By the way that happened twice tonight. Some people need to get there heads out of their ***** that think hockey is all about goaltending.

Do you know why Price looked good early in the season? Cause our defense was stingy it won puck battles and the puck came out of our own end quicker. Now it's staying longer because of turnovers and teams getting 2nd and 3rd scoring chances.

Price looked good early because pucks were not going through him, he wasn't giving up goals like the two Ovechkin ones. 1st one a weak wrister from a bad angle, 2nd one from further out.

Which of the goals scored tonight was a 2nd or 3rd chance? I can't recall any of the goals being on rebounds, I think they were all 1st shots on that particular sequence.

There are a pile of NHL teams with worst defenses than ours and their goalies don't have .800 save percentages.
