Canadiens/Bruins Post Game, Sutter, Red Line and More

Tim Thomas - Montreal Canadiens v Boston Bruins
That was rough start to the season's longest road trip, wasn't it?

Last night the Canadiens fell to the Bruins 3-2. Although the effort was there, turnovers absolutely killed the Habs. P.K Subban's less than slick between the legs pass and Travis Moen's inability to clear the zone proved costly.

It is one thing to make mistakes. It is another thing to make mistakes because you refuse to make the simple play. I'm sure Randy Cunneyworth was none too impressed.

And, yet, the Canadiens remain two points out of a playoff spot.

Then again, in the grand scheme of things, perhaps missing the post-season would be best?

Louis' Note: The notion that restoring two line passes in the NHL would curb concussions is silly. It would slow down the game considerably, it would not prevent hits targeting the head. NCAA and IIHF rules have long since eliminated the red line and, at those levels, concussion epidemics have yet to arise.
