The odds were not in the Habs favour on Wednesday night in Nashville with Antti Niemi in nets and Shea Weber out of the line-up. The Canadiens failed to get a win, but they did earn a point, which is a moral victory of sorts in these dark times.
Zach asks “what are we doing here?” on this one as the Canadiens chances of making the playoffs slip further and further away with every loss. As the Habs faced off against Alex Radulov and the Dallas Stars on Tuesday night,the Canadiens were up to their old tricks of allowing a pair of goals in less than a minute. Ugh.
Zach returns from his trip to Kenya just in time to see the Habs get embarrassed by the red hot Toronto Maple Leafs. Your Montreal Canadiens have no confidence and it shows. Zach grumbles his way through this one with one question left lingering, is there any way we’re looking at a playoff team here? Doesn’t feel like it.
Montreal’s third-string goalie faced-off against Vegas’s fourth-string goalie on Tuesday night as the Canadiens kicked-off their six-game home stand with a nice win in a potential trap game. Brendan Gallagher keeps it going and Pacioretty is back on pace as your Habs inch closer to getting the season entirely back on track.
Charlie Lindgren delivered Montreal’s first victory in Chicago since 2002 as the Habs completed a four-game road trip with six of a possible eight points and are edging closer to turning their season around. Zach digs into Charlie Lindgren’s story on this one and takes a look at how the Canadiens’ blue line is coming along 15 games in.
Sean and Zach pull out the duct tape and chicken wire for another episode of The Big Show, albeit a rickety ride, so apologies for the sound issues (again). New bit on this episode called ‘Believe’ and classic bits like ‘Buying or Selling’ – which is essentially the same thing as ‘Believe’ – and ‘Paging Dr. Recchi’. Plus talk about the inevitable Duchene trade, Price’s issues, and whether or not you can be gritty in a turtleneck.
The Habs went digging in Winnipeg and came up with two of the most important points of this season so far. Brendan Gallagher and Andrew Shaw went to work when another well played game looked like it was about to turn into another painful loss. Zach asserts that if the Canadiens season turns around, this win could turn out to be a pivot point.
