Craig Anderson Outplaying Carey Price

from Erin Nick at NHL.com,

Anderson has a .949 save percentage through three games, placing him third among the 16 active goaltenders playing in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. His goals-against average sits at 2.01, which ranks sixth. Meanwhile, Price finds himself 15th in both categories, with a 3.69 GAA and .879 save percentage.

Price's stats took a hit after the 6-1 loss to the Senators on Sunday -- a game in which he stayed in until the finish.

"I think it's important to hang in there with my teammates and not bail out. I think the best thing to do is fight through it," Price said.

His coach, Michel Therrien, agreed.

"I never thought about taking [Price] out," Therrien said. "The way we played, the loss, it wasn't his fault. But sometimes you've got to feel that pain together, as a team."

For his part, Price shoulders some of the burden of being down in the series.
