As the Montreal Canadiens losing streak reached six games, coach Jacques Martin, talked about accentuating the positive and eliminating the negative.
And in a subdued room, Josh Gorges said “our fans deserve better.” DAMN RIGHT THEY DESERVE BETTER
The Canadiens had 41 shots on goal.
Peter Budaj was solid in his first start of the regular season.
They finally scored on the power play. None of that matters in the end on this night as they only scored one goal.
Tthe losing streak hit six, Max Pacioretty got hurt and the drumbeats of discontent grow ever louder in Montreal.
Dis-hearting fact: For the first time in 102 years, the Montreal Canadiens have lost their first five home games of the season.
“So let me get this straight: The Canadiens’ only goal comes from a strategy suggested by a young reporter whom Martin rudely dismissed. Yeah, he’s on top of his game alright. The guy is a joke and the only reason he looked good last season was because of Carey Price’s stellar play and the season before that was the incredible run of Halak. This was bound to happen sooner or later.
I would replace the General Manager and the coach. Go after TSN’s PIerre McGuire as he knows the game better then anyone. How about PAtrick Roy, we need some people with passion for hockey and the will to win. I for one am tired of excuses, this franchise is in dis-array and Habs fans can’t even wear their sweaters with pride anymore. SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE NOW. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
Max Pacioretty is injured.
And the fans booed P.K.
Still have not won on home ice…
And I forgot to mention, the next three games are against Philadelphia and then a home and home with the defending Stanley Cup Champs, Boston Bruins. Are you worried, This is without a doubt the biggest hole I have ever experienced as a Habs fan.
EMBARRASSING and UP-SETTING, I love hockey season and I love Montreal and the Canadiens, but I have never been so upset and frustrated with hockey.
