In the Habs' Room: Carey Price spectacular in shootout win over Leafs .
TORONTO — Carey Price wasn’t among the three stars introduced at the conclusion of the Canadiens-Maple Leafs game Saturday, but he should have been. Price was the reason why the Canadiens escaped with a 6-5 shootout win over the Leafs. Forget the five goals he surrendered in regulation time, most of which were the result of sloppy play from the guys in front. When the game was on the line — in the overtime and in the shootout — Price was spectacular. On three occasions in overtime, Price was challenged on breakaways. There was a stop on Mitch Marner and then two saves against John Tavares.
