A Few Days ago Here Was the Carey Price Saga

The biggest news early in NHL pre-season took place on Wednesday night in Montreal where the Carey Price experiment got off to a disastrous start. Making his debut as the undisputed number one goalie Price who is a former 2005 first round pick was the target of some merciless boos from the fans after he allowed four goals on eight shots in what was a 4-2 loss against the Boston Bruins. A day later Price who is only 23 years-old showed a bit of frustration as he gave the fans a message through the media. “Relax, chill out, we have lots of time,” Price who posted a 13-20-5 record with a 2.77 GAA and a .912 save percentage said. “I don’t know what (the fans’) message was but I don’t think it’s the correct way to go about things.” On Thursday during practice at the Bell Centre coach Jacques Martin made it a top priority to have a one on one talk with Price to try and pump up his starting goaltender. “He just told me that it’s the first exhibition game, so it’s not going to go down in the history books. Let’s move on,” Price said. To a man all of his teammates were saying the right things to the media on Thursday when talking about their new undisputed number one goalie. “We’ve all got his back and we’re all supporting him,” Habs scoring forward Mike Cammalleri said. “No one in here is booing him, so if everyone wants to identify with this team, we’re all supporting him so jump on board.” 29 Sports.com will be following this story closely once the regular season starts.
