Aside from Carey, do we have a "star"?

With Carey, you look to him to make that big, important save when the score is tied or you're up by a goal with a minute left in the game

You look for it but does it really happen ?
Habs were one of the worst team at keeping leads last season. We scored the first goal with regularity and squandered a ton of leads in the third. That's certainly not all Price's fault, but part of it is and I dunno that you can say he was making the big saves with the score tied or one up late in a game.
