Montreal Canadiens Say, “Come On Down for the Halak Showcase Showdown”

During his cameo in Adam Sandler's laugher Happy Gilmore , Bob Barker, the charismatic former host of one of TV’s most popular game shows, The Price Is Right , quipped, "You know what's driving me crazy? You not getting the ball in the hole!"


Well, I imagine the Montreal Canadiens goaltending tandem of Carey Price and Jaroslav Halak are going a little mad with how starts are being doled out by coach Jacques Martin at the moment.


After winning four games in a row and being named the NHL's first star of the week in late December, Halak was unable to hold onto an early lead against the Ottawa Senators on December 28, 2009, and got tagged with the loss in the 4-2 defeat.  However, after a very nice stretch in the crease, many thought Halak had finally moved into the role as The Habs No. 1 keeper.
