Finding Chris Higgins

from Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette,

Canadiens head coach Guy Carbonneau thinks Christopher Higgins suffers from an identity crisis.

“Chris has to understand what kind of player he is,” Carbonneau said after the Canadiens practised yesterday at the Bell Centre. “He’s an up-and-down skater who has to go straight to the net. We want him to be the player we drafted. He has 21 goals and, if you look at them, 15 or 16 of them were scored from five feet away from the net.”

Higgins, who is his worst critic, has struggled at times this season and Carbonneau feels it’s because the left-winger is trying to do too much.
