Canadiens Lose 5-0 At Home To The Capitals, Now What?

from Mike Boone of Hockey Inside/Out,

In his postgame press conference, Michel Therrien indicated his team would not spend much time studying video of their miserable performance.

“That’s a DVD you throw in the garbage,” the coach said. Every team plays bad games, Therrien added.

“What’s important is how you react to adversity.”

Fans reacted by either deserting the Bell Centre or showering the home team with boos, catcalls and sarcastic applause for shots on goal – of which the Canadiens managed NINE through 40 minutes and 21 on the game.

Do the math: The swells in Platinum seats paid $20 for each shot they saw. It was cheaper in the Greys: $4 a shot … and $13 a beer, but I digress.

What a disgraceful performance by the home team.

... catcalls and sarcastic applause for shots on goal – of which the Canadiens managed NINE through 40 minutes and 21 on the game.

It was even worse than it appeared. Around the halfway point of the game the shots were 25-3… Washington had more goals than the Canadiens had shots.

I don’t think firing Therrien is enough, Burgevin should be sent packing as well…

If we were still in the Western conf. I would be a little upset about this.

I wonder what Sal has to say now because what happened after his rant, the Habs made it all the way to the Conference Finals, IIRC.
