It's not just Price. Niemi is struggling too. Both have some of the worst goalie stats in the league. A lot of this falls on poor defensive play by the team.

Price looked like his old self tonight in Calgary, stealing a 3-2 win with 43 saves.

I watched the game last night against Washington. The final score does not reflect how Price played at all. He was absolutely incredible. The game as a whole was one of the most exciting I've seen in a while.

I went to bed when the habs had a 2 goal lead thinking they will easily win the game,woke up to find they lost the game from an ot goal from Lars Eller. How did Price play? he let in 5 goals..

He actually played extremely well, and made some highlight-reel saves.
The Eller goal was a bit weak, but truthfully, had any other goalie been in net, the Habs would have probably let 10 goals in. Habs defense is atrocious, and some turnovers were beyond cringeworthy.

It's unfortunate because for once, the offense is doing well with the Domi/Drouin duo.

I guess having Weber back after a 6 month layoff did little to turn the ship around.

Oh ye of little faith.

Weber's return has, and will continue to help. He's steadied the defence and bolstered the power play. The rest of the team, although still the smallest in the league, plays a little bigger when he's in uniform. He'll help reduce the number of shots Price has to face and clear some of the traffic in front of the net. He's not exactly a superstar but he's still a very effective defenceman who exerts a steadying presence on the rest of the team.

As I believe I said at the beginning of the season, I'll be happy if the Habs can contend for a playoff spot most of the season. So far, they're doing just that. And playing some entertaining hockey along the way.

I'll give you the last bit. But they aren't playing well at all. Very sloppy and clumsy plays resulting in horrendous giveaways for the second coming of Christ to pull off miracle saves to keep them in.

Drouin is still lazy on the backcheck, although he is fun to watch on the offense with Domi.

And their defense was sure shining last night. 0-4 on the PK? What a performance!
