The Montreal Canadiens’ hopes of making it to their first Stanley Cup Final since 1993 have taken a huge blow. Goalie Carey Price will miss the rest of the Eastern Conference Final versus the New York Rangers, who already lead the series 1-0.

Therrien would not say who would start in goal tonight in Game 2 at the Bell Centre. His options are Peter Budaj and Dustin Tokarski, neither of whom are as effective as Price, nor have the big-game experience.

Here’s the play on which Price was injured:
