In the Habs' Room: Carey Price spectacular in shootout win over Leafs

  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.

Five goals or not, Carey Price won Montreal their first game of the year. Montreal erased a three-goal deficit against their new bogeyman, the Toronto Maple Leafs. Above all action playing out among the skaters in the game, the guy who ended the night with an .865 save percentage was the biggest

Montreal erased a three-goal deficit against their new bogeyman, the Toronto Maple Leafs. Above all action playing out among the skaters in the game, the guy who ended the night with an .865 save percentage was the biggest story of all. It’s not often in the modern era that a goalie can give up five goals and still be the biggest reason why a team won, but Carey Price shattered that narrative and proved why he is “Mr. Saturday Night.”

While regulation was tough on the netminder, including a fifth goal, from Auston Matthews, in the dying moments, Price had given the Canadiens every chance to win in Toronto. In overtime, Price proved to everyone why he’s paid so handily, and his performance silenced even the most vocal of his detractors.

BELL CENTRE 29/10/11 - Montreal Canadiens' Carey Price after win over Bruins.

His first chance came with Mitch Marner breaking in alone, and Price fell for none of his moves.

Price wasn’t done there. Following an ill-fated power play, it would be John Tavares on a breakaway out of the box with Jeff Petry tailing him. Tavares pulled out some nifty moves, but the glove hand of Price denied him to keep the overtime period going.

The goaltender had one final say in the overtime period, as he kicked out the toe of his pad to deny Tavares at the last gasp to force it to a shootout.

In the penalty-shot portion, Price turned away Matthews, Marner, and Tavares in order to clinch the comeback win.

He isn’t going to give up five goals very often, but if Carey Price can still win games in a fashion like this, the Canadiens may surprise plenty of teams. Through two games he’s arguably been the best player on the roster, and that bodes very well for a Montreal squad that will be in a fight all year for a playoff spot.
