Comparing Carey Price's season to the all-time best results from NHL goaltenders

Price has been great, but has his season been enough to declare it the best in the history of the NHL? There's no two ways about it, Carey Price is in the midst of producing one of the best season in NHL history. At the moment, there's no one who poses a threat among all active goaltenders, which means we have to compare his numbers to the best seasons in NHL history to get a better perspective of how spectacular he's been during the 2014-15 campaign. I limited the results to goalies that played more than 50 games in a season, so as to weed out the hot streaks. Once that's done, there are...

This time however, the Canadiens were determined to flip the script, no one more so than Carey Price.

Sharks Priced out of a win in Montreal

Carey Price continued his MVP season with a 29-save shutout of San Jose. Montreal Canadiens goalie and Hart Trophy frontrunner Carey Price hammered yet another nail in the realistically already-buried coffin containing the Sharks' playoff chances. Price made 29 saves, including a potentially game-saving stop on Logan Couture in the final minute, in leading the Habs to a 2-0 win over San Jose. After failing to score on the Sharks in the teams' previous three meetings, Montreal turned the tables with a shutout of their own. Tomas Plekanec's scored Montreal's only non-empty netter during an...

They'll play the third game, their penultimate visit to a Canadian city on this swing, today in Montreal against a Canadiens team that currently sits atop the Eastern Conference and two points behind the Anaheim Ducks for first overall in the NHL standings.

The Sharks will try to expose them...

Game Analysis: Price, Habs Blank Hurricanes

The Canadiens jumped out to a first-period lead and never looked back, riding goalie Carey price to a 4-0 win over Carolina Thursday in Montreal. Montreal jumped out to a two-goal first period lead and Carolina couldn't crack Carey Price, who earned his eighth shutout of the year in the Canadiens 4-0 home win over the Hurricanes. Three Observations 1.

Canadiens vs. Hurricanes recap: Price gets some run support in shutout effort

The Canadiens took to their home ice following an up and down trip to Florida, and came out with a solid win. After a lackluster effort against the Florida Panthers in the second half of a Florida back-to-back, the Habs managed to yield two points regardless, thanks largely to Dustin Tokarski's imitation of Carey Price. They made their way out of the sunshine state with two of four available points, and straight home for what one would expect to be an easy match against the Carolina Hurricanes, currently locked in a battle with the Leafs for second-to-last in the Eastern Conference. ...

Canadiens vs Islanders second period thread

Carey Price is laying the foundation for another game-saving performance. It was a slow start to the game for the Habs, who only managed 3 shot attempts within the first 10 minutes played, while allowing 7 towards their own net. After giving up a second powerplay to the Isles, the Habs gave up 4 more shot attempts and 3 shots on goal before taking the puck up ice to exert some of their own pressure with Lars Eller and Alex Galchenyuk trading shots on Michal Neuvirth for the Habs' most substantial offensive outburst of the period. Carey Price faced 13 shots, and of the 25 thrown towards his...
