Carey Price Still Has a Lot to Prove with the Montreal Canadiens

Daniel ArouchianSenior Analyst IJanuary 30, 2009

Carey Price has a lot to prove!

During last night's game the Panthers scored five goals in 35 shots on him! Since his return from his injury Price is 0-3 allowing 15 goals.

"It's been a tough trip," Price said after angrily tossing his equipment bag across the Canadiens dressing room. "You go from the best time of your life (playing in the NHL All-Star Game) to the worst time of your life."

Did Carey Price do the right thing by going to the All-Star Game? Some would argue that he should have taken the time to rest.

Price is not the only player that didn't play well last night. But Guy Carbonneau is not letting Price get away with it either!

"If you're going to win games, you need your best players to be your best players and that includes the goalie," said Carbonneau, who was at a loss to explain his team's performance.

There's way too much pressure on this kid. The team and fans alike are asking too much from him.
