No Excuses From Carey Price

from Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette,

Carey Price was a man of few words Thursday night, but he didn’t need many words to sum up the Canadiens’ 6-5 overtime loss to the Buffalo Sabres. “Let’s cut the chase, I wasn’t very good,” Price said to kick off a post-game scrum that lasted 56 seconds. Price, who is trying to bounce back from the worst season of his career, has given up at least four goals in each of his last four starts and his numbers aren’t very good.

After Thursday’s debacle, he has a 3.07 goals-against average and an .892 save percentage. Price wasn’t looking for any excuses. When asked about defensive breakdowns in front of him, he replied: “I’m not playing as well as I did earlier.” And when he was asked whether changes in the equipment contributed to the fall-off in his play, he said: “No. it’s all upstairs. I’ll figure it out.”
