It was an entertaining back and forth game between the Montreal Canadiens and Ottawa Senators on Thursday, but the Habs can thank Carey Price for the full two points.

Price made 40 saves and his Canadian Olympic teammate P.K. Subban scored the overtime winner just 23 seconds into the extra frame to give the Canadiens a 5-4 victory in Ottawa. The Habs roared out to a three-goal lead, gave up four goals and needed Tomas Plekanec to answer in the third period to send it overtime.

The Subban winner, a snap shot as he was falling, just trickled over the goal line. Craig Anderson got most of the puck, but not all of it.

At the other end, it was Price who stole the show. His teammates sure noticed.

Habs forward Alexei Emelin fell awkwardly into the boards in the third period and was shaken up on the play. But he remained in the game.

    I wish Danny Gallavin was the announcer for this game, because even he would have been speechless at Price’ performance.

    I didn’t see the game so I’m curious what he did to be talked about as the greatest goalie performance. 4 goals on 40 shots so were some of his saves incredible?

      I was at that game last nite, Not really a fan of either team and just looking to see a close game. Carey Price stood on his head and made at least 6 crazy saves, a couple of which he had no business making!

      On a sidenote, Why do people leave in a 4-4 hockey game with less than 5 mins left. I just can’t beleive people would spend that much money on the experience of an NHL (or any pro sport) visit and then leave before it ends!

      I understand parking and all that nonsense, but it took about 20 mins to get out of the stadium and at highway speeds, SMH at those fans that leave early!!

    Great performance no doubt, but that defense was awful for most of the game. Price bailed them out so badly, could have easily been 7 or 8 goals for Ottawa. They rightfully mobbed Price as much as Subban after the GWG.

    Subban acts like such a punk after his goal…Classless
