The Canadiens strong road play was bound to end at some point. And it did, badly, Saturday night against the Rangers.
Perhaps their worst game of the year.
One of the Canadiens better games of the year was the last time they played in Long Island. They controlled the game early and often en route to a 4-1 win.
The Habs hope to do the same tonight an get back on track with another win in Long Island.
Patrice Brisebois who sucked up the most time on those non-converting 5-3 powerplays on Saturday, will be out of the lineup with a ‘sore ankle’. Hopefully for Candiens fans Brisebois will be out of the line up for good, instead of another return to the team to provide nothing except the theft of ice time from younger and/or better players.
