I can't even find a moral victory tonight.
Habs were totally dominated and outworked for a second road game in a row.

Oh I think I've seen about enough from the Plekanec line. Well it's not even really a line. You've got Kovalev just out for a skate, Plekanec only looking for Kovalev, and Kostitsyn just looking lost. They never sucked for a 10+ game span last year like they have this year. Keep the brothers together, play them with Lang, or Plekanec... whoever.

On a more important note, twice in a week the habs get there ***** handed to them and Price looks terrible.

Komisarek was AWFUL. Forget the fight, he was poor.

I cant actually say anything good tonight. Nothing.
Obyrne looked like the best Dman tonight. He didn't back down or back away from hits.

No excuses. Boston is the best team of the division and is well coached. We're not up there RIGHT NOW. Thing is the playoffs do not start tomorrow.

So which was Price's fault?

When dandenault and Komisarek played hot potatoe with the puck, and the Bruins got a breakaway?
The whole defence swan diving on an admittedly bad rebound, but not covering three forwards to score?
The stupid penalty leading to a soft Gorges clearing attempt and like eighty passes that looked like a 3-0 rush that ended up in our net?

Not specificaly in the crease. Happens in the high slot. The Bruins know it and they did it all game long.

The thing about simpletons is they never actually have a valid point and one's time is wasted waiting for them to make one. I'm sure they will all move on to another equally ridiculous delusion to entertain themselves.

Haha, some of our fans overreacting, once again...
We're only in November. Yes there are lots of things that need to be fixed but I seriously prefer to see them lose like this than to see them win a game where they put no effort and think they can win any game.

Still, I agree it's kind of sad to see a team play a perfect game Tuesday and then see them play like that tonight...Where were the leaders of that team?

Wasn't Price's fault still a 5-hole on freakin Thornton? That incredibly bad rebound that he gave giving Yelle a goal. And then, not just in the goals but all night he was so bad in his positional game, was slow and was battling the puck all night....

Price was as bad as his teammates.

Yea but Boston's a good team and if we lose, but give an incredible effort, then so be it. But ****, what the **** was that? This is going to be a looong and disappointing season if some of the guys on this team don't wake the **** up. News flash - noone is afraid of the Habs.

It doesn't take much to win when you have our talent - work hard, play responsible in your own end, keep pucks deep in the other team's zone, skate hard. Habs were 0/4.

Do that on any goalie in the league, you'll score more often than not. The defence can't let those passes happen. Lateral movement is a big part of the game, one-timers are tough on goalies because they have to get from one side of the net to the other in a hurry.. now you're going to blame him for not getting to one side, to the other and then back? That's a lot of weight displacement, stops and push offs in the time it takes passes to go across the ice and a quick accurate NHL shot to be made. You have to cheat and know there will be those passes in order to be ahead of the game, but in the NHL you suspect your defence will be at least good enough to make the other team hesitant or block or at least deflect the pass.

The most insulting thing of the night was Lucic doing his stuff after the fight with Komisarek. Had he only won and got out, it would have been ok, but seeing him do the clown out there was just too much.

Had I been behind the penalty bench, I'd have peed on him.

1. Playing the puck in the restricted zone = 1 goal
2. Squeeze the puck when it hits your glove and avoid those unsightly rebounds.
3. Quit sliding so far out of your net. That's not a goalie in control.

He almost batted one into his own net on a casual play. I love Price but if he doesn't play with a *little* more intensity, he's not going to succeed.

He could have stopped all 3. Especially the first one that went 5 hole.

Look, I'm not saying he wasn't bad, because he wasn't good. But no one showed up, so why leave him in? He's not getting any help. The last person you want on your team to lose confidence is your goaltender.

You don't do that with goaltenders. It just isn't right.

Leaving him in could affect his confidence, which is the be all and end all for goalies. I also subscribe to the cliche that you don't leave a goalie in when the team in front of him doesn't show up, on rare occasions the players respond to such a move.

I agree he was one of the few that played well. My Bruins obsessed girlfriend is really giving it to me on msn right now.
