Nov. 3, 2017 Price stopped 21 of 26 shots in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Wild. This is the seventh time in 11 starts and the third in a row that the former Vezina Trophy winner has allowed at least four goals.

Oct. 25, 2017 Price made 26 saves, helping Montreal end its seven-game skid with a 5-1 win over the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night. Price doesn't typically lack for confidence, but he probably needed some after posting an .861 save percentage over his previous three games.

Oct. 18, 2017 Price stopped 30 of 34 shots in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Sharks. Price's rough start to the season continued as he dropped a fifth straight start, his longest losing streak since October 2011. He has a 4.00 GAA during this skid.

After opening the season with a stellar 43-save effort in a 3-2 shootout win at Buffalo, Price has stopped just 33 of 39 shots in losing his last two starts. All have come on the road, where the standout goaltender also struggled at times during his strong 2016-17 campaign. He went 23-11-3 with a 2.09 goals-against average at home, and Montreal's next two games will be at Bell Centre.
Oct. 7, 2017 Price stopped just 10 of 14 shots in the first period and was lifted in favor of Al Montoya (seven saves) to start the second in Saturday's 6-1 loss to the Capitals. This was a much different effort than Price's season debut when he stopped 43 shots in a win. We expect he'll bounce back in his next time out.
Oct. 5, 2017 Price stopped 43 of 45 shots Thursday in a season-opening 3-2 shootout win at Buffalo. Price has allowed three goals or fewer in a remarkable 27 straight starts against Buffalo. He is 11-9-7 with a 1.86 GAA in that span. That run dates to a 5-1 loss to the Sabres on March 4, 2009.
July 2, 2017 The Canadiens have signed Price to an eight-year extension through the 2025-26 season, with multiple reports indicating the deal is worth $84 million. The $10.5 million average annual value is tied with Chicago's Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews for the highest in the league, but keeps perhaps the most coveted free agent of next summer off the market. Price has proven to be worth the investment, as he's posted a league-best 2.09 goals-against average over the past three seasons.
April 23, 2017 Price stopped 20 of 22 shots Saturday as the Canadiens lost 3-1 to the Rangers and were eliminated in Game 6 of their first-round series. Price lost the last three games behind a 2.19 GAA as Montreal totaled four goals in those contests.

Montreal now trails the series 3-2 as it heads back to Madison Square Garden. Fortunately for the Habs, it's a venue where Price has shined in the recent past. He's 6-1-0 with a minuscule 1.19 goals-against average over his last seven starts there, with the lone loss the Canadiens' 2-1 defeat in Tuesday's Game 4.
April 19, 2017 Price made 30 saves in Montreal's 2-1 loss on Tuesday as the Rangers evened the first-round series at two games apiece. Price has been terrific throughout the series, posting a 1.65 GAA and .942 save percentage. It's simply a continuation of his strong close to the regular season. In his last 20 starts overall, Price has won 14 of them while posting a 1.67 GAA.
April 17, 2017 Price helped the Canadiens take a 2-1 lead in their opening-round playoff series with the Rangers with a 20-save effort in Sunday's 3-1 win. Price wasn't tested much on a night where the Rangers generated few quality offensive chances. Still, he owns a rock-solid 1.44 goals-against average and a .944 save percentage for the series and happens to be one of the best goaltenders in the world.
April 12, 2017 Price stopped 29 of 30 shots Wednesday in a 2-0 loss to the Rangers in Game 1. Price is 2-5-0 with an uninspiring .908 save percentage in his last seven playoff starts.
April 6, 2017 Price stopped 28 shots in a 2-1 loss to the Sabres on Wednesday. An incredible stretch for Price continues. He has a .945 save percentage over his last 14 starts, and the Canadiens are looking to be quite the tough out come playoff time.

