I'm not going to criticize Carbo. I just find it odd that he would start Halak and then return to Price.
I was sure Price would start the last game. He went with Halak. Halak let in 3 goals but since most of the Philly goals have been of the unusual sort, I can't complain about Halak.
Maybe he is just playing a hunch. back to the wall and all that
I think the equation so far in this series has been that Halak and Price have not been terrible. But they have not been outstanding as Biron has been.
Meanwhile Philly has been nowhere near as impressive in the rest of their game, which matches up well for them with Halak and Price not playing great. On the other hand, like good pitching beats good hitting, it appears great goaltending beats great scoring chances.
I don't think a team can win a series with mediocre goaltending unless the other team's goalie is just as mediocre. Great goaltending can cancel great offense
