Randy Cunneyworth remains winless as Habs coach

Things keep getting worse in Montreal, as Randy Cunneyworth is now 0-3 as the interim Canadiens coach. The Chicago Blackhawks pounded his team 5-1 tonight, which surely won’t translate well considering the furor regarding his hiring and first two losses.

Andrei Kostitsyn started the scoring in the second period, but that started a run of five unanswered goals for the Blackhawks. Perhaps most embarrassingly, Chicago had just as many goals (three) as the Habs had shots in the final frame.

The linguistic and cultural backlash is dominating much of the discussion right now, but things will only get uglier if Cunneyworth goes longer without a win. The humorous part is that much of the blame should fall at the feet of their French-speaking GM with a very French-sounding name, Pierre Gauthier.

Check out the highlights below.

    Here’s a phrase Randy can learn:

    “Il est difficile de voler avec les aigles quand vous êtes entouré par des dindes.”

    It might come in handy very soon.

    I love it when the Habs suck.

    The toilet seat logo has never been more fitting.

    If I were my mother, I’d say something like, “Haven’t they won the Cup something like 26 times? What’s the big deal? Let someone else have a turn.”
