This game is probably more worrisome than the Pittsburgh one because they got outplayed throughout and had to rely on Price to keep them in. There's still a lot of work for Martin to do. There were encouraging signs in previous game, but the team is clearly still very much a work in progress.
Good thing: Price did very well. But the team has got to give him more support.
We really didn't deserve to win. We certainly could have. I just hate losing a game in the dying minutes of the third. There's no excuse. Clamp down, tighten up on defense and make sure they get no shots. Little kids are taught this, why are professionals not doing the same.
They played one of the better teams in the league and lost a close game in the last few minutes. I think they did pretty well. Price deserved a win tonight, but at least he looked very confident in nets. I think taking a break and getting some of the pressure off did him some good.
I said all game he was solid...he was weak on that goal. I call it like I see it. Unlike you.
Typical Price...spectacular all game...and then when you need him to make a save at 2-2 with less than 6 minutes left, he chokes. He was too deep in his net compared to where the shooter was. Crappy play that cost us at least a point.
I'm not an andrei hater, but damn he makes me mad sometimes. Even in the offensive zone. Players like Gionta know where the play is going and is one step ahead. Andrei, many times, seems one step behind which makes it look like he's lazy even though he's trying.
The sad part is, Price played an awesome game and closed the door at 2-0.. if only he could've made that clutch save. Hopefully people remember the whole game he played and not just that last goal that he gave up. Same could be said for AK.. he played a DECENT game, still not up to expectations, but everyone is going to remember how he just got dangled around by PKane.. believe it or not, PKane dangled around a lot of our players today.
