Too bad the Gomez haters can't get on his back tonight, once again.
Pouliot is great.
Price was his own self: Didn't do bad, but didn't steal goals... And that's what a #1 goalie has to do for you from time to time. He's young and has time to grow, too bad Halak's going to be traded, because he's going to be the only good NHL goalie we have left.
Note for Martin: On the PP, even though we lack of depth, put Pouliot Gomez and Gionta together, FOR CHRIST SAKE... Don't split them... especially not the way they were playing together tonight.
Price gives up quite a few of those. He seems to still go down too early. I do think he was our second best player of the game, so take that for what it is. Price ends up on his knees as the guy is shooting and tries to go side-to-side in the crease but no one can stop a bullet top shelf from their knees. Good god teach his some positioning. 1 hard earned point but we're still in trouble in the standings. This could be a start of something, or if this season is any indication it's just a tease. The Devils are next so after we lose that. Saturday with the Rangers will be our season. Halak played well in his last meeting with the Devils but tends to be average on the road. Meh, try Jaro in Newark this time. Carey had that awful goal there last time so give him the Saturday game unless Halak totally steals us a point or two Friday.
Price was on his knees to quickly on this one. On the first goal he might have had a chance to catch the deflection had he been standing too, but that would've been blind luck though so you can't really blame him too much there. I do however think the he gets caught on his knees to often.
I am not a Price basher, I believe in a total team effort, however, Price sure reminds me of Cris Huet on alot of outside shots, If he just stands up on that shot, it's an easy save.
