Canadiens fall 4-1 to the New Jersey Devils and it’s simply a reminder that no team wins every game.
This one would have been nice, though. They could’ve caught the Bruins.
The Habs played fine after they shook the mysterious cobwebs from their legs after the first period. They had their chances, and they were given the added bonus of playing two-thirds of the afternoon against Johan Hedberg in nets instead of Martin Brodeur, who left with some sort of pull or whatever.
They just couldn’t solve the blanket the Devils throw over teams once New Jersey gets the lead, as happened today when the visitors went up 3-0. Remind me never to fork out several hundred dollars to see this team play. Jacques Lemaire should be arrested for putting more people to sleep than Dr. Kevorkian.
Disappointing? Yes. The end of the world? No. Although it would be nice if our bleu, blance et rouge didn’t come out so flat and have to play catch-up all game.
In Boston on Wednesday for a beauty. On such a night, we need 60 minutes, not 40, from the boys.
James Wisniewski remained out with the flu. If it doesn’t start getting better James, smoke a reefer.
Shots on goal – 30-26 Devils.
PK Subban banked one off Ilya Kovalchuk for the Habs lone goal.
A light went on over my head today as I watched Charles Linton-Prevost sing the national anthems. Without really giving up on the stickboy/flag-carrying dream, maybe I should concentrate on becoming the anthem singer!
