After getting a short winning streak going, the Canadiens played their hearts out in a first period against Buffalo… the a quick goal at the end of the first… no big deal…
Looking for answers
Another goal coming in the second… the wheels flew off.
Tonight, the Habs play in Atlanta.
Halak will most certainly be in goal.
I’m hoping the team can find a way to come together. They need to play so much tougher then they did vs Buffalo.
With big Georges Laraque out with more injuries to his back and his season all but done… the guys HAVE to play tough as a unit. Much like Carbo talked about, but we didn’t see last game.
Tom Kostopoulos, Maxim Lapierre, Gregory Stewart… these guys will and should paly tough… so should Komisarek, but I have to believe that he’s hurt.
Over the last few seasons, we’ve seen it over and over again…. guy hammers your captain… or another guy like Kovalev… no one responds…. guy comes through the crease and hammers Price… Halak…. no one responds….
Moves were made to adresse some of those problems. One of those moves was Georges Laraque. But Georges Laraque was practically not %100 all season… much of the season out due to injury and now seems as though he’s out.
So tonight… a big test. I believe Atlanta will be out to hit guys and jam the net. Carbo and crew NEED to play tough….. they need to jam Atlanta’s net… to get the emotions going…
From a fan’s point of view, if they don’t play tough the season may be over. Really.
I’m hoping to see Tanguay back in the lineup tonight. And please… I would put Dandenault in there on D… give him some time…. give Breezer a break.
