Can Price Rebound After Disastrous Showing?

Carey Price is viewed as the best goaltender in the world, but the star netminder will be attempting to bounce back from his worst game in nearly four years against the New York Rangers today. Books opened the Rangers as +130 favorites with a total of 5.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in four of the Canadiens' last five games.
  • The visiting team is 3-1 SU in its last four games in this matchup.
  • The Rangers are 8-1 SU and ATS in their last nine games on the road.

Price allowed seven goals in Thursday’s 7-1 loss to Minnesota - the most he’s yielded since March 2, 2013. The British Columbia native is the biggest reason the Habs rank atop of the Atlantic Division, so don’t expect another seven-goal night to happen anytime soon.
