Carey Price turned aside 23 of 25 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the St. Louis Blues.
Price didn't play in either of Montreal's previous two games because he was dealing with flu-like symptoms, but he didn't look rusty tonight. Both of the Blues' goals came on the power play. Price was screened on Vince Dunn's tally, while he never had a chance on Brayden Schenn's goal in the third frame. The Canadiens ended up winning on a goal by Brendan Gallagher with under 10 seconds remaining in regulation. Price owns a 2-1-1 record with a 2.24 goals-against-average and a .912 save percentage this season. Oct 17 - 9:59 PM

Carey Price will return to the crease for Wednesday's game against St. Louis.

Price didn't play on Saturday because he was feeling under the weather. He sat on the bench Monday even though he was healthy. Antti Niemi won both of those starts against Pittsburgh and Detroit. Price has a 1-1-1 record this campaign with a 2.32 goals-against average and .909 save percentage.
Oct 17 - 11:27 AM

Carey Price will serve as Antti Niemi's backup on Monday night.

Price is healthy after missing Saturday's contest with the flu. Niemi played well in a 4-3 shootout win over Pittsburgh that night and will make his second straight start.
Oct 15 - 7:03 PM

Carey Price will not play Saturday night as he is battling the flu.

Antti Niemi will start in his place against the Penguins. Price has had a decent start to the season with a 1-1-1 record along with a 2.32 GAA and .909 save percentage. He will rest and try to recover for Monday's game against Detroit.
Oct 13 - 12:51 PM

Carey Price allowed three goals on 29 shots during Montreal's 3-0 loss to the Los Angeles Kings.

Price was fooled on a two-on-one chance where Adrian Kempe elected to shoot instead of pass. Michael Amadio then beat him after LA's forward was left alone in the slot and finally Jeff Carter put the game away with a goal through a screen. After two solid starts to the season, Price will see his record fall to 1-1-1 with a 2.32 goals-against-average and a .909 save percentage.
Oct 11 - 10:45 PM

Carey Price is expected to get the start in Thursday's game against the Los Angeles Kings.

Price wasn't on the ice for the team's optional skate, which means he's going to be suiting up for the Canadiens' home opener tonight. The 31-year-old has been solid this season, as he owns a 1-0-1 record with a 1.98 goals-against-average and a .917 save percentage.
Oct 11 - 11:10 AM

Carey Price stopped 21 of 22 shots during Montreal's 5-1 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Don't look now, but the Montreal Canadiens look like a real team so far this season. Days after giving the Toronto Maple Leafs trouble, the Habs walked into Pittsburgh and dictated the tempo and play and came away with a much-deserved victory, limiting the Penguins to just three shots in the final period. The win has moved Price ahead of Dan Bouchard and Jose Theodore for 39th all-time on the NHL's wins list with 287. Price has a 1-0-1 record so far this season with a 1.98 goals-against-average and .917 save percentage. The Canadiens are back in action on Thursday night for their home opener against the Los Angeles Kings.
Oct 6 - 10:29 PM

Carey Price will get the start in goal against the Penguins Saturday night.

Price was solid in a 3-2 OT loss to Toronto Wednesday night but will have another tough assignment against Sid the Kid and his talented teammates. As good as Price is, we would bench him against the high-powered Penguins.
Oct 6 - 12:07 PM

Carey Price stopped 23 of 26 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The numbers from tonight's game won't jump off the page, but there's no denying that Price played very well tonight. He looked a lot more confident than he did last season, as he made several key saves to frustrate the Leafs. The Canadiens won't score many goals at five-on-five this year, so they'll need their $10.5 million goaltender play at an elite level if they're going to have a chance to make the postseason. Price will face another stiff test in his next matchup when the Canadiens travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Penguins on Saturday night.
Oct 3 - 10:23 PM

Carey Price is expected to face the Maple Leafs on Wednesday night in Montreal's season opener.

Price occupied the starter's crease during the morning skate. He struggled last year and there are concerns in front of him again going into this season, but he has the ability to improve on his statistics.
Oct 3 - 1:22 PM

Carey Price allowed three goals on 19 shots during Saturday night's 3-0 preseason loss to the Ottawa Senators.

Not a great night but Price can't be faulted on any of the goals he allowed tonight. The first of the game to Tom Pyatt was the result of a terrible giveaway, while the second was just a nice combination play from Brady Tkachuk and Matt Duchene. Price then extended as much he could with his team on the penalty kill but Mark Stone's cross-ice feed to Bobby Ryan extended Ottawa's lead to three. The Canadiens looked flat tonight and will need their franchise goaltender to steal game-after-game this season if they want any chance at making the playoffs.
Sep 29 - 9:38 PM

Carey Price will play the full game on Saturday against Ottawa.

Price has already made one appearance this preseason, but he only played half the game. He's looking to bounce back after a terrible year in 2017-18.
Sep 22 - 4:58 PM

Carey Price knows he could have performed better last season.

"At the end of the day, I know how I feel about my game and I know I could have played better," Price said. "I always feel like that regardless, but I know I can play better than that and I know my teammates will be looking to perform better this season as well. It's all intertwined, it's all connected and when you can iron out those details, it's all about chemistry." Price had a 16-26-7 record with a 3.11 goals-against-average and a .900 save percentage last year.
Aug 22 - 4:13 PM

Carey Price might become the winningest goaltender in Montreal Canadiens history during the 2018-19 season.

Price is currently third on the list with 286 victories, but Patrick Roy (289) and Jacques Plante (314) are within reach. Of course, Price would have to stay healthy to have a shot at setting the franchise mark this year. The 31-year-old had a disappointing season in 2017-18, as he had a 16-26-7 record, a 3.11 goals-against-average and a .900 save percentage. The Canadiens need him to bounce back in a big way if they're going to have any shot at making the postseason.
Aug 16 - 11:45 AM

Montreal goalie coach Stephane Waite believes Carey Price will be bounce back in 2018-19.

"I've been talking to him a lot this summer and I like his tone of voice, I like feeling that he's eager to get back into it," Waite told QMI news network. He also said in the interview that he expects Price to play "between 50 and 60 games" next season, which would give backup Antti Niemi plenty of starts.
