Brendan Gallagher pots pair as Habs double up Red Wings

  Brendan Gallagher pots pair as Habs double up Red Wings Brendan Gallagher scored twice, including his 30th of the season, as the Montreal Canadiens defeated the visiting Detroit Red Wings 4-2 on Monday. Paul Byron and Alex Galchenyuk also scored for Montreal (28-37-12). Carey Price made 26 saves for his first victory since Feb. 4. He was 0-5-2 since then. Gustav Nyquist and Tyler Bertuzzi scored for Detroit (27-38-11) while goalie Jared Coreau stopped 27-of-31 shots in his fifth game of the season. Coreau is 0-4-0 this year. Both the Canadiens and Red Wings have already been eliminated from playoff contention and will be in the thick of this summer's draft lottery.

I remember Carey Price ’s first game as a Hab . I did not watch it, but I remember Bob McKenzie saying that Price might have been the most important pick in the 2005 NHL Draft — more important than Sidney Crosby.

From his first game in Pittsburgh to his 557th, Carey Price has been a constant for the Habs.

I remember Carey Price’s first game as a Hab. I did not watch it, but I remember Bob McKenzie saying that Price might have been the most important pick in the 2005 NHL Draft — more important than Sidney Crosby.

Of course, Price made his debut against Crosby. Of course Price won his first game because he is Carey Price, and that is what he does.

I remember his first shutout like it was yesterday. It was an afternoon game against the Philadelphia Flyers and I was watching in my parents’ family room. It was a close game and he pulled it out in the end.

"I've always been a big rodeo fan and being from out west, you kind of grow up around it." - Carey Price . Fishing, taking Fuzz for a ride, and perfecting his roping technique were all things that did more good for Price than wondering what might have been for the Habs in the 2008 Playoffs.

On the subject of Max I’ll only say this, I hope he makes it back asap, we ’ re better with him in the lineup, but so long as Carey Price is in net, the Habs will be a They support the D, although sometimes you do have to question mental errors – something that is always going to be part of the game.

I remember the season where it looked like Price would never fulfill his promise and all was lost. Of course, part of that was he played with a high ankle sprain, but it still looked bleak. Yet Bob Gainey’s faith in his goalie never wavered, and Price was able to vindicate his former GM for a decision that was highly controversial at the time.

In the hotbed of hockey, Price has risen above and made it impossible to not want to see what he can do. He is a machine in goal; efficient, not making any more movements than necessary.

He has gone through three goalie coaches: Rollie Melanson who tried to change his game too much, Pierre Groulx who had to reset him, and Stephane Waite who helped him rise to levels unknown. Price was a goalie put in an impossible situation, and was able to make it possible. From the cowboy themed masks of his early career to the Habs-centric masks of today, Price has been a constant since 2007.

Gone were the whiskers on Carey Price , having lost a battle to a razor Monday morning. Indeed, there were important off-ice matters to be discussed, both featured on Habs TV. “Throughout my career I’ve always had great relationships with whoever I’ve worked with.

Here is really and truly how it was clear last Monday that Carey Price was going to clean up at the NHL Awards gala at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas two nights later Yes, Price walked away from the table a winner after having successfully wagered on his jersey number. If ever there were an omen …

Has there been a player who has impacted the Habs more than Price in recent memory? He has consistently been there for his teammates; standing on his head to make up for their errors on the ice, and standing up for them when needed off of it. In turn, they adored him even if they showed it in funny ways. He never complained, even when the going got tough.

He has won the Hart, the Ted Lindsay, and the Vezina in the same season due to his excellence. He has been remarkable.

From the lowest of lows when he did not play for about a month while Groulx worked to rebuild him as a goalie and a conditioning stint in the AHL, to his remarkable season two years ago, Price has been steady for the Habs for the past 10 years. Through the ups and downs, he has stayed.

Montreal is home. In so many ways, Price is the Habs. He is their most recognizable player and their spokesperson. He is the one who other players cite when they talk about the Habs.

Price sets Canadiens record for games played by goalie

  Price sets Canadiens record for games played by goalie Montreal goalie Carey Price made history in starting Tuesday against Winnipeg, passing Jacques Plant for the most regular-season games played by a Canadiens goaltender. Carey Price devient le gardien le plus sollicité de l'histoire du club.

Unfortunately for Rangers fans, Scott Gomez scored the winner and Carey Price held the fort to move the Habs record to 3-0 this season against their Big Apple opponents. Moreover, where Weber has always been known as an offensive defenseman, what is most impressive is how well he is playing

If Price was traded, I think some fans would be upset ( there are always some who are too attached to the player) but the media at least would be more interested in the guy on the other end of the trade. Will the Habs trade Carey Price this summers if they lose the series?

This season has been rough on Price, but he has not thrown anyone under the bus. He will be able to reset this summer and come back stronger than before. He will only accumulate more games played in a Habs jersey as the years go on, cementing himself as one of the top players the stories franchise has ever seen.

From a start in the Igloo in Pittsburgh to the spotlight of the Olympics and everything in between, Carey Price has been a star that won’t stop shining.
