Carey Price Montreal Canadiens

It was a magical night at the Bell Centre in Montreal when defenseman Victor Mete scored his first NHL goal in his 127th game, ending the longest goal drought to start a career in Canadiens history. What made it more magical was that Carey Price looked like the Carey Price of old, stopping 17 shots to give the Montreal Canadiens a 4-0 shutout win over the Minnesota Wild.

The shutout win for the Canadien netminder was his first of the season, the 45th of his career. Price now sits just one behind Ken Dryden for third among Montreal goalies.

Mete’s goal became the eventual game winner. He made it 1-0 at 14:37 of the first period, scoring from the slot. Joel Armia scored his 4th of the season at 17:32, making it 2-0 Montreal. Nick Suzuki scored at 19:23 to give the Habs a 3 goal lead after the first period. Brendan Gallagher rounded out the scoring at 12:40 of the 3rd period.

Montreal improves to 3-2-2 for the season while the Minnesota Wild fall to a dismal 1-6-0.
