Canadiens' Price set to return

Montreal, QC (SportsNetwork.com) - Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price is set to return Tuesday against Nashville after sitting out the past two games because of a minor upper body injury.

Canadiens coach Michel Therrien on Saturday said the injury occurred last Wednesday in a game against Columbus. Price then missed Thursday's game against Ottawa before also sitting out Saturday against the New York Islanders.

Dustin Tokarski started both games in Price's absence.

Price, selected to play in this weekend's All-Star Game, has a record of 23-10-2 with a 2.19 goals-against average and a .927 save percentage in 35 games entering Tuesday's contest.
