You do realize even after this bad streak for the Habs that Price's stats are still better than those of Halak's?

Drop that already, we don't need this crap here again.

Pretty sure it was Desharnais and Pacioretty on forward when PK took the penalty.

If reffing was right, we probably don't even go to OT and no one whines. However, an OBVIOUS almost automatic call with 2 minutes left in the 3rd wasn't called and it basically cost us 1 point and gave ATL 2. I'm done with this subject. What has happened, well, happened. It's frustrating, but that's how it's been since that game in Detroit. Good day sir.

Listening to some of you talk, you'd think we're talking about Pyatt for a second.....But again, I guess that's what the expectations are....
He wasn't great, but he did play well, and was far from invisible. Just because he didn't score any goals, he didn't play a bad game.

A player with talent that will bring it once in a while.
I honestly think that Kostitsyn played an okay game today with the ice time he had. He made some nice plays. Of course Kostitsyn is FAR, FAR from being perfect, and needs to play better, but Brunet keeping taking cheap shot at him for no real reason. It really looks like pure hate to me. Brunet shouldn't act like the average fan too, he's the freaking analyst, he has big responsabilities with his job.

It was. Desharnais was with the two dmen at the point while the other 3 habs were covering the two Thrashers down low and took a penalty.

If the Habs had any kind of finish, we're not even complaining about the call.

It's just annoying that some of you can't look at the game objectively. Atlanta is "lucky". The reffs "stole the game". They missed calls on Atlanta but of course, none on Montreal...blah blah blah.

Hold your team accountable for once. Yes, every so often there's some awful officating...but you guys complain about the officiating after every loss.

That's the reason why he should be fired before JM is.

Auld who has been above awesome so far this year? Even though I wanted to keep Desjardins, Mr. Auld has been great.

I wouldn't say he was great. He's won games, and has been a fine backup, but he's let in some stinkers.

Look around, fans from every teams complain about the officiating after every loss. I didn't see anyone say that Atlanta got lucky btw. And obviously there were missed calls on Atlanta but no one discussed it because that's NOT THE POINT.

I'll even say that while the team's finish obviously didn't help, it was more because Pavelec stood on his head that resulted in our loss. Now quit trolling and let's move on with our lives.

First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. Second......the Habs deserved this one. If you get 49 shots you should win. I liked the way they played but were not able to get the win.

Well, I don't think that AKost hurt the team or anything like that. He was Ok.

Really, this loss is pretty much on Price. Or, from a Thrashers perspective, the win is on Pavelec and opportunistic goal scoring.


AKost is at his best, though, when he's playing like a bull in a china shop. That's the AKost I hope to see next game.

Auld's numbers are as good as any #2 in the NHL, no way Price should have played that much.

We're giving so much important to analysts, commentators and all. They are still human beings. On top of that, Brunet was an ex-habs. Of course he'll have feelings. The fact that he's taking position doesn't bother me one bit. I don't like him 'cause he sucks at his job not at the position he's taking. And of course, even as far as Kostitsyn is concerned, he keeps repeating that he doesn't like him 'cause he has so much talent, again, true, but stops saying it every single time. And concentrate on somebody else once in a while. As far as being an average fan, you're lucky you're not a Bruins fan....you'd hate every TV show out there and you'd hate more the games with Edwards describing it....

Who else here would love to see an AK "boulette canon" deflects straight up and breaks Brunets nose?
