Horrible way to start the road trip.

Just the fact that Darche is out there at that critical moment says everything about the Habs. I love Darche. He works hard and is a good 3rd to 4th liner. He gives us size on the wings and always drives to the net.
But, when he's your best option in front late in the game...
AK no where in sight of course, or Pouliot, or Patches.
They aren't there as they don't go to the net and take the abuse like Darche is willing to do to stay in the line up.
Patches will get the nod eventually, but as a perimeter player right now he doesn't fit in when you have Gomez, Gionta, Plekanec and Cammalleri all on the outside as well.
