Jaroslav Halak-Carey Price: Elite Duo Emerges for Montreal Canadiens

December 24th, 2009 by Felix Sicard Leave a reply »

Amidst the Montreal Canadiens' well publicized goaltending controversy, one constant seems to have arisen every time the Habs hit the ice: strong goaltending.

Jaroslav Halak has been outstanding as of late, but it should not be forgotten that Carey Price was having a strong run as well before he faltered against the New Jersey Devils and the Minnesota Wild.

It remains that the Canadiens don't actually have a clear-cut number one. However, when one of them does achieve that title, it will remain just that: a title. Both Halak and Price are number one goaltenders, so the pecking order is based on current performance.

Jacques Martin has made a point of going with the goaltender that will give him the best chance to win, and that mentality seems to have rubbed off on the young duo.
