One-on-One: Price shuts out negative thoughts

Carey Price is considered to be the Canadiens’ goaltender of the future, and he has shown flashes of brilliance this season. But the 20-year-old has also shown that he is a young goaltender who still has some work to do.

That’s something the 6-foot-3, 226-pound Vancouver native is keenly aware of, especially after a stint with the AHL’s Hamilton Bulldogs that allowed him to regain some of the form he had lost after a strong start as an NHL rookie.

Drafted by the Canadiens in the first round (fifth overall) at the 2005 NHL entry draft, Price has enjoyed a great deal of success in a short period of time. Heading into last night’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers, he had a 10-8-3 record with the Canadiens, along with a 2.83 goals-against average and .908 save percentage.


In this week’s One-on-One feature,
The Gazette’s Kevin Mio sits down with Price to discuss his quick rise to the NHL and how he has been able to make the necessary adjustments
quickly.

    Don’t you notice that whenever Dirty F&^%er of the laffs scores a goal, when he celebrates, doesn’t he look like a psychopath?

    Great interview in the Gazette today Mio! It was much better than staring at Darcy Tucker’s ugly mug.

    I would like to thank Kovalev for that great save he made with the 5 on 3.Way to go Kovy.I also thought that the 4th line played good.I was a little worried about our players being beat around,but they showed up last night.KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK HABS.

  5. Chuck says:

    I’d like to thank him for the save, too; however, he was also the reason that the puck was heading for the goal line in the first place.

    I think Huet should start today.Bring Price along slowly too much too soon may hurt him.

  7. Chuck says:

    So one back-to-back start is going to ruin him? :)
