After a second loss in as many nights, the atmosphere in the locker room was quite tense yesterday. It must be said that losing a game 7 to 2 is particularly hard on morale.

In fact, after picking up a point in the loss to the Florida Panthers, Habs forward Jonathan Drouin made a statement at the post-game press conference.

Like his captain the day before, the Quebecer admitted from the start that he and his teammates were very frustrated with the loss, and he tried to pass on a message to wake up the troops.

"Yes, it's frustrating and I'd rather see that (the players bickering) than sit on the bench and let the clock run out. We're not happy with our play and the results. It's in our hands." - Jonathan Drouin



CH #27 also threw flowers at defenseman Arber Xheka, who scored a big goal late in the first period on the power play.

"He's got a really good shot and that was the plan: to allow him to shoot on the catch with two guys near the net." - Jonathan Drouin

It might be time to use his power play a little more with the man advantage, to give the five-man offense more threatening options.

To listen to his media availability, it's here:
