What are you even talking about? Montreal did not score 3 goals number one. Were you watching the game? If you can't even know that the score was 4-2 for Ottawa how is anyone going to take your assessment of the teams performance seriously.
You can fault a team for losing a game. They could have had 60 shots and not won and that is still their fault. Anderson saw 90% of the shots that were faced. There's barely any traffic. When there was traffic, the shot was blocked (notice the shots from the point on the 5 on 3).
Gryba was kicked out of the game, so what are the 'tough' guys from Montreal to do. Fight Chris Neil? Probably lose said fight because Prust can't really take him on?
Give more momentum to a team that's beating you up?
How about play hockey score goals and win the game for your teammate who's in the hospital. Crash the net, create traffic score the dirty goals like Latendresse scored to put the game away.
It sucks that Montreal isn't the toughest team for sure, but they have a skill set and that's speed. Drive to the net with that speed and get lucky. Anderson gave up a few nice rebounds but Montreal wasn't getting to them. THe compete level in front needs to be better, there needs to be less turnovers in our own end, and Price needs to play extremely well.
A better message to send to Ottawa in the next game then seeking revenge, is to dominate them on the scoreboard and show them that despite whatever may be thrown at us we're going to win. Headhunting will more than likely cause us to be shorthanded and slow our momentum as we control the play (our strong point).
