The bad news continues for Montreal's Carey Price.

Not the start Montreal was hoping for.

The Montreal Canadiens were hopeful that they would have Carey Price back in their line up to start the season, after all he had a strong performance at the World Cup of Hockey, but that has not been the case.

After missing the season opener with what has been labelled as mere illness, it now appears that Price is once again out of the line up for the Habs upcoming contest against the Ottawa Senators, presumably again with the same illness.

The Habs haven't officially ruled him out just yet, but a report from Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports has indicated this is in fact the case, and Lavoie is rarely if ever wrong.