March 29, 2017 Price continued his stellar stretch with a 27-save effort in the Canadiens' 4-1 victory over Dallas on Tuesday. The 2015 Hart Trophy winner may be picking up a few more MVP votes by winning 10 of his last 12 starts for the Atlantic Division-leading Habs. Price has yielded one goal or less eight times over that period, during which he's posted a 1.48 GAA and a .946 save percentage.
March 25, 2017 Price bounced back from a shaky last start to deliver 31 saves in Saturday's 3-1 victory over Ottawa. Price, who stopped just 19 of 22 shots in Thursday's loss to Carolina, has now beaten the rival Senators three times in a span of eight days and has yielded just five goals in those wins. He's been pretty good against most everyone else as well, sporting a 9-2-0 record and a sparkling 1.53 goals-against average over his last 11 starts.
March 24, 2017 Price stopped 19 of 22 shots in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Hurricanes. Price has now allowed three goals in three of his last four games after surrendering two or fewer in each of his previous nine. The Habs host the Senators again on Saturday. They swept a home-and-home last weekend, with Price allowing three goals in Ottawa and stopping 30 of 31 shots in the home matchup.
March 22, 2017 Price's is expected to start Thursday night. Price was given the night off Tuesday after playing back-to-back games over the weekend against Ottawa. Habs coach Claude Julien didn't sound overly concerned about Price's injury.

March 15, 2017 Price, playing in his 500th NHL game, stopped 20 of 23 shots for the Canadiens in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Blackhawks. Only Patrick Roy (551) and Jacques Plante (556) have played more games between the pipes for Montreal than Price, who had a 0.99 GAA in winning his previous six starts. The Habs are now off until Saturday when they visit Ottawa, and Price has allowed at least four goals in five of his last six vs. the Sens.
March 13, 2017 Price made 24 saves in the Canadiens' 4-1 victory over the Oilers on Sunday. What a dominant stretch for Price during his six-game winning streak. He's posted a .964 save percentage, only allowing two goals once.
March 9, 2017 Price (flu) will not play Thursday in Calgary. Price has been outstanding with a 0.98 goals-against average while winning his last five starts.
March 8, 2017 Price made 27 saves and Paul Byron scored in overtime as Montreal defeated the Canucks 2-1 on Tuesday night. Price has been outstanding with a 0.98 goals-against average while winning his last five starts. Of course, he should be in your lineup.

March 4, 2017 Price continued his surge with 26 saves in a 4-1 win over the Rangers on Saturday. Price is 4-0-0 with a .964 save percentage and a shutout in his last four starts, and has a 1.40 GAA in his past seven games. He's 15-5-1 with a .940 save percentage lifetime against the Rangers.
March 3, 2017 Price stopped 24 shots in the Canadiens' 2-1 win over the Predators on Thursday. Price, who blanked the Blue Jackets two nights earlier, now has a 0.98 GAA in winning his last three games after going 2-6-0 with a 2.86 GAA in his previous eight.

He has a 1.39 GAA in winning his last six against the Rangers.
March 1, 2017 Price made 26 saves as Montreal beat the Blue Jackets 1-0 on Tuesday night to extend its winning streak to three games.

The Habs are in New Jersey on Monday, and Price has a 2.00 GAA in winning his last three starts against the Devils.
Feb. 21, 2017 After coming up with 28 saves - including a sprawling stop in the closing moments of overtime - Price turned back four of five skaters in the shootout to help the Canadiens to Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Rangers. Montreal's world-class goaltender appears to be out of his midseason slump, as he's stopped 58 of 62 shots over his last two starts. Price was 6-10-3 with an uncharacteristic 3.20 goals-against average over his previous 19 assignments.
Feb. 18, 2017 Price made 30 saves on 32 shots for the Canadiens in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Jets. Price has lost five of his last six starts and had yielded four goals in three straight outings prior to Saturday. The Canadiens are next at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday, and Price stopped 29 of 33 shots in his only matchup with the Rangers this season, a 5-4 win on Jan. 14. He has won six in a row in the series behind a 1.05 GAA.
Feb. 10, 2017 Though able to halt a personal three-game losing streak, Price again wasn't in top form in stopping 21 of 25 shots in Montreal's overtime win at Arizona on Thursday. That's been the case with Price for a while now. After compiling a sparkling 18-4-2 record and a 1.87 goals-against average over his first 24 starts, the 2014-15 NHL MVP is 6-9-3 with a 3.16 GAA and an .897 save percentage in 18 starts since. The Canadiens will be keeping their fingers crossed that he can get straightened out come playoff time.
Feb. 8, 2017 Price allowed two goals in the first 2:25 and would stop just 22 of 26 shots in Tuesday's 4-2 loss at Colorado. Price has lost nine of his last 12 starts, recording a 3.19 GAA with an .898 save percentage. He's lost all five of his road games in that span, surrendering 17 goals.
Feb. 4, 2017 Price stopped 27 shots in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Capitals. Price dropped to 3-7-1 with a 3.11 GAA in his last 11 starts.

