Canadiens' Price: 'I didn't play well enough for us to win this series'
There might not be anyone more critical about their own play than Carey Price.
Following the Montreal Canadiens Game 6 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning, which marked their dismissal from the postseason, the Canadiens goaltender admitted he felt responsible for the team's loss in the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
"I didn’t play well enough for us to win the series," Price told reporters. "We lost a lot of tight games where I needed to make that one more save."
The Canadiens lost Games 1 and 3 by 2-1 scores, likely the games Price is referring to. The 27-year-old finished the postseason with a .920 save percentage and a 2.23 goals-against average.
