Carey Price gave up a gift to fomer Canadien J.T Wyman while he also looked shaky on the rebound that led to Lecavalier's goal.
The loss puts Montreal 13th in the Eastern Conference, a whole seven points out of a playoff spot. Like it or not, Habs management need to start looking towards building for next year.
Is now the time to get value for pending free agents like Hal Gill, Andrei Kostitsyn and Travis Moen? What should be done with Scott Gomez? What about Andrei Markov?
Amidst the negativity, at least Raphael Diaz and Alexei Emelin have been bright spots. The Swiss born blueliner has five assists in his last two contests while Emelin delivered another six hits last night. Unlike many, they both seem to be part of the solution.
