It's anybody's guess what goes on inside the head of a struggling goalie, but according to Carey Price, whatever is going on in his head is not the result of anything the Flyers are doing. Yes, the 20-year-old Montreal rookie said, the Flyers are doing a lot of yapping in an attempt to throw him off his game. And they really gave him an earful after they put three shots behind him in the second period of the 3-2 Canadiens' loss Monday night, which gave the Flyers a two-games-to-one lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
