    White in for Weise. Otherwise Ok. Briere has been playing better lately and deserves more ice time. Egg line back together. And Vanek up front with Patches for some definite size advantage on that line. Looks good. Now score some goals. "A cannonading blast from the wing, by Lafleur"

    Not necessarily. We gave them three goals and we were still right there. It was the fourth one that killed us. I think just making a timely save could have proved the difference last night. That 4th goal to me was inexcusable. That gives players and coaches nightmares. "A cannonading blast from the wing, by Lafleur"

    In a one goal game when your team is busting it's ass to tie the game late in the game and your goalie gives up a terrible game ending goal which takes all the air out of the tires that is where the game is lost. It was not lost because of the players being tired, two games in two nights, and all that BS. The game is either won or lost usually by bad plays. PK knows that scenario all too well. So lets let the blame lie where it belongs for once, not on PK shoulders, not on the players, how about a weak untimely goal by the goalie. If you can't admit that then enjoy a life of mediocrity.

    How so? You didn't see the Habs dominate the second period. You didn't watch them have a goal disallowed, while a Phoenix goal was allowed that should have been disallowed. And then Budaj lets in the weakest goal I think I have ever witnessed to take us effectively out of the game when we were down by ONE goal with plenty of time to tie it up. Yup, that's the game we all watched. Which game was it that you were watching? "A cannonading blast from the wing, by Lafleur"

    Good one. It is frustrating that the difference between a starter, like Price, and a back-up like Budaj, has to be showcased in just about every game Budaj, or another back-up plays. Can't we ever have a guy come in for us, and stone the other team like what happens to us at least 10 times a season. Oh, wait a minute we thrived on that situation for years didn't we, with Dryden, Penny, and then Roy. I guess we've used that trick up. "A cannonading blast from the wing, by Lafleur"

    Absolutely. Two weak wrist shot goals from bad angles against Pittsburgh. The terrible 4th goal last night. 1-2 weak ones every game. They cost you and last night his 4th goal allowed cost us 2 pts. The team could not bail him out. "A cannonading blast from the wing, by Lafleur"

    Exhausted? They out shot Phoenix 11-1 in the second. We were down only one goal with 7-8 minutes left in the 3rd, until Budaj lets in one of the stinkiest goals ever. Which effectively took us out of the game. if I am a player on the team I am not happy with my goalie today. Plain and simple. it cost us the game. "A cannonading blast from the wing, by Lafleur"

    Don't blame the team, the schedule, or base this loss on the easy excuse that the players were 'tired'. Budaj was awful. That is clearly where the loss belongs, on his shoulders. We were clearly in the game, down by one and pressing for the tying goal with 7-8 minutes left in the third when he lets in a horrid looking 4th goal. Just awful. Make a save already. That goal looked like my goalie back in Tyke days many moons ago. This is why Budaj is and will be a career back-up, 1-2 weak goals every game. Can't make a timely save. When the heck is Price coming back??? On another note how does DD interfere with anyone let alone a goalie? He's 5'5, 150 lbs. If they had called goalie interference on Phoenix second goal (which it clearly was as Budaj's stick was lifted and he was interfered with by the player going through the crease. Yes it's a subtle play, but anyone who has played hockey knows how to do that to a goalie to throw him off balance) then I have no problem with our goal being waived off also. However, and as is usual with the refs they can't get it right. What is a penalty at one end is not called at the other. No consistency. i think that is why MT was so pissed at that call on DD. Call it both ways you morons. "A cannonading blast from the wing, by Lafleur" "A cannonading blast from the wing, by Lafleur"
