Montreal Canadiens Week 8: The Good, The Bad And The Injuries

November 23rd, 2009 by Miah D. Leave a reply »
The Montreal Canadiens closed their eighth week in a less painful way than many had anticipated.

The apprehension regarding the two last games was so strong, that it sounded as if the team “Banana split” from the Garage league of Goone-land was going to face an NHL team.  

The Good.

A few points are quite encouraging from last week’s challenges. Bob Gainey can now at least close one eye when he sleeps at night.

Let’s start with his goaltender.

The game against the Nashville Predators seemed to have brought some confidence and grit back to Carey Price. He is 3-1-1 at his last five starts, and allowed only two goals per game.

Protecting this kid as if the sun could set him on fire, Gainey is finally recovering the Price to whom he gave the number one spot.
