Price takes one for the team

The following is from Pat Hickey’s Standing Pat column in today’s Montreal Gazette:
There was a scary moment at the Canadiens’ practice yesterday when captain Saku Koivu unleashed a harmless looking wrist shot and caught goaltender Carey Price square on the collarbone.

Price slumped to the ice, gingerly made his way to the bench and showed some rare emotion as he banged a water bottle against the boards.

“It hurt,” he said, “but that’s part of being a goaltender.” Price had a large bruise over the collarbone, but rejoined the workout after a brief rest.
