Price was involved in an incident early in the second period of the opening game of the series when New York Rangers forward Chris Kreider crashed into the goalie. Price did not take part in a team practice yesterday morning and has now been ruled out for the rest of the series.
According to the Canadiens' twitter account, coach Michael Therrien said:"Carey Price will not be available tonight, nor for the rest of that series."
It is not clear whether Price will be able to return for the Stanley Cup finals, should Montreal qualify.
The Rangers took the first game after Price's injury and now will be heavy favorites to represent the east in the finals.
Therrien responded to the play on which Price got hurt, saying: "Looking at the incident, it's a reckless play. That's the truth."
