Montreal goalie to fans: relax

MONTREAL — Carey Price has a message for Canadiens fans.

"Relax, chill out," the goalie said Thursday. "We've got lots of time. We're not winning the Stanley Cup in the first exhibition game."

Price was booed at the Bell Centre on Wednesday as he allowed four goals on nine shots in a 4-2 loss to the Bruins. Fans also gave mock cheers when he stopped a shot and a long ovation when he was replaced, as planned, by Curtis Sanford midway through the second period. Many fans are upset that in the offseason the Canadiens traded Jaroslav Halak, who led them to the Eastern Conference final last season.

"I don't know what (the fans') message was, but I don't think it's the correct way to go about things," Price said.

Red Wings: Forward Johan Franzen is expected to miss at least three preseason games with a thigh injury. He was hurt in a collision with Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik in Wednesday's preseason opener for both teams. Orpik was given a major penalty for kneeing Franzen, who left the game. Franzen called the hit possibly "the stupidest play I've ever seen" and wants the league to suspend Orpik.

preseason games: Marian Gaborik scored his second goal at 3:12 of overtime and the host Rangers opened with a 4-3 win over the Devils. New Jersey got its goals from each member of its new top line: Ilya Kovalchuk, Travis Zajac and Zach Parise. … Colby Armstrong scored the tying goal and got the winner in the 11th round of a shootout as the Maple Leafs beat the Flyers 3-2 in London, Ontario.
