Welcome to, the official site of the National Hockey LeagueBienvenue à , le site officiel de la Ligue nationale de hockeyДобро пожаловать на, официальный сайт Национальной хоккейной лигиTervetuloa NHL:n viralliselle nettisivustolle NHL.comiinVälkommen till, NHL:s officiella web-sidaVítejte na, oficiálních stránkách National Hockey LeagueVitajte na, oficiálnych stránkach National Hockey LeagueWillkommen auf, der offiziellen Seite der National Hockey LeagueMONTREAL -- Carey Price is on the doorstep of Montreal Canadiens history, and the son of the man he's about to overtake, one of the greatest goalies the game has ever known, is eager to see him step inside.Price has 313 regular-season victories, one shy of tying the legendary Jacques Plante atop the Canadiens' franchise list for most wins by a goalie. It's a completely different world than playing somewhere else, being able to stand all that pressure."Video: Carey Price reflects on his career after tying PlanteThe record has loomed larger with every win, though Price has been so focused on the moment that he sometimes had to ask team staff how close he was getting.When Price does indeed claim the record for his own, expect the Canadiens to schedule a celebration of the feat before a Bell Centre home game, when Michel Plante almost certainly would for the first time meet the goalie who caught his late father.It matters little to Plante's son that Price has had the benefit of overtime and the shootout, which his father didn't have, to pad his wins total. "I'm most proud of my father's goals-against average with the Canadiens (2.22), which is better than Carey (2.47), Ken Dryden (2.24) and Patrick Roy (2.78)."Plante also had the NHL's best save percentage three times in Montreal - 1955-56 (.930); 1958-59 (.925) and 1961-62 (.923).If he had the chance to talk to Plante today, Price says the chat would turn to equipment, "as most goaltending conversations go. That's the way Jacques was."Father and son have had discussions about Plante, and Carey Price has twice worn likenesses of Plante on his masks - on Dec. 4, 2009 in a game to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Canadiens' first game in the pre-NHL National Hockey Association and on Feb. 20, 2011 in the Tim Hortons Heritage Classic in Calgary, with Plante's open eyes, mouth and ears framing Price's face. I feel like my consistency is back and I feel that our team game is more consistent, too."A year ago, Price sat in his team's dressing room to discuss catching Plante for most franchise games played by a goalie at 556. He is ranked No. 1 all time for games played, having passed Plante's 556 last season on his way to his current 610, and also leads minutes played with 35,953.Price is fourth on the shutout list, his 43 three behind No. 3 Dryden's 46, trailing Plante's 58 and the 75 of leader George Hainsworth, an early-era goalie who racked up 49 shutouts in the three seasons of 1926-29, before the NHL legalized the forward pass."That's (going to be) tough to get in today's game," Price joked of Hainsworth's record. And when it happened, it's like he had video in front of him.Jacques Plante and Carey Price wearing very different equipment"I'd want Carey to know this about my dad: he was a people person.
