I'm all for giving Price a few games here and there to get out of his slump, but if the kid isn't winning and we need to win games, why keep playing him??? Halak was winning games for the Habs, which is what they need, and now he's sitting on the bench instead of Price?? It makes no sense to me.
Last 10? Halak was standing on his head while stinking the joint out against Calgaray and Atlanta (9 goals combined in 80 minutes). Despite the 4-game streak, he's only 6-4 in his last 10 and has a 3.20 avg and .921 save percentage. Not quite as heroic a performance as you might think. Good save percentage if you want to talk about that, but Price is .936 over his last 5 games. I don't understand the outrage.

I bet you are actually hoping the Habs lose tonight because Price is playing?
