aside from the SJ game, price has been almost flawless. After the SJ game, I can only think of one goal that he would like back. Besides that, he has given the team a chance to win every night since the huet deal.
i dont want to forget halak either. He was stellar in the game against the kings and didnt even look rusty. I have so much confidence in both goalies right now.
Price played a great game tonight...he looked really sharp. Good to see the Habs pull off such a huge win against the Devils....those were 2 much needed points.
After the way Price played tonight, I have no problem with him being the #1 guy until the season is over....he has earned it. But I hope they give Halak a couple more games before the playoffs so he isn't cold, just in case Price gets hurt or doesn't play well.
Great effort. What I like about Price is how effortless he makes it look because he is positioned well.
Where can I get a shot chart? It did seem like many of the shots were from the outside and that some close chances got blocked. Not trying to take anything away from Price's effort but more curious to see as a reflection of the defence.
The best stat from the game last night - 3rd period shots: Habs 15, NJ 5. Love it. Reminds me of the 80s when the Habs got a lead and then shut the door on the opposition. (led by a certain G.Carbonneau and B.Gainey)
Montreal will never play a sufficiently tight and defensive game for Price to match Brodeur in shutouts.
Oh-oh... I feel Mr Gazoo has made a come back
How do you know? Basing yourself on this season only is ridiculous. With all the good dmen being molded in the organization, you can't say it won't happen. Also, I don't know if you realize, but New Jersey's system was based on Montreal's previous success...
