1st Goat: Chris Campoli - Montreal CanadiensThe Canadiens defensemen had a bad night on the ice, logging 20 minutes in ice time and having a -3 in the +/- category. The Habs lost the game to Winnipeg by the final score of 4-0. They continue to fall down in the standings as they currently sit at the bottom of their division and 12th in the Eastern Conference. 2nd Goat: Jeff Rimer - Play-by-Play Announcer: Columbus Blue JacketsIt would probably be wise for the NHL to start holding hockey term clinics in Columbus. After Jeff Carter scores his third goal of the night in Nashville, Blue Jackets play-by-play announcer, Jeff Rimer, declares that Carter had a natural hat trick.

Taking Ownership Of The Problems In Montreal

from Elliotte Friedman of CBC, As bad as all of this is, the Canadiens are just four points out of the playoffs. This season is not lost, unless the organization believes it’s time to start over. But the patient is not going to survive unless someone steps up with a defibrillator. That person is not Pierre Gauthier. It’s not Cunneyworth. And it’s not Brian Gionta, or any other...
