My best pal works with Dale's cousin. We're all cousins here in Winnipeg. Great guy, great goal.

@ mdp2011 Palat going out is bigger than people think. The kid is a 200-foot player and he's the kind of player that can skate with the Habs and beat them. He earned his time with Stamkos and he's a threat. Kudos to PK for hitting him twice, the second time rocked him good.

We come back bigger, stronger, faster, and with yet more Subbans!

I agree on the coaching, there's gotta be a give-and-take. Given PK's point totals I don't think he's on the leash MT gets blasted for having him on, but I agree that the team needs to work on how best to react to the things that only PK is capable of doing. That smells a bit like changing a team to accommodate a single player, but there's room to go there - IF - the player can reciprocate and temper his instinctual skills with wise defense. I think it's possible but it looks dicey in the moment.

We're expecting an improvement on those numbers, and he's added to them. I love Price, he's a great goalie. But he's gotta prove himself in the playoffs, gold medal or no. I've seen his softies, I've watched his nerves, I've seen the team help and hurt him. But it's on him to excel and it's within him to excel. It just needs to happen.

If he keeps it up in clutch-tying-goal dept. we'll be alright.

Absolutely, I may be flat-out wrong. Totally jumping the gun. I really do hope he makes me eat my words. But he needs to show and prove on the ice.

He's a scary player to have as the last man back in one-goal games. That's what kills me. He no longer wants to be coached. And it gets papered over because he's so gosh darn likeable. Huge hip checks, sure, but he needs to avoid taking himself out of the play when doing it. Pacioretty did the same thing finishing a check in the O-zone last night when Vanek had the puck and I did a double-take. I wish these guys would stick to throwing the checks when it separates the man from the puck.

I'm not veiling it, Twi. Flat-out saying it. It's in plain sight for pete's sake.
