Carey Price will get the start in Game Two on Friday night against Ottawa.

Price was good, but his usual stellar self against Ottawa in Game One's victory as he stopped just 30 pucks. And the truth is that Price's career record versus Ottawa in the playoffs is checkered at best, allowing an average of 3.2 goals per game on just 30.6 shots per game on average over five games. But should you start Price tonight? Yes. Unequivocally yes you should start the likely 2014-15 Vezina and possibly Hart Trophy winner.

Montreal goalie Carey Price, who led the NHL in wins, goals-against-average, and save percentage, made 30 saves in the Canadiens' 4-3, series-opening victory over the visiting Ottawa Senators Wednesday night.

The all-Canadian series was being hyped by many in the media as a showdown between the NHL's premier goalie and its hottest goalie, Ottawa’s Andrew Hammond. Price took the lid-lifter in a game that featured 72 shots and a game misconduct (for slashing) to Montreal's star defenseman, P.K. Subban. Price had a bit of trouble against Ottawa during the regular season, allowing six goals in two games. So that's nine goals in three games against Ottawa now. Not great by Price's standards. Don't you dare even think of dumping him if you have him as your fantasy playoff goalie because, when all is said and done, he's still the top goalie in the NHL and he gives the Canadiens their best chance of advancing to the Stanley Cup final.

Carey Price will make his first start to the 2015 playoffs Wednesday night against the Ottawa Senators.

The Vezina-trophy favorite will get his 2015 playoff run underway Wednesday versus a familiar foe. The Sens have given Price some trouble this year, scoring six goals in two games with Price winning one of the two starts. Overall in 30 career games against Ottawa, he has an impressive 17-7-4 record with a 2.39 goals-against-average and .919 save percentage.

Carey Price gave up three goals on 22 shots in the Canadiens’ 4-3 shootout win against the Maple Leafs on Saturday night.

Price gave up two goals in the first and one in the second. He has allowed at least three goals in four of his past five starts, though he easily has the Vezina trophy — and possibly Hart — locked up. He finishes up with a 1.96 goals-against average, .933 save percentage and a 44-16-6 record, all of which are the best in the league. The Canadiens will play the Red Wings in the first round of the playoffs. The Habs will go as far as Price takes them.
Apr 11 - 10:22 PM

Updating an earlier post, Carey Price will indeed get the start against Toronto in the season finale Saturday night.

It might have made sense to rest Price going into the playoffs. However, that is not what Habs' coach Michel Therrien is thinking as he wants his squad to finnish first in the Atlantic Division. Make sure the Vezina Trophy favourite is in your lineup.
Apr 11 - 9:52 AM

Carey Price will start in Saturday's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Price starting is typically expected, but some might have assumed he would rest on Saturday to be better prepared for the playoffs. He has played in 65 games after all. Still, it looks like he'll be out there for the season finale.
Apr 10 - 12:23 PM

Carey Price allowed three goals on 27 shots on Thursday night, but it was enough to lead Montreal over Detroit by a score of 4-3 in overtime.

Price improves to 43-16-6 this season, owning a glowing .934 save percentage with a 1.95 goals against average. The win gave Price a Montreal Canadiens record in most wins for a goaltender in a season, surpassing Jacques Plante and Ken Dryden. Price will likely play Montreal's finale against the Leafs on Saturday, as they need a victory to secure top spot in the Atlantic.
Apr 10 - 12:39 AM

Carey Price will get the nod against Detroit on Thursday.

It hasn't been decided yet if Price will also play in Saturday's regular-season finale against Toronto. The 27-year-old netminder shares the team record for most wins with Jacques Plante and Ken Dryden at 42 apiece. Montreal wants to finish as high as possible in the standings, so Price could play at Toronto depending on how the next few days play out and how close the Tampa Bay Lightning get.
Apr 8 - 9:28 AM

Goaltender Carey Price tied the Montreal franchise record for most wins in a season Sunday.

The Canadiens defeated the Panthers 4-1 in Florida, increasing Price's victory total to 42 for the season. That ties him with two Hall of Famers -- Jacques Plante and Ken Dryden. He has two games left before the playoffs to surpass Plante and Dryden and set the club record. Price played well -- as usual -- Sunday, stopping 24 of the 25 Florida shots he faced. He has been brilliant almost all season, easily the top goalie in the NHL. His goals-against average improved Sunday to 1.93 and his save percentage is .935. There are a number of very good goalies in the NHL, but none better than Price.
Apr 5 - 7:45 PM

Look for Carey Price to return to the cage Sunday afternoon against the Panthers.

He got Friday night off against the Devils as Dustin Tokarski got the call in a 3-2 loss. Florida is battling for their playoff lives and really don't need to be facing the fabulous Price with their season on the line. Start Price if you own him.
Apr 4 - 10:01 AM

Carey Price let the league's leading goal-scorer get to him on Thursday night, allowing two goals to Alex Ovechkin and two more to Joel Ward as the Caps beat the Habs 5-4 in a shootout.

Price faced just 19 shots on the night, allowing four goals in a loss for a second consecutive game, although he faced 24 shots less than he did in the loss to Tampa Bay. The likely Vezina nominee is 41-16-6 this season with a .935 save percentage and 1.95 goals against average.
Apr 3 - 12:51 AM

Carey Price will get the start in Thursday's game against Washington.

Price has probably been the best goaltender in the world since the Olympics ended last year. He has an incredible 41-16-5 record with a 1.92 goals-against-average and a .936 save percentage this season. He shut out the Capitals the last time these two teams played but he has a career record of 5-9-3 against them. All indications are that Price will win the Vezina Trophy (top goaltender) and possibly even the Hart Trophy (league MVP) this year.
Apr 2 - 5:58 PM

Carey Price was left out to dry as he was only able to make 39 saves in Monday's 5-3 loss to Tampa Bay.

Price did all he could, but his defense was unable to keep the Lightning's attack at bay. To wit, a trio of goals was scored on Price when it was just him and the shooter. The loss drops his record to 41-16-5 with a .936 save percentage and a 1.92 GAA this season.
Mar 30 - 11:51 PM

Carey Price will start in goal for the Canadiens Monday night versus the Lightning.

Price has been a Vezina Trophy front-runner from start to finish this season. He leads the league in pretty much every goalie category including wins (41), goals-against-average (1.88), save percentage (.937) and shutouts (9). It’s been a historic year for Price and may go down as one of the best goaltending seasons of all-time.
