Picture Of The Day: Is Your Mask Looking At Me?

Before you begin to believe that Carey Price is as creepy as the mask he was wearing during yesterday’s NHL Heritage Classic, we should inform you that the design by artist David Arrigo, which featured the look of an old-school goalie mask with eyes on the top and a mouth on the bottom, was a tribute to legendary Canadiens’ goaltender Jacques Plante.

Unfortunately, Price couldn’t pull off some of that Jacques Plante magic, as his Canadiens fell to the Calgary Flames by a score of 4-0.  I guess his mask was doing a better job of scaring away his own teammates from playing defense, rather than scaring away pucks and members of the opposition.
