The Montreal Canadiens are shitting the bed so often these days you'd think writing these updates would become tedious.
It happened again last night, the Habs lost another road game, this time 5-4 in Pittsburgh.
Sergei Gonchar's first goal of the season, in the eighth minute of the third period, proved to be the winner as the Habs lost their 12th game in the last 15.
Twelve of their last 15, not even the lowly Toronto Maple Leafs can make that claim, and they apparently don't have half the talent the Habs do. (something I might argue)
The Habs have settled to a place where they belong, a rag tag bunch of mediocre strokers battling for a playoff spot that's quickly slipping away.
Get a load of this one.
I'm sooo pissed off.......
I had two Montreal Canadiens tickets sitting in plain view on my car dashboard.
Some bastard broke my window and left two more.
What an asshole!
Actually, this is a Leaf joke making the rounds, but hey, I like it better this way.
Let's review shall we. The Habs conclude a six game road trip with a record of one and five. They managed only three of a possible 12 points. They've lost nine of their last ten road games and seven of their last ten over-all.
The playoff situation is enough to make a big mouth Hab fan soil his jeans from fear.
The Habs remain sixth in the east, just one point up on Buffalo and Florida, but Carolina won last night, so the ninth place Hurricanes trail by only four. The tenth place Penguins are only five points back.
It was sad.. it was sad.. it was sad when the great ship went down..
Tomorrow the Habs host Ottawa as part of Hockey Day in Canada.
Gulp! Go Sens Go
