For those of you who went to bed early and missed the Habs-Ducks game in Anaheim…..I hope you had a lovely sleep. You missed so much.
You missed the Habs lose 4-1 to one of the worst teams in the NHL. You missed Montreal fall flat once again on the power play, going a feeble 0 for 7. You missed Montreal take six penalties, several of which were due to laziness, in particular PK Subban’s two tripping penalties because he wasn’t moving his feet and didn’t want to give any extra effort. You missed Montreal give up two goals on these six Ducks chances.
You missed many Habs fans in the stands looking seriously bored. You missed a bunch of Ducks fans looking just as bored.
Aren’t you sorry you missed all that?
I only stayed up to watch this mess so I could write some sort of post about it. Damn.
For me, this is the lowest point in the season, even lower than mid-October when the team dropped six straight. It’s their third straight loss now, this last one against a basement dwellar, the Anaheim Ducks, but it’s so much more than that. There was a reason the game was boring. The Canadiens played once again with absolutely no fire or passion, no fight or drive. No sharpness or edge.
All in all, the whole thing is disgraceful and unacceptable. The players should be ashamed of themselves and Pierre Gauthier needs to quit taking valium and spring into action.
How many times do Habs fan have to shout loud and clear? Change the friggin coach. Bring some life to this lifeless bunch. it’s pitiful what we’re seeing. Our patience has worn thinner than thin. Gauthier, do the right thing and right this listing ship.
Peter Budaj was in goal tonight and he played fine, I suppose. He didn’t have much to work with.
Shots on goal – Ducks 27 , Habs 20.
Andrei Kostitsyn converted a nice Tomas Plekanec pass to open the scoring and for a few minutes, we thought maybe, just maybe……Then it all came crashing down.
PK Subban is a shell of himself right now. He was reasonably lousy on this night, but then again, most of the team sucked the big one.
Next game – 400 miles north to San Jose, then 400 miles south again to play the Kings which are just 30 miles from where the Canadiens played tonight. Do you find that slightly silly?
