Add Carey Price to the list of Olympic casualties.

The all-tournament goaltender suffered a lower-body injury while leading Team Canada to gold in Sochi but was expected to be ready to go for the Canadiens on Wednesday night against the Red Wings and coach Mike Babcock. Plans changed though when Price came up limping after facing his first shot in practice on Wednesday morning.

    If the Canadiens are going to stage a comeback in their series against the Ottawa Senators, they’ll have to do it without No. 1 goalie.

    In lousy news for Montreal’s fans and ticket scalpers alike, the team announced this morning that Price is out for the duration of the first round.

    Although there were no further details, it appeared that he suffered a lower body injury while making the final save of regulation in Tuesday’s Game 4 loss. Peter Budaj, who came in and allowed the winning goal to Kyle Turris in overtime, will step between the pipes in tonight’s must-win contest. The Habs trail the series 3-1, and will also be playing without captain Brian Gionta (torn bicep) and forwards Brandon Prust (upper body), Ryan White (upper body) and Lars Eller (concussion).
