What many Hab fans thought impossible has happened this season. Montreal has fallen behind Boston and Ottawa, and now is two spots out of a Wild Card berth for a play off spot.
The Bruins helped themselves in easily knocking out Montreal with their 4-1 victory at the Bell Centre.
To add insult to injury to Montreal’s free fall, Zach Kassian had an goal and assist for Edmonton as he has been playing Kassian hockey since being traded by the team. Montreal took 64 attempts to 44 attempts on goal vs Boston, but to no avail.
The Hockey Gods clearly are not happy with les boys as pucks danced off and around sticks and general confusion abounded, especially in the defensive zone.
The team clearly needs a gasp of oxygen as they are jittery in their own zone and are forcing things in desperation many times. Even the goal scored by Mark Barberio, whose been a nice edition to the bottom of the D pile, involved two Habs bumping into each other on the play.
The only solution may be a big trade or the firing of coach Michel Therrien….or both.
What do you think Habs fans? And will the Senators finish the season with more points than Montreal?
