Huet's Price Going Up? Flyers Down Habs 6 - 4 To Take Series

Well I was watching the Flyers-Canadeans Game 5 and the Flyers had just pulled ahead of the Habs 4-3 at the end of the 2nd period. Carey Price had just let two Flyers goals get past him that he'd probably like to have back and I can't help but wonder what this all is doing to the likely "price" it'll take for the Capitals to resign Christobel Huet. Throughout tonight's game Cary Price didn't get a lot of help in front but his glove side looked very vulnerable throughout the entire Flyers series. The other thing going against Price is that at the other end of the ice Martin Biron continued to play excellently throughout the series.

The Canadeans came out in the third period and tied the game before the Flyers took the lead again at 16:56 on a textbook tip-in by Scottie Upshall on a Jeff Carter shot from the point through a crowded slot. Mike Knuble "sealed the deal" with an empty net goal at 19:10. Overall tonight Carey Price stopped 31 shots. However the bigger story was that the Flyers scored 20 goals in 5 games on the Canadeans' 20 year old rookie goalie. The Flyers now await the outcome of the Penguins - Rangers series to see who they play for the Eastern Conference Championship. The Penguins currently lead that series 3 - 1 and could end the series tomorrow when they meet for game 5 in Pittsburgh. One thing is for sure, regardless of who the Flyers end up playing - Pittsburgh or the Rangers - it will be a physical series.

What do you think will Montreal try to resign Christobel Huet after Price's issues in the Flyers series?
