Mon­treal Cana­di­ens goal­tender Carey Price says he is stay­ing off the ice for a lit­tle while longer as he deals with a lower­body in­jury.

Price met with re­porters Tues­day be­fore Mon­treal’s game against the vis­it­ing Colum­bus Blue Jack­ets to pro­vide an up­date on his re­cov­ery.

He said he suf­fered the in­jury in a warmup be­fore Mon­treal’s Nov. 2 game at Min­nesota in which he gave up five goals on 26 shots in a 6-3 loss.

“When you’re warmed up and you’re run­ning on a bit of adrenalin, you don’t ever feel it’s as bad un­til you wake up the next day and ev­ery­thing’s cooled down and you’re not feel­ing the adrenalin any more,” he said.

Price, 30, in­sisted the in­jury is mi­nor and that he would “ab­so­lutely” be ready to play if the Cana­di­ens were in the play­offs.

“It’s just tak­ing a lit­tle bit longer than ex­pected be­cause of the na­ture of my po­si­tion,” Price said. “I just want to make sure I’m 100 per cent.”
