The Montreal Canadiens will be without their star goalie for at least a little while longer.

Carey Price‘s rehab is going well, but he is not ready to get back on the ice just yet,” Habs coach Michel Therrien told reporters this morning.

Price has not played since Nov. 25 when he suffered what the club has only called a lower-body injury. He was expected to miss a minimum of six weeks, so it’s not like he was supposed to be back by now.

The Canadiens — who went 3-11-0 in December — got a much-needed solid performance from backup Mike Condon in the Winter Classic on New Year’s Day.

However, it’ll be Ben Scrivens who starts Tuesday in Philadelphia (on NBCSN).

The Canadiens also play Wednesday at home versus New Jersey. Condon is expected to start that one.
