Au revoir Canadiens – Bonne saison du golf

Au revoir Canadiens – Bonne saison du golf

To the dismay of many, what started out as a fantastic season for the Montreal Canadiens filled with explosions and fireworks concluded with a finale that fell flat like a b-list action movie.

This means that the second team in the Eastern Conference has now been eliminated, and its members can begin their vacation. Now its members can think of vacationing to Vegas if we’re to paraphrase Jean-Sebastien Giguere. The Canadiens’ season ended last night at the Bell Centre with a 6-1 loss against the Ottawa Senators.

Ottawa now moves on for the first time since 2007, when they lost in the Stanley Cup finals to the Anaheim Ducks.

Last night’s loss to the Senators angered many of the 21,273 supporters as many left the Bell Centre before the end. One fan even had the audacity to go as far as to toss his jersey onto the ice in disgust to the loss against the vastly overlooked Senators that beat the Canadiens in five small plays.

Head coach, Michel Therrien is choosing to see the glass half full, despite the loss. “While it wasn’t a step in the right direction, but we are very aware that there is much work to do. I must say that the Senators took advantage of their chances. “

Indeed. In this regard, the first period of last night was an excellent summary of this series. While Montreal dominated at starting, the Senators took a 2-0 lead on goals by Smith and Conacher. Peter Budaj, the backup goalie called to take over Carey Price seemed nervous from the start.

At the other end of the rink, Craig Anderson was still in a state of grace in his net with 33 saves, and we can say that this also pretty much sums up the look of this series.

“Craig Anderson was the best player in the series,” remarked Michel Therrien, who refused to point the finger at his players to explain this rather quick exit from the finals.

Only PK Subban briefly rekindled the flame of hope for a big lead late in the first period, but the Senators soon crushed that dream when they doused their flame with Gatorade with four goals by Turris, Alfredsson, Cory Conacher and finally Erik Condra.

Michel Therrien said that the Canadiens had to do without some of its better players last night, including Carrey Price, Gionta, Prust, White and of course Eller.

“Despite the fact that we were missing a lot of players, we started the game off in the right vein. We needed some guys who are important to us … But we must pay tribute to the Ottawa Senators and Craig Anderson, who was in our eyes the best player of the series. It’s hard to deal with a guard like that, who is in full control of its resources. “

In the locker room of the Canadiens, it was a bit heavy. Taking Josh Georges as an example, many of the players seemed crushed. “It’s hard trying to find a positive side to all this now,” whispered the defender.

While the Canadiens season has ended Ottawa’s victory gives them time to rest up and heal a few of their hard earned bruises before the conference semi-finals begin next week.
