BOSTON -- Carey Price never has been a man of many words.
The Montreal Canadiens goaltender usually lets his play do the talking, and it's been talking a lot this season.
But when that season was on the line, when the Canadiens were 20 minutes away from going to the Eastern Conference Final for the second time in five seasons if they could hold on to a one-goal lead against the best third-period team in the NHL, Price decided it was time for him to speak with his words.
They had a big impact on his teammates.
Price addressed the Canadiens dressing room during the second intermission of their 3-1 win against the Boston Bruins in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference Second Round series Wednesday, then proceeded to make eight of his 29 saves in the third period.
"It wasn't much," Price said. "It was just a reminder to live in the moment. That's all I really said. That's the truth. At this time of year, it's easy to let your emotions get carried away, especially in a situation like tonight. I thought our guys … I don't even think they really needed for me to say anything.
"I thought we were a really composed group the whole series."
