The Habs really need to improve their penalty kill if they want to go far in the playoffs.

This seems to point at Carey Price first...

He lost sight of the puck on the second goal but you can not blame him for the two goals in PP.

It is easy to blame Carey these days.
Truth is the whole team was ugly in first 25-30 minutes.

Price was the best goalie on the ice last night. Do not tell me that Brodeur was busy. Not only quantity but quality also.

Do they offer constructive ideas on how to do it?

Considering their last few articles posted here, I'm not going to give them any traffic. It's usually poorly written and mostly sensationalism/fluff complaining.

Correct me if I am wrong.

Agreed, and its not a news article, but an opinion piece.

Bergevin dropped the ball and Price let it in the net.

Price needs to improve his breakaway performance.

As far as I know, a breakaway (penalty shot) is more dangerous than a penalty kill.

Although, previously in the season Carey would have stopped this.

Just noting that only one name here.
Price is not the only one having problem in the first half, the whole team has been bad for the last 6 games.

Yep.

But not only that... the WHOLE season, he's been getting beaten by straight shots ; no fakes, no screens, just plain straight shots. Yesterday was another example.

I don't know why because he had no such issues last year, but this year, if there's any player winding up for a shot and there's nobody in front of him, Price will usually get beaten.

Very strange and disconcerting.

What the hell? What straight shot was he beaten by yesterday? A goal from a player left alone in front of the net, a breakaway goal and a tip. Carey price a great game yesterday and he still gets blamed for the loss.

And no price is fine with breakaways, but since he got scored on one yesterday he must be terrible at stopping breakaways. Knee jerk reaction fans nothing more nothing less.

Don't call this news because it isn't.

Price is sucking. The PK is sucking. The defense is sucking. The offense is sucking. The penalty kill is sucking.

There.

Most people are polarized, meaning they'll either blame Price regardless of what he does while others will praise/save him no matter what.

I'm calling it as I see it. Elias' goal, while a breakaway, illustrates exactly what I'm referring to, which is a player in front of him who takes a straight shot without any dangles or moves and gets beaten by it. It doesn't matter if it's a breakaway, or a player standing still in the faceoff circle. He gets beaten *so* often and it's been happening during the entire season. In fact, I mentioned it to a couple of buddies of mine a month into the season.

It's easy to notice, but if people have their "Price can do no wrong" glasses on, it's next to impossible to see how weak he is one-on-one.

What about how many teams are thrilled to have 59+ pts?

They need to fix the PK.
They need to fix the PP.
They need to fix the forwards who have been floating around for the past two weeks who haven't been helping the D.

Not sure why it's not just merged with the other Price thread.

It's not a News Article by any means. Sponsor or not, this is just an opinion piece, and should go with the rest of the opinions (ie: Price thread)

The biggest problem with this is "the hockey writers" is a crap site. In no way is this a news article. It's a blogger who's banded up with a bunch of other bloggers to start a legitimate-looking site. I'm not dissing bloggers, because some of them are awesome and have great content and excellent sources. But this bunch is just a group of fan bloggers who legitimized themselves under "the hockey writers." They know less than half of the people here.

Our penalty kill has taken a more passive approach. And its not working. Similar to what Martin employed.

This approach added to Price being shaky has not helped the team. I hope that Therrien believes in adjustments.

If you're going to claim he sucks on breakaways, prove it, because I guarantee you are wrong. But let's face it you're just going to throw these statements out without doing anything to back them up. If you're going to trash price fine, trash him the leafs game trash him if it helps you sleep at night, but seriously he's been the best he's ever been on breakaways this season, but like I said knee jerk reactions are the biggest problem with this fan base.
