You can’t win them all.
The Canadiens played a pretty solid game but still couldn’t manage to beat the Devils and Martin Brodeur. Same old story.
That makes it the fifth consecutive loss to NJ. Brodeur always shines when returning to Montreal and last night was no different. However, after Montreal’s last two games it looked like they were maybe ready to break that streak.
Cristobal Huet seems to have found his confidence again after putting in another great performance.
The most concerning thing about this game is both Alex Kovalev and Christopher Higgins left periodically with injuries. Both seemed to be somewhere around the ankle or lower leg. It’s not yet known how serious they may be.
As well as the Canadiens are playing, remove those guys from the lineup and you can see how frail the team really is.
