In 58 games this season, Price managed a 27-25-6 record with a 2.79 goals-against-average and a .909 save percentage.

He also led all league netminders in minutes played with 3,439:49 for a second consecutive season.

On Feb. 1, Price recorded his 47th career NHL shutout versus Florida to pass Ken Dryden to take sole possession of third place in team history in that category.

The 32-year-old netminder is two wins away from this 350th in his career with the Canadiens.
