New, comments

Carey Price’s play has improved at the right time for the Montreal Canadiens, plus the fight for equality for women in hockey.

Tune in to the latest episode of Habsent Minded to hear Jared Book and Anton Rasegård discuss the recent spike in form for Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price.

Since Anton wrote an article asking questions about Price’s current status among the elite goaltenders in the NHL, #31 has gone on a tear, saving 82 of 85 shots while conceding just one goal in each of his last three games.

How much of his resurgence can be attributed to the recent coaching changes, including Stéphane Waite being let go to make room for Sean Burke and Marco Marciano?

During the second part of the podcast, we touch on the fact that TSN’s regional Montreal and Ottawa broadcasts on March 8 had all-women panels, and how women slowly but surely are getting more opportunities in sports circles. Whether it is as analysts or coaches, there have been several important steps in the right direction taken by various sports.
