So can anyone give a serious answer as to why this team can't/won't score goals when Price is playing?

It's bitterly ironic when a 1-0 loss follows a game in which Halak is the the winner despite giving up 5 shaky goals to Florida. Is hiswin-loss record against weak teams supposed to demonstrate that Halak should start in the playoffs? Halak would be humiliated by the Devils, Penguins, Capitals, Sabres, or Bruins.

In games like that we need more garbage goals, deflections, rebounds and screens. One guy that could/would provide that if used properly was Lats but they traded him for a ballerina with stiff hands.

LMAO! Are you kidding me? If Latendresse had showed ANY willingless to pay the price to score garbage goals, deflections, rebounds, screens while he was a Hab with any consistency, he'd still be here.

Please...Pouliot 2 goals (actually 3 but one of was curiously credited to Gill) are the direct result of standing in front of the net and paying the price to score.

Stop making excuses for Latendresse's own failings...

Habs simply ran into a goalie who is on top of his game...end of story.

See this is what my problem with some posters on this forum is. You talk as if what you're saying is absolute irrefutable fact.

Mind telling me the 649 numbers too?

This can be nothing else other than a brilliant attempt at some of the dryest sarcasm ever to grace this board.

Honestly, I believe it's just irony playing with our minds.

Sure, you can say Halak faces the basement dwellers while Price gets the hard teams, but I don't believe it's entirely impossible for a basement dweller like the Islanders or Hurricanes to shut us out the way Buffalo did to Montreal with Carolina in nets. The same goes for the other way around.

Teams have good nights, and great nights. Other nights are not so good, and sometimes terrible. It's unfortunate, but in my opinion it's just one big twist of irony for this case.

One of the main reasons why we had NO offensive production was because we got out coached. Notice how when mtl entered the O zone they mostly had 2 dman on one guy and mtl players got the puck taken off of them everytime. Martin had no counter attack for this.

I have a theory: since it's the holidays, both teams went out drinking with one another before the game.

You look at the Habs vs Florida and against the Sabres and it's a completly different Habs team. I don't think i've seen one pass on the tape during the whole match. It was like the Habs before the trip.

This is correct.

Also, although miller was fantastic and did stop a couple of sure-goal chances, most shots were perimeter shots and were not taken quickly enough to beat miller's lateral movement.

The sabres countered the habs tactically, and the habs seemed unable to respond with appropriate changes. However, the game was relatively tight with chances going both ways at different points in the game (with, admittedly, a slight advantage to the sabres).

And Kimogionta is right too, there were so many bad passes it was frustrating.

I thought Plekanec and Cammy were pretty bad this game, they tried to turn it on at the end but a little too late. They sorely missed Andrei's physical presence and ability to win board battles.

I still think a lot of our problems is caused by our poor face-off % (thus, less puck possession to start with) and the small, top 6 guys who struggle with board battles. It really wears them down too.

I don't think anyone really screened Miller yesterday. He saw everything. We needed a big body presence in front. That's how Ottawa has beaten Miller this year! We need to work on deflections, etc. Miller is a great goalie but he is beatable and we made it a little too easy on him.

Alot of our problems yesterday were caused by a new years eve celebration that involved alchohol, Benny pouliot is the best player able to play hungover Happy New Year.
