Another Bad Day For The Montreal Canadiens

from Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette,

If there was any doubt the Canadiens are the worst team in the NHL, it was erased Monday when the Arizona Coyotes, the second-worst in the NHL, defeated the Canadiens 5-2 in a Martin Luther King Day matinée at Gila River Arena.

The Coyotes scored the first two goals of the game and the Canadiens never came closer than a single goal as their winless streak extended to six games (0-4-2). The loss dropped Montreal’s record to 7-25-5 with a 2-15-4 record on the road. They are last in the Atlantic Division and last overall.

Arizona is only a shade better with a 9-24-4 record, last in the Pacific DivisIon....

hortly before the puck drop, TSN reported that Price met with his doctors and he’s back to square one in his recovery from knee surgery.

Price had surgery to repair a torn meniscus during the off-season. It’s a relatively minor procedure and there were hopes that he would be ready for the start of training camp. He was not only not ready but his rehab was set back when he entered the NHL players assistance program prior to the start of the season. He spent 30 days in the program to deal with substance use.

He has made an occasional appearances on the ice over the past two months but he has been spotted in full goalie gear only twice.
