Price won the 2015 Ted Lindsay Award for the NHL's most outstanding player on Wednesday night.

This is the best individual award a player in the NHL can receive, and for Price, despite his disappointing playoff performance, it was well deserved. He led the league in both wins (44) and save percentage (93.3) and was tied for second in shutouts with nine on the year.

Price gave up three goals on 27 shots in Tuesday's season-ending Game 6 loss to the Lightning.

After being perhaps the best player in the entire NHL during the regular season, Price had an inconsistent playoffs, including posting save marks under .900 in three of the six games against Tampa Bay. After Price was injured in the playoffs against the Rangers last year and the Habs went on to lose, the team was surely counting a healthy goalie among its blessings entering the playoffs. Of course, much more can (and should) be made of the failings of the Montreal offense, which scored two or fewer goals in nine of its last 10 playoff games. Management will surely be looking for some scorers this offseason to complement Price's prowess on the back end.

Price will be in the net for Tuesday's Game 6 against the Lightning.

Price has made every start for the Canadiens this postseason, and there's little chance of that changing for the duration of the team's stay in the playoffs. Through 11 playoff games, Price is 6-5 with a 2.17 GAA and .923 save percentage.

Price made 24 saves in Montreal's 2-1 win in Game 5 against Tampa Bay.

He backstopped the Habs with several brilliant saves, including a post-to-post sprawl that stopped a sure goal by Valtteri Filppula around the 12-minute mark of the third to keep the game knotted at ones. The Habs head south to the Sunshine State for yet another elimination game, this time on Tuesday night.

Price stopped 22 of 24 shots Thursday in Game 4 against the Lightning, leading the way to a sweep-avoiding 6-2 victory.

After dropping the first three games of this series, Price and the Habs came out with a vengeance, and the Vezina frontrunner didn't allow a goal until his team was up 5-0. The series returns to Montreal for Game 5 on Saturday, and you can bet that Price will be motivated to stop the Lightning from ending his season in front of his home fans.

Price will start in net for Game 4's matchup with the Lightning on Thursday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Price has been good for the most part during the postseason, and will almost certainly take home some hardware. He'll receive the start in net again for Game 4 - which comes as no surprise - as the Canadiens look to stave off elimination for at least one more game.

Price stopped 17 of the 19 shots he faced Wednesday in a Game 3 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Lightning managed a goal with one second left on the clock, and that gave Price and the Habs their third loss in as many games. Price has not been the problem, he has a .920 save percentage, but the Canadiens are all but guaranteed to be eliminated in this round. Price will have to settle for a Vezina and maybe a Hart.

Price will draw the start Wednesday for Game 3 against Tampa Bay.

Price struggled mightily in Game 2 against Tampa Bay, allowing six goals on 24 shots faced. He'll remain in net for Game 3 and will need a much better performance to help the Canadiens avoid an 0-3 deficit in the series.

Price allowed six goals on 24 shots in Sunday's Game 2 loss to the Lightning.

Easily the worst outing of the playoffs for Price, as he had mostly carried his brilliant regular season into the postseason to this point. The Bolts have given him fits all season long as he's 0-5-2 with 24 goals allowed in seven starts, but he'll need to figure out it quickly to keep Montreal in the series.

Price will get the nod between the pipes for Sunday's game against the Lightning, John Lu of the TSN Montreal Bureau reports.

Price has been playing at the top of his game recently, and Game 2 figures to be more of the same. He will look to get the win Sunday, something he couldn't do against Tampa Bay in Game 1.
