Injured Canadiens G Price, D Subban are done for the season
MONTREAL (AP) Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price and defenseman P.K. Subban will not play in the final two games of the season.
The club said Wednesday that Price has been out with a medial collateral ligament sprain in his right knee suffered Nov. 25 against the New York Rangers. Team Dr. Vincent Lacroix said Price was close to returning but wasn't yet cleared.
General manager Marc Bergevin, Lacroix and head orthopedic surgeon Paul Martineau decided Tuesday night to shut Price down. Lacroix said Price, who won the Hart and Vezina Trophies last season, is expected to make a full recovery without surgery.
Subban, Montreal's top defenseman, has been out since suffering a neck injury March 10 against Buffalo.
