Sure, it's been sub-par and could be better, but the problem has been dominating play, generating scoring chances, and not putting the puck in. This is a combination of great goaltending by Biron and rotten puck luck by Montreal.
At the other hand it's the other way around... yes, Price has not been great, but he's also been victimized by amazing shots (how many went off the post and in?), screens, bad tips, and the like.
That 3-2 goal was flaggerbasting in its flukiness, and I guarantee you that the Habs can put any number of bodies in front of the net and shoot through and the way the puck is rolling, they never score a goal like that.
Luck goes both ways. You're delusional if you don't think that goaltending cost us this series.
