Liveblog: Game 19 – Canadiens rally late but lose 2-1 in Shootout; Price makes 44 saves

Price

Heroic PK in OT

The Canadiens managed to kill a TWO-MAN disadvantage in overtime and take this crazy game to a Shootout.

Carey Price made 44 saves in regulation and OT.

Galchenyuk: Save

Filppula: Goal

Brière: Save

Purcell: Save

Gallagher: Wide

Carey Price was the game's First Star .. well deserved

 

At least a point salvaged

A Max Pacioretty pass bounced in off Daniel Brière to tie a game the Canadiens trailed for 55 minutes. On to OT ... with Lars Eller in the penalty box

Lucky it's a one-goal game

A point shot by Radko Gudas beat Carey Price, but the light didn't go on and play proceeded up ice.

Video review produced a ruling that Price had been the victim of "incidental contact" on the play.

The visitors outshot the home team 13-5 in the period, 23-13 on the game.

Three chances blown

The Canadiens had three power plays during the first period.

There were chances, but Tampa Bay goaltender Ben Bishop stood tall ... very tall.

Ryan Malone scored the only goal of the period, surviving a Douglas Murray crosschecks on Carey Price's doorstep and tipping home a point shot by Eric Brewer.

Shots were 10-8 for the visitors.

Star won't shine

What a bummer!

Bell Centre fans miss out on seeing one of the NHL's brightest young stars when the Tampa Bay Lightning visit the Canadiens Tuesday night.

In a goalpost collision eerily reminiscent of the one that sidelined Serge Savard early in his career, Steven Stamkos fractured his right tibia in Boston Monday afternoon.

Stamkos, who had never missed an NHL game to injury, is out indefinitely. He had been tied for the league lead in goals at 14 with Alexander Steen of St. Louis and in points at 23 with Sidney Crosby.

Tampa Bay defencemen Sami Salo and Keith Aulie also left the Monday game with injuries.

The Lightning had gone through their first 16 games without injuries – in contrast to the Canadiens, who are still missing Brandon Prust but may see the imminent return of Daniel Brière and Alexei Emelin.

The gold standard of hockey celebrations

    Please be EGG for the SO.

  23. Peter Young says:

    The last five minutes of regulation time and the overtime were alone worth the price of admission. Brilliant.

  24. Cdnman1 says:

    Bring out the EGG!

  25. monmick says:

    First Star – Stéphane Waite!

    ~~~> Mathematically eliminated…

  26. NLhabsfan says:

    Your right the 5 on 3 did work in our favor.

  27. Storman says:

    Price made 44 saves and we blocked another 25, man did we steal a point and maybe another if Price continues to stand on his head in shootout

  28. danhabsfan says:

    Get 2 points for Price… He’s the first star regardless

  29. smiler2729 says:

    And to the Shootout… flip a coin, that ain’t hockey.
    #MORE OVERTIME!

    Price has been heroic. I’ll say it. He HAS to be Team Canada’s starter.

  31. Mavid says:

    shootout yikes..hope Price is as good as he has been all game..

  32. shootdapuck says:

    what bizzare so participants now

  33. Steven says:

    Plekanec and Gionta are actually amazing together. Too bad they didn’t get to play together when Cammalleri was still around, that would have been a great line, albeit small.

    What that line needs is a good, big winger, I think. Bournival’s been great in his time with them, but you really see how good Gionta and Plekanec are together when they have space, and Bournival doesn’t create that space for them.

  34. Mattyleg says:

    Well!

    Got the score wrong, but called that it would go to a shootout!

    I hope this Stevie wonder is not blind…

  44. danhabsfan says:

    Bishop doesn’t look so good now, does he.

  45. Mondou6 says:

    This could be the best game I’ve ever seen Price play. We should have lost this one like 4-1 or 5-1.

  46. Samovich says:

    Price is simply sublime..

  47. adadi says:

    In fffing credible. Price for Mayor.

  51. Storman says:

    We are due for another auto penalty

  52. Mondou6 says:

    Why is it 5 on 4 now? That’s a huge benefit over a 4 on 3. What a stupid rule.

  53. Storman says:

    Lucky Carey did not hold that for a faceoff

    PRICE!!!!

    Then 5-on-4 until a whistle after the penalty is over.
