Montreal Canadiens Suffer a Fourth Straight Loss

Daniel ArouchianSenior Analyst IJanuary 29, 2009

The Montreal Canadiens crumbled once again when they faced the Florida Panthers.This loss is their fourth one in a row! Who's to blame? Guy Carbonneau? The players?

Carey Price was left alone tonight, he's not to blame here. Or is he?

"Yes and no," head coach Guy Carbonneau said of Price. "He didn't play well."

"Our confidence is really low right now and we seemed to go down instead of picking it up and helping each other after that. It was a tough goal for us," said Carbonneau

In his last three games, Price has allowed 14 goals. We're still waiting for him to bounce back!

"We have got to pull together," Price said. "We cannot start pointing fingers now or you will never dig yourself out of the hole."

Robert Lang was the only player from the Habs that scored tonight. He scored his 17th goal of the season on a power play goal 53 seconds into the second period.

Final score: 5-1 Panthers.

A five-game road trip with four consecutive losses. Their next game will be Saturday at the Bell Centre against the LA Kings.
