The Canadiens just released a statement that Carey Price will be out a least a week. Similar to their announcement when Price was first injured a few weeks ago, they aren't saying much more, and their timeline of Price's return is open for interpretation.
Tel que prévu, Price et Semin ne sont pas sur la glace ce matin. / As expected, Price and Semin are not on the ice for practice. #GoHabsGo— Canadiens Montréal (@CanadiensMTL) November 26, 2015
Michel Therrien was stoic in regards to the injury:
"We don't know how long Carey will be out but for us it's business as usual. We're focusing on tomorrow's game."-M.Therrien— Canadiens Montréal (@CanadiensMTL) November 26, 2015
The Habs have back-to-back games against the Devils Friday and Saturday, and don't play again until Tuesday at home against the Blue Jackets. It's possible we'll see Dustin Tokarski start Saturday at home against the Devils, if not, Mike Condon will be forced to start his first career back-to-back.
It was just announced that Alexander Semin was also placed on IR, and will also be out a week:

In other news, Bud Holloway will be given his first opportunity in the Canadiens lineup, as Michel Therrien told the recent St. John's call-up to be ready to play Friday in New Jersey:
