No time for moping and crying about losing to an opponent the Habs have no business losing to – especially in the manner in which they lost. The Habs are back in action tonight and will face the New Jersey Devils who will be without their secret-Habs-killing weapon Martin Brodeur.
Montreal has had a pattern emerging lately – of a Jekyll and Hyde routine within the same game. They’ll jump out to a first period lead, only to be badly outplayed in the final periods. When you have a team down 3-1 with 10 minutes to play – you don’t give up 3 goals (2 of which on odd man rushes created from turnovers. At least not if you want to be considered a contender.
Tonight the Habs have a chance to show they have a short memory. They’ll need to because on Saturday the Sharks come to town – and they will not be an easy win.
Go Habs Go!!
