Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price could return to practice Friday.

"It’s possible," said Canadiens coach Claude Julien on Thursday. "I haven’t spoken to our medical staff yet, but it’s possible. He’s day-to-day."

It was after Price completed a 6-3 loss to the Minnesota Wild last Thursday that Julien announced he had a minor lower-body injury. Price skated for the first time since suffering the injury on Wednesday, donning full equipment for a short workout with one of the team’s strength and conditioning coaches.
