The BIG problem in my opinion!

Guys (and girls)

The BIG problem in my opinion with the Habs is scoring this season and for the following reasons:

1) Little to no PP goals this season.
2) Kovalev not playing like he was last season.
3) Lack of consistency from key players like Kostitsyn, Kovalev and Higgins.

Now, we have seen the same story for the past few weeks where we are down by a goal, tie it up in the last few minutes and go to overtime or a shootout to either win or lose.

Price is playing good hockey in my opinion, a goalie that averages less than 2.50 (which he is) is considered in the upper 10 usually, now if we can get something clicking and put together those 4 to 5 goal games like last season then we can be winning these games! There is NO reason why a team like the Habs shouldn't be scoring at least 4 goals on a "lucky" goalie like Tim Thomas and Alex Auld.

Anyways, that is my opinion, and hopefully they pick it up! Especially on the PP and the only way to do that is to get Kovalev going because if Kovalev isn't going the PP isn't going and the Habs lack luster at the end of the day.
