It's nice to get the win.. but there's a lot of things that make you cringe..

We gave up wayyy too many break-aways, odd-man rushes, shots in the slot.. we were lucky both Price and Budaj were good tonight.

Putting Price back-to-back in two intense games is a questionable call.. then pulling him even though the goals weren't his fault, really tough decisions to make, lucky they paid off but I don't think either move was smart in retrospect.

Gionta fascination needs to end. He's atrocious. If he isn't fumbling the puck out of the zone, he's taking a slap shot from the blue-line. Off the PP, off the important offensive zone face-offs, relegate him to the role player with the ability to chip in goals that he is at this point in his career.

DD and Bouillon need to be taken off the PP as well. Time for Emelin and Eller to get a shot. If you want Galchenyuk to get confidence then he should take the place of Gionta on the PP.

Taking Tinordi out of the defensive rotation was pretty brain-dead as well. You're in back-to-back against a fresh team, you need the legs.. rookie or not, he looked fine out there, no reason to overplay Markov and watch him get beat by Bergeron, Marchand and Seguin all night.

We need to use time-outs in momentum swings sometimes. The game was slipping in the 2nd and a breath, a re-focus might have avoided the 4 unanswered goals against.
