i only liked the play of higgins and kovy (not the whole game) and price besides that i think the 4th line played harder and better than the other three lines...just seems to be a lack of chemistry? or what lol
This is why you just can't not love Price... Each time he makes a mistake, he totally stands on his head afterwards... Great to get the win! Now we have to work on the transition against trap-playing teams.
You just can see how the guys hate to play slow-paced, closed games...
Some adjustments, but once again, many positives here...
- Tanguay keeps on being an important piece in these games...
- Kovalev/AK46 played great
- Markov was sharp defensively
- Price is really CLUTCH!
- Koivu showed us he can use more than one deke
- Higgins shows great hustle
He wasnt good in that shootout.
He allowed 4 goals on 7 shots.
He also looked bad in the season opener against buffalo.
Then I was an idiot then because there were 3 consecutive saves by the other goaler which put all the pressure on him until towes scored so sorry for thinking that's nerves of steele to keep his team alive 3 times in such a huge game
I maintain he has always been good in the shootout, and if its not true it's the impression I get...and so do the players and that must help calm down the nerves
