I’m warning you right now, don’t do this to us. We’ve already rode the roller-coaster enough this year, so stop it.
It was only nanoseconds ago when we were on a big, beautiful winning streak, moving up in the standings, making serious noises at exactly the right time. Then poof. Lose to Toronto. Lose to the Senators. Now it’s a great team in Buffalo to tackle next. Hell, this could go from great to gross before we can say Jack Todd.
The Canadiens on this night just weren’t converting. The puck bounced and rolled, passes were intercepted, shots blocked or deflected, and rarely was there flow and execution that has been worked on so often in practices. I wouldn’t say they played badly, they’ve certainly performed worse in this 2009-10 season, but things were missing throughout. Ottawa didn’t find themselves in serious trouble often, and they should have.
Ottawa 2, Habs 0.
Don’t do this to us. We don’t need it. You’re killing us with your outrageous hot and cold play. We’re now back in 7th spot, just three ahead of the Bruins. And although this goes against my belief in the power of positive thinking, if they don’t get the power play and scoring in general going in Buffalo and after that against Florida, we’re about to experience a big mother of a nightmare.
In Buffalo Wednesday, at home Thursday for Florida.
Carey Price should play in Buffalo and there again, we have no idea what to expect.
Looks like Travis Moen’s face got a slice from a skate. It looked bad and hopefully and good old prairie boy will be okay.
