Price allowed just a single goal on 38 shots Tuesday in a win over the Islanders.
He allowed Kyle Okposo to open the scoring with a first-period goal, then shut things down completely from there and watched his team score three unanswered. That's five wins over the last six games now for Price, and he hasn't given up more than two goals or finished with a save mark below .913 in any of those contests.

Price will be in the crease Saturday against the Senators.
Price will be making his 28th start of the season Saturday, as his strong ratios (2.32 GAA, .923 save percentage) have forced Michel Therrien to give him the nod nearly every night this season. Similarly, he's excelled against the Senators throughout his career, carrying a 16-6-4 record into Saturday's match. Robin Lehner will make the start in goal for the opposition.

Price will be in the crease Thursday against the Ducks, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Price has been spectacular in claiming three consecutive wins, stopping 84-of-88 shots (.954 save percentage) to bring his record up to 17-8-1 for the season. The Ducks, who recently saw a seven-game winning streak come to an end, figure to be a stiff test for Price, but it's probably worthwhile to use him while he's playing impressively and on home ice.

Price made 25 saves on 26 shots in Tuesday's 4-1 win over Carolina -- his third straight victory.
After an inconsistent road trip, Price and the Habs have been enjoying home cooking over the last three games, as the 27-year-old minder has made 84 saves on 88 shots (.954) since returning to Montreal. The team as a whole has been far better at home than on the road this year; fortunately, they'll host their next two games, with Anaheim coming to town Thursday and Ottawa rolling in on Saturday.

Price will be in the crease Friday against the Kings.
Price surprisingly cruised to an easy win over the Canucks his last time out Tuesday, facing only 16 shots on the evening. The Kings don't present a particularly fearsome attack, but the reigning Stanley Cup champs figure to present a tough test for Price. The Kings are expected to counter with backup goalie Martin Jones after Jonathan Quick manned the net in their win Thursday over the Senators.
