All I keep telling myself is it's just growing pains with a young D, but boy am I finding it hard to not yell bloody murder about that last call, and the lack of in OT, cuz I really don't like doing that .
Honestly, as much of an off night as it was for Price...
Are we gonna be this mad at the guy who wins us most of our games?
Not me....I just want him to quit choking on this 100th win. That's 9 goals against in the last 2 games. The team needs to knuckle down a little more. And **** me, somebody fix the PK...it's killed them in their last 2 games.
Did Muller run the PK last year? Who's running it this year?
Price and Subban had a bad games, but I'm not worried about either. I think both will find their groove.
Fortunately for parts of the game the Habs were dominant. Some major breakdowns, but alot of encouraging moments. Lots of sustained pressure. While their defensive game was lacking, their offense was promising.
No one really should be surprised at this abomination that Montreal calls a defense. They have two rookies, a second year defenseman, a 4th dman, and an aging 7 foot pylon on defense. They let there most steady defensive defenseman walk and replace him with no one. Even with Markov, the defense is fragile. We have known it for years and its never been addressed.
Price was weak tonight along with Subban and Gill again. Montreal cant make an out let.
The only positive i take out of it is that its early in the year and JM plays a defensive system where maybe with all the youth on the backend and many of the vets just starting to play regularly from the preseason, that the defensive side rounds out.
