Lack of grit and intensity of the Habs' two scoring lines. Lack of presence in the slot in front of Biron. Too many wasted shots on goal when we don't even have a play. We are making Biron look much better than he really is.
problem with our PP (from what Ive noticed) is that we keep running the same **** over and over again. Other teams have adjusted to it but we havent mixed it up. Also...they always have a man pressuring the point which causes us to make an errand pass, or make a pass/take a panic shot that ends up going wide, getting blocked or getting picked. Also...the MAJORITY of the time...our point guys have struggled with keeping the puck in the zone.
I hate how we're not finishing.... specifically missing the net or hitting Biron when there is open net to shoot at. If we can fix that, we have a very good shot at still winning the series. We've come back from down 3-1 against a stronger team than this. I still believe.
Whats frustrating is that I know we can win this, but literally bad bounces and missed opportunities are stopping us.
Literally, we go for it for the first period, until the Flyers get one, then they get two or three. We make our comeback and its either just short or we re-lose the game. Its literally like we are losing twice in each game.
1) How many goalposts did we hit in this series? About as many times as the team has scored in the last 4 games.
2) Carey Price's glovehand.
3) Just how does the refereeing change from regular season to playoffs? It's like watching rugby on ice right now.
4) Maybe toss Ryder in there for a game?
