Carey Price to miss 3 road games while nursing lower-body injury

MONTREAL -- Montreal goalie Carey Price will miss the Canadiens' three-game trip because of a lower-body injury.

The Canadiens said Thursday that Price will not travel to Florida. The Canadiens play the Panthers on Friday night, are at NHL-leading Tampa Bay on Saturday night, and at Dallas on Monday night.

Price is 15-10-4 with a 2.84 goals-against average in 30 games this season.

The Canadiens will likely look to Antti Niemi on the trip. He's 4-3-1 with a 4.14 GAA.
