Carey Price, Cow Testicles, And The Big Hollywood Blockbuster February 27, 2008

price.jpgplante.jpgcow.jpgBob Gainey must have balls like a cow for dealing the more experienced Christobal Huet and deciding on young, 20 year old Carey Price as his starting netminder heading into the playoffs.

But in Price’s very first start as the uncontested number 1 goalie for the Montreal Canadiens, he allowed only one goal as the team trounced Atlanta 5-1. This is the way the script should be written. This will be a chapter in the book that will come out someday about young Price, the Habs 21th century version of Jacques Plante, with the theme, “Young Goalie Given Top Job. And Comes Through In Dramatic Fashion.” 

Imagine if the score was reversed. Price has already this year dealt with shaky confidence, and a big, lop-sided loss might have sent him to the asylum. And Montreal fans, including me, might have tarred and feathered Bob Gainey.

Montreal has let in far too many goals lately, so tonight, allowing only one, is reason to feel good. And along with the book, if a movie is someday made about the dramatic events of this day revolving around the Gainey, Price, and Christobal Huet saga, I’m hoping to play Red Fisher.

Good start, but it’s only just begun. Next up – in Buffalo Friday night, and then back home Saturday for a huge clash with New Jersey. Hey, what am I saying? They’re all huge clashes.

And one last thing. Ottawa lost 5-0 the other night to Toronto, and 4-0 tonight to Boston. What’s up with that? Could it be that Montreal had too many goalies, and Ottawa has none?
