This just in: the Montreal Canadiens aren’t just about Carey Price.
To really hammer that point home, the Habs became just the second team to start a season with eight straight regular season wins … and they won this last one with Price taking a siesta.
Instead, little-known backup Mike Condon grabbed his second win in 2015-16, stopping 34 out of 36 shots.
It wasn’t close, either, as the Canadiens trounced the Sabres by a score of 7-2 in Buffalo.
Amusingly enough, the Sabres franchise pulled that off before, albeit 40 years ago.
If you remove the caveat of kicking off a season, it’s still a special run for a special franchise.
