Can we fudge the dates a bit and call this “Carey Price Rage Week?”
The San Jose Sharks are off to an early 4-0 lead against Price and the Montreal Canadiens, prompting a rare sight: Price getting the hook. Also rare: seeing Price glare at his own coach in Michel Therrien:
Or was it the Canadiens’ bench, in general?
Whichever way you slice it, he clearly wasn’t a happy camper.
While some big-name goalies go through streaks where they get pulled often (Henrik Lundqvist had a string of those moments last year, it seemed), this is unusual for Price.
It’s tough not to think of that infamous flame-out with Patrick Roy, even if that situation happened in part because Montreal did not pull him.
BREAKING: Goalies hate giving up a lot of goals and being embarrassed.
Update: LNH.com’s Arpon Basu reports that Price declined to speak with the media after Montreal’s 4-2 loss.
