Here's an interesting tidbit about Carey Price. Remember the thread earlier about a blog post pointing out Price had been excellent 5-on-5 and only really struggled on the PK?

It's only three games, so take this with a grain of salt, results fragmentary, low sample size and everything, but still:

Carey Price's even-strength save%: .943. And that's after coming off a 7-1 blowout in his third game.

Carey Price's shorthanded save%: .714. Incidentally, that ties him with Martin Brodeur.

Think the Habs need to improve their PK coverage?

Nevermind just the PK. Price has faced the most shots in the entire NHL so far. They need to work on coverage period.

(BTW, for those who want to compare with Halak -- Halak faced one shot on the PK, and it went in. His save% is thus .000. Which is an anecdote given that it's only one shot in one penalty in one game, but isn't precisely hurting the point.)
