.

If you missed the incident in the game yesterday, you can watch it here...

Therrien and a few players do say it was an accident but Kreider could have done more to avoid Price.

...but Kreider could have done more to avoid Price.

Other than stopping time or defying laws of physics, I don’t know what else he could have done.
