from Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette,
For the second consecutive game, Price wasn’t around to finish what he started, given the hook by Therrien after 40 minutes, beaten six times on 29 shots. It marked the first time in the netminder’s 305-game NHL career that he’s been relieved in straight games.
Forty-two matches into this lockout-shortened season, Montreal — and the club’s fan base far and wide — is melting down. An overreaction, yes, but some fissures have opened in this team.
Imagine if the Canadiens were currently parked in, say, eighth or ninth place, fighting for their playoff lives, rather than safely berthed in the post-season. We’d be talking revolt in the streets.
Monday’s 7-3 loss to the visiting Philadelphia Flyers was a mess whether you wanted to use a shovel or a spatula to scrape it up.
