Ovi and the Caps Swept by Montreal


Max Pacioretty and Troy Brouwer battle for the puck in front of the Canadiens goal, but they both lose sight of it.


The play of Carey Price was the biggest story of round one for the Montreal Canadiens. The star netminder posted three shutouts in four games as the Canadiens swept the Capitals. All of the games were fairly close with the exception of game two, where the Habs were able to pot five goals. The final two games of the series were especially close, with the Habs coming out on top in overtime both times. Gustav Nyquist scored the game winning goal in game three, and Max Pacioretty broke a scoreless tie in overtime to win game four and close the series.

Carey Price only allowed one goal in the whole series - he had a save percentage of 0.989% and a 0.24 GAA.


Game 1: 2-0 Win
Game 2: 5-0 Win

Game 3: 2-1 OT Win
Game 4: 1-0 OT Win

The Habs will face the New York Islanders in round two.
