Goaltender Carey Price made his season debut last night when he replaced Jaroslav Halak midway through the exhibition game against the Penguins, but he allowed three goals on 17 shots and didn’t give the Canadiens a chance to win. But as Pat Hickey writes, he didn’t have much help from his teammates. Halak also looked shaky at the start of the game when he was beaten twice within the first three minutes.
