It's not the fact that they lost 2 in a row.
It's how they lost and how late into the season they lost.

or worse. what hapens if Budaj serves up a stinker? then what? On one hand, the Price haters have nothing left to hang their hats on, on the other, we lose...so....


but the worst case whould be another game like the last two where only a handful of guys put in the effort.

Therrien has coached his life out to get a 15th place team to turn it around and believe that they could win. I think clinching so early has caused our guys to feel maybe a little elite but toronto and philly took that away. I hope they play to win tonight and make us forget the last two games.
It's tricky. Maybe they should be totally self-regulating, but no group is. Yeah, these guys are pros, but professionals of all ages and businesses get psyched out. Nothing you can do to stop it. I mean, can you think of another reason why the same team that was beating everyone for 40 games suddenly morphed into timid, disorganized mice with a head-case goalie?

Don't you think the motivation should have come last game? They knew they had to have a bounceback game after toronto. It's not like they were great outside of Carey. They scored more against Philly!

The not being motivated thing was just an excuse, yup, an excuse (and I also think you get motivated before facing the leafs on sat night).

Basically, they just played like crap both games, it happens, but now it must stop.

You mean the ones where it was a wide open game and we stayed with them till the end ?

Or the one where it was a defensive battle and the best player in the world gave them the edge ?

Compared to the last 2 games, one of those battles would be much needed, even if it is a loss.

We do not really believe Budaj is a 7-1-1 goale right? Sure he is overdue for a few losses. Those things do even out over time. Good thing this is a asterisk season.

Right, I forgot about the 1-0 loss.

I would not want another 7-6 type game. I want to see the defense... you know.. not suck.

Well, if it is 7-6 again at least our defense will be consistent

Budaji has proven that he can win games when the habs come to play. He can be solid and make the timely saves, but he can't be faulted if the habs continue to make it easy to enter and control their zone.

Shortened season has nothing to do with it, he wouldn't get a lot of starts in an 82 game season anyway. He was overplayed in Colorado behind a bad team. No reason he can't do what Emery is doing right now.

We're either in this race to win or we're not. By taking Beaulieu out, it looks like we're doing neither.
Beaulieu in my opinion isn't ready for the NHL to even profit from his experience. He should be with the Dogs.

Of the call ups we've had, he's been exposed the most. I think we should give Pateryn, Tinordi, or even St. Denis a shot.

Going with a few friends. If RDS or anyone shows 3 college aged Habs fans holding a Quebec flag with one Penguins fan and anyone remembers please take a screenshot or something...

Have fun! Hope it's a great game to be at (cuz we win). While you're there, ask the Pens faithful to name 3 players playing in tonight's game. They'll probably pull a Rick Perry.

I hope they come out big...

Prust is the heart of this team, and it shows.

I'm fully expecting a Habs loss so that usually means the Habs will win.

Dumont is still with the club so he will probably be the first choice?

Blunden is, too I think.

I would guess:

17-14-21
67-51-11
8-81-27
32-24-45

Fantastic. Who needs goal scorers anyway?

So Prust takes his place on the Eller line I suppose? And Blunden in?

I think they should have shown some confidence in Price and play him in this game.
