This is what the blind Carey Price supporters are neglecting to address.
I've been bashing him, but I'm not ignoring the fact that the Bruins are and have been the better team all season long. I'm well aware of the fact that the defense in of him sucks! The Bruins forwards are running him and parking their rumps in his crease on every offensive possession.
My point of contention is that Price HAS TO MAKE A CRUCIAL SAVE! There are moments where all teams have their goalies play out of their minds and make saves that are surefire goals and just win the game! This is what we have yet to see this in his short NHL career. If you're going to be the # goalie, you have to have at least 1 of these games.
Obviously it Bob's gainey's fault for putting all his eggs in Carey's basket with such a porous defense. But he has Halak who's shown that he is mentally tougher than Price (thus far) and might be able to steal a game or two (as he's done in the regular season). It's imperative to put Halak in the game right now and send Price back to the Hamilton so that he can develop. He's NOT ready for the big lights of the NHL and even brighter lights of the NHL playoffs in Montreal. I certainly hope he doesn't turn into a Justin Pogge.
