pull off a miracle and shut out


The Montreal Canadiens and star goaltender Carey Price shut out the red hot Florida Panthers Sunday afternoon. The win means the Canadiens have not lost in regulation in their past 4 (3-0-1) and have a decent 4-3-3 record in their past 10.

"We realized the Panthers play a very good defensive game and decided to give them a taste of their own medicine" said Habs coach Michel Therrien. Therrien ran a very passive forecheck all game long and it paid off with zero pucks finding the twine behind Carey Price.

Panthers goalie Jacob Markstrom played like the league leader he is, until Vinny Lecavalier managed to score his 12th goal of the season with a wrister glove side. Erik Cole added an empty netter (his team leading 36th point) to ice the game for the Habs, who now sit in 12th, but just 5 points out of 8th in the East.
