The Montreal Canadiens will be waiting a bit longer for their No. 1 goaltender to return, as head coach Michel Therrien told reporters that Carey Price will not be in the lineup when the Habs host the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night.

Therrien added that Price will travel with the team for its four-game Western road trip that begins Monday in Los Angeles, but will not be in the lineup until he's 100 per cent recovered.

"He's doing better so that's a good sign," Therrien said after the team's practice in Brossard on Friday.

Peter Budaj is expected to start on Saturday against the Leafs, with Dustin Tokarski as the backup.

Price was hurt at the start of Wednesday's practice after facing just one shot as the team worked on its power play. He left the ice in discomfort and appeared to be favouring his leg. A team source told TSN's John Lu that Price suffered the injury in Sochi and not before the Winter Olympics.
