Mon­treal Cana­di­ens head coach Michel Ther­rien doesn’t ex­pect star goal­tender Carey Price to re­turn be­fore early Fe­bru­ary at the ear­li­est. For the se­cond time in less than a week, Ther­rien of­fered re­porters an up­date on Price’s sta­tus. While this one was more pre­cise, it was also far less en­cour­ag­ing. “It would sur­prise us if he was back be­fore the all-star game,”Ther­rien said fol­low­ing Fri­day’s prac­tice. “We said it would be a min­i­mum of six weeks – a long-term ab­sence. And when it’s a ques­tion of longterm in­jury, it’s dif­fi­cult to say whether the re­turn will take place on such a day. We have to fol­low the re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion process and they tell me it’s go­ing well.”
