The Canadiens lost their sixth straight game on Saturday night at the Bell Centre. However, if you look beyond the results, the team played well and came close in all games to win.
In a post-game press conference, Martin St-Louis asked a question about the players' motivation for moral victories.
Martin, there are some players who are not big fans of moral victories. When you see your team staying competitive against National League powers () how would you describe the job you're going to have in front of you to make sure those moral victories there, they buy into that so they build on it?"
The coach was quick to set the reporter straight.
Who? The players? Do they look discouraged? That's right. Because I don't feel like a salesman right now. My team is here and they're not discouraged."