The veteran goalie is also 0-5-1 with a 3.35 GAA against the Oilers dating to 2009.
Feb. 2, 2017 Price stopped 21 of 23 shots for the Atlantic Division-leading Canadiens in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Flyers. Price dropped to 3-6-1 in his last 10 starts. The Canadiens host the Capitals on Saturday afternoon and Price is 6-11-4 with a 3.09 GAA in his career against Washington - including the playoffs.

Jan. 26, 2017 Price recorded 39 saves on 42 shots in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Islanders. The timing of the All-Star break seems to be perfect for Price, who is 3-5-1 with a 3.34 GAA since Jan. 7.
Jan. 25, 2017 Price returned to form with a sharp 30-save effort in Tuesday's 5-1 victory over Calgary. Price was two seconds away from his first shutout since Nov. 12 in a performance that suggests he may be out of his month-long slump. The usually excellent goaltender had lost eight of his previous 11 starts prior to Tuesday's outing, posting a subpar 3.42 goals-against average and .887 save percentage during that tough stretch.
Jan. 21, 2017 Price was better with 35 saves, ut still allowed three goals in Saturday's OT loss to Buffalo. Price has surrendered three or more goals in nine of his last 11 starts, going 3-5-3 with a 3.42 GAA and an .887 save percentage.
Jan. 18, 2017 Price was shaky again in a 4-1 loss to Pittsburgh on Wednesday, stopping 22 of 26 shots. Price has allowed three or more goals eight times in 10 games. He's 1-4-0 with an ugly .859 save percentage in his last five contests.
Jan. 16, 2017 Price stopped 19 of 20 shots Monday but was the tough-luck loser in a 1-0 defeat to the Red Wings. Price was sharp after having a 5.01 GAA and .844 save percentage in his previous three games but was saddled with his third loss in four contests. The Canadiens host the Penguins on Wednesday, and Price stopped 37 of 41 shots in a 4-3 overtime loss at Pittsburgh on New Year's Eve.
Jan. 14, 2017 Price wasn't particularly sharp again and allowed four goals on 33 shots in Saturday's win over the Rangfers.

Jan. 12, 2017 Price made 17 saves but allowed seven goals in Thursday's blowout loss to the Wild. He was taunted by the ''Sieve!'' chant after Nino Niederreiter's second score. The last time Price allowed seven goals was against Pittsburgh on March 2, 2013. He fell to 9-7-3 in his last 19 starts and has allowed 26 goals over his last seven appearances.
Jan. 8, 2017 Price made 33 saves to help the Canadiens to Saturday's 5-3 victory at Toronto. After permitting 11 goals during a three-game losing streak to end December, Price has stopped 55 of 59 shots to win his first two starts of the new year. He's getting closer to regaining the form that's seen him compile a stellar 20-5-4 record and a 2.06 GAA for the season.
Dec. 31, 2016 Price had 37 saves but was dealt a third straight loss in Montreal's 4-3 overtime defeat at Pittsburgh on Saturday. The usually sturdy netminder is undeniably in a slump at the moment, as he's allowed three or more goals in all three losses and owns a subpar .887 save percentage during the skid. Chances are Price will turn in around relatively soon, however.
Dec. 29, 2016 Price stopped 26 of 30 shots in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Lightning. Price has allowed seven goals in his last two games after surrendering two or fewer in five of his previous six. With the Habs completing the second half of a back-to-back at Florida on Thursday, Price will get the night off.
Dec. 21, 2016 Price only faced 13 shots and stopped 12 of them as the Canadiens downed the sluggish Ducks 5-1 on Tuesday night. Price has allowed one goal in each of his last two games after giving up four on 18 shots before getting pulled against the Sharks on Friday. That hiccup against San Jose was only his second regulation home loss in 18 home games (14-2-2).
Dec. 18, 2016 Jeff Petry scored the go-ahead goal and Price stopped 20 shots to record his 250th career win as the Montreal Canadiens defeated the Washington Capitals 2-1 on Saturday night at Verizon Center. Price was slated to sit out Saturday's game, but was pulled Friday night after allowing four goals on 18 shots in less than 27 minutes in a 4-2 loss to San Jose and coach Michel Therrien opted to start him against Washington.

