Busy week in net for rookie Price

The Gazette’s Pat Hickey writes that this will likely be the busiest week of Carey Price’s NHL career so far. The rookie goaltender will face the Maple Leafs in Toronto tonight and will then start at home against the Bruins on Saturday night. Head coach Guy Carbonneau said this decision was taken last week after sitting down with his two netminders.

"It’s probably the first time I’ve done that, but we kind of pre-picked the games for the goalies," Carbonneau said.

Price, as usual, was low key about his next two starts.

"It’s a tough building," said Price, whose only action in the ACC came during a 2006 exhibition game.

"It’s another Canadian team and every Canadian rink is tough to play in from what I hear. I’m looking forward, but I’m not treating it differently from every other game. I’m going there to win and so is everyone else."
