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.

    There is a reason why the air in Tampa Bay is filled with playoff talk. If Thursday night's 12-8 Bucs preseason win over the Jaguars is any indication, it's also going to be filled with footballs thrown by quarterback Jameis Winston.
