Canadiens goalie Price to miss at least one game with "minor" lower body injury

WINNIPEG — Goaltender Carey Price has a "minor" lower body injury and will not play Saturday night against the Jets in Winnipeg, the Montreal Canadiens announced.

Back-up Al Montoya is to make his third start of the season, while Charlie Lindgren was called up from the AHL Laval Rocket.

Price did not practice with his teammates on Friday. There was no word on how long he will be out of action.

The 30-year-old goaltender has had a difficult start to the season with a 3-7-1 record, a goals-against average of 3.77 and a .877 save percentage. He allowed five goals on 26 shots in a 6-3 loss in Minnesota on Thursday night.
