Canadiens Dissapoint Again

  • The Canadiens blew another lead and dropped another game 3-1 to the Boston Bruins.

    The game rightfully should have been 4 or even 5-1 so it wasn’t even as close as it seemed. The Habs were out of it after 1 period and as usual were brutally out shot. How they expect to win with constantly shooting 50% less then the opposition is beyond me.

    Brad Boyes scored a goal that 100% should have counted but for some reason was not reviewed and not counted. Another questionable goal was denied due to a high stick but was very borderline and could have went either way. The Canadiens weren’t even in the game. As usual.

    Sheldon Souray got absolutely undressed by Patrice Bergeron which directly lead to a Boston goal. At this point of the season he’s been undressed more times than Patrick Roy’s wife by Mathieu Schneider.

    I’m a Sheldon Souray fan but come on. There could be a highlight reel of just players walking around him. It’s pretty clear that the Canadiens without Andrei Markov in the lineup and playing 25-30 minutes a game are hopeless. Don’t count on any wins until he returns which is still undetermined at this point.

    Huet stopped a penalty shot early in the game and he played solid like he usually does. He deserves to start again. With back to back games this weekend it’s doubtful he’ll get both starts. The game with Boston is of greater importance and they should stick with him.

    If the Canadiens can make it to the Olympic break still in contention they may have a chance but that chance is dwindling with each pathetic effort put forth.
