It was just a couple of days ago people were talking about Jonathan Quick's kick save from his belly as the save of the season. perhaps it won't even be the save of the week.

That's because Canadiens goalie Carey Price had this gem of a save against the Lightning on Tuesday night. The GIF (via @MyRegularFace):

So that was pretty nice.

It was a touch old school with a bit of a two-pad stack feel but really, that's almost more instinct than anything. He almost just flailed and managed to get his pad up to kick that puck away.

We like the description from Canadiens beat writer Dave Stubbs.

Pretty smooth, Price, pretty smooth. This will go toward the highlight reel when discussing Price's Vezina Trophy candidacy in a couple of weeks.
