how did I know some people were gonna blame Price on this one... The team's defense tonight was horrible. Only the 4th goal should have been saved but on that goal Pacioretty took himself out the play to hit some guy even tho he had no stick...

Well that sucked. MT needs to work on his teams weak ass D coverage. I don't know what's up with Price but something is off with him lately.

Caps tie B's @ 3

kaberle and cube were terrible tonight and DD playing a bowling ball on markov - on 5th goal was quite pathetically funny

Blaming Price is the easiest way to go, and if you want to blame him go ahead.

But, while he play has been less than stellar since he came back from the flu, the overall defensive effort by the team the last few games has been atrocious. Even Budaj who supposedly played an amazing game vs the Bruins, let in 3 goals. You can't always expect to win games 5-4 and 4-3.

How many times have we seen an opposing player completely left alone in the slot? It's ridiculous. Defensemen are being beat by the backdoor play on a consistent basis. Forwards aren't covering the opening shot at the top. It's like we've completely lost any sense of a defensive structure.

I would worry about Price but I know it's just a matter of time before he gets his game back. We just can't expect to make a deep playoff run playing that type of D. It's not going to work vs. teams like the Penguins, Bruins, Leafs.

On a brighter note, I think we just got a glimpse of the great defensemen PK will become for us in the future. Absolutely stellar.

I like the D involvement on offence, but we are a very soft team in our own end. Face off coverage is awful. Out schemed on set plays.

Price needs to give a ****. Arguably the worst player on the ice over a string of games now...

Especially when we scored 9 goals. I mean, come on. You score 9 goals in 2 games, you should have a pretty good chance of winning both those games.

I don't have a problem going back to Budaj for the next one if that's what it takes to remind Price to get his head in the game.

Sorry but when you give up 3 goals scored by someone alone in the slot, your defense is horrible.
Defensive coverage was poor, but Price is being paid to make some of those saves to give us a chance. He hasn't given us a chance recently and it's frustrating to see considering how well we've been playing as a team overall.

He needs to be better, that's all there is to it.

This one is all on Price unfortunately. Even the goals before the 4th one, he didn't seem like he was in it. Looked like he wasn't able to get into that extra gear to make the save. He's now cost us the last 2 games he played, amazing goalie and i'm sure he'll rebound, but this sucks. We could be on a 3 game winning streak if it wasn't for him.

This D is worrisome. They won't last long in the playoffs with this D. Price (or Budage) will need to step up.

Rough game for Price... two in a row.

Tonight though we really did let players walk into the slot by themselves. Yeah, Price could've stopped some of them but our coverage has to be better than that.

D coverage is ass cheeks, but it has been ass all year...it just so happens that teams are starting to score on us now.

I really wan to see us go after a big, physical Dman that can clear the front of the net.

Also, the forwards do a poor job of picking up the trailer. Happens way too often.

Lose Bourque, trade Cole and we are moving right back to being the softest team in the league. I was hoping MB would move us towards becoming a team with character.

It's not 100% his fault but he wasn't very good. He's gotta bail his players out sometimes.

This is a legitimate question. I was wondering the same. In which case, I'd kinda understand.
