I know the huge cross creases your talking about...Price makes those because he identifies two guys coming in a two one...he's ready to move laterally...
In the OT case...his dman HAS to pick up Ryder thats literally ten feet away...no chance for Pricey there...not even superman could've stopped that me thinks
Maybe I just think Price is a better goalie than what most of you think. I think he is capable of being better than he was last night.
I think he could have had Ryder's first goal if his positioning was better.
Again the Ferrence goal, he was probably screened but I think when he is on his game, he finds a way to see that puck, I think Price is that good when he's on.
I also think he's more than capable of stopping the Bergeron goal. Again, I wouldn't blame the goal on him but I think he's capable of making that save.
On the 4th goal, he looks lost. Again I think Price is capable of following the play better than that.
I agree on the Ryder goal he had no chance but I've also seen him make those great saves because of his size and positioning.
My point is, if you read the forums for the past 3 months before the playoffs, the reason we did so good was because of Price. He was stealing games, making those big impossible saves. There was a reason why so many homer fans were saying Price should win the Vezina. He can play lights out hockey.
He is playing like a good goalie right now but he isn't playing lights out like he is capable of. When he didn't play lights out in the regular season, we often lost the game. That is what has happened here imo to a degree.
We need him to play lights out to beat Boston in a 7 games series. That is the make up of this team in the regular season. He played real good in the first two games but I wouldn't say he stole either of those games.
