New York Rangers forward Chris Kreider slams feet-first into Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price

(VIDEO) Canadiens need to Carey on without Anahim Lake’s Price

Price was injured in Game 1 after he was slammed into by New York Rangers forward Chris Kreider, and is out for the series...

The Montreal Canadiens are without their best player – Carey Price – and now down 0-2 in their best-of-seven series against the New York Rangers, in the 2014 Eastern Conference Final.

So, it’s not going so well. But the Habs can still turn it around, starting on Wednesday night in Manhattan’s Madison Square Garden.

Price was knocked out of the series in Game 1, when Rangers forward Chris Kreider slammed into him feet-first and jammed the goalie’s knee.

Prior to Game 2 – which Montreal lost 3-1 on home ice – Canadiens coach Michel Therrien called the Kreider play a “reckless” play, and he noted the forward’s history of hitting goalies.

(In New York’s last series, Kreider ran through Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, as well. He also slammed into Ottawa goalie Craig Anderson in 2013, and a website called ‘Chris Kreider’s Goalie Victims’ is up on HockeyTube.net.)

Therrien also noted that the Habs now have the responsibility to get Price back in their lineup, which they can do by beating the Rangers and moving on to the Stanley Cup Final.
