The Canadiens are no longer Carey Price and a prayer; awful start in Columbus may bring change to bottom-dwelling Blue Jackets.
It was another week of wild movement on the charts, or pretty much exactly what you’d expect in the early going as skids were corrected and good fortune ran dry. The Canadiens continued to dominate, but more important, they’re demonstrating that they don’t need Carey Price to play at an MVP level for them to win. It was jarring (but promising) to watch them attacking instead of sitting on a lead late in a 4–1 win over the Red Wings on Saturday. They face a tough test Tuesday, hosting the red-hot Blues.
