Well, the Habs blew the lead, came back to tie it, and lost it in a shootout, 5-4 to the Caps. Jeff Petry had his best game as a Hab, Carey Price had, arguably, his worst of the year, Max Pacioretty disappeared, and Devante Smith-Pelly is invisible. The Canadiens are an eclectic group of late, a group that have won 6 of 10 since the trade deadline.
Who looked good? Well, Petry may have been the Habs best skater, and Lars Eller played very motivated hockey. The Canadiens actually outplayed the Caps much of the game at even strength - the first period may have been their best of the year - but they took too many penalties, and they let Ovechkin have too much ice as the game went on.
No rest for the Habs, as they face New Jersey tomorrow, in a game they must win if they want to win their division. As of now, a first round date with the Penguins is on tap. Wouldn't that be fun to watch?

About The Upper Canadien
The Upper Canadien is your one stop shop for all things Montreal Canadiens. Since the summer of 2010, I've been providing Habs related news, notes, and most importantly, opinions. As a blogger, I don't believe it's my job to report the news, it's my privilege to comment on it. You may disagree with what I suggest. In fact, you most likely will. But that's the great part about blogging: it spurs opinion, comment and engages all involved. I've really enjoyed all the debate and commentary from readers thus far and I encourage everyone to respond with ideas on lineups, trades, logos, sweaters, mascots, whatever. The Upper Canadien is a conversation for all hockey fanatics.
I've come to Kukla's Korner with four years of campus radio and three years of sportswriting from my time at Mount Allison University on Canada's East coast. Not only do I not have any professional journalistic training, after five years in the corporate world, I've spent much of the past two years completing an MBA. Business by day, hockey by night, I'm a Canadiens fan through and through. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I do writing.
