Carey Price

Montreal Canadiens

Carey Price allowed eight goals on 29 shots as the Canadiens fell 8-2 to the Anaheim Ducks Friday night.

Fantasy Impact: It was just the fifth time in their 26-year history the Ducks scored eight goals. Price has allowed 15 goals in four March starts. Friday night was a fluke, but Price will need to start playing better if the Habs want to grab a Wild Card spot.

The Canadiens staked Carey Price with a 3-0 lead Saturday but would go on to lose 6-3 to Toronto.

Fantasy Impact: Price now has just two wins in his last nine starts, a stretch in which he's allowed 19 goals. It might be wise to ride a backup for a game or two while he works through the funk.

Fantasy Impact: This news comes as a relief to both Habs fans and fantasy owners. Price indicated he had been playing through the injury for seven weeks before it took a turn for the worse during a December 27th practice. There had been some harsh, unfounded speculation that Price's absence was related to both baked-in rest and his eagerness to be present for the birth of his second child, but the two events appear to be coincidental. Montreal plays Vancouver Thursday. While there's no word yet if he'll start, Price is 1-0 against the Canucks this year, having stop 36-of-38 shots against them on November 17th.

Fantasy Impact: Price is not traveling with the team, and his status for Montreal's New Year's Eve game against the Dallas Stars is still unknown. This development is worrisome for fantasy owners who will recall that Price missed 70 games of the 2015-16 season with a knee injury.

Carey Price allowed four goals on 35 shots as the Canadiens fell to Boston 4-0 Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Price will remain stuck at 299 career victories for now. It was the only the Habs second loss in their last seven tilts. It was no help to Price that Montreal was 0-for-3 on the power play. "I don't think there's a whole lot that needs to be said," Price said after the game. Fair enough.

Fantasy Impact: It's a personal four game losing streak for Price, who was the victim of two toss-up deflections. It's been a dreadful start of the 2018-19 for Price.

Fantasy Impact: Tonight's performance was a step in the right direction for Price who has struggled of late. He had allowed four goals in three of his prior four games and won only one of his past six starts. In fact, Price got off to a hot start to the season but has struggled since the beginning of December. He is in danger of being a fantasy bust and has certainly been a disappointment to this point in the season.

Fantasy Impact: Price was among the top goalies taken in this year's fantasy drafts, but this missed game is no reason to worry. It is unclear whether Price will be able to start on Friday against the Senators or whether Al Montoya will be in goal again. Either way, it won't be long until Price is back in net and benefitting fantasy teams.
