GAME #4 Canadiens-2 Buffalo-1 Oct. 15/2010

Oct 15th, 2010 | By

The Canadiens first power play goal of the season turned out to be the game winner as the team edged the Sabres 2-1 in Buffalo Friday night.

Josh Gorges one-timed a Roman Hamrlik rolling puck off the post past Ryan Miller to give the Canadiens a 2-0 lead late in the second period. The Canadiens then fought off a sustained third period Buffalo effort that included Derek Roy’s league leading 5th goal, to register their second win of the season.



GAME #3 – Tampa Bay-4 Montreal-3 OT 10/13/2010

Oct 13th, 2010 | By

The finger of blame for the Canadiens 4-3 overtime loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday night can be pointed in many directions, but ultimately blame must be placed on the heads of the refereeing tandem of Don VanMassenhoven and Steve Kozari who completely missed a blatant trip in front of the Canadiens net with just over a minute left in regulation time that led to the goal that sent the game into overtime. Steven Stamkos scored on the play and Ryan Malone, who had executed the trip that led to the tieing goal, then scored with 51-seconds left in overtime to win the game



GAME #2 Canadiens-3 Pittsburgh-2 9/10/10

Oct 9th, 2010 | By

It was like there was a Game-8 in last spring’s Canadiens/Penguins playoff series. In a game that took on the aspects of a war at times, the Canadiens scored two goals in the span of 25 seconds late in the third period to beat the Penguins 3-2 in a game that featured all of the intensity of a Stanley Cup game. Michael Cammalleri was given credit for the tieing goal with 2:12 remaining and twenty-five seconds later Scott Gomez scored what turned out to be the game winner. Carey Price stopped 36 of 38 Pittsburgh shots.



PRICE IN GOAL TONIGHT AFTER ALL

Oct 7th, 2010 | By

Apparently that flu bug that kept Carey Price off the ice at practice yesterday was the 24-hour variety. Price has been named to start in goal tonight in the Canadiens season opener against the Maple Leafs in Toronto tonight.

Roster players not available tonight; Michael Cammalleri (one game suspension) and Roman Hamrlik (knee).

CANADIENS QUESTION MARKS FOR SEASON OPENER

Oct 6th, 2010 | By

The Canadiens assigned five to the minors today with no surprises in the group. They open their season with some question marks. Carey Price suffering from the flu; Roman Hamrlik has had an injury setback; Michael Cammalleri is suspended and Andrei Markov is still rehabilitating from May knee surgery.



CAREY PRICE ON THE BELL CENTRE BOO-BIRDS

Sep 24th, 2010 | By

Carey Price found out Wednesday how short the attention span is for a segment of the Canadiens hockey fan base. Bob Gainey called that minority of fans “bullies”; the same group that wouldn’t let up on the now-retired Patrice Brisebois. Price’s sins, in the eyes of the boo-birds was not being traded by GM Pierre Gauthier, something completely out of his control, and letting in 4 goals on eight shots in training camp’s first exhibition game. Price didn’t make himself available to the media after the game Wednesday night. He opened up at practice on Thursday in Brossard. With a night to digest what was an uncomfortable experience, he seemed resigned to what is, unfortunately, the lot of a goaltender in a Canadiens uniform.



BEHIND THE CAREY PRICE CONTRACT

Sep 2nd, 2010 | By

The Canadiens will pay Carey Price 2.75 million dollars in each of the next two seasons, which represents an increase in salary over the 2.2 million, including bonuses, that he was paid last season. The contract calls for exactly the same money that another restricted free agent goaltender, Antti Niemi of the Blackhawks, was awarded through arbitration earlier in the summer. The question might be asked, ‘at 2.75 million per year, who would you rather have on your team; Price or Niemi?’



CAREY PRICE SIGNS- TWO-YEARS AT 2.75 MILLION PER SEASON

Sep 2nd, 2010 | By

It took almost all summer but Carey Price finally settled on a two year contract with the Canadiens today. Price will be paid 2.75 million dollars per season. The signing was announced only 48 hours after rumours were floated that the restricted free agent was prepared to withhold his training camp services if he did not receive a three million dollar contract.



CAREY PRICE THIRD AT SMITHERS B.C. RODEO-Unsubstantiated Holdout Rumours Floated

Aug 31st, 2010 | By

While Carey Price was finishing third in the team roping competition at the Smithers B.C. Rodeo on the weekend, rumours were sufracing that Price is demanding a three million contract with the Canadiens or he was prepared to withhold his services to the team. Price is a restricted free agent without aribtration rights. The rumours are a product of the blogosphere and the sources are questionable, but that has never stopped the web gossip before.

CAREY PRICE WINS TWO B.C. RODEO ROPING EVENTS

Aug 16th, 2010 | By

Carey Price had to get permission from the Canadiens to compete in off-season rodeo events. The agreement was Price would involve himself only in team calf roping events. This weekend past Carey and his partner won a sanctioned B.C. Rodeo Association event at Nemiah Valley near Williams Lake. The victory brought him a $300.30 check. So far this season, Price has earned just over 900 dollars on the B.C. circuit and ranks 6th in the association’s rookie-of-the-year standings.
