So at the beginning of the season many people said “Carey Price will be the #1 Goalie by Christmas.”
Well here we are a week from Christmas and Carey Price is about to start his 7th straight game.
Granted, Cristobal Huet was out with a groin injury but he has been deemed fit to play and Carbonneau elects still to start Carey Price tonight.
Price’s record in those games is nothing miraculous but he did manage to string together two consecutive wins in the last two games.
Is Carbonneau just going with the hot hand or does the Carey Price stock rise enough to nudge Cristobal Huet further over to the side?
A lot depends on the game tonight. Another strong performance by Price and Carbonneau has some tough decisions to make.
