I always knew H10H was really still Horton10Horton...
Anyways, not much that I didn't already know, but thanks anyway, I'm sure it'll be helpful for more of the casual fans
Don't make me kill you.
It could be for the casual fans. It could also be for the posters who don't have time to spent online looking for Habs info. They check this thread and are linked to some Habs related information right away.
Price stopped 29 shots for Montreal and Brian Gionta scored with less than 2 minutes to go but the Canadiens went 0 for 4 on the power play and have scored just eight goals during their slide, with five of them coming in a shootout loss to Colorado on Saturday.
"It seems like if one starts to get going, the other things not going," Price said. "We just need to throw it all together, and once we do that I think we'll get on a roll. But until then we've just got to bear down on our details. We gotta all get on the same page and hopefully things will work out."
'We’re not doing things the right way,' Montreal Canadiens' Hal Gill says
Gill and the Canadiens suffered their fourth consecutive loss while Asham scored a goal as part of the Penguins 3-1 win over the Canadiens Thursday at the Consol Energy Centre.
“We’re not doing things the right way and a team like that that plays really well as a team made us pay the price,” Gill said. “It’s frustrating. We have to find a way to get the little things done. There’s a lot of second-guessing on this team. We’re not playing with certainty and we’re losing a lot of battles as the result of it.”
Montreal Canadiens lack passion in loss to Pittsburgh
On Thursday night, the Canadiens seemed to give up after the Pittsburgh Penguins' James Neal scored the game's first goal at 8:55 of the first period. The Penguins routed the Canadiens' 3-1 as Marc-Andre Fleury made 27 saves and was solid in net for Pittsburgh. Joe Vitale and Arron Asham potted the Penguins' other two goals. Habs' dimunitive winger Brian Gionta had the lone Canadiens' marker at 18:24 of the final period.
The Canadiens dropped a 3-1 decision to the Pittsburgh Penguins at the Consol Energy Centre Thursday night. It was the fourth straight loss for the Canadiens, who dropped to 1-4-1. Sorel native Marc-André Fleury stopped 27 shots, losing his shutout when Brian Gionta scored with 1: 36 left.
Penguins get the bounces: Deflections played a role in the first two Pittsburgh goals. James Neal scored at 8: 55 of the first period when his shot grazed off Habs defenceman Josh Gorges, hit a post and then caromed off the back of Carey Price's leg. Joe Vitale scored at 2: 38 of the second period when he deflected Deryk Engelland's harmless looking shot from the point.
"He (Gill) said the Canadiens’ problem had nothing to do with a lack of effort."
True or False................
I didn't see the game but based on fan reaction I'd say the above is a false statement.
You know, as an athlete, I always had a mind said "Play like your behind by one" that way, if I was up by twenty, I didn't take it too lightly and get too soft, but if I was down by twenty, I convinced myself I was still in it, I could still come back.
I feel as if the Canadiens, right now, don't have that mind set. Its like, once they're down by one, thats it, they give up entirely.
From an outsiders, view, thats just how it seems. Its almost like nobody is confident. PK Subban is one of the most confident players in the league, sometimes too much, and it seems that right now, rather than do his usual stickhandling, sideshow, impressive, undress the other team end to end dramatic puck handling shows, he bats the puck away as soon as it hits the tape. Its like he wants nothing to do it.
Also, it seems main players on teams, be it a goalie for hockey, a pitcher for baseball, a QB for football...It seems they always struggle at milestone times. Carey is dying for that 100th win and I think now he's over thinking it. Not that I blame Carey at all, but you know its on his mind.
Montreal just needs to start winning in some categories even if it isn't the whole game. Its like theyre being beat everywhere. They were beat in hits, shots, and faceoffs last night.
Something needs to be changed. I have a feeling if things don't turn around between the Toronto game and the home and home with Boston, be it transactions between the AHL and NHL, free agent signings, trades, or a coaching change, something will be different by the end of the month.
Montreal is a talented club and everyone knows it. The injuries over the last few seasons have not helped that.
Some chemistry needs to be formed. Some heart needs to be put in. If you put in your heart, the rest will follow.
