The Canadiens came within a whisker of handling the Arizona Coyotes in the desert. Just five more goals and the win was theirs.
It was that close. The team just isn’t getting the breaks.
A tight one. Tense like crazy. But in the end, the boys fell short.
If only they could’ve scored those five. But they didn’t and the Coyotes held on by the skin of their teeth to edge our Montrealers 6-2.
6-2. WTF is that?
So, after three wins that had Habs fans feeling sort of better, the team has now lost their last two and given up 12 goals in the process.
I guess the slump is back. Oh, it never went away, you say?
Now, onward to Denver on Wednesday for another exciting loss.
On the bright side, only six more losses this month and they’ll equal December and January for winning three games in each month. I don’t know about you but this possibility excites the heck out of me.
Such a dismal year for Habs fans young and old, from all across our great nation and beyond, down in the dumps as the team begins to think golf thoughts.
Hardened Habs fans from Dildo, Nfld, to Lower Shag Harbour, NS.
Diehards in Beersville, NB to Dixsville, PQ and Newbliss, Ont.
Fans in the west, from Jackmore, Man. and Climax, Sask., to the gang out at Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump in Alberta.
And of course those poor bastards in Powell River, BC.
All resigned to the fact that the Canadiens season will draw to a close in just a couple more dozen games.
The Coyotes outshot the Canadiens 28-19.
Dale Weise and Brendan Gallagher were the Habs marksmen.
It’s an 8:00 pm ET start in Denver.
