Get real! By thirty quality shots I mean shots Price actually had to move to stop. They count long, outside shots that don't have a chance of getting through, which adds to the total. It's not like he was bombarded constantly. Look at the NHL stats and you'll see most teams give up an average of 28-33 shots a game. Giving up 48 once in a while isn't as bad as it looks.

I would expect to see fewer shots against from most teams. Tampa's system calls for everybody throwing everything they can at the net at every opportunity. That's why the shots were so high last night. There were maybe 30 quality shots and another 18 that really weren't much of a threat. Thirty shots isn't ideal either but it's not much outside what most teams allow on a normal night. The defence isn't that bad. It's still lucky that Price was excellent because a lot of those 30 quality shots were hard to stop.

Can't make it this time around, Ian. Maybe next time.

My name has nothing to do with it. I really liked Halak, but that doesn't mean I don't like Price. I do. I'll give you the second part though. Berkshire's comments are annoying as hell a lot of the time.

LOL! Not a bit. I wish they had written about you, Chuck. You have opinions and a history as a fan I'm interested in.

Berkshire? Really? I guess HI/O is running out of Habs material and must write stories about know-it-all internet posters. Wasn't there an old Jean Beliveau jock to do a feature on? Or maybe a Let's Get Rogie Vachon into the Hall petition to sign? Sheesh.

Why would you put the only two RH defensemen on the same pair? Better to put Spacek with Subban so they both play their proper side.

Nothing in itself, of course. The OP just sounded immature.

My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

No, they didn't retire his number. But I remember he nearly made it so the Habs played the Blues in the '86 finals.
