Canadiens lose big again, this time to the Penguins

Apr 17, 2013, 10:16 PM EST

With the playoffs on the horizon, the Montreal Canadiens are playing some of their worst hockey of the season.

The Canadiens lost 6-4 to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday night, giving them three consecutive losses.

Most concerning is the fact the Canadiens have allowed 18 goals in the past three games. They fell behind the Penguins by four goals before the five-minute mark of the second period and it was a futile game of catch-up afterward.

The Penguins, on the other hand, have won their last five games and moved even closer to securing the top seed in the Eastern Conference. The night provided one milestone for Jarome Iginla, acquired prior to the trade deadline.

Jussi Jokinen also left the game for Pittsburgh, however the Penguins reported on their official Twitter account that it was because of illness, not injury.

    Lets all just pause and think of how huge of an embarrassment PK Subban is.

    Disgusting

      Agreed! Subban picks a fight, then immediately turtles.

      (I always wanted to use “turtle” as a verb. Thanks for the opportunity PK!)

      I loved it! He wasn’t just rattled either, he was FIRED UP! That’s exactly the kind of stuff I wanted to see out of Morrow and Iggy whenever I heard we got them. The Pens lacked that physical leadership presence in the playoffs last year and it was arguably their death sentence. The fact Morrow has found his niche these last few games offensively is just an added bonus.

      Bennett has been great, too! I’d hate to see him be sent back down for the playoffs. He just gets better and better every game. Pens will have their hands full with deciding which 18 skaters crack the roster on game days come playoffs. I guess it’s a good problem to have though.

    And Cooke is such class act too right? give me a break man…LOL

      Actually, when Cooke has been called out to fight he has. He is not a fighter but owned up to his hit on Savard and fought a much bigger guy and a true fighter in Shawn Thorton. Subban has a history of trying to land a quick haymaker before the fight starts and then turtle until the linesman jump in. This also doesn’t even take into account Gionta who has been called out multiple times in the last few games but is continually hiding behind Prust.

    Rwbart,

    Shero is amazing. Great moves.

    I am ….he’s a dirty rat ask Karlsson

    • pitpenguinsrulez - Apr 17, 2013 at 11:58 PM

      I think someone forgot their pacifier…maybe you could go suck on that while you cry about a freak accident!! Get over it!!! Oh wait you cant because your still talking about it two months later…so pathetic!!

    • hockeywithdrawal - Apr 18, 2013 at 8:38 AM

      Yeah, about that. To be honest that was a horrible accident – Karlsson is one of my favorite defenders (probably 6th or 7th best in my book). Cooke’s taken a lot of sh*t for a move that no one could logically do on purpose…what I’d LOVE to see, when Karlsson gets back, is Cooke challenge him to a fight. Face to face, man to man, no reporters, no b*tchy little whiney GM’s.

      I’d love to see Cooke crank Karlsson’s face in extreme fashion for his BS comments and yours. Cooke hardly even gets involved in the messy stuff anymore – just does his job.

      Wasn’t a dirty play dumbass – it was a hockey play that ended badly – believe me if there was any penalty or misconduct in anyway “Cookie Monster” would have been called on it – he is the one Skater in the NHL that would never and I mean NEVER get a pass or any kinda benifit of the doubt ….. Sour grapes !!!!!
