Carey Price has a lower-body injury and will not travel with the Montreal Canadiens for the start of their three-game road trip, which begins at the Florida Panthers on Friday (7 p.m. ET; FS-F, TSN2, RDS, NHL.TV).
The 31-year-old goalie made 23 saves in the Canadiens' 4-3 overtime win against the Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday, their final game before the Christmas break.
Montreal's road trip continues at the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday and at the Dallas Stars on Monday; Price was placed on injured reserve on Thursday, retroactive to Dec. 22, which means he could rejoin the Canadiens and play against the Stars if he's healthy enough.
Coach Claude Julien said he's unsure if Price will be able to return by Monday.
