Canadiens-Thrashers: That Sinking Feeling.

Francois GendronSenior Writer IMarch 6, 2009

Tonight, the Montreal Canadiens lost by the score of 2-0 to one of the worse teams of the NHL, the Atlanta Trashers.

To briefly resume this game, we can safely say that the Canadiens did not play according to the game plan set by the head coach Guy Carbonneau. The team did not looked ready to play and did not challenged goaltender Kari Lehtonen until the late stages of the game.

On top of this, too many penalties were taken by the Canadiens players resulting in a difficult pace of the game.

Carey Price played a solid game, despite losing a seventh-consecutive start. Bryan Little and Rich Peverly——in an empty net—scored for the Trashers.

The Canadiens are starting to sink in the Eastern conference standings and will try to stay among the top eight teams of the Eastern conference Sunday in Dallas.
