I'm sure Price will play, and that Budaj gets the next game.

Also, didn't Habs make a trade recently? Did our new player play yet?

"our new player" has played twice already.

Habs have 12 players with 10+ pts... a league best.

The 9 players from the first 3 lines + the 3 D.

No, not everyone does.

Really? So if they literally have a shooting gallery for 65 mins with tons of screens for the goalie and either the best player in the game or 1 on 0 chances, you can't score on him 7 times? You could have scored on Price over 15 times, but he made a ton of saves most wouldn't and please. Those chances that the Pens got - It's a joke. And it's not even that we constantly played badly - they were 7 horrible plays that ended up happening. On the last one, the second I saw PAcioretty not having pivoted 2 seconds after he should have, I knew it was just a clear shot from the slot. Top corner shot is a top corner shot.

I would be more worried about whether he's physically able to play a back to back against a team he needs to be lights out in (yes, better than tonight, but tonight was when you are not superman and Price is superman 3/4 times).

If I was MTL I would for sure start Price. Big game. Got to see how he can bounce back and perform in these situations. This is how the playoffs will be. Price is good so he should be fine and ready to go. Should be a no brainer I would think.

Not sure if the whole "Budaj starting" is serious talk or just trolling.

Not sure if Price was serious or just trolling in allowing 7 goals the last game.

So sit him against a division rival? In a battle for the division lead?

Don't start a thread about this in the main board. Please.


As for tonight; I say send Price back in. He's a competitor, he bounces very well. The whole team will want to bounce back badly.

Budaj gets the nod, back to back games, no need to try and coddle Price. If he's that emotionally fragile, well then.

Well this one I gotta say is a must win. They should not lose against the 2 teams we fear might be better than the habs in the same week end.

Last night was a typical mid season game. Teams lose focus. Tonight it's a matter of making a statement. Play tight, play fast, be opportunistic and it should be fine.

I say its more the habs tryed to play someone else's game. Between this one and the game where the leafs thumped the habs, I would think that is enough to teach them to stick to the game plan. I think they start price because of how he rebounds from bad games and the fact that it's short travel and not an afternoon game. Budaj cant handle the net presence of the Bruins IMO. Hell buffalo gave him a tough time with net presence.

I'd go back with Price normally, but 2 games in 2 days, flying to Boston, not sure if it's wise to play Price again.

If Price loses confidence in himself because Budaj start the 2nd game in 2 nights after flying in for the start of 6 games in 9 nights...then he wasn't cut out for this job.

Give him a little pablum, check if his milk is not scalding, make sure to support his head, I kid ! But man listen to yourself, Price isn't your wife or a small child.

I'd start Budaj. We have a crazy schedule over the next two weeks. Price had a really poor game and it's a back-to-back. Price can regain his confidence Tuesday on the Island.

I'd also like to get Weber in there, but not sure who would sit. Kaberle was probably our best defenseman last night. Gorges, Bouillon and Subban were all bad and Markov wasn't much better. But it's hard to sit the big-3 and Bouillon has MT's heart in his pocket.

Weber is a Bruin killer though.

12 games, 5 goals, 10 points. A production rate of ~14 1/2 minutes.

Price tired? No way. If anything, he was rusty last night. Unless he's hurt, play him tonight.
