Canadiens lose 3-2 in Detroit.
Alexei Emelin’s ill-timed high-sticking penalty in the third period didn’t help, with the Wings tying things up while he sat.
Greg Pateryn turning the puck over just outside the crease, which led to the winner, didn’t help either.
And P.K. Subban’s delay-of-game penalty, with just 1:44 left, ended all hope.
Montreal’s losing streak now reaches four games.
Dustin Tokarski, in only his second outing of the season (he replaced Mike Condon in the third period of their 6-1 loss to the Avalanche on November 14th), played well and showed he probably wouldn’t mind winning his old job back.
Toker stoned the Wings often at the Joe joint, and gave us all a nice buzz. Imagine his high if they would’ve held on.
