The Montreal Canadiens lost again last night. That's not really anything too surprising given their play of late.
But what makes this win more painful was the 4-2 lead the Habs held to start the third period. And this despite being outshot 22-18 through two periods.
But the Pens turned it on in the third as the Habs now patented third period collapse reared it's ugly head.
I guess the coach really doesn't know what to do when he's putting Scott Gomez, who hasn't scored in almost a year, out there in the shootout. Montreal picks up one point in the shootout loss but, with 43, sits three points out of last in the East.
But at least they scored a powerplay goal yesterday!
