Sean and Zach gather in the pod-pod for the first time in some time to throw out potential ways to fix the Montreal Canadiens. From President Koivu to trading Weber & Price, and everything in between, this episode tries to figure out the best path forward for a struggling organization. Plus, talk about the playoffs!
The 2017-2018 season is one Habs fans will want to forget, but it’s legacy could have long lasting implications. Plenty to be determined in the offseason and the seasons to come for a team in a bad place. But before all that, the Habs had one more game to play and – appropriately enough – it finished ugly, just as it deserved.
Taylor Hall continued to make his case for the Hart Trophy on a night Carey Price tied Jacques Plante for first all-time in games played by a Montreal Canadiens netminder. Price was solid on the night, looking like his old self for a change, but the Habs anemic offence was still enough to keep them from collecting any points and bettering their odds for that coveted first overall pick.
Brendan Gallagher scored a pair of Gallagher-esque goals on the way to leading your Montreal Canadiens past Detroit in the standings (not good) but at least Gallagher hit the 30-goal mark for the first time in his career. Paul Byron edged closer to the 20-goal plateau with his 19th and Carey Price looked pretty normal.
