Carey Price blamed himself for Montreal's second-round playoff exit.
"I didn't play well enough for us to win the series," Price said. "I think that's basically more or less what it comes down to. We lost a lot of tight games. I just needed to make that one more save in all the games that we lost and I didn't do that." His 2.53 goals-against average and .896 save percentage certainly weren't impressive, but Montreal scored 13 goals in the six-game series and six of them came in Game 4. Price will probably win the Hart Trophy and Vezina Trophy for his efforts in 2014-15 and there's no way he should shoulder the blame for Montreal's postseason elimination. May 13 - 6:18 PM

Carey Price was beaten for three goals on 28 shots in a 4-1 loss to the Lightning Tuesday night.

The likely Vezina and Hart Trophy winner proved to be human in this second round series and unfortunately for the Habs, it would have taken a superhuman performance for them to advance. Firmly entrenched as the league's best goaltender, Price should be the most highly-regarded keeper entering fantasy drafts next fall.

The Montreal Canadiens' Carey Price lost his third consecutive game Wednesday night in what is turning out to be a disastrous playoff round for the superstar goalie.

Price allowed a goal by Tampa Bay's Tyler Johnson with 1.1 seconds left in regulation. That gave the Lightning a 2-1 victory in the game and a 3-0 lead in the Eastern Conference Second Round playoff series. Price saved 15 of the 17 shots the Lightning took at him. He is 0-3 in this postseason after giving up a season-high six goals Sunday. Price led NHL goalies in save percentage and goals-against average in the regular season. He is now showing a playoff save percentage of .920 and a goals-against average of 2.30.

Carey Price will undoubtedly get the start in net for Game 3 Monday night in Tampa Bay.

Price will try to earn his first win in the series versus the Lightning after giving up a season high six goals Sunday evening. His 2.34 goals-against-average and .922 save percentage in eight playoff games this year doesn’t exactly stand out after leading the NHL in save percentage and goals-against-average, however, nine of the 20 goals scored on Price this postseason have come with the Canadiens short-handed. The Canadiens have trailed a playoff series 26 times in their storied franchise but have only come back to win five of those series’ so Price will have to be sharper than ever if the Habs are to move on to the Conference finals.

Carey Price is a finalist for the Ted Lindsay Award.

Price is also among the nominees for the Vezina and Hart Trophies. The last time a goaltender was voted as the players' choice for the MVP title was back in 1998 when Dominik Hasek took the prize. The only other goalie to ever win the Ted Lindsay Award/Lester B. Pearson Award was Mike Liut. Price had a dominant campaign with a 1.96 GAA and .933 save percentage 66 regular season contests.
May 5 - 7:10 PM

Carey Price allowed six goals on 24 shots in Sunday's 6-2 loss to Tampa Bay.

On paper, it looks like Price struggled in this game but four of Tampa Bay's goals were scored on the man-advantage. The Canadiens have now lost the first two games of the series, but what's even more concerning is that the series will now shift to Tampa Bay. Price is the least of Montreal's worries, as they have now been held to two goals or less in six consecutive playoff games.
May 3 - 8:58 PM

Carey Price will be between the pipes for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.

This news won't surprise anyone, as Price has been incredible all year and that didn't change in game one against Tampa. This will be a must-win game for Montreal, as they already dropped game one on home ice. They will need another big performance from their goaltender if they hope to get by the Lightning on Sunday.
May 3 - 12:03 PM

Carey Price allowed two goals on 35 shots in Friday's 2-1 double overtime loss to Tampa Bay.

Price was solid on Friday, but the Habs lack of scoring did them in again. The first goal Price allowed was deflected in front of the net, while Nikita Kucherov's overtime winner was the result of a bad turnover by Greg Pateryn. Since being shelled in game five against Ottawa, Price has surrendered just two goals in two games. Montreal has now scored just four goals in their last four playoff contests going back to their series against Ottawa. Any team will have a difficult time beating Carey Price four times in a series, but if Montreal can't put the puck in the net with more regularity, Price's stellar performances will go to waste.
May 1 - 11:35 PM

Much to the delight of all Montreal supporters, Carey Price will be in net for Game One of the second round matchup with the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday night.

Price went 4-2 with a shutout, four Quality Starts, and a dozen goals against during the first round versus Ottawa. Price also allowed the same amount of goals in the four wins as he did in the two losses to Ottawa, six. While it's worth noting that Price and the Canadiens disposed of the Lightning last season in the first round in four straight, allowing 10 goals on 114 combined shots, Price also hasn't beaten the Bolts since 2013 during the regular season. A span of seven games.
