Raleigh, N.C. — After being beaten several times in succession during a shootout drill, Price took out his frustration on the goalposts, delivering three or four whacks before his stick broke. He then grabbed a new stick and, over the next five minutes, he surrendered only one goal. There were only seven players on the ice and this might have been a day for Price to relax if he hadn’t been coming off his two worst performances of the season. There was a 7-6 overtime loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins Saturday and a 6-3 defeat on Long Island Tuesday. The final Islanders’ goal went into an empty net, which means Price has surrendered 12 goals in two games.
