They've done more to shock me than win a game like this this year, but things look grim now. And there was so much hope at 3-1, too.
This game has, ultimately, been more of the same: the Habs flubbed too many chances, while the Flyers convert an inordinately high percentage of theirs. Groundhog day in action. For a moment it seemed like the Habs would be able to make up for it in volume, and they even were starting to get some puck luck going their way... but it wasn't to be.
While Price certainly looked weak on the third goal, I'm extremely impressed by the Flyers' shooters and the number of goals they've scored with shots that were so accurate they went off the post and in. I doubt that kind of accuracy is really sustainable, but it's lasted long enough to put the Habs in a deep hole, and possibly more.
