Montreal Canadiens star goalie Carey Price came into Tuesday’s game with a seven-game winning streak. He won’t even make it to the second intermission against the Los Angeles Kings, however.
The Kings scored four goals on 16 shots against Price, who was pulled 5:25 into the second period tonight. On the bright side, he didn’t have the most embarrassing performance of the night, as he at least lasted longer than Braden Holtby did. (Hey, you take what you can get.)
The bigger bright side is that Price, 26, has been fantastic enough this season that Team Canada should take notice. He just won’t want to put Dec. 10 on his resume.
Update: It didn’t get a whole lot better for the Canadiens overall, as they lost 6-0.
