not playing bad - a couple of breakdowns = 2 goals. the difference? we're still too tiny in our top 9 AND we don't have the size to score dirty goals on the PP. Desharnais is embarrassing up front, gionta not doing much, patches injured
2 things I'd love to see Price working on....close range, keep your freakin stick flat on the ice protecting the 5-hole. Price is big. A guy close range CANNOT score on you except....5-hole. If the stick is there, they do not score. And he still moves a lot in front of his net. He doesn't need to. He fix this, he becomes better.
Having said that, he wasn't weak tonight. He had a very good game so far. But didn't save the day. That breakaway would have been a turnover.
Anyway, 3rd period coming. Nothing is done obviously.
The Lupul goal was under the pad not the 5-hole thought.
So far Reimer is the difference, he's stopped a lot of great chances. Price hasn't played bad but he hasn't made as many big saves. I'm sure he'd like the 1st one back. 2nd one was a great shot. 3rd he seemed to commit before the shooter.
Someone clearly didn't see that glove save in the first...or that butterfly save right before it for that matter.
