The days might be getting longer and evenings warmer, but who could be outside when the Montreal Canadiens were taking on the Boston Bruins this week?
Not only are the Habs the only Canadian team left in the playoffs, their goaltender is none other than Anahim Lake’s (and Williams Lake’s) very own No. 31, Carey Price.
Even the most loyal of Boston fans in the Cariboo Chilcotin surely couldn’t help but cheer Wednesday evening when Price and his teammates defeated Boston in a highly anticipated, do-or-die game seven match-up with their long-time rivals.
Price’s solid performance really shouldn’t come as that much of a surprise, though –– he truly has had an amazing year.
After all it was only a few months ago that Price was in Sochi, Russia, steering Team Canada to a gold medal victory before the entire world.
Now his National Hockey League team has advanced to the Eastern Conference Final.
The series begins this Saturday at the Bell Centre where Price and his team will face the New York Rangers after he stopped an impressive 55 of 56 shots on net in game six and seven combined against Boston.
Some say we shouldn’t jinx him by writing about it, but how could we resist?
Price is definitely in the zone to go all the way.
