MVP Price out six more weeks

RECOMMENDED READING


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.
