There is one very simple reason why the Montreal Canadiens were able to beat the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday night: Carey Price

Now it looks like the Habs may be without their star goaltender for tomorrow's game against the Vancouver Canucks, as he was not on the ice this morning because of the flu.

The team confirmed the news on its Twitter account:

Sportsnet's Eric Engels mentioned he played sick against Tampa, two days ago. Just imagine what he can do when he's fully healthy!

The Habs are currently ranked 27th in the NHL, and have a record of 17-20-4.