Jan. 8, 2012 Price made 23 saves during Saturday's 3-1 win over Tampa Bay. Price has won back-to-back starts and three of his last five, and he could be turning a corner following a disappointing start to the season.

Dec. 30, 2011 Price made 18 saves in a 4-3 loss at Tampa Bay on Thursday night. Price is 1-5-0 with a 3.72 GAA in his last six starts so fantasy owners should look elsewhere for quality goaltending.

Price has a 3.22 GAA in losing his last three starts after going 3-1-0 with a 0.99 GAA and a pair of shutouts in his previous four games.

Oct. 14, 2011 Price stopped 17 shots in Thursday's 4-1 loss to Calgary. Price got his 99th career win Sunday in Winnipeg. He'll have to wait to get No. 100.

2018-02-18 analysis After he got shelled for five goals by the Coyotes on Thursday, coach Claude Julien tried to give Price some extra time off to clear his head, but Antti Niemi's poor performance to begin the game forced Price into action. He now has an .870 save percentage over his last four games, and with the Habs seemingly headed for the draft lottery and in no position to get him wins with their offense, Price
2018-02-18 update Price replaced Antti Niemi midway through the first period Saturday, stopping 25 of 28 shots in a 6-3 loss to the Golden Knights.
2018-02-15 analysis Price gets the start against a team that ranks last in the NHL in goals scored (2.4 goals per game) and one that he owns. In nine starts against the Coyotes, Price is a perfect 9-0-0 with a 1.76 GAA and .938 save percentage.
2018-02-15 update Price will start Thursday night against the Coyotes, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.
2018-02-11 analysis Price hasn't been his masterful self this season and is 1-4 over his last five starts. However, he gets a start at home Saturday. His splits indicate better results at the Bell Centre (11-7-4, 2.70 GAA) than away from it (4-13-0, 3.28). He was beaten only once in the shootout, but that was enough as Pekka Rinne shut down the Habs shooters completely. Price now has only one win in five games since the All-Star break, but his 2.19 GAA and .924 save percentage during that stretch suggests the lack of results has more to do with the play of the team in front of him.
2018-02-11 update Price has been named the starter for Saturday night's home game against the Predators, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports. Price stopped 30 of 32 shots in Saturday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Predators.
2018-02-10 analysis Price hasn't been his masterful self this season and is 1-4 over his last five starts. However, he gets a start at home Saturday. His splits indicate better results at the Bell Centre (11-7-4, 2.70 GAA) than away from it (4-13-0, 3.28).
2018-02-10 update Price has been named the starter for Saturday night's home game against the Predators, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.
2018-02-09 analysis Price has seemingly turned a corner recently, allowing two or fewer goals in each of his last three starts. The Flyers have not surpassed three goals in any of their last 10 games, providing Price with a decent opportunity to thrive once again in the matchup. With just two wins through his past 10 starts, Price's forgettable season continues. He's sporting a disappointing 15-20-4 record, .906 save percentage and 2.95 GAA for the campaign, and with Montreal in a clear free fall, it's difficult to view him as a reliable option against the majority of opponents. It's also possible things could get worse with Montreal potential sellers leading into the tra
2018-02-09 update Price will guard the goal Thursday against the Flyers in Philadelphia, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports. Price saved just 23 of 27 shots during Thursday's 5-3 loss to Philadelphia.
2018-02-08 analysis Price has seemingly turned a corner recently, allowing two or fewer goals in each of his last three starts. The Flyers have not surpassed three goals in any of their last 10 games, providing Price with a decent opportunity to thrive once again in the matchup.
