Total fluke of a series. Didn’t they finish 24th in the league? That’s pretty atrocious.

Good job Price.
Where is everyone else? You really think this is a good team???
Ask the Penguins.

I guess Price might be motivated by the factor of "now or never", he's around the same age as Sidney Crosby and the window of opportunity for the Stanley cup begin to close and he might pull a Ken Dryden or Patrick Roy.

On the other hand for the Pens, it might be a silver lining. They might have a bigger chance to draft Alexis Lafrenière. https://triblive.com/sports/a-quick-...op-draft-pick/

The Penguins had preexisting issues they did not resolve in time for the qualifying round. Their offseason will involve many changes.

The COVID-19-shortened season and altered postseason is not enough to judge the Canadiens Being twelfth in the Eastern Conference before the season changed does not look good.

Habs won one for the Gipper tonight, pasting the Flyers 5-0. Hope Claude sleeps easy.

And now they’re back to their scoring woes. 0 goals in 130 minutes. Price is playing lights out and his team continues to fail him.
8 games played, and only 3 players have more than 3 points, or a .5ppg: Weber at 5, and Byron and KK at 4.
Pathetic.

They played their hearts out tonight.

They've already overachieved. Nobody expected them to get past the Penguins, let alone push the Flyers to 6 - at least.

The young guys are showing up.
That’s a good sign for the future.
If management keeps them.

Well, Suzuki and KK showed up during this run. Price, as usual, was phenomenal. The core has been trash though... Gally, Tatar, Drouin... Yikes. Coach doesn’t know how to use Domi either. Domi is a scorer, and a heck of a forward playmaker, but is being wasted away as a grinder.
Hopefully they fix things up this next season. Ship out Drouin and get some fire power.

Yeah... Onto the next...

Price is getting older. Sad to see. Still at the top of his game, but management needs to build a team around him, and fast.
