Here's an interesting fact: you hardly ever win playoff games without scoring at least three goals.

Montreal scored three goals once against Ottawa. That was the game they won.

I believe there was only four games won by less than three goals in this post-season that wasn't the incredibly low scoring St. Louis/Los Angeles series.

In other words, Price might have not ever been blown out and Montreal will would have lost the series through 2-1 games.

I mean, you can make up this magical momentum where Montreal is suddenly going to start crashing the net instead of taking shots on the far wing just because Carey Price is stopping more shots but hopefully we can live in a real world.

Montreal tried to hold on tight to a 2-0 lead into a third period and Therrien even benched Galchenyuk on the game. Again, it's rare to win games with less than three goals scored. And what did Montreal do? Only scored three goals once.

Every discussion about Price forgets that he's just one player on a team.
