Are you kidding me?
It’s been a difficult season for the Montreal Canadiens, and that includes their superstar goaltender Carey Price. He hasn’t played up to his own incredibly high standard so far, as evidenced by his mediocre .910 save percentage.
But boy was he all-world for the Habs on Thursday night.
Facing the league-leading Tampa Bay Lightning, Price was outstanding. The former Hart Trophy winner stopped 44 of 45 shots, then stopped all three shots in the shootout, carrying the Canadiens to a 2-1 win.
He saved his best for overtime, making an incredible glove save on Tyler Johnson, before rolling on his back in desperation to rob Ondrej Palat with his right pad.
