Yes, I am sure Price is so mentally and physically drained from that game last night that there's no way he could go again tonight.

He probably could go if needed, but why push it when we have a well rested 1A/1B goalie ready to go.

I forsee a lot of Price/Halak whining in this GDT. (Moreso than usual)

Cause what if we win tonight? Price sits again Sunday? Or is it suddenly you win, you sit?

I think Martin comes back with Price on Monday no matter what the outcome of tonight's game. I think he's just substituting Halak in this evening because of the short time frame between games.

It's Price's favourite night of the year .. why make him work?

In all honesty, I expected him to get the start tonight. Good on Martin though for starting Halak - it shows a reward for helping post an incredible road record.

The real trouble/question somes if Halak gets a victory tonight, then who gets the net the next game? Is Halak just starting tonight because of the back-to-back, even though last time it happened, Price played in both? Or was Price just subbing in for Halak to give him a break because Halak has been given the reigns for a short period? Ahh Montreal and our goalie controversary that will never change. lol

Anyway, any word on the forwards yet? Patches back in or staying on the bench?

Halak is the better goalie lately.

Normally I would whine about Halak getting the start but it doesn't bother me since Price had an excellent game last night and was a big reason why it went into OT. And I'm sure this doesn't bother him either since he has the satisfaction of knowing he did a job well done.

Happy new year guys!

Prove it.

You mean Halak got more starts after he cried to Gainey? Then yes..

God, why must we do this ..

The numbers do lie, an 82 game schedule isn't only played against the islanders and the carolinas of the NHL.

I agree, but the margin is very slim. Price has played very well in the past few weeks, no question. Somehow the team, all season, has been able to pick up wins with Halak in net over Price - it's just the way it's went and no completely reflective of goalie performances.

But like the say, the numbers don't lie. With Halak in net, we've picked up 20 of 32 possible points (.625 points%), which is on a season pace of over 100-points.

They've tried twice to give Price both back to back games, and he lost them both. He did get bad goal support from team and wasn't entirely to blame for losses, but he looked tired and was letting in a few softies.

Kinda had a feeling Halak would start. Price will most likely get the game Sunday vs the Sabres since that will be a tougher opponent.

Today's game is a bit scary though, end of the road trip, we are 5-1 so win or lose the boys will be happy. Florida is well rested too. Hopefully we can pick up the 2 points tho.