2018-02-08 update Price will guard the goal Thursday against the Flyers in Philadelphia, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
2018-02-04 analysis It's been one of the poorest seasons of Price's career, but he has managed to string together three strong games. Price owns a .942 save percentage and a 1.70 GAA in the last three contests. This is his best three-game stretch since November, so it will be interesting to see if Price can build off of it moving forward.
2018-02-04 update Price allowed one goal on 26 shots in a 4-1 victory over the Senators on Sunday.
2018-02-02 analysis After three straight losses, Price will take the back half of the Habs' back-to-back versus Anaheim and Ottawa on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. The British Columbia native is currently sporting the worst GAA of his career (2.97) and has been disappointing at best. The banged-up Senators might be just what the netminder needs to get his season back on track.
2018-02-02 update Price is expected to be between the pipes against the Senators on Sunday, John Lu of TSN.ca reports.
2018-02-01 analysis Price has been downright awful of late, as he is 1-4-2 in his previous seven outings, including a 3.42 GAA and .879 save percentage. The netminder will likely face a heavy workload from the Canes, who are averaging 34.3 shots (fourth highest in the league). Montreal is already on the outside looking in for a playoff spot and unless Price can turn his game around, the team will be eliminated from p
2018-02-01 update Price will tend the twine for Thursday's matchup with Carolina.
2018-01-31 analysis Price was yanked from his last start after surrendering six goals on 29 shots in his last start against the Hurricanes, having now lost three of his last four starts between the pipes. He will attempt to close out January with a nice showing on the road against the Blues, looking to stymie a Blues attack notching 2.80 goals per game this month. The former Vezina Trophy winner has now lost six of his past seven starts, and Price's 14-18-4 record, .905 save percentage and 3.00 GAA for the campaign land him placed among the biggest fantasy busts of the 2017-18 season. There's time for Price and the Canadiens to turn their year around, but things also appear to be snowballing in Montreal. Fantasy owners shouldn't be afraid to be selective wi
2018-01-31 update Price will rough up the visiting crease Tuesday against the Blues, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports. Price stopped 28 of 30 shots during Tuesday's 3-1 loss to St. Louis.
2018-01-30 analysis Price was yanked from his last start after surrendering six goals on 29 shots in his last start against the Hurricanes, having now lost three of his last four starts between the pipes. He will attempt to close out January with a nice showing on the road against the Blues, looking to stymie a Blues attack notching 2.80 goals per game this month.
2018-01-30 update Price will rough up the visiting crease Tuesday against the Blues, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
2018-01-26 analysis Price's home/road splits reveal some major differences that favor him when he's on home ice. Entering Thursday's action, he owns a 10-6-4 record with a 2.61 GAA and .913 save percentage on home ice. He should have a good opportunity to improve those numbers Thursday against a Carolina club owning a minus-10 goal differential and just 2.50 goals per game in January. This was a back-and-forth affair all night, which was spoiled when Price allowed the game-winning goal just 10 seconds after Montreal had tied the game midway through the third period. Price has now alarmingly allowed 22 goals over his last six games and owns just 14 wins in 35 appearances this year, so owners still relying on the 30-year-old may want to explore other options, if possible, when pl
2018-01-26 update Price will start between the pipes Thursday against the Hurricanes, Sean Farrell of NHL.com reports. Price was lit up for six goals on 29 shots in a 6-5 loss to visiting Carolina.
