Senators vs Canadiens Game 5 PreGame May 9

The morning opened with some interesting news – the Canadiens announced that goaltender Carey Price would not be returning to the series due to a lower body injury.  That means Peter Budaj gets the start tonight against the Senators, with Robert Mayer serving as his backup.  Price joins Lars Eller, Brian Gionta, Brandon Prust & Ryan White on the sidelines.  Mike Blunden will play in place of Prust.

Eller did skate this morning with coaches, sporting a full-face shield.

As for the Senators, the majority of the team took the morning skate with the exceptions being Erik Karlsson, Milan Michalek & Coach Paul MacLean.  Afterwards, Coach MacLean confirmed that there would be no changes to the lineup this evening.
