TAMPA, Fla. — Star Montreal goaltender Carey Price practised with the team before the Canadiens' game tonight game at Tampa Bay.
It's the first time Price has participated in a full practice since suffering a lower-body injury on Nov. 25.
Canadiens coach Michel Therrien said he's hopeful that Price plays in a game before the season ends, but would not provide a timetable for the goaltender's return.
Montreal, which did not qualify for the playoffs, has five games left in the regular season.
Price won the Hart Trophy last season as the N-H-L's most valuable player and was off to a terrific start this season before the injury.
