We saw just two days ago, against the Jets, how the Canadiens can get it done, how they can play when they perk up and show some jam. We saw intensity and emotion and cohesion, and that, along with Carey Price on top of his game, we realize that Montreal can be a fine team.
But what’s in store tonight against the Penguins? Will it be more of the good stuff, or will it be, as we’ve seen before, more of the lacklustre, non-effort as shown recently in dismal losses to Washington, New Jersey and Buffalo.
Scott Gomez says he and his teammates study the standings on the wall of their dressing room daily, and of course don’t like what they see. So why is it that they don’t always play like they’re in desperation mode?
C’mon Habs. Give us more of what we saw against Winnipeg. This up and down ride is driving us crazy.
