According to the TEAM990 radio station in Montreal, Andrei Markov and Carey Price clashed in the dressing room following a 4-3 loss to St. Louis last Wednesday.
The report says Markov told the 22-year-old: “If you are not going to play with heart, stay home. We don’t need you here.” Some players supported Markov and some supported Price.
Price has an 11-16-4 record to go along with a 2.73 GAA and .913 SP. He is battling for the No. 1 job with Jaroslav Halak who has started 12 of the past 20 games. Both goalies are restricted free agents at the end of the season.
