Of course. But let's get to that point and capture the Cup first, shall we?

I've been hard on Price, but that's only because I expect excellence out of him. Others should hold him to that same standard. He can be better. He has to be better.

I don't think I've ever yelled louder. I'm dead right now. The Bell was a riot tonight, for all the right and wrong reasons.

Same here. My heart is fine but I lost my voice and my face is still burning right now. Hard to take games like that, especially when you see the BS that took place.

You might, I don't.

I really hope he can make me trust him again, but I'm scared every time a shot gets taken on our net. I feel like Thibault is back there.

This, except I'd rather see Halpern in than Armstrong.

Price in net.

Sure but I'm not convinced Price was the main reason we lost, let alone the only. As soon as they couldn't capitalize on a 5 on 3, I knew what was coming next.

And really, Diaz and Gorges made nothing easier. Subban deserves the Norris just by comparing how the rest our our D looks without him.

Absolutely not the main reason we lost, but it's hard to swallow when you think that a difference-making save or two could have meant a W. Price has to be as good if not better than Anderson for us to win, it'll come down to that, I feel. I had a bad feeling when we scored 1 goal in that prolonged PP as well. It's hard to get a chance to end the game and bury a couple on Anderson and not capitalize. sigh.

Diaz and Gorges were godawful tonight. Not godawful enough that Drewiske should be in, though.

I knew it too, I knew Price will **** the bed on the third allowing a least a softy.

You know the guys in front will be a bit flat after a 27 shots period, its Price turn to play well because he didn't do anything in the the 2nd part of the 2nd period. He had time to rest in the intermission, his mission on the third was to keep that lead, knowing the team gave a lot of energy and emotion in the 2nd... but sadly, he chocked again.

This post isn't to dump on Price, it's to put things in perspective... When I mention Price I mean Price playing in front of Habs D Corps+System. When I mention Anderson, I mean Anderson playing in front of Sens D Corps+System...

This season, Anderson had .941 SV%. Price had .905 SV%. That means any given team wanting to score 3 goals on Anderson, had to shoot on average 51 times. Any given team wanting to score 3 goals on Price had to shoot 31 times.

In the playoffs (without SOW)...

To beat the Sens 4-3, the shots need to be on average Habs 68 to Sens 31.
To beat the Sens 3-2, the shots need to be on average Habs 51 to Sens 21. (What we should be counting on to win)...

If habs continue to play like first 2 periods the odds will be in our favour. We were good and hoping we don't lose a beat in game 2. Obviously, we need some more traffic and better rebound shots.

We need to get the first goal, continue playing our game (dont make it into a grindfest) and challenge their players at the blueline. It's too easy to gain the zone.

If I'm Michel Therrien, this is how I prepare the boys before Game 2.

I walk in.
I post this on the bulletin board.

I then say, "If that doesn't wake you the **** up and put a spark in your ass, you don't deserve these playoffs."
I leave.

I wouldn't even say anything. I'd just post it there and walk out.

Exactly what I'd do.

I'd walk in. Post it on the bulletin board and walk right back out.

Probably the better option. Slap that to the bulletin board, creating a huge bang in the lockeroom. Turn around and leave. Don't even look them in the eyes.

Better yet, have Eller walk in and post it.

If that doesn't fire the team up, nothing will.

As good as I thought we played overall, our best chances came when Gallagher was giving Anderson a fit in front of the net. We need to keep doing that.
