Canadiens are 7-0-0 after Carey Price shuts out Blues


Much has been made of how the Montreal Canadiens don't rely quite as much on star goalie Carey Price this season, but for a period and a half against the St. Louis Blues he had to be the man.
Price made a season-high 38 saves, including 17 in the opening period, to post his second shutout in the last three games as the Canadiens downed the visiting Blues 3-0 on Tuesday night. Montreal extended its club-record winning streak to start the season to seven games.

We had a little bit of a slow first period, but being able to come out with a lead, we were able to regroup in the first intermission. Carey Price told the media.

The save of the game was a spectacular glove effort early in the second frame on Blues star Vladimir Tarasenko, who was held off the scoresheet for the first time this season.

I actually wound up overplaying it a little bit, so I kind of got a little bit lucky being able to get a piece of it, Price said. But any time you can come up with the right save at the right time it's helpful.

The Blues dominated the opening period but the Canadiens came out with the lead on a goal from captain Max Pacioretty. Off-season signing Alex Semin opened his Montreal account in the second frame and Torrey Mitchell scored in the third on Jake Allen, who made 33 saves.
The Blues (5-2-0) ended a four-game winning streak. But they finished a six-game road trip with a solid four wins and a pair of defeats.

We lost, but our start was really good, said Blues forward Alex Steen. We had great legs. We made plays. We got great looks on Carey. We just didn't have that last finish.

When do you think the Montreal Canadiens' streak will end?
