VIDEO: Mess with Price and you'll pay the price!

Poor Len Canayen here, still excited after watching last night's game between the Montréal Canadiens and the Devils of New Jersey. It was a very entertaining affair, with les Glorieux emerging victorious, 5-2. The highlight, though, occurred near the end of the first period, when the best goaltender in the world, Carey Price, lost his customary cool after having been run into for the second time. Here's the video.

Those who think Price overreacted to having his feet knocked out from under him, from behind, by the Devils' Kyle Palmieri should keep in mind that in May of 2014, when the Habs were well into a playoff run which could have netted them their first Stanley Cup since 1993, New York Rangers' Chris Kreider took a run at Price in exactly the same way, crashing him into the goalpost and putting him out of the game and out of the Eastern Conference finals, which the Habs then lost. See "Montreal Canadiens’ goalie Carey Price out of Eastern Final with injury", Toronto Star, 19/5/14.

This kind of deliberate (or at least negligent) crease-crashing has got to stop! Price got a double minor penalty for roughing. IMHO he should have got a medal!
