Carey Price takes shot to his nether regions during warmups

The Canadiens netminder left warmups but returned for the first period against the Bruins.

Carey Price is a veteran NHL goaltender, so it's safe to say he knows how to be mentally prepared for intense, physical battles against the Boston Bruins. This isn't his first merry-go-round.

But his teammate Lars Eller made sure Price was wide awake for Wednesday night's festivities with some painful friendly fire.

During warmups, Eller came down the middle of the ice and fired off a wicked wrister towards Price's five-hole. The goalie stopped the shot with his family jewels. You might even say he stoned Eller on the shot.

After laying on the ice in obvious discomfort, Price left warmups and headed to the dressing room. We're going to go ahead and guess that his outburst while walking off was out of pain and not anger. Price was evidently okay after the injury, as he returned to the ice for the first period, stopping all five shots he faced.

Look, playing goaltender is a rough job on any night. Let's not make it any harder on your own teammate, Lars.
