Carey Price will, of course, be in goal when the Montreal Canadiens open their first-round playoff series against the Tampa Bay Lightning Wednesday night.
Price has been strong against Tampa, with a 1.42 GAA and a .956 save percentage. "I expect Carey to be the same leader for us that he’s been all season long," said Habs coach Michel Therrien. "He’s matured and he’s playing with a lot of confidence." Apr 15 - 11:06 AM

Montreal goaltender Carey Price turned in a strong game Saturday night, saving 41 New York shots in a 1-0, overtime triumph against the visiting Rangers.

Canadiens captain Brian Gionta produced the game winner on a penalty shot. The win means the Habs still have a chance to start the Stanley Cup playoffs at home. They've known for days they will face the Tampa Bay Lightning in the playoffs' first round but the determination of home-ice advantage in the series won't be known until Tampa Bay visits Washington Sunday. The victory Saturday gave the Habs 100 points, the first time since 2007-08 that they hit the century mark and only the second since 1992-93, when they last won the Stanley Cup. The Habs leapfrogged the Lightning into second place in the Atlantic Division, with a one-point lead going into Tampa's final game. The Lightning must beat the Capitals to claim home-ice advantage in the first round as the Canadiens hold the first tiebreaker with more regulation and overtime wins. Price finishes his regular season with a 33-20-5 record, a .236 GAA and a .925 save percentage.

Carey Price will start in goal Saturday night against the Rangers.

He is coming off a 2-0 loss to the Islanders and will be looking to end the regular season on a winning note heading into the playoffs.
Apr 12 - 10:46 AM

Carey Price played well, but suffered a defeat in the Canadiens 2-0 loss to the Islanders Thursday.

Price steered away 28 of 30 shots in the contest, but he was the victim of poor offensive support and saw his record fall to 33-20-5 as a result. His ratios remain sold, as his GAA is 2.36 and his save percentage is .925.
Apr 10 - 10:30 PM

Carey Price will start in Montreal's final two regular season games.

Price will not participate in Wednesday's contest against Chicago though. At this point, Montreal's primary concern is making sure Price is in a good place going into the postseason, so they'll give him some work to keep his routine going while also allowing him to rest a bit.
Apr 8 - 1:35 PM

Carey Price made 34 saves as Montreal defeated Detroit on Saturday night 5-3.

Price nearly saw what looked to be an easy win disappear. Montreal held a 3-0 lead in the third period, but the Red Wings scored three straight goals to tie it up. Price has five wins over his last six games. He remains a rock-solid option between the pipes. Price has a 2.37 goals-against average and .925 save percentage, good for fifth in the league.
Apr 5 - 11:03 PM

Carey Price made 30 saves on 32 shots Tuesday night but it was not enough as the Bolts zinged the Habs 3-1 in a potential first round playoff preview.

Price's four game winning streak is snapped, as the red-hot goaltender loses for just the second time in 11 games since Feb. 4. Price is 32-19-5 this season with a .925 save percentage and 2.36 goals against average.
Apr 1 - 11:56 PM

Carey Price blocked 36 shots in the Canadiens' 4-1 win against the Panthers on Saturday night.

A nice bounce-back outing after giving up four in a win against the Red Wings on Thursday. Price gave up the lone goal late in the second period. He has won four straight contests, giving him 32 wins, a 2.36 goals-against average and .925 save percentage. Use him with confidence as the season comes to a close.
Mar 29 - 10:50 PM

Carey Price will start in goal against Florida Saturday night.

He is coming off a sub-par performance in which he allowed four goals but registered the win against Detroit Thursday night. We expect Price to rebound against the success-challenged Panthers. Make sure you start him.
Mar 29 - 10:09 AM

Carey Price and the Canadiens defeated Detroit in a crazy 5-4 contest Thursday night.

Price allowed four goals on 30 shots in the victory, but the game was a wide-open affair that shouldn't be treated as a sign of things to come. By extending his winning streak to three games, he has now emerged victorious in eight of his last nine outings. His GAA is 2.39 while his save percentage is .924.
Mar 27 - 10:03 PM

Carey Price stopped all 24 shots he faced in Tuesday night's 2-0 win over the Buffalo Sabres.

Price is 7-1-0 in his past eight games, but had shown a bit of rust since returning from his post-Olympic injury. He had allowed three or more goals in each of his previous four starts before shutting out the Sabres. Price improves to 30-18-5 this season with a .925 save percentage and 2.36 goals against average.
Mar 25 - 11:56 PM

Carey Price will be the Canadiens' starter on Tuesday.

Price has won six of his last seven starts and is going for his 30th victory of the 2013-14 campaign. He has a 2.40 GAA and .924 save percentage in 52 games.
Mar 25 - 1:08 PM

Carey Price played a decent game for the Canadiens in Saturday's 4-3 win over Toronto at the Air Canada Centre.

Price was far from exceptional in the contest, but he certainly was good enough to garner a win to improve his record to 29-18-5. He blocked 33 of 36 shots in the win and after his prior five-game winning streak was snapped earlier in the week, this decision helps him to begin a new streak.
Mar 22 - 10:42 PM

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

He is coming off a very strong game in which he stopped 40 shots against the Blue Jackets.
Mar 22 - 11:42 AM

Carey Price played a strong game, but suffered a loss in Thursday's 3-2 defeat at the hands of the Blue Jackets.

Price allowed three goals on 40 shots in the defeat, which snaps his personal five-game winning streak and drops his record to 28-18-5. The good news is that he appears to be fully recovered from the lower-body injury that kept him out of the lineup earlier in the month. His GAA is now 2.39 while his save percentage is .924.
