Wee Bey Brice did you watch the Montreal Philly series?

With your comments which conflict with my memory, you made me look up the score sheets. My memory was fine. Our offense was adequate that series, we scored at a healthy pace, but Price was having a nervous breakdown.

May 3rd, 2008, Philly wins 6-4, Price lets in 5 goals on 36 shots
April 30th, Philly wins 4-2, Halak lets in 3 goals on 25 shots
April 28th, Philly wins 3-2, Price lets in 3 goals on 12 shots, gets taken out, and Philly turtles the rest of the game firing only an additional 2 shots on Halak.
April 26th, Philly wins 4-2, Price lets in 4 goals on 23 shots.
April 24th, Montreal wins 4-3, Price lets in 3 goals on 33 shots

His save percentage was .858 and thus we lost 3 of those 4 games with a total score of 15-12 not including an empty netter. Put an average NHL goalie with a .912 save percentage in there, let alone Huet, and we would have outscored them over those 4 games, by a total score of 12-9. We would have won 3 of 4 rather than lost 3 of 4 games.

12 goals in 4 games is actually above average offense. Average offense for the playoffs is 10 goals in 4 games.

With Huet in nets, we were a bona fide stanley cup contender.
