1st goal: deflection in the slot. You can't do nothing there. 2nd goal: a 100MPH one-timer. Even the tv guys didn't see the puck go in...the puck stuck behind the back post.
3rd goal: first shot, a freakin' save on a one-timer by mister Rocket Richard Jr. The rebound wasn't controllable at that speed. And he got beat by the RJ Umberger clone.
This game wasn't won by the Caps; it was lost by the Habs. Namely Plekanets.
I actually play goalie.
2nd goal I agree, no chance. 1st goal wasn't impossible either, I've seen goalies make that save before, it can be done, maybe it's just Price hasn't reached his next level yet.
Dude, goalies are instructed to recover after a shot and go into butterfly block with the stick flat on the ice and their arms tight against their bodies. That's what any goalie should do and Price didn't do that, it was definitely a stoppable rebound.
Again, this loss isn't on Price, I'm glad we played like we did.
