Before Carey Price would get to talking about his 250 career win, he had some ‘splainin’ to do about what happened the night before.
In Friday’s tilt versus the Sharks, Price was pulled by Montreal Canadiens head coach Michel Therrien after allowing four goals.
The Habs’ star netminder was none too pleased about getting the hook and showed his displeasure as he stormed off to the locker room; throwing a not so subtle stare down at his coach on his way.
He declined to speak with the media after the game.
Kyle Palmieri found out just how protective Carey Price is over his crease.
The New Jersey Devils forward danced around Jeff Petry on the way to the net. Palmieri appears to be trying to control the puck when he collides with Price.
The normally calm, cool Price turns green (under his mask) and goes full Hulk on Palmieri by decking him while still on the ice. You can practically hear the Montreal faithful yelling ‘FINISH HIM’ – or ‘FINIS-LE’ for the francophone – as Price goes back from a few more slugs on Palmieri.
Price used his blocker to pummel Palmieri and that could have cost him.
