The real Carey Price stood up against the Flyers

It would be fair to say that the Canadiens won that game in spite of his play, which is atypical of his tenure as Montreal’s starting goaltender.

Heading into Thursday’s game with an unspectacular .910 save percentage, it is actually fair to also say that he has struggled in general to start the season.

Maybe if the refs called the blatant high stick to the face of Jonathan Drouin late in the third, Price would have gotten that result.

The officiating was decidedly one-sided on the night, but it’s hard to blame the loss on that when Price made sure every Flyers opportunity was negated.

I had started writing an article the other day to talk a bit about Price’s early season struggles.

Hopefully this is a sign of things to come, because some more vintage Carey Price goaltending could take this team a long way in the marathon that is the NHL season.
