Montreal Canadiens Still Struggling, This Time Against the Toronto Maple Leafs

Daniel ArouchianSenior Analyst IFebruary 7, 2009

The Habs are struggling big time!

Their latest loss came on Saturday versus the Toronto Maple Leafs 5-2.

Matt D'Agostini and Tom Kostopoulos are the only ones who scored for the Habs. Carey Price was in net replacing Jaroslav Halak who was sick. He made 36 saves, but let a total of 30 goals in the last nine games since returning from his injury.

Coach Guy Carbonneau is not happy at all.

"Right now we're struggling on every front," said coach Guy Carbonneau. "We seem to not be able to score goals — or have a tough time scoring goals — and every time we make a mistake, it's in our net.

"It's not a good combination."

When asked about Carey Price, Carbonneau simply replied:

Where do you want me to start?" Carbonneau asked. "He gave five goals."

A six game road trip start on Monday in Calgary. May god be with them.
