Injured Montreal G Price skates in full equipment

BROSSARD, Quebec (AP) — Injured Canadiens goaltender Carey Price has skated for a second straight day — this time in full equipment.

Price was on the ice for about 30 minutes with goaltending coach Stephane Waite and a trainer Tuesday. He took some soft shots and left well before the rest of the team went on the ice for their game-day skate.

Price had skated in warm-ups for about five minutes Monday. Coach Michel Therrien said it was part of his injury rehab.

Price appeared to hurt his right knee in the second period of Game 1 of the NHL Eastern Conference final when New York forward Chris Kreider crashed into him. Price finished the period but has not played since. Dustin Tokarski has started the last four games.

Price is not expected to play in Game 5 on Tuesday night, but working out in the net raises the possibility he could return if Montreal manages to extend the series. The Rangers lead 3-1.
