like get real haters still talking stupid **** after a game like tonight
dont forget he was 0-6 in his last 6 starts before tonight.
price played an amazing game, and if he can play like that more often it be amazing for our team. for now though its just 1 game, lets hope he can keep up the confidence he looked big tonight, it was nice to see.
I think this game can be a good confidence builder for us. Although many of you are crying that we didn't play good in front of Price, I disagree. I think we really tightened up our D overall and played a very smart game.
Even though we let up alot of shots, and Price had to make some big saves. Our D weren't turning over the puck instead of clearing it like we've been used to seeing. They also weren't getting themselves out of position and leaving guys alone in front.
Woulda been nice if they had have gotten to that rebound that Bergeron scored, but it was as if the Bruins were playing with an extra man out there
I really liked us Defensively. I think all the players played really smart (even MAB). I liked how our D blocked the Bruins from creating chances when they entered in our zone.. if things like that were not done, there would have been alot of more chances for Bruins and who knows?
Offensivly, I dont think we were that bad. We created good chances, but the Bruins D was just as effective.. They havent changed that..
The Bruins power play made me happy. Its good to see there is one PP in the league that is just as bad as ours..
On the sole Bruins goal, you can't really blame anyone on it.. Price had Chara and Spacek in his face and the rebound was right there for Bergeron.. no one to blame IMO, it happens..
Price! Well you could see he wanted the win so bad.. and it was great to see him react in OT.
the 5 on 3.. I really thought we could have ended it there! 3-0 atleast.. Markov would have looked nice on that 5on3.
I really didnt think we'd win in OT.. I felt that Bruins had all the momentum to score.. but when we went into Shootout, I was very confident.... No Savard, Kessel... I didnt think they'd be able to score.. but more importantly Price was real sexy.. especially on Recchis shootout attempt.
Price was great and I clearly give him alot of credit for this win.. it was alot on him, but the D played really well too!
A lot of shots allowed, sure, but the defense didn't allow many (if any) real quality scoring opportunities. And Carey cleaned them all up except for one. Boring road game, but good rebound for the defense, awesome game from Price (staying up on his feet and reacting to shots, employing a bit of hybrid like I suggested a few days ago), and impressive signs from White and Carle. I'm pretty happy with the win, although against a very depleted Bruins team.
Hope Spacek isn't seriously broken.
This is true. Price came out big when he had to but we did a better job protecting the slot, sweeping rebounds and covering the open man.
If tightened up D allows 43 shots, I'd hate to see loosey-goosey D.
Well, they weren't dissected with cross-zone passes like usual, and Carey didn't have to fight through much traffic at all (except the last one, with Chara in front, which unfortunately went in). Also, no big heart attacks, smart movement, clearing the zone when there's any indecision at all. A lot better ("tighter", even) than we've seen so far.
And really strong game from Hamrlik. He moved the puck smartly (if a little softly. Seriously, his passes are almost Contonelle soft) and didn't give an inch in any zone. Smart pinches, getting his body on and in front of Bruins everywhere... can't say enough. Needed that leadership in a game like this with the condition of the d-corps.
...the Anti-Price contingent will find something wrong with the PriceMan's performance. Oh, right, right, like that softie he let in, right? Wasn't that a softie, eh? And there's Price on his butt again, what a clown, right? Such a clown, down there on his butt again. Huh? Huh? Honestly, some of you really are worthless blobs of flesh.
Do you hear me, Anti-Pricers? Hear me, those of you who live to whine and cause divison?
