Carey Price is unconscious, should Mike Smith be a buyout candidate?, and why isn't John Klingberg generating Calder buzz?
Let's begin with the Washington Capitals and the Montreal Canadiens, who played to a 0-0 draw through 60 minutes before Max Pacioretty gave the Habs an extra point with an overtime goal.
Pacioretty's tally, his 23rd goal of the year, gave Canadiens goaltender Carey Price his fourth shutout of the season. The Olympic gold medal winning netminder has been outrageously good over the past two months, and has managed a .949 save percentage in 19 games since December 1st. That's the best mark for any goaltender with more than five games played (only Chicago Blackhawks third-stringer Scott Darling has been better overall, but in only four appearances).
Price is second in the entire league in wins, second in save percentage, third in goals against average
