We, as fans, have a price to pay for every prolonged winning streak. Just have to get through this without breaking anything at my house.

PSA: To everyone who feels like killing themselves after tonight's loss, follow that urge. Life isn't worth living.

Well, that sucked.

Didn't see the first period, but in the last two periods nobody was bad really, but everybody was ineffective. Garon had a good night, too.

I'd feel better if we lost like we did on Saturday, where they actually seemed into the game.

Start the parade, we're winning the cup!



Better luck next time. Normally I'd say it was fun chatting in the GDT with you guys while watching the game but... let's just say I hope the Oilers/Canucks game can produce more excitement.

As long as the second line can't score and the defense remains this bad, we'll only win against weak teams.

I don't think Mason will even need shower after that, he had what ONE tough stop and about 10 shots on dump ins? Horrible.

Kostitsyn-Gomez-Gionta could work

You normally don't get too many tough stops on the bench unless you're Pascal Leclaire

I would hope not, since he wasn't playing! LOL!

These last few games have been fascinating delves into how the human mind devises explanations and colors its observations of the process based on the end result. Gionta isn't scoring so he's playing like crap (nevermind that he racks up four shots a game and umpteen shots). They're only shooting from the perimeter (NHL.com has shot charts these days, and they disagree). They have no energy and effort when they're losing, but they're just flying when they get easy wins.

70 shots, one goal, and suddenly the story is that the team plays like crap top to bottom. Tonight they launched 65 shot attempts, and Columbus had all of 40. But hey, they got ridiculously outworked.

Then they'll get 6 on 45 shots some other pair of game and everyone will be ooh-ing and aaah-ing about how well everyone is playing. They won't have changed a lick, probably, but that's how humans work. We can't stand leaving something without an explanation. And "luck" is not one we can tolerate even though that's a big part of it. So the result colors the process.

They're still outshooting teams, getting good possession, getting chances. The 40+ shot against debacles seem to be a thing of the past or an exceedingly rare event. The Habs aren't going to end the season as the worst PP club in NHL history, Gionta won't keep being THIS snakebit for 70 more games (3 more shots tonight).

Frankly, I'm impressed: overall, this is the best the Habs have been in years.

But please, by all means, don't let me get in the way of the wailing and gnashing of teeth.

(Frankly, and this will seem weird, my one area of semi-concern is Price. He's not giving up softies but he just doesn't seem to stop as many pucks as he should. He will, hopefully, need to get used to these sub-25 shot games are tough on him.)

3 of their losses were against Quebec born goalies: Brodeur, Guigere and Garon...

Martin should make a practice where they make every player shooting at the net to improve their accuracy, because they weren't able to shoot to the net when they had good opportunities in the game. That was bad
