MONTREAL - Well, the good news is Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price has six games left to get himself sorted out before the playoffs start.

The bad news is the Habs, who clinched a playoff spot two games ago, have just six games remaining before the playoffs start.

Price had another shaky performance in the Canadiens’ chippy 7-3 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers Monday night at the Bell Centre, giving up six goals on 29 shots in 40 minutes and getting the hook from Habs coach Michel Therrien for the second straight game.

Price was pulled in Saturday night’s loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs after giving up three goals on four shots, the first couple which were very weak. For those scoring at home, that’s nine goals on 33 shots for a save percentage of .727.
