The Montreal Canadiens had four alternate captains in 2014-15, but one unequivocal leader.
“When Carey speaks, everybody listens,” Montreal right wing Dale Weise said Thursday of goalie Carey Price. “He doesn’t talk a lot, but when he does, I think his voice carries a lot of weight in this room.”
Price’s comments after the Canadiens were eliminated from the Stanley Cup Playoffs on Tuesday resonated with his teammates and throughout the NHL.
Price, who is a finalist for the Hart and Vezina trophies, took full blame for the Canadiens’ six-game loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Eastern Conference Second Round.
