Game Analysis: Pregame And Postgame Discussion

Recommended Posts

A spate of shots that seldom score,

in state of shock, that we've not more;

to own the goal must be the aim,

if this wild Philly, we're to tame!

Like Red Wings, we should know our place,

just as we were in Conference race;

our game today, seems not the same,

that got us tops in the Eastern frame.

A fluctuation in the Price,

has been one reason, on the ice;

but lest you lower his esteem,

he needs a chance to so redeem.

And, blameless, not, the rest of team,

though, most of time, they're on the beam;

Biron's been very tough to beat,

so, blame him, for our last defeat!

GO HABS GO!

  • It certainly is not an either/or -- I feel "at fault" for being down 2-1 in this series has Price in the bottom Hab quartile. Team effort? Yes, it certainly is.
  • Goaltending most certainly matters; I was stating, against these Flyers, it shouldn't matter whether it is Price or Halak. Both are more than good enough (and I feel Price has been; may not have been his best, but good enough against these Flyers) if the rest of the the team would just perform (score some goals, score in the 1st half of the game, and don't flub so expensively in the Hab zone (cough-ups, own-screens and own-deflections). If the Habs need the goaltender to steal them games against the Flyers, well, it'll be the last series for the Habs, 'cause they ain't gonna win 4 games all 1-0 against the Pens (I know, I am exxagerating to illustrate a point here! ;) ).
I have seen a plethora of Price-centric posts, blaming him, and the media is loving the "Price-gambit": it is a simple story, to centre the spectre of failure in place of success upon a single person, particularly one who plays the position of last defense. Quite simply (IMHO), Price has not played all that poorly, and the key elements of support for him have been, despite best efforts, absent (goals scored, and clear lanes for shots to defend). All the Habs are trying; others (many Habs) are failing greater than Price, IMHO.

i see your point. but as, i think, larryrobinson pointed out it's the nature of the goaltending biz: the goalies get credit for as many wins as they do losses.

the team has to play better, no question, and i will support carbo's decision no matter what it is, but this is the playoffs; two losses and if you're not getting the job done, no matter how the team is playing in front of you, you should sit. i don't like the way the team is playing in front of price so if a shake up is what they need so be it.

theres nobody to blame, blaming Biron is kinda lame,cause for all the shots we take,many not screened ,many un-named, EXCEPT WITH HIS NAME

keep in control and NEVER throwing it away, keep it like in formation ,and when it's time to shoot,shoot with PRECISION ,but make it fast, cause no point in passing it around, if your slower than the goaltender.

do not let Flyers out wit you around our net, do not follow, but inject, do not give them the chance..WE ALL WILL REGRET

ONE GAME ONE HEART ONE HEART WHICH LOVES RIGHT FROM THE START

WE NEED YOU,FOR JUST, THIS ONE, JUST TO REMEMBER WHAT WE'VE DONE

A FULL YEAR NOT FOR A TITLE BUT TO CARRY A COUNTRY TO FACE ITS ENEMY

AN ENEMY MUST BE WITHIN AS YOU'VE PROVEN WE CAN WIN ALL

SO SEE YOUR PLAYS IN LASER PRECISE AND THEN WE'LL GET A FAIR ROLL OF PUCKS DICE

WITH WIDEN EYES WE SEE THIS GLORY AND BUST THESE CHAINS OF 2ND

THOSE FORCED TO REST LOST IN PURGATORY THEIR CARDS ARE DEALT AND OLD FRIENDS MOVE OUT

AN HEIR OF HABS GREAT PASSION HAS RUNG TRUE AGAIN FROM ALL- ALL LOSE OF DOUBT

NOW LET IT BE SAID THIS GAME 5 OUR TEAM STEPS IN FROM BEHIND

AND ANOTHER LOOKS TO FINISH A FIGHT TURNS TO ONLY A DREAM ONCE VIEWED AS DESIRE

OUR INTENT MASKED NOW BY VENGEFULL FIGHT

ALL GIVE A HOLLER AS OUR CANADIENS CRASH THESE FLYERS

AND ALL DRINK A ROUND CAUSE TOMS BUYIN:)
