Found January 21, 2012 on Habsblog:
Classic 11-12 Canadiens. Take a 4-2 lead into the third period and blo it all to eventually lose in OT. I couldn’t watch last night due to a family function, but something tells me that I didn’t need to see it go down to understand what happened. Frankly, I had no illusions that an immaculate run for the playoffs was possible, even though I harbour no ill-will to those who want to hope that a comeback is possible. Frankly, I’m the type of person who sees a losing season as an opportunity, one in which a team who is smart in trade, can set up the next season by identifying the team’s strengths and weaknesses. Tonight the Habs will face the Leafs in a game that will no doubt be important to some fans bu ultimately holds little meaning outside of bragging rights.

P.K. Subban slewfoots Chris Kunitz

Hum! Another game, another P.K. Subban atrocity by the Habs defenseman, well maybe not, but I think this is the same thing that Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand got fined for when he slew footed Matt Niskanen.

With that in mind, I'd like to thank P.K. Subban for reminding us all of the effectiveness of the traditional slewfoot. One imagines Chris Kunitz...

Montreal blows another one

The Canadiens blew a 4-2 lead Friday night, losing 5-4 in a shootout to Piitsburgh. The Habs have now won 1 of 8 shootouts, and scored 4 goals in them. But who’s counting? Many will blame PK Subban for this loss, pegging him for the Dustin Jeffrey goal that started the comeback. I think that’s bunk. Scott Gomez was out of position, and the rest of the team basically stopped...
