Halak should get game 3 and ride him until he falters. Our team defense is partly to blame as well so I can't place all the blame on Price. However, Price is simply not getting it done. He's a big guy playing small. He is down too fast on everything and not cutting the angles. I wish he would play more of a standup style like Brodeur or at least a hybrid style to take advantage of his size and reflexes. Has Melanson messed with him too much, I don't know.
Both our goalies are young, and for that position, maturity and experience go a long way. Yes, inconsisency is an issue and I do believe both will improve. Halak is underated for sure and I wouldn't dismiss him just because he doesn't have the high profile media coverage or marketability of Price. Just look at the numbers.
