I would have like to see how Halak and Carey compared on penalty kills but the required data seems difficult to gather.
Price had more games against teams in the top 20 and seemed to be more successful against better ranking teams but had trouble with the bottom 10.
Halak played teams in the bottom 10 almost twice as much than Price and was very solid with a save % over 0.92 in 14 out of 16 games. However, against the top 20, Halak seems slightly less efficient with a save % under 0.9 in 9 out of 22 compared to 9 out of 26 for Price.
Mostly, Price has taken part in games where his team was more widely out shot (in terms of shot differential) than Halak, especially against the top 10 teams.
On average, compared to Halak, the Canadiens scored fewer goals with Price in net. This is especially true if you look at games against bottom 10 teams, there is a significant difference.
Compared to Halak, Price has lost more games with a save % over 0.92. On the other hand Halak seemed more “lucky” with more wins with a save % under 0.9.
Halak had a save % over 0.95 in 16 games of the regular season.
I think you just may have made all hell break loose.
Edit: Btw, using your statistics, which may be flawed for one thing, what if a goalie gets pulled? how many shots do they take while the other is in net or whatever?
That aside. The shot difference for while Halak was in net is unofficially -110, and for price, -178.
