Our Habs, in losing 2-0 to the Washington Capitals tonight, have been blanked three straight for the first time since 1949.
Is this a surprising turn of events? Maybe the length of time, yes. But not the lack of scoring. Carey Price has been carrying the team all year and there just comes a time when he can’t and shouldn’t have to. At some point, the proclaimed stars of the team have to chip in, and although we wait, the sleep continues.
Rip Van Winkle – eat your heart out.
From time to time over the season the team has showed heart and character. Not now. And not when they need to pick up steam heading into the playoffs. Unfortunately, Scott Gomez and Mike Cammalleri and many others who just aren’t contributing are still picking up pay cheques every few weeks with dollar figures in the hundreds of thousands, and frankly, seeing them perform in this manner for these kinds of bucks is turning my stomach.
Don’t forget, they play for us. And they’re doing a tremendously lousy job.
I take this personally.
In the words of Donald Trump – “Scott Gomez, you’re fired.”
