I was kinda shocked to see on the replay all that open net space for that Avs 1st SO goal. A sign Price was way off tonight.

Firing the coach might not be that far off, anyone know any good french coaches that are looking for a job?

Price wasn't very good. I say that, but I know he'll bounce back, just not strong tonight.

The good:
Virtually all the forwards did more good than bad.
Eller is back
Pacioretty-DD-AK
We outplayed them
Emelin except for one play
PP is looking better and better.

The bad:
Subban
Gill
Price
PK


I know the pessimists will have a field day but there's a lot to like IF we can fix that vile PK. We lost because Varly outplayed Price. Price and Subban can't play this bad all year.

Subban and Weber were clicking on the PP, I'll be happy to see more of that pairing.

I think Price was not in perfect health. He's usually a lot better in shootouts. Didn't he miss a practice with a virus earlier this week?

No time for panic yet, we did score 5 goals, that's enough to win on most nights.

Price is worthless since pre-season started, only one decent game played. Will look on the bright side, no big payday for him if he keeps up his crappy play.

I find it funny people are blaming Price on this, I thought even though it was a 6-5 game both goalies actually were pretty decent.

Montreal is getting a lot of shots in their games, but no traffic in front for screens or rebounds means no goals.

Need more net presence, and Gionta the smallest guy is the one there all the time and look what happened.

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 .

They need to go back to the fundamentals
Defense was not the issue tonight.

4/5 goals should have been routine saves.

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?

Everyone here comes in and blames Price. Was he great? No far from it but by far the worst player on the ice was Mr. Subban.

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.

Neither was PK.

It's a good thing though. It's gonna give them some much needed humility. They'll both bounce back.

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.
