• At a Glance: The Canadiens rolled to a 2-0 first-period lead Monday night at the Well Fargo Center, then pretty much forgot about playing for most of the rest of the night, surrendering three unanswered goals to the Philadelphia Flyers in a 3-2 loss.
• Key Moments: The forecast fireworks involving P.K. Subban and Mike Richards naturally didn’t materialize. Subban seemed a little off his game, perhaps the result of the circus of the past week. Otherwise, two goals by Maxim Lapierre and a sensational performance by goaltender Carey Price, who made 41 saves in all, were wasted.
• What It Means: Consider it tasty revenge for the Flyers (14-6-2), who lost to the Habs 3-0 last week in Montreal. The Canadiens, now 13-7-1, came into the game having won six of their most recent seven on the road.
• What’s Next: The Habs chartered home immediately after the game. They’re home to Los Angeles on Wednesday, in Atlanta on Friday then back to the Bell Centre on Saturday against Buffalo.
