The Canadiens lost two consecutive games for the first time this season.
The Habs managed a 1 goal lead early and for most of the game looked as though they’d hang on to the win.
David Abeischer played very well. You have to feel bad for him, he plays a strong game, is 5 minutes away from a shutout win and then the Canadiens crumble and it’s a 2-1 OT loss. Not even a chance in the shoot out.
Brodeur was weak on the Habs first goal but typical Brodeur showed up for all the other Canadiens scoring threats and didn’t allow them a more commanding lead.
The real question now is how the Habs will battle back from their first losing ‘streak’. If you can call two games a streak.
The Habs have not been in this position yet and it’ll be interesting to watch how they respond.
Another game tonight against the surprisingly good and well coached Islanders. To be followed by another evening with the Sabres. It won’t be easy.
