If everyone worked as hard as Maxim Lapierre, this team would be very tough to beat.

I think the "we need toughness baaadly" crowd is overreacting at the moment but there does seem to be an alarming deficiency in the effort level. As Pierre McGuire says, "ZOMG! There's just no pushback right now!!! You're in a losing situation and you need some pushback from your top players!!!!"

When you're 4th line is your best line your going to lose a lot of games. Simple as that. Right now Max & co. are the only ones giving us a legitimate effort. Once the other guys start paying the price to make the plays and giving more to the team we'll get back to winning.

And please forgive me for blaspheming but Price was weak again tonight after Wednesday's subpar outing. I can only imagine the reactions if Halak had been in net both nights.
