That's been the narrative for a while. It was even true for a while, most notably in 2009-2010, where the Habs were arguably the worst club in the NHL at 5-on-5.

I don't think it has been true for over a year, now. But because it's been the ongoing story, well, the story keeps going on. Certainly, I'm having trouble remembering a game Price stole outright this season (whereas the Habs have had several games stolen by opposing goalies). This doesn't mean Price has been bad -- he hasn't -- but the team does not depend on goaltending nearly as much as it used to.
