This time, it was 3-1. And they lost 5-3.
Sure, there were some awful calls by the referee, and the winning goal was very questionable due to a trip on Erik Cole that led to the play, but the Habs blew this one. Plain and simple. Perhaps that is part of the reason that Randy Cunneyworth appeared close to coming onto the ice after the Cole non-call. He was furious. Shaking. And he had a stick. Luckily, Cunneyworth got the better of his emotions and stayed calm for the rest of the loss.
I must say, I feel for Cunneyworth. He’s been dealt a deck stacked completely against him. He can’t win. And it’s a shame. Is Pierre Gauthier’s strategy to make him the next scapegoat? Who knows. But one thing is for certain: this team has quickly turned the wrong way, and it doesn’t appear to be coming back.

P.K. Subban on Adam Larsson. No penalty and no update on Larsson.
Rookie defenseman Adam Larsson left the Devils' 5-3 win after a devastating hit from Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban during the third period.
The Devils’ prize rookie draftee might miss tomorrow’s visit to Philadelphia because of the crumpling hit P.K. Subban laid on him last night. The Canadiens think Adam Larsson should sit out anyway by suspension.
The sight of Larsson stretched out on the ice was an example of vigilante...
