Habs Pay Price for Switching Goalies

The Flyers 4-2 win tonight gave them a commanding 3-1 lead in their series with Montreal.

Philadelphia’s offence was sharp, but Martin Biron’s stellar play was a dagger to the heart of Habs’ playoff hopes.

On the night Canadiens’ coach Guy Carbonneau was nominated for the Jack Adams(Coach of the Year) Trophy many questioned his decision to replace goalie Carey Price with Jaroslav Halak.

In his post game comments, Carbonneau came right out with it: he didn't think Carey Price had the consistency needed to win and put Halak between the pipes.

R.J. Umberger added to his impressive playoff performance with two goals.

Daniel Briere got the game winner for Philadelphia.
