SOCHI, Russia (AP) - One of the brightest stars for Canada this Olympics isn’t scoring goals, he’s preventing them.

Carey Price, of the NHL’s Montreal Canadiens, didn’t give up a give up a goal in the Sochi Games after allowing a goal to Latvia in the first period of the quarterfinal.

He saved 15 of 16 shots in that games, then had 55 combined saves in the semifinal against the United States and the final against Sweden. On a team that did struggle occasionally on offense in the tournament, Price was arguably the most important player in Canada’s march to a repeat gold medal, which it won by beating Sweden 3-0 on Sunday.
