Leafs Embarrass Habs, Eller vs. Desharnais, Gallagher Review And More...

Good Morning Addicts!

Carey Price will look to bounce back tomorrow night against
the Flyers after being pulled in last nights loss.

Last night's 5-1 loss against the Toronto Maple Leafs was one to forget. Carey Price was pulled from the game after allowing three goals on only four shots and Leafs 'tender James Reimer made big saves early when the Canadiens were still pushing despite being down.

Davis Drewiske scored his first goal in a Habs uniform to make it 3-1 at the 13:08 minute mark but Dion Phaneuf snapped a shot through a plethora of Habs players and past Peter Budaj to regain the three goal lead just four minutes after.

Montreal just didn't have any fight in them after that and Toronto just blew through the Canadiens for an easy two points.

If there was any silver lining for Habs fans on a night that left little reason to be smiling, the Carolina Hurricanes doubled the Bruins two goals to leave Montreal atop the Northeast Division.

The Canadiens, who have now been embarassed twice by the Leafs, will have one last chance to redeem themselves as the two clubs will finish their seasons against each other in Toronto on April 27th.

Habs And Hockey News

- Brendan Gallagher, as per usual, did not quit through 60 minutes last night and was the Habs only bright spot. It seems fitting to post Andrew Berkshire's (@AndrewBerkshire) mid season review on the Canadiens' super pest.

- There's been quite a debate this year in Montreal on which player is more valuable to the team. Lars Eller or David Desharnais? Here's an in depth look at the two players from

- It was another tough night for the Hamilton Bulldogs as they were defeated by the Lake Erie Monsters for the second consecutive night. Their 3-2 defeat was their third loss in a row and their seventh in their last ten games.

Thankfully I was working and couldn't watch this game. Unfortunately, I live in Toronto. So I heard about it the whole time. Brutal game. Some teams match up better with others. Leafs are bigger and more physical = tough play. I still think we can take them out in a playoff series, but it would be a test.

I watched the whole game because I am a diehard. Carey Price let in softies. All goalies have a bad game. Perhaps it was a "made the playoffs hangover". I thought the effort was there. One of the goals Bealieau was turned inside out and looked silly but he is a rookie. The overall effort wasnt bad they seem to never want to quit. Markov was blocking shots in the 3rd for example. Toronto may be over confident when the playoffs come if it comes down to that. Dont panic and remember the old saying your never as bad as your worse game and your never as good as your best. If Price didnt give up the first few shots for goals the whole game would have been different. Price will perform when it counts I have all the confidence in the young man he is a class act.