2018-01-25 analysis Price's home/road splits reveal some major differences that favor him when he's on home ice. Entering Thursday's action, he owns a 10-6-4 record with a 2.61 GAA and .913 save percentage on home ice. He should have a good opportunity to improve those numbers Thursday against a Carolina club owning a minus-10 goal differential and just 2.50 goals per game in January.
2018-01-25 update Price will start between the pipes Thursday against the Hurricanes, Sean Farrell of NHL.com reports.
2018-01-24 analysis Price has dropped his last four starts while allowing three goals or more in each of the games, as the general trend of this off season for him continues. The 2014-15 Vezina Trophy winner can't seem to get it together and may find it difficult to get on track against a surprisingly potent Colorado team that has won 10 straight games, scoring three goals or more in nine of them. Price entered with four consecutive losses and an underwhelming .880 save percentage and 3.43 GAA during the skid, so this was a strong bounce-back showing. It's also worth noting that Colorado entered with a 10-game winning streak. There's been a lot holding Price back this year, as he played through chronic fatigue early this season before sustaining a lower-body injury that cost him 10 games in
2018-01-24 update Price will patrol the blue paint for Tuesday night's contest against the Avalanche, John Lu of TSN reports. Price saved 20 of 22 shots during Tuesday's 4-2 win over Colorado.
2018-01-23 analysis Price has dropped his last four starts while allowing three goals or more in each of the games, as the general trend of this off season for him continues. The 2014-15 Vezina Trophy winner can't seem to get it together and may find it difficult to get on track against a surprisingly potent Colorado team that has won 10 straight games, scoring three goals or more in nine of them.
2018-01-23 update Price will patrol the blue paint for Tuesday night's contest against the Avalanche, John Lu of TSN reports.
2018-01-22 analysis That condition certainly helps explain Price's irregular performance early in the season when he was 3-7-1 with a 3.77 GAA and an .877 save percentage before suffering a lower-body injury Nov. 2. Price was unable to respond quickly enough after practices and games, so he sought out a nutritionist, who determined, after taking blood samples, the goalie had deficiencies in vitamins D and B12. Since
2018-01-22 update Price suffered from chronic fatigue at the beginning of the season, per Eric Engels of SportsNet, who cited a report from TVA Sports (French).
2018-01-20 analysis This will be Price's third crack at solving the Bruins in a week's span. He pushed aside 29 of 32 shots for an overtime loss against them in Boston last Saturday, and then succumbed to the rivals in regulation on the road four days later, yielding three goals on 31 shots. Price has been out of sorts for most of the season -- he owns a 13-15-4 record, 2.96 GAA and .908 save percentage through 32 ga
2018-01-20 update Price will be Saturday's home starter against the Bruins, NHL.com reports.
2018-01-18 analysis Price will look to avenge his overtime loss to the B's from Saturday, when he yielded three goals on 32 shots at home. The 2016 World Cup of Hockey gold medalist is still operating with a save percentage that's near a career low at .908, and Price's fantasy owners have been let down by the fact that he's only pitched one shutout this campaign. You likely wouldn't want to sit a guy like Price in se The Habs staked him to a 1-0 lead inside the first minute of the game, but it was all Boston after that, and there wasn't much Price could do to stem the tide. It was the third straight game in which the 30-year-old netminder has allowed three goals or more, and Price -- who has been streaky all season -- seems to be slipping into another rut.
2018-01-18 update Price will tend twine against host Boston on Wednesday, NHL.com reports. Price turned aside 28 of 31 shots in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Bruins.

