More Than Just a Routine Save

by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens

If you were under the impression that Carey Price’s save on Dennis Wideman at 17:06 of the second period of Saturday night’s game was nothing more than a routine stop, you’d be wrong. With his save on the Capitals’ defenseman, Price moved ahead of José Théodore in the Canadiens record books by making his 1837th save of 2010-11.


Here are the top 5 performances by a goaltender in that category since the statistic was introduced in 1976-77.
