A Brief Habs-Sens Recap

The Canadiens and Senators clashed three times before tonight, and how did things go?

On Nov. 7th in Ottawa, Montreal dropped a 4-1 decision , their fourth straight loss in November, because for some reason they had stopped scoring  – just seven goals scored in four games.

Sound familiar? Currently they’ve scored seven goals in their last five games.

On January 4th at the Bell, two goals from Daniel Briere and one from Brian Gionta wasn’t enough because with the the game tied and just 19 seconds remaining in the third period, P.K. Subban took a hooking penalty and Ottawa ended it on the power play in overtime.

On January 16th in Ottawa, the Canadiens finally solved the Sens, although it took overtime to do it. And the fact was, the boys were terrible on this night. They had jumped into a 3-0 lead in the first but by the time this period would draw to a close, Ottawa had replied twice and it was a 3-2 game.

For the rest of the night, it was all Ottawa and only Carey Price standing on his head kept his team in it. Finally in overtime, P.K. scored the winner and celebrated like crazy, making the talking heads at CBC and Habs-haters everywhere aghast at PK’s enthusiastic celebration.

I thought it was a justified celebration on PK’s part. After what had happened twelve days before when he was in the box and the Sens won it, and the way they had played so well in the first period of this game and then completely fell apart, it was only right that P.K. was joyful.

Cherry, Stock, Habs haters and Sens fans etc. didn’t get it, naturally.

Tonight is the fourth meeting between these two and it’s time for the Canadiens to start scoring. And it’s time to show some superiority over a team nine points behind them in the standings.

  1. If the Habs lose this game, especially if it’s in regulation and the scoring woes continue, then it would be fair to activate the alarm bells…………..

  2. TSN’s John Lu – @JohnLuTSNMtl – was at the Habs’ practice this morning and tweeted the following…

    #Habs lines vs #Sens:
    Pacioretty – Desharnais – Vanek
    Brière – Plekanec – Gionta
    Galchenyuk – Eller – Gallagher
    Moen – Prust – Weise

    —————————–

    #Habs d-pairs vs #Sens:
    Markov – Emelin
    Bouillon – Subban
    Murray – Tinordi

    #Habs Price has taken part in all drills this morning. Fired a puck in disgust after giving up a goal — a sure sign he’s back to normal.

    And finally…

    #Habs @PKSubban1 in dressing room, singing to media with a huge smile on his face, “I know something you don’t know.” Price? New contract?

  3. Who talked Thornbush into reuniting the 2 Gallys w/ Eller? Could be a fun nite. Hope the puck goes in Sens net AT LEAST ONCE more then Gallagher goes in.

  4. PK’s little secret is out now.

    Coach Therrien announced Price will play tonight!!!

    I love the lineups. There’s no excuse now. Habs have to pick up four points this weekend.
