Canadiens vs. Senators Game 2 update: Carey Price has no need for this tooth

Take a ninja kick from your teammate? No problem.

Carey Price has rebounded from a poor Game 1 in the Montreal Canadiens' playoff series with the Ottawa Senators.

He has stopped 20 shots through two periods and is generally back in form.

He also stopped his own teammate's kick to the face, though he lost some teeth in the exchange. What do you do when someone kicks your teeth out with a hockey skate?

Why, you take them to the bench and hand them to the trainer, of course:


No sweat. NHL fans approve:

Price's counterpart at the other end, Senators goalie Craig Anderson, also lost a tooth after a shot -- by a puck this time -- to the mask in Game 1. This ... this is hockey.

After a physical, but scoreless first period, the teams found the net in the second period. Montreal scored twice in the first 4:13 and are opening up a 3-1 lead going into the second intermission.

Ryan White, Brendan Gallagher and Michael Ryder scored for the Habs. Chris Phillips got the lone Senators goal.

After dropping Game 1 at home, the Canadiens need this one. They have a two-goal cushion to get it done.
