Poor guy can't get shutouts every game, seems it's the only way we would win unless of course we can't score and lose in a SO.
Carey Price stole the guy against Buffalo for example, but he was the only one that showed up. This season hasn't been easy for all, but to blame Carey is not right. Guy has played very well and at times has also had a tough stretch
When was the last time he stole a game for us? How many times has he stole one this season?
The team hasn't really given him much to steal. Back in November he had 2 shutouts in a row 4-0 against the Canes and again 4-0 against the Rangers followed by a great performance against the Bruins but lost any way 1-0.
Didn't we have something like 22 or 23 odd goal losses this far? If you see it that way, then Carey Price has given us a chance to win in almost every single game, but our offence and powerplay has mostly let us down.
Even at the best of times his style never gives you the impression he's "stealing" the game, he plays very calm, positionally sound and within himself. When he's making big saves, it usually means he's off and moving around too much.
As for him stealing games, in the games he's won this year he has a 1.45 GAA and like a .950 SV%, I'm sure a few of those we didn't quite deserve to win.
He hasn't been great this year, like he was last year but he's been good. It's unfortunate the team is so awful.
Price is an extremely "smooth" goaltender. Most people seem to think that when a goalie steals a game, it means he's flopping like a fish in the crease all the time. But Price is always making smooth movements across his crease and plays far more of a "positional" game.
You will never really see Price flopping around. Doesn't mean he isn't stealing games though. There have been many games where we get shelled for a while and Price holds the fort, even though he doesn't necessarily flop around to do so. That's him stealing a game. The game against Toronto is a pretty good example of that.
