Martin St-Louis describes Thursday night embarrassing performance in the post game presser

After seven consecutive losses, the Canadiens finally managed to win in Pittsburgh on Tuesday night against the Penguins. However, the celebrations were short-lived.

In Sunrise to face the Panthers on Thursday night, the Tricolore got off to a good start with a quick goal in the opening seconds. Then came a flurry of goals for a total of 10 in the first twenty minutes, including seven for the home team.

The Habs are able to score goals, but they still have to defend their zone. Martin St-Louis had the perfect word to describe the team's defensive performance in the post-game press conference:

"Defensively, we kind of forgot all our stuff. Offensively, we had 3 goals after 3 shots, but we have to know how to defend. I know we know, but tonight we had forgotten everything. We weren't very smart on the ice defensively."


- Martin St-Louis


Outch! When the coach admits that the team wasn't smart, it has the merit of being clear and it spits hard. Fortunately, it's quite rare to see nine goals by one team in a game, even rarer to score seven in one period.

Injuries and lack of talent are really taking their toll on the Habs, who are fighting playoff teams almost every game. The effort is there, but at some point, it takes more than that to win on a regular basis.
