Larry? Who the heck is Larry?

That’s what I was thinking after Carey Price broke Jacques Plante’s record for most career wins by a Canadiens goalie with a 3-1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings Tuesday night at the Bell Centre.

“Not just for our team, but that was a big night for Larry and we wanted to give that to him,” Max Domi said after Price registered career win No. 315. “To be a part of that was pretty special.”

Wrong.

I learned a couple of hours later that Larry is Price’s new nickname when Andrew Shaw tweeted out: “Congrats Larry! @CP0031” along with a team photo taken in the locker room after the game.

Congrats Larry! @CP0031 <a…
