Consistent with Nick Suzuki, the Canadiens talk about sustaining self-discipline prior to every recreation. However, sadly, the message isn’t getting by means of. The group continues to take too many pointless penalties.
After which once more, after ending an 0-for-23 stretch in direction of Anaheim, the Montreal power-play continues to sputter.
Tampa Bay constructed a 4-0 lead after 40 minutes along with two targets with the individual profit. Within the meantime, the Canadiens pushed their streak to five straight video video games with out scoring a major or second interval function.
And for the first time this season, the Habs have misplaced three in a row. That drops Montreal to last place throughout the Atlantic division. After some early season success, the Habs have begun to slide throughout the standings. They’re now twenty fourth throughout the NHL.
Let’s end with a stick faucet for Kirby Dach. In a recreation the place the Canadiens have been buried by the Lightning, he obtained the matchup in direction of his counterpart and helped drive the play for his line. For the great of the Canadiens future, Dach desires to remain at centre for an outstanding, prolonged stretch of time.
Put up-game the Canadiens launched that David Savard has been positioned on injury reserve, retroactive to December 4th.
The Canadiens now ought to endure seven straight road video video games beginning on Monday in direction of the Arizona Coyotes.
