May 19 (Bloomberg) -- Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price will miss the rest of the team’s National Hockey League playoff series against the New York Rangers.

Price, 26, has a “lower body” injury, team spokesman Donald Beauchamp said today in an e-mail without providing specifics. The goaltender injured his right knee in the team’s Game 1 loss two days ago during a collision with Rangers forward Chris Kreider and skated only five minutes with the team yesterday, according to the Toronto Sun.

Price started all 12 of Montreal’s playoff games this year, allowing 2.35 goals per game with a save percentage of .919. His backup Peter Budaj started 21 games in the regular season with a 2.51 GAA and .909 save percentage.

“We’ve lost our best player, but we’ve faced adversity this year already,” Canadiens coach Michel Therrien told reporters today.

Budaj, 31, was a former starter with the Colorado Avalanche. He’s allowed 17 goals in parts of seven career postseason games, with no official wins and two losses.

The Rangers won the opening game of the Eastern Conference semifinals 7-2 in Montreal. Game 2 is at the Bell Centre tonight.
