But then there's the Bettman factor.

Isn't Bettman from NY? 'nuff said.

Holy crap, Price facing a game's worth of shots in a period and a bit. Good thing the all star break is coming up he will need the rest.

Here Here!! Is there a more enthusiastic guy out there in hockey land that PK? Man that guy is the best ambassador for hockey and community good will since Jean Beliveau.

Radical thinking here but I wonder if it is time for the NHL (and AHL) to start major fines and suspensions every time a goaltender is hit by "accident" or other wise. This is the third time in recent memory for Price and it is really getting old. Goaltenders can't prepare for a collision because their focus is on preventing the puck from crossing the goal line in every situation. By comparison, the league takes into consideration the player's ability to prepare for a hit in the case of boarding or checking from behind when discipline is meted out. I'm thinking a $50,000.00 fine for the player plus a 5 game suspension plus a $250,000.00 fine for the team and a warning that for the next incident the penalties are doubled. What do others think?

I agree that Carey is the man but in defense of MT (did I really just write that?) he is looking for an offensive spark and if that means juggling the lines and moving guys in and out of the line up then so be it. I don't know of many teams at any level that doesn't do this if only to keep things fresh. I will be patient, after all I certainly didn't think this year's team would have the record they have at the half way point of the season. There are things that we all know need improvement; the PP, reducing the shots against, more offense, quicker start etc. let's see what the next 12 games or so produce.

He just didn't see it, he played it correctly by taking away the low shot and was in position to cope with a rebound or deflection. Move on, nothing to see here. Bring on the third.
