Kukla's Korner Hockey

After a day where a lot was said, the Habs speak up about their star sniper speaking out.
Following the Habs’ Wednesday morning practice in Brossard, Michael Cammalleri expressed his frustration to a few members of the Montreal media regarding the team’s performance in 2011-12. By the time Wednesday evening rolled around, Cammalleri’s words had become the focus of a city equally frustrated by a hockey season plagued with injuries, coaching controversies and a lack of production. The Canadiens took the opportunity Thursday in Boston to clear the air and set the record straight.
“Yesterday was a little bit crazy,” began Cammalleri, addressing the throng of media surrounding his stall in the visitor’s dressing room in Boston. “I’m obviously not happy. It’s an emotional game and we’re sitting in 12th spot. It’s not fun to lose, you always want to win and you always want to do more.
“I made some comments after my interview yesterday,” continued Cammalleri, who for his part has registered an uncharacteristically low total of nine goals after 37 games this season. “I thought they were pretty PC comments regarding the competitive advantage a winning team has in their mentality, and the lack thereof of a losing team. I didn’t think it was ground-breaking news.”
