Obviously not very exciting with a 1-0 finish but a win's a win and we'll take it.
Chucky looked greated tonight, best game I've seen from him in a while. He was part of the play, skating and shooting. Plus that was a nice move he made on the Bourque goal. Speaking of Bourky, the guy played a man's game tonight. He took all the abuse and then came up in the clutch. I've been impressed with him all year.
Price FINALLY gets a well deserved shut out (could have had 3-4 already this year) and PK FINALLY gets some GD ice time. Gotta love taking 4 points home after a bad loss.
If that is so, why did we own the third period? You're lucky Price is a stud. There are about 20 other goalies in the league that would've allowed a goal on that flurry we had.
Sorry to disillusion you, Benched. True, the Panthers outplayed the Habs in the 3rd period. True, Price was a stud. But it was also true that if Théodore hadn't elevated his game way above his season's record the Habs would have lit up the red lamps so many times in the 1st and 2nd (and even in the 3rd) that Price could have let in a couple and still would have been able to coast. Although Théodore improved his miserable stats he'd have to struggle to reach mediocrity the rest of the way.
really fed up with people saying "whoa hes gonna cost bergevin ALOt of money in 2 years!"
thats what we WANT, if hes gonna play like that and put up numbers then he deserves the damn money, what you dont want him on our team? i just dont get it, we'll have the space in a couple years to truly afford him, were better with him then without him
great work from galchenyuk from the start of the 3rd on, he just doesnt touch the PUCK enough, there always seems to be something that happens, a bone head play by the D or the wingers and he just cant touch the puck and has to play positioning (which he excels at), that will all come with time as gets more and more ice time thruout his career, but great play on the goal
So happy for price lol...he deserves at least 4 shutouts by now
We're built upon Price dude. Let it go already, it wasn't that bad of a screwjob and Hoobydoo probably dove. Losses happen.
It was a pretty bad screwjob to miss not only one but two blatant trips, one of which happened with the game on the line. As a Panthers fan, losses like this where we stay in the game the entire time and pretty much the entire team plays well (which is very rare) are hard to take.
And I didn't think it was a dive by Hubs. And even if it was, you can't blame him. We already didn't get one blatant trip call earlier in the game and this happened with the game on the line. Also, if you have followed Hubs all year, you'd know he has had a lot of no calls happen to him. It was also during 4-4, by far the worst department for the Panthers this year (evident by the defensive miscue that ended the game) and I think Hubs knows that so it also could've been a reason for him to embellish. It was still a trip that should've been called.
Either way, it was a good game. Enjoy the win. We'll see you next time.
For those that say the attendances are great in Florida, oh boy it was terrible to see on TV last night!
What you see is the Red Seats, who are bought by people who have little interest in Hockey and just want to attend the other shows performed at the arena.
The rest of the arena, as far as I've heard, is actually pretty filled and alive. The local management should really sell upgrades to people who want to take the empty Red Seats. It'll appear that it's actually FUN to come at a Hockey game; instead of being in an empty building.
Wow .. we never win our 2 games in the Florida State... Glad the boys kept pushing for the OT Winner....
But.. this was probably the worst win to watch of the season.. such a snooze fest!
Congrats on Price for his first SO of the season!
How was this game a snoozer? End to end rushes, big hits, great goal tending, more goals doesn't equal more fun.
Arena wasnt as full as usual, especially with the Habs in town, but the sections behind the player benches and thus most prevalent on TV is called Club Red. It's our idiot of a president's idea of a good marketing ploy and costs 22k a ticket. An 'exclusive club' allowing the same seat and admission to every event at the arena for the year. Also has a lounge and large TVs in the back.
It's a joke and they displaced long time season seat holders who stayed loyal through the ****** years for it. A corporate area if there ever was one. We call it club dead and are all pissed off with it. Yormark is an idiot.
