While everything becomes subjective depending of which "side" we are in.....and while save% and gaa doesn't tell the whole story, that's about what we have left to look at Price's season....and by looking at it, the "stretch" people are talking about are probably only 1 or 2 nice stretchs. At best, we are talking about 1/3 of the season.
Start of season, gave only 3 goals or less for the first 8 games. Yet, in those games 2 times under .900 record. From Feb. 23 to Feb. 27, 3 awesome games...but then 7 and 5 goals given the games after. From Mar. 7 to Mar. 26, surely his best stretch, 9 games, but 3 times with a save% under .900 during that stretch. It went downhill from the last 10 games of the season. You hear people sometimes and you think that he was only bad the last 3-4 games giving him the record he has....but it started earlier than that. And in a 42-game season....that's 1/4 of the season.
But again, that's SOLELY going with the stats. Then you start remembering the style he was playing in, being way too small tortoise style all year long, on his belly way too often, giving bad goals more often than not, and it was NOT a great season. A good season...okay...but that shouldn't be his standards....
