from Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette,

... there will be 21,273 at the Bell Centre Tuesday, and a whole lot more tuned in, who will care a great deal about the club beating the Carolina Hurricanes to end a four-game losing streak, thus talking an overwrought fan base in off the ledge.

“This isn’t rock bottom. Things could be a lot worse right now, we still have a lot of our season to salvage,” Pacioretty added. “(Monday) was a great start. We had a good uptempo practice and we’re hoping to build off of that.

“We were flying out there today. The coaches are doing a great job of keeping us positive and trying to keep us confident. I felt good in practice today and I think a lot of the other guys did, too.”

Anyone looking for a crack in team unity, or suggesting that head coach Michel Therrien has “lost the room,” would have to look elsewhere.

“Obviously, we’re not playing the right way, but it’s not like guys are trying to sabotage the Montreal Canadiens. We want to win,” Pacioretty said.
