I still have faith they can get things together and pull of the series but it all comes down to tonight. Also I think they need to do more then just win, they need to go out there and blow them out and crush Price's fragile mind for the rest of the series.
I'm not sure Price can be shaken, though I agree that the Bruins aren't creating the traffic in front of him to make him work harder. Price has been solid this season, but he hasn't been asked to do much these last 2 games. Basic fundamentals are getting the job done.
The Habs are playing great on both ends of the ice, but I think the Bruins can slow them down by getting more hits in and creating second chance situations in front of the net. As you said, they are simply shooting the puck in on Price when he's ready and then he's covering up. They're also letting them dictate the pace of the game. They keep that style of play going and they'll be done in 4 or 5 games for sure.
