... or how much the team in front of him sucks. Hell, most of the time in this series I don't like what I see even when the Habs are in possession of the puck because I have the premonition that in the blink of an eye it'll be on a Bruin's stick.

Price isn't the reason the team is losing though.

Do you expect Halak to retain any useful lessons from his experience in the 4th game?

No, it would make the Bruins look bad.

its funny how a goaltender's stats can look bad when the team in front of him is being severely outplayed.

2. We will not win games by outworking them to make up the talent gap.

3. Price will not consistently outplay Thomas.

BUT, the following thing HAS NOT been proven to us in this series:

1. Thomas will outplay Halak.

Not to say it won't happen, just that it hasn't shown itself yet... and at this point it's all we've got left. This is not rocket science... for a banged up team with less talent to beat a healthy team with more talent, the goalie has to stand on his head. Price is not the goat for this series, but he is not stealing games, and we need to steal games. So we start Halak in game 4, because we know what we're getting in this series with Price and it's not working.

We have no business going deep in the playoffs this year. But I still want us to. Giving Halak a shot is our best chance, and maybe the ghost of George Vezina stands behind him and gets the job done.

GO HABS GO.
Look we all know that Price is our future but if Ganey doesn't give Halak the start in game four[even just for the experience]
than i hope he never steps behind the Habs bench again

Blame the defense not the goaltender. Halak would have had to be 8 feet wide to save those pucks.
