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.
