Price sent a message on Twitter early Monday saying: "If anyone finds two labs running around Candiac they're mine." Candiac is a suburb south of Montreal. Local TSN radio reported that a caller who heard their report on the incident found the dogs and returned them to Price, and that the caller got an autographed stick in return.

The mind games have started in the Boston-Montreal playoff series.

Canadiens coach Michel Therrien says his team will not be thrown off by what he feels is an attempt by the Bruins to plant a seed of doubt in goalie Carey Price's head. He feels the same way about what he thinks is Bruins coach Claude Julien's bid to catch a break from the referees.

Game 3 is Tuesday night in Montreal.

Bruins defensemen Dougie Hamilton and Torey Krug have suggested the key to beating Price is to shoot high, particularly when they have traffic in front of the net.