2018-01-17 update Price will tend twine against host Boston on Wednesday, NHL.com reports.
2018-01-16 analysis Since coming back from his lower-body injury Nov. 25, Price has reaffirmed his status as a workhorse starting 19 of the last 20 games, putting up an impressive .929 save percentage and 2.38 GAA throughout the span. However, he'll have a tough test awaiting him in the Bell Centre, as the Islanders rank second in the NHL for goals scored per game (3.41), and have lit the lamp five and seven times re This was a tough pill to shallow for the Habs and fantasy owners. Montreal registered 32 more shots on net than the Islanders and still lost. Price's 13-14-4 record, .908 save percentage and 2.95 GAA land him among the biggest busts to this point of the season, and with little reason to project a significant change in fortunes for the Canadiens, owners could continue to be stuck between a rock and
2018-01-16 update Price will guard the cage in Monday's tilt against the Islanders, John Lu of TSN.ca reports. Price allowed five goals on just 24 shots during Monday's 5-4 loss to the Islanders.

2018-01-14 analysis Price has emerged from a rough patch during his last two starts, allowing only three combined goals while posting a spectacular.963 save percentage. He will attempt to extend that run to three straight solid performances Saturday versus a Bruins squad that had a four-game winning streak snapped last Sunday against the Penguins. The loss snapped a two-game winning streak for Mr. Price. The winner came off Brad Marchand's stick -- he came in fast and forced Price to back-up fast, leaving the five-hole wide open. The loss snapped a two-game winning streak. Two games isn't much of a streak and therein lies the problem -- Price's game remains shaky heading into the second half. He'll rebound at some point; fingers crossed it'

2018-01-07 analysis Price has been battling an illness this weekend but clearly he's feeling fine and ready to go for Sunday. Over his last five games, Price is 1-4-0 despite a solid 2.40 GAA and .933 save percentage. The 30-year-old netminder hasn't been his usual self this season, but remains a top fantasy goalie option. After getting out to a 2-0 lead, Price yielded the next two goals to bring the Canucks back into it, but from there, Price was much better, shutting the door for the victory. He broke his four-game losing streak Thursday and has stopped 78 of the last 81 shots (.963 save percentage) he's faced. It's obviously just two games, but after such a rough first half, owners will take any good signs from P

2018-01-06 analysis Price still has a day to recover from the illness, so it wouldn't be surprising if the team waits until Sunday to announce the starting goaltender. If Price is unable to go, the team may be forced to add another netminder from AHL to back up would-be starter Antti Niemi.

2018-01-05 analysis As usual, there's a heavy slate of games -- 11 to be exact -- scheduled Thursday, but this one qualifies as a "can't miss" since Price, who's undeniably in an elite class of tenders, reportedly will be countered by Andrei Vasilevskiy, a 23-year-old currently leading the league in wins (26), GAA (1.95), save percentage (0.937) and shutouts (six). Price will be facing shots from the league's top off Putting the Habs on his back appears to be what it takes for Price to land in the win column. After all, despite posting an above-average .919 save percentage through his prior four starts, he took the loss in each. However, he definitely hasn't been his elite self for the majority of the season, as evidenced by his .910 mark for the campaign. Fantasy owners should be encouraged by this showing, b

2018-01-02 analysis Price has played pretty well recently, maintaining a .931 save percentage through his last three starts, but he's posted a highly disappointing 0-3-0 record over that span due to a severe lack of offensive support from his teammates. The 30-year-old netminder will look to stay sharp and snap his three-game losing streak in a home matchup with a Sharks team that's averaging 2.50 goals per game on t

2017-12-31 analysis The venerable puck stopper defeated the Panthers with a 26-save outing a little over two months ago, and one has to admire his overall track record against the Cats. Price has gone 11-4-3 with a sparkling 1.81 GAA and .938 save percentage against them over 18 career appearances. He's been too successful over the years to come cheap in daily fantasy settings, but he very well could be worth the hef Price has lost three games since Christmas, but to be fair, his mates have scored just two goals in that span. Price can't do it all.

2017-12-28 analysis Price will get both ends of the Habs' back-to-back coming out of the holiday break, rather than the team throwing Antti Niemi to the proverbial wolves -- i.e. Tampa Bay's high-powered offense. Despite getting handed a loss Wednesday versus Carolina, it's hard to put the blame on Price, as he made 33 of a possible 35 saves. The netminder will face a significantly tougher challenge in the Lightning,

2017-12-23 analysis This was the 11th win of the season for the celebrated backstop, who barely hung on after allowing the game's final two goals in the third period.

Price was yanked after yielding two goals in a span of 1:13 early in the second, and he's now lost three straight with 11 goals allowed.
