Add Carey Price to the list of Olympic casualties.

The all-tournament goaltender suffered a lower-body injury while leading Team Canada to gold in Sochi but was expected to be ready to go for the Canadiens on Wednesday night against the Red Wings and coach Mike Babcock. Plans changed though when Price came up limping after facing his first shot in practice on Wednesday morning.

Montreal coach Michel Therrien said that Price is expected to miss at least two games, which means he'll be out on Thursday for the match against the Penguins and Team Canada mate Sidney Crosby.

The Habs have recalled goalie Dustin Tokarski to backup Peter Budaj.
