They are overplaying Markov. 27 minutes is too muchand Kaberle only got 11:42 that's too little kaberle was a -2 but neither was his fault, 1st was a lucky boun ce right to Grabner and the 2nd Price whiffed on a point shot.

Price once again refused to speak to the media. Something is up.

Just a bad game all around, especially with d zone coverage and Price's lackluster play. Hope it is a one-off and they can get back to their winning ways shortly. BTW, the Isles are indeed our kryptonite.

I'm not blaming the refs for the loss but I'd be interested in some stats when Tim Peel refs a Habs game.. Stats like wins vs losses, PP's, PK's.. It seems like they lose way more games than what they win when this guy refs Habs games.

They aren't a playoff team in the Atlantic but they'd probably win the Southeast. They have great special teams, and this was without Visnovsky, their best PMD. When Nabakov has the energy they go on runs, we weren't the first good team they beat and won't be the last.

You obviously know very little about hockey, thats not about shots, thats about scoring chances where we have been quite dominated.. The team played aweful in front of Price all night long.. 1 questionable goal was the last one but it seems to have deflected on Bouillon' stick..

Groulx and Price solve whatever makes him play like S. Mason, Therrien whips the D into shape and we`re golden. I hope that at the end of the year we`ll laugh about our anxiousness. Meanwhile bag skate and play Budaj.

The defense really hasn't been that much worse than Price, imo.

It's a team game.

The defense letting up coverage on prime time players in the slot like Moulson and Tavares... And Neal and Kunitz in the Pittsburgh game... How can we really blame him??

Galchenyuk and Pacioretty were wasting possession in the last stretch of the game by taking dumb shots where they had no angles.

So choked but Isles beat us fair. Habs played poorly and that Tavares line just wrecks us. If I have to lose a team, the Islanders are near the top of my list.

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.


Well said.

MB only job right now is to bolster this atrocious defense. I'm going to say what I said 2 years ago, and then the year after that. Markov is done. Time to move on.

Yes he was a fantastic player, but Kaberle is quicker on his feet ffs.

Folks suggested it earlier, but perhaps there's somebody he used to know.

Disappointing, but I'm not too upset about this one. It was a predictable let-down after two very emotional games and they weren't that bad. Hopefully this is just a reminder that they're not unbeatable and they get right back at it on Thursday.

I am a little concerned about Price though. No reason to panic by any means, but he hasn't looked good at all lately.

I think the crap this whole team gets is ridiculous.... we lost for the first time in regulation in 12 games.... can we freakin all breathe......

3rd game in 4 night, defense was off, Price was off, if after the next 3 games we are 0 and 3 allowed 10 or more goals and scored under 6, than we'll start asking ourselves questions....

With this D as it is, we get upset in the 1st round. I've been worried all year.

Nope. Did the same after the Pens game. He usually ALWAYS speaks to the media... even after losses.

That's fair....but the D and goaltending has been weak. It's worth a discussion.
