It seems the the Montreal Canadiens have been plagued with injuries this post-season. The first piece of disappointing news for the Canadiens is that they will have to go the rest of the season without their captain Brian Gionta. Gionta will be undergoing surgery on Friday for a torn left bicep that will keep him off the ice for the little time that is left in the Canadiens season.
On top of Gionta being out two players left Tuesday night’s game due to injury. One of these players was the Canadiens number 1 goaltender Carey Price. Price is said to be day-to-day with a lower-body injury. It is still unclear at this point as to whether or not he will be playing in Thursday night’s game against the Ottawa Senators.
The other player that left Tuesday’s game was Brandon Prust. He will definitely be out of Thursday’s game due to an aggravated shoulder injury. Also missing from Thursday’s game will be Ryan White who also sat out of Tuesday’s game because of an upper-body injury caused in the second period of Sunday’s game. It is still unclear as to whether Prust or White will be missing more than just Thursday’s game.
