Sure you could characterize it as Carey Price enduring "a wrist shot right...in the...middle...of the net" but we all know better. The immediate doubling over is a tell-tale sign of a nut shot.

The blow was a result of friendly fire during pre-game warmups tonight, but Price was able to make the start against the Boston Bruins. Price's fortitude is commendable, however misguided: he allowed two goals and the Bruins beat the Canadiens 2-1.
