OK wtf is up with this decision in the second period. You are dominating the game but every single time you put your 4th line you end up in your own end giving up scoring chances. You get scored so it's 2-1 and you decide to go with your 4th line? THAT cost us the game right here.
Please fire Therrien and get in a coach who has no link to this team or any of it's players so he can actually assess the talent and put out proper lines and players. Maybe they'd actually have a chance to win if they dont' have to endure Therrien's boy toys getting ice time when they should be 1000 miles from the club.
Yet, the 4th line cost us a goal against.. but the Kid line didn't..
You understand the role of momentum in a game and that we were dead in the water after the 2 quick goals against.. mainly because our "push back" shift was with Parros who has done nothing but be a huge minus player.
I am proving a point to you yet you cannot see the point.
Blame gets spread around evenly tonight. Eller played like ****. Galchenyuk was not on his game. Markov scored the goal tonight. None of the forwards did.
But blame Parros. Yes, that is smart.
And if you really want to be accurate about that goal, Subban was out high in the slot and screened Price.
This team is reminding me of the team that finished bottom 3 a couple of years ago. We weren't that bad at the start that year but couldn't get a win to save our lives despite outplaying the other team or playing well enough to win.
The thing that bothers me is that the Habs did have chances to win their last 4 games. They haven't played terrible. They're just not playing smart hockey. They can't bury chances and they can't keep teams from in front of their net.
I'd feel a lot better if they were being lazy and not competing but that isn't the issue, which means we're going to have difficulty winning games this year. This is the team we have and it isn't pretty.
