Carey Price Makes Sensational Diving Save On Kyle Palmieri


  • The Canadiens had found yet another way to give up a scoring chance in the final minute of a period, this one coming with just two attackers facing three Habs skaters.
  • It could have very well resulted in a 5-3 goal, but Carey Price got over to snatch the puck just before it crossed the goal line.
  • But this is getting ridiculous as Habs lose again.
  • On the bright side, the Canadiens only gave up a touchdown this time.
  • After giving up a touchdown and a two-point convert in Tuesday’s 8-1 loss to the Boston Bruins, the Canadiens were beaten 6-4 by the New Jersey Devils Thursday night.
  • It marked the third straight game the Canadiens have given up at least six goals in a game, including last Saturday’s 6-5 loss to the New York Rangers.
  • All three games were at the Bell Centre, where the Canadiens now have a 6-6-2 record.
  • The Canadiens are winless in their last six games (0-4-2) and not surprisingly have fallen out of a playoff position with an 11-9-5 record.
  • This is getting ridiculous.
  • The Montreal Canadiens are sputtering, and head coach Claude Julien didn’t hide his displeasure.

  • Carey Price gave up six goals on 35 shots, while the Canadiens fired 48 shots at Devils goalie Mackenzie Blackwood, who made a career-high 44 saves.

  • Price — again — didn’t get a lot of help from his defence and three of the goals came on two-on-ones.
  • But the Canadiens are paying “the best goalie in the world” US$15 million this season to cover up some of those defensive mistakes and that’s not happening nearly enough.
  • A frustrated Price broke his stick over the crossbar after giving up the fifth goal before the Devils scored their final goal into an empty net.
  • Price’s record is now 10-8-3 with a 3.19 goals-against average and a .897 save percentage.
  • Brendan Gallagher, Jesperi Kotkaniemi, Joel Armia and Artturi Lehkonen scored for the Canadiens.
  • Attendance at the Bell Centre (capacity 21,302) was 20,876, marking the seventh time in 14 home games this season that the Canadiens failed to sell out.
  • Something has to change to get this team back on track.
  • GM Marc Bergevin can’t sit back and watch much longer.
