We all knew the Canadiens would eventually hit a slump, and they have.
The Habs have dropped 4 out of 5 and looked pretty awful at times over that stretch.
Will it get worse before it gets better?
Flashback to last year, the Canadiens had a strong start followed by a late December collapse. Lost all confidence and played mediocre hockey until the very last game. A loss that left them out of the playoffs.
All things considered, the Coach and staff and players should all be more experienced this year. Now is the time to step it up and do something to not repeat the past.
Are the Canadiens as a whole ever going to improve? Or fall back to their normal rummaging for points at the end of the season ways?
Confidence is low, the #1 goalie is injured and it won’t get easier as the Canadiens face the league leading Red Wings tonight.
