Canadiens' Price out hurt again

MONTREAL — Canadiens goaltender Carey Price is expected to be out at least a week after aggravating the lower-body injury that caused him to already miss nine games this season.

Price, the reigning league MVP, appeared to injure a leg when trying to move across the crease in the second period of a 5-1 victory over the Rangers on Wednesday. Price finished the period, then was replaced by Mike Condon for the third.

Price was in his third game since returning from the original injury. Condon made all nine starts during Price's absence and posted a 5-2-2 record.

The Canadiens recalled goaltender Dustin Tokarski from AHL St. John's.

Around the league: Oilers forward Nail Yakupov is expected to miss two to four weeks after spraining his left ankle when he got tangled up with an official against the Hurricanes on Wednesday. Yakupov was knocked down when linesman Matt MacPherson lost his balance, fell backward and grabbed Yakupov's shoulder after a faceoff in the second period. Yakupov had to be helped off the ice.

    It turns out Caleb Brantley isn't quite the dirtbag that millions of people presumed. It's too bad the damage to his reputation and bank account is already done.

    ST. PETERSBURG — As pleased as the Rays were to win consecutive series against the contending Red Sox, Indians and Yankees and to get briefly back over .500, there was a lot of talk in the clubhouse before Monday's game against the Angels that it was time to do better.

    OF/DH Corey Dickerson missed out on a good birthday gift when AL player of the week honors went instead to Detroit's J.D. Martinez. Dickerson hit .385 with five homers, nine RBIs and nine runs; Martinez went .389-4-9-7 and got the nod.

  4. Rays journal: Alex Cobb learning to work with what he has

    ST. PETERSBURG

    If this were 2012 or 2013, even 2014, RHP Alex Cobb would have problems. He would find himself working with only two of his three pitches, with the missing pitch being his trusty changeup.

    Alex Cobb, working mainly with his fastball and curveball, is 3-1 with a 2.78 ERA over his past five starts. The Rays right-hander tries to continue his strong stretch tonight against the Angels.
