Carey Price hasn't been nearly as good as he should. In just 10 games this year, he has a goals against average of 3.64 and a save percentage of .883, which is much lower than his usual numbers. Many people believe he is going to turn things around very soon, such as former Habs' forward Alex Tanguay.
In an interview with 91,9FM today, Tanguay said it is just a matter of time before Price plays as well as he has been over the past few seasons:
"I am expecting to see the "real" Carey Price on Thursday, against the Minnesota Wild. He will make a strong comeback."
A few minutes before, Tanguay was asked whether he believes the Canadiens play differently depending on if Price or Al Montoya is in front of the net. And he is convinced they do:
"When I used to play with Patrick Roy, it didn't really matter if we played well or not: we knew we had a chance to win because of him. It is almost the same thing with Carey Price, he is directly responsible for a number of wins over the past few seasons. You know you can make a little bit more mistakes because you know he's going to be there for you. That certainly helps a little."
Carey Price is going to be the Canadiens' netminder against the Minnesota Wild, on Thursday. Do you think the Habs are going to win this one?
