It’s a good thing there are only 12 potential losses left this season because I’m not sure I can take many more gloomy game recaps! A decent effort in the first and second periods went to waste when the Habs allowed the Rangers to outshoot them 16-5 in the third, forcing Carey Price to carry the team through the last frame in order to make it to overtime. After being outshot again in overtime Price had finally had enough, letting in all three shootout attempts with Les Habitants scoring only twice. Alex Kovalev and Maxim Lapierre did have highlight reel goals, apparently enough to keep the Bell Centre crowd to a hiss following the game as opposed to the all-out boos that the team has been leaving the ice to lately.
Another loss and another notch down in the standings – we currently sit at 7th position, three points ahead of the also-slumping Florida Panthers.
