The Montreal Canadiens came into the playoffs as the 4th and last seed in what many thought was a weak North Division. Nobody really gave them a shot. Now two wins away from the Stanley Cup finals, the Canadiens have a real shot. A real shot afforded to them by goaltender Carey Price.
Price faced 45 shots against the Las Vegas Golden Knights, stopping 43 of them.
Price has been one of the leagues premier net minders for nearly a decade now. His play allows for his teammates to take more chances and amplifies the quality of their defensive efforts.
Montreal has been an underdog in every series so far, but now lead the Golden Knights 2-1 in the Western Conference finals.
If the Montreal Canadiens are to advance to the finals, it will be because of Carey Price.
