Traffic. That's it. He goes freakin' nuts if he gets any kind of contact after whistle. Gallagher gets under his skin, now we need that from Gio, patches, army, moen, Ryder. No more easy shots PLEASE

People making this a Price thing are ridiculous.

Price only gets dangerous chances.

Anderson only gets pathetic chances.

What games are you Price-haters watching?

games 2 and 3, Price kept us in the game for soooo long. Then someone gets a chance wide open in the crease...what do you think will happen??? What if it happens again and again and again. People say Price letting a goal in deflates the team. It's the reverse.

The best chance we had all night was that Gio breakaway. Yeah, would be nice to score a goal on our one actual dangerous chance. Bourque fanned on the pass from Pleks. That would have gone in.

Honestly, just play like an NHL team and stop sucking offensively.

Defensively - Emelin

Offensively - Eller

That and it looks like 90% of our team is seriously injured. I can't explain how crap they played last game apart from them being injured. Such bad hockey. Anderson is so used to easy saves, all we have to do is surprise him with a moderately good shot. I do not remember once when the call was "Greeeeeat save by Anderson".

We will not score on Anderson if we are playing like right now. Sacrifice your body to crash the net or to block his view and you are guarantee to score on him. Unfortunately, the Habs does not have the right player.

This.

He's not beating us, we're beating ourselves.

Habs remind me of Washington in 2010: many shots but mostly from far and a weak PP.
and Anderson reminds me of Halak

He's playing great. You can't *beat him*. What you can do is give him hell.
Traffic.
Better shots.
Hit the defence.
Make them and everyone in the arena know that when 5 white sweaters cross the blue line, there's a good potential for some scoring to be done.
Right now he's sitting back knowing he's going to take some pepper to the chest, his team's gonna clear the puck and go on offence. Put him on his toes.
If the Habs do everything right, he's still going to stop nearly everything, but he's going to let a couple in, and that's how you win.

Maybe in game 1. Not in gm 2 nor in gm 3 re: being anything close to Halak.

Halak did get lots of blocking and great team play, but he also made sensational saves on very dangerous players. Anderson has not had to do that at ALL throughout the series, even in the game that we won (compared to halak that is and FTM Price this series in gm2 and gm3).

The only game where Anderson played great was game 1 and still, we should have created better chances than that no matter how many shots we registered.

We need to be moving the puck, quickly, not fumbling it and knowing what we're going to do as a 5 man unit. When the Habs have done that this year, they've been awesome. Unfortunately Markov was a big part of that (as was Emelin IMO), but now he's actually killing the plays. The best way to slay a viking is with a viking.

Lars...

btw, let's just say that Bourque's goal last game was the winning one. What would people say about Mandy? What about White's goal in gm2? We just need to freaking TRY to score.

Attacking and standing in front of the net is the key, we know it and Im sure the team knows it. Its all about execution but the only guys executing are Bourque and of course Gallagher. MT needs to talk to Patches because Patches is big enough and can be physical enough to do this, but isn't, preferring to shoot from the outside of the face-off circle. Prust will do it but unfortunately hes not the most skilled guy, but still, hell do it and cause problems.
