Thomas is equally capable of winning a game by himself as he is of losing it by himself. The fact that he has NEVER won a playoff series has to concern Bruins fans.
Price so far in his NHL career has not shown the capability to be consistently good, which Price will we see? The one that stoned Boston in game 7 last year or the one that took a vacation against Philly?
Whichever one of these 2 has the stronger series, thats the team that will win IMO.
No matter how many goals we score, there's always the chance that Price will either let in softies OR
if we have trouble scoring
Price will save the day
same goes for Thomas and I think your point is more than plainly obvious cuz there are question marks surrounding these two players.
As for what Bob said, yeah, that's true, but like people have mentioned above, I am FAR more worried about the skill of Kessel, Savard, Kreijci and Recchi* (intangible talents) and the other forwards than the ability of Lucic or Chara to keep hitting us. Ultimately they have to score and if you look at those previous Bruins teams that we beat, they didn't have nearly enough proven fire power (Thornton was a bust or "injured" and the young guys have vastly improved this year).
No odd man rushes...they will convert. No letting them take screened shots, Price will have trouble. Keep forechecking and reduce their scoring chances. That is the key to success. and please Pleky and Akost...WAAAAAKE UPPPPP!
