The NHL's Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price can return to his next playoff match against the Boston Bruins with a clear conscience after his dogs were lost and later found with a little help from both a tweet and a radio show.

Yahoo Sports Canada reported that Price lost his two Labradors Sunday night, and tweeted just after midnight that he hoped people might keep a lookout for them.

The tweet reached Price's nearly 200,000 followers, and was retweeted several hundred times. A local radio station, TSN 690, picked up the story, and also asked residents of Candiac, a suburb of Montreal, to keep their eyes peeled.

John Mastromonaco was in his vehicle listening to the station's morning show the next day when he heard the report about the missing dogs, and almost immediately spotted them following a local jogger.

"I was driving along about 6:15 a.m., and I heard on TSN 690 that Carey Price had lost his dogs in Candiac. Almost right at that time, I see two Labs following a jogger — and they weren't on a leash. It wasn't a coincidence," said Mastromonaco.

He said he pulled over and asked the jogger if they were his dogs. The man said no, they were not.

"So I go to the dogs, and they came right to me, sat next to me. I called the radio station and told them I thought I'd found the two dogs. They went nuts."

He soon thought to check the dogs' tags, and discovered a British Columbia phone number. Knowing Price was from there, he gave it a try and Price's wife picked up.

He delivered the dogs in the truck to Price's home, nearly a half-hour's walk away.

"As soon as the door opened, the dogs knew. Carey came out. He was super happy, and offered me a signed stick. I told him good luck on Tuesday night," said Mastromonaco.
