If Rogers punches Don Cherry's ticket,the next question will be: do they add an additional Leaf Pom Pom girl to the broadcast team?

Barack Obama is despised by many because he is a hollow fraud and crude partisan.PK gets called for the marginal stuff because he is a black guy. Just saying

" Did the zebras screw the Canadiens out of a win that would have tied this series?" Yes.Now that you mention it they did. Not that the 20 minute third period penalty kill helped

Aren't all stud goalies 9-17 in playoff action ?

Actually it reminds me more of Claude Julien losing his job because he did not want to put up with two soft goals a game by Jose Theodore and wanted to win instead. At least in that case Theodore had actually won a Vezina not simply thrilled his fans by finishing fifth in the balloting.If Peter Budaj had not stoned the Bruins twice we would be seeing another series instead of this one altogether.But having played well in Game Two he now has a pass for the entire series and probably the next one even if that is in 2014.Not only does Price not respond to pressure well enough to win a series but the games he starts tend to turn into blow outs. Enough already.

Don't hate Price but he is vastly over rated relative to his record and have not gone to bed either.He played well tonight and deserves praise but when he sucks like he did last night, he sucks big time and that is much too often. See,its really simple.Praise when he is good.Criticism when he sucks.Try to learn how it works

I don't suddenly think that Price is terrible. I think that he is vastly over rated and always has been, relative to his performance.He isn't Dryden.He isn't Roy, and he has not yet demonstrated that he is even Jose Theodore, who won a Vezina, a Hart and actually carried the team through some difficult playoff series before pucks started to look like aspirin tablets to him.He spends more time on his knees than a $20 hooker and that's why goals one and two beat him last night.

Bergevin's inactivity at the deadline was a positive thing not a negative one when you consider what teams like Pittsburgh and Dallas gave up for rent a players they will not be able to fit under the new cap.He is looking beyond this year and it has been awhile since we have seen that from top level management.Meanwhile this team has already demonstrated that it can put together some decent streaks of good hockey and the conference is wide open.Not even Pittsburgh should confuse with Central Red Army circa 1981.We may still see a few series this season.

37 shots at the other end and you want to pass this off as a "team" debacle ? Dan Nile isnt only a river in Egypt.

Would love to see Price win a series or four but nothing in his resume suggests that he is capable of that.Even in 2008 when he won one, he was badly outplayed by the mighty Marty Biron in the second round and any subsequent noise the Habs made in the playoffs was due to Halak. I am old enough to have seen Plante,Dryden and Roy and unless Price is a very late bloomer he will not be in the class of any of these.Its difficult for a goaltender to be effective when he drops to his knees and remains there as the puck crosses his blue line. We will soon see if the media cheering for his presumptive talent is justified or not
