Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Mike Boone of Hockey Inside/Out,
The Canadiens are a mess.
A team that gave up 16 first-period goals in the first 40 games has been lit up for eight in the last three.
The last time goaltenders were pulled in three consecutive starts was in October, 2001. Their names were José Theodore, Jeff Hackett and Mathieu Garon.
Carey Price was supposed to have a night off in Pittsburgh. He could relax, watch his capable backup and get ready to face Tampa Bay at the Bell Centre on Thursday night.
Instead, Price came on in relief of Budaj. He played 40 minutes, allowed three goals and was charged with the loss.
Great confidence builder.
