The Slumping Canadiens

Montreal lost 4-1 last night to the Bruins...

from Mike Boone of Hockey Inside/Out,

You can’t put a positive spin on the Canadiens’ recent results.

They haven’t won a game in regulation time since before the Olympics.

Their only win on the recent road trip was against Anaheim – which, their lofty point total notwithstanding, lost at home to the Leafs and got smoked in Calgary.

It has been obvious for a couple weeks now that the Canadiens can’t win without Carey Price. And the condition of Team Canada’s gold-medal goaltender is a mystery....

Informed speculation – if that isn’t an oxymoron – has Price battling a groin injury. The healing process cannot be rushed, and a premature return to action might jeopardize the future of the Canadiens’ most valuable player.

The Canadiens are still six points clear of  ninth-place Detroit. but the Red Wings have two games in hand.

On arrĂȘte de paniquer!!!!!

Wow…seriously the Canadians will make the playoffs…and as much as I would like to see them fall in order to help us out….if you look at the rest of their schedule and ours…it pretty much tells you it’s impossible for us to catch them.Hell, Ottawa would have more chance of catching them then us (and still)

So issues from the Olympics have endangered the Habs and Bolts.  On behalf of paying fans and sponsors and everyone that has invested countless hours following these teams, thanks so much!
