Because the Internet can be woefully out of date, and because Canadiens goaltender Carey Price can go for a Friday afternoon drive from his South Shore home to the West Island without calling ahead, one woman's world can pretty much be turned upside down.

So it is that Sylvie Brunet, owner of the Yazoo pet food and supply store in Pointe Claire's sleepy Valois village, is still shaking her head in disbelief more than two weeks after superstardom strolled into her shop.

"The door opened and I thought I was seeing things," Brunet said. "I just said: 'What the heck are you doing here?' and Carey just looked at me, dumbfounded."

In fact, Price was looking for a shedding blade for his two Labrador retrievers. He'd used such a brush last summer out west on his rodeo horses, then with great success on one of his dogs.
