I've never been a Price groupie. Liked him, never loved him. And yeah - I also wondered why he so rarely 'stole games' for us.

But this year he's done exactly that. Not 'stole', as in he rescued the team after they were outplayed -- because as others have noted, we haven't been outplayed much -- but he HAS rescued games with saves that very, very other goalies would have made. He HAS shown laser-beam focus by stopping pucks through a mess of bodies. He HAS done a lot more than just 'not lose'. He HAS won games by being in position to keep the puck out of the net when most others would've let them in.

Price doesn't flail or swat or flop around. He's cool and composed. If he was a Starship captain he'd be Patrick Stewart, not William Shatner.
