There wouldn’t be a big win in Nashville to ease the pain, and the dreadful slide continues.
Habs fall 5-1 to the Nashville Predators and have now lost four straight, and eight of their last nine. Or nine of their last eleven if you want to stretch it to the max. What a friggin’ December.
They can’t score either. And their power play is in a coma.
Tabarnak it’s a sad state of affairs.
On a positive note, Nashville’s fifth goal was into the empty net.
No matter how you look at at it, this sinking into the depths of hell sucks plenty. They were going so good, not that long ago. Nine straight wins, baby. Remember that? The toast of the hockey world. Wow!
Then it just kinda went away, like your allowance at the roulette table.
At one point last season (late November, early December), the Habs won just once in seven games, but then rebounded to win nine of their next ten.
However, Carey Price was in nets when they rebounded. So it’s entirely possible this year’s rebound is still a ways off.
As far as goaltending goes, it’s been Condon replacing Toker, Toker replacing Condon, Condon replacing Toker. Won’t somebody grab the job and hold on for goodness sakes?
I’m not into it and I apologize. But if they’re not going to play hard and with heart, why should I type when I could be making a grilled cheese and picking my toenails?
Tuesday’s another day, with the boys in Minnesota.
Canadiens outshot the Preds 36-19, but they’ve outshot the opposition often during this wretched time. So answers lay elsewhere.
