The Canadiens dropped their third straight Monday night, a 3-2 loss in Boston, and although they scored late in the game to make Bruins fans maybe even slightly nervous, it was a still a loss, the team goes nowhere, and Randy Cunneyworth is 0-2, which must have the Quebec culture cops rubbing their hands with glee.
I keep a paper nearby to jot things down, and this is what my barely legible scribblings read:
Petteri Nokelainen lost the faceoff deep in his own end, the puck was sent to Benoit Pouliot, who ended up beating Carey Price, which resulted in Boston’s first goal.
P.K.Subban sent out a blind pass, which resulted in the Bruins’ second goal.
Travis Moen gave up the puck to Tyler Seguin, who found Brad Marchand, and yes, this resulted in goal number 3 for Boston.
Other than that, I didn’t write much because there didn’t seem much to write.
All I can say is, I’m quite tired of dismal play, slumps, and disappointing results, and if this doesn’t change soon, I’m going to start blogging about something more uplifting, like highlights at the dentist office, or describing how the septic truck empties the holding tanks on the ferry.
Tomas Plekanec had Montreal’s first goal, with Cammy assisting. I guess it was too much to expect any more than that from these two.
Erik Cole, with 1:14 left in the third period, got our hopes up slightly but we knew our chances of beating Tim Thomas twice in a minute were slim to none.
Onward to Chicago to meet the league leaders. Oh well.
Montreal has scored 87 goals in 34 games, an average of 2.5 goals a game.
The Habs have won just three games in twelve.
