All the negative Nancy's need to realize that if it wasn't for Price's incredible performance in the first the game would've probably ended 6-2. They had 9 shots before we got one in and at least 5 of those shots were legit scoring chances.

He didn't look too great on that Ovi floater, but I don't blame him at all for the end result. How many open nets did our forwards miss? Worse thing is, I won't blame them either. We had an unlucky game where the Habs were clearly better overall.

Chris ****ing Lee should get the first star of the game, he jammed his whistle so far up his ass he couldn't get it out in the third to call OBVIOUS penalties. I swear that dingdong must be butt buddies with Bettman, I can't believe he still has a job.

Canadiens Montréal ‏@CanadiensMTL 35m
Bourque is on a line with Gionta and Plekanec. Ryder is with Galchenyuk and Eller. Prust is with Moen and Halpern.
I'd go with:
Ryder Plekanec Gionta
Pacioretty Desharnais Bourque
Galchenyuk Eller Gallagher
Moen Halpern Prust

Le Petit Prince needs two big wingers. He'll struggle otherwise.

Lots of slow reactions by our team, they were off by 1 or 2 degrees

Switch Galchenyuk and Desharnais, and at this point, I'd be ok with it.
And keep the lines intact for PPs FFS

Bourque - Desharnais - Gionta
Galchenyuk - Eller - Gallagher

If DD really can't do anything without Pacioretty:
Ryder - Plekanec - Gallagher
Pacioretty - Desharnais - Bourque
Galchenyuk - Eller - Gionta
Moen - Halpern - Prust

Separate the midgets to 3 lines. Bourque perhaps recreating the Cole presence from 11/12 to make DD bounce back.

I too like to separate the three really small players. And I like Plekanec's line to include good defensive players so that they can play the tough minutes.

Ryder-Plekanec-Gionta
Eller-Galchenyuk-Gallagher
Pacioretty-Desharnais-Bourque
Prust-Halpern-Moen

PP1 - Pacioretty-Plekanec-Ryder
PP2 - Eller-Galchenyuk-Gallagher

PK1 - Plekanec-Moen
PK2 - Halpern-Prust
PK3 - Eller-Gionta

Both players are very raw, and both have some improvement to bring to their game before being impact players in the NHL, but while both had their weaknesses, only one of those two showed to me the STRENGTHS that made him a 1st rounder; and it's Beaulieu. Very few physical plays from Tinordi, and he definitely needs more seasonning before being able to bring it to the NHL level.

You may want to reserve the names in that first sentence. The rest of your post says the opposite.

i would switch Gallagher & Ryder on those two lines. I don't know why MT insists on keeping his worse line (for weeks) intact.

The Washington dedence wasn't perfect either yesterday the scoring chances were there for Montreal but Neuvirth shut the door.

All in all the habs played a little better than the caps. Where the Caps dominated at the beginning of the games the Habs dominated the beginning of the second until Washington first goal.

Yesterday the big difference was in net. Neuvirth had a better game then Price.

I prefer games reffed like that because that's the way it will probably be in the playoffs. Lots of things will be ignored. Let the team get used to that.

All you have to realize is that the habs had a really good start of the second where Neuvirth was also real good. If both goalie would have sucked the score would have finish something like 6 - 5 for the Habs because in the whole game they had a better game then the Caps. Or we could say it was evenly matched.

I'm not saying Price was bad yesterday, I'm saying Neuvirth was better and ultimately it's goaltending that made the difference in that game and Price got the short end of it.

Exactly. This particular Chris Lee ref-fest was perfectly acceptable in my eyes because of the reason you stated. This is how the playoffs are going to be reffed, and it's been this way for the longest time, so NO EXCUSES.

I think Price would look amazing facing low percentage all-star shooters Gio, Patches, DD, Gorges, Bouillon, Moen and Plekanec. Instead of facing the player with most goals since I wasnt even born. (Yes I was...)

Then we don't see eye to eye. I don't think Neuvirth was a big difference positively for the Capitals and I don't think Price was a big difference negatively for us. You can wrestle all day with which goalie played better, but neither would be the reason for the outcome, so I don't see the point. I think the fact that our third line was our best line and our first two lines were generally ineffective was the big difference in this game, and it makes more sense to me to focus on that.

Not sure why people are saying Price played bad, typical Habs drama fans. I thought he played fantastic. Granted I only saw about 85% of the game (I was watching while at work), but he looked great to me. Maybe I have a different perspective since I actually play goal. I only saw 2 of WAS goals, the one that popped up over Price and rolled in and the knuckle ball goal.

To someone who doesn't play goal, I can understand why you would think those were bad goals, but knowing how difficult it is to change your reaction timing for a shot you are expecting to rise that suddenly drops, is incredibly difficult to do. It goes against the exact opposite of what your muscle memory has been trained to do, which is to time the raising of your glove with the release of the puck.

As for the popup over the head goal, again, knowing how much skill, timing, and speed is required to not only stop a shot but try to trap it against your blocker, I can't blame Price for that weird goal.

In the 1st period alone, WAS had about 5 high % scoring chances within 7' of the Habs net and Price stopped them all. The score could have easily been 3-0 or 4-0 leaving the 1st if it wasn't for Price.

No one single player can be blamed for the loss yesterday. Both goalies made some amazing saves.

The Capitals score on a fluky goal where Chimera?? hit Price's pad with his stick which caused the puck to sail over his head and into the goal.

Combine that with a post that I think Pacioretty hit.

Could have easily been 3-2 Montreal. But that's the breaks. Sometimes they go your way like against Boston. Sometimes they go against you like last night.

Eleven forwards did not score a goal last night.

Six DMen did not score a goal last night.

Carey Price did not score a goal last night.

DD gets the blame. Bravo!!!!!
