Price went on the ice with goaltending coach Stephane Waite for about five minutes, mostly moving side to side in the crease. Then they left the ice. Coach Michel Therrien could not confirm that Price will be able to play in Game 2 of the best-of-seven series on Monday night at the Bell Centre. He said they would know on Monday if he can play. "Today was an optional practice," said Therrien. "It was a therapy day for Carey. Well see if hes able to play." Price was hurt at 3:15 of the second period of a 7-2 loss to New York in the series opener on Saturday when Rangers forward Chris Kreider crashed into him skates-first after missing the net on a breakaway. Price lay onn the ice for a while and appeared to injure his right knee, but got up and stayed in the game.dddddddddddd After giving up two goals late in the period, he was replaced by backup Peter Budaj for the third frame. Forward Brandon Prust said Kreider ran into Price "accidentally on purpose." Therrien agreed. "I reviewed the incident," he said. "Obviously, it was an accidental contact, but lets put it this way, he didnt make much effort to avoid the contact. "Im sure the intention of the player was not to hit the goalie, but you have to try to do everything in your power to avoid contact and its tough to say if he tried everything to avoid that contact." Prices place was taken by third-string goalie Dustin Tokarski for the practice. Forwards Tomas Plekanec and Lars Eller and defencemen P.K. Subban and Josh Gorges opted not to skate. ' ' '
