Not a fun game to watch, we got outplayed 40 minutes but we manage to finally win a game by playing 15 minutes, something we didn't do in the last few years. That means this teams has guts and skills. If next year we replace Gionta with a bigger winger and one of Tinordi or Beaulieu have a good season we are going to be serious contenders.
I'd like to make my mea culpa on Price, i was hard on him last year because he had a lot of issues but the hiring of Whaite as made wonders on him. He is just not the same goalie than last year. Much more calm and poised. If he doesn't get the net at Sotchi it will be a disgrace.
1. Stops Jagr from reaching in from behind the next and stuffing in a goal with his massive reach in the 1st period. Saved a sure goal!
2. Puts his stick in exactly the right position by Price's head and stops another sure goal.
I think I missed one when he deflected a puck that was heading for the open side of the net late in the second as well.
Exactly. Take Note team Canada. Montreal won this game on the play of Subban (just outstanding, everygame, I mean how can anyone doubt this kid?) and of Price. Price made all the Key saves (except 2, those were all Subban).
