Canadiens' Carey Price: Edged out despite 36-save performance

Price denied 36 of 38 shots by the Ducks on Tuesday, but was stuck with a 2-1 loss.

His teammates -- playing in the second of back-to-backs on the road -- just couldn't get anything going on offense other than Andrew Shaw's goal with two minutes remaining. Price has had some stumbles this month, but this certainly wasn't one of them. When he's on top of his game (which is most of the time), there's none better. However, Montreal's only scored five goals in his last three starts; as good as Price is, he'll need a bit more support than that to keep up his spectacular win rate (13 and an overtime loss in 16 starts).
