MVP Price out six more weeks

MONTREAL — The Canadiens have already had to deal with a nine-game stretch without star goaltender Carey Price so far this season. Now they'll have to get by without him for much longer.

The Canadiens said Monday that Price will miss at least six weeks with a lower-body injury sustained during a 5-1 win over the Rangers last week in New York. He will not need surgery. Last season's Hart and Vezina Trophy winner is expected to miss at least 16 games

Rangers: Coach Alain Vigneault said center Derek Stepan will miss four to six weeks because of broken ribs.

Game highlights: Mats Zuccarello and Oscar Lindberg scored first-period power-play goals as the host Rangers beat Carolina 4-3, improving to 18-1-0 in their past 19 meetings with the Hurricanes.

  1. Jordan Spieth wins British Open (w/ video)

    Golf

    SOUTHPORT, England — Someday, perhaps soon, there will be a plaque at Royal Birkdale for Jordan Spieth, much like the one off the 16th hole that celebrates Arnold Palmer and the 6-iron he slashed out of the rough in 1961 to win the British Open and usher in a new era of golf.

    Matt Kuchar plays out of the bunker on the 18th hole and finishes with bogey for 1-under 69. He had a one-shot lead after 13 holes.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Well, that was lovely.

    Brad Boxberger suffers his second loss in the three-game series, this time by allowing back-to-back homers in the eighth inning when called on to protect a 5-3 lead. “Just bad pitches,” he says.

    Lightning Strikes

    WESLEY CHAPEL — As a 17-year-old Triple-A hockey player, MacCallum Brown regularly plays against elite talent. As a Palm Harbor resident, he often has to travel to face that talent.

  4. Rays journal: Rays gamble on Sergio Romo's track record, heart

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Some of RHP Sergio Romo's numbers this season with the Dodgers were the worst of his career, yet the Rays feel he can be a good fit for their bullpen.

  5. Rays claim not to be panicking after third straight brutal loss to Rangers (w/ video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — There was no "here we go again" moment in the dugout as Rougned Odor's two-run homer in the eighth inning arced across Tropicana Field and toward the rightfield seats, even though when it landed, the score was tied and another late-inning Rays lead was blown.

    Rays third baseman Evan Longoria heads back to the dugout after fouling out in the ninth inning with the potential tying run on first.
