Here are the game highlights from the Montreal Canadiens vs the Washington Capitals played on January 5th 2010.
Washington won this game 4-2. The Canadiens managed to make it close towards the end by making it 3-2… but in all honesty the only thing that kept them in the game was their goaltender. On this night it was Carey Price.
An all to common theme. Outshot 43-26 by Washington it looked as though the Canadiens were just out-worked all night long. In many of the games battles for the puck the Capitals would just come out on top.
Frustrating to see this scenario play out again and again. We have the luxury of having 2 great young goaltenders at the moment. Both Price and Halak have played great, but you can’t expect the Habs to win too many if they continue to be so badly outshot. Team defense is a biggie.
