And that is why you spend a high 1st round pick on a goaltender. Much as I was disappointed the Habs sat back on a 1 goal lead in the 3rd period, in retrospect it was worth it, just this once, to see the performance of Price. Also, big night for Andrei Kostitsyn.
Price and Kostitsyn were the big stories but guys like Begin, Gorges, Hamrlik etc did the blue collar work to solidify the win.
Its odd the top line scores 3 goals yet Kovalev was only visible when coughing it up or making a weak attempt to clear the puck. He along with Tanguay and Lang were by far the worst players on the ice.
D'agostini was quiet although he had nothing really to play with.
