The other day I wrote that blowouts are niice!!
Sure, when the Habs are on the right side of the equation.
Blow outs against Montreal are not niice!!! Ugly! As in 7-0 ugly.
The Habs can take solace in at least winning the season series against the Bruins but no doubt such a brow beating like they received last night doesn't sit very well. Hopefully they can use this as motivation moving forward.
Not to take anything away from the Bruins. They were the better team and beat us -- fair and square -- in basically every facet of the game. But you know the Habs could be much better. After all, you're not supposed to give up a short-handed goal when you have a 2 man powerplay!!!
Habs were down 61 seconds in and the Bruins never looked back. Can't really blame Price. The Habs were in the penalty box wayyyy too many times over the first 40 minutes of play.
Guess the injuries are starting to finally catch up to this team, which looked out of gas last night.
Things don't get any easier as they play the Capitals on Saturday in Montreal. Their cushion on 6th place is now down to 2 points ahead of the New York Rangers. So we'll see if we face the Bruins or not, who pretty much have the top spot in the Northeast Division wrapped up.
Being shutout 2 games in a row, not good. But the Habs have shown a lot of character in bouncing back this season, so hopefully this continues. 7 games left in the regular season, let's hope the team wins at least 4 of these.
