Video: Price stands on head through first two periods vs. B’s (Update: Overtime too)

May 1, 2014, 11:17 PM EDT

Through 40 minutes of Game 1, the biggest story of the Montreal-Boston series has been Carey Price.

The Habs netminder has been nothing short of brilliant on Thursday, stopping his first 22 shots faced as Montreal went into the second intermission with a 2-0 lead on the Bruins, thanks to goals from P.K. Subban and Rene Bourque.

The story though, as mentioned, has been Price. He showed no signs of rust after an eight-day layoff between tonight’s game and Game 4 of the Tampa Bay series, looking razor sharp as Boston fired 13 shots on goal in the opening frame — which included this glorious chance from Torey Krug:

In the second period, Price was at his very best while Montreal killed off a Josh Gorges penalty:

That stop on Iginla — wow.

It’s worth noting that Price only faced the B’s once this season, as Montreal’s schedule and goalie rotation saw Peter Budaj appear in the final three games of the year against Boston. Price’s lone game against the Bruins was a success, though, as he stopped 32 of 33 shots for a 2-1 win.

Update: Well, Price is sure having himself a night. Here are his highlights from the first overtime session, in which he stopped all 14 shots. He had 47 saves going into the second OT…

    If by stand on his head you mean lots of missed open nets, posts and complete refusal to shoot the puck then I agree.

    Montreal has played well. They always do against the B’s. Boston hasn’t played bad.

      Montreal did not play well at all. If they would have played nearly as well as they can Price would not have been required to make so many big stops to bailout his teammates.

    Please someone take Pierre to an eyeglass store to update his Harry Potters.

    • cadlow - May 1, 2014 at 11:40 PM

      Yah Bostons weak
      2 hit posts,20 more shots on net, 12 more scoring chances, dominated offensive zone time, yah Bostons weak….try Motreal was lucky.
      No one thought the B’s would sweep but they will win in 6.
      They dominated play.
