We’ve decided to restart a regular News/Bruit column that will give our readers a look at what other media outlets and websites are saying about the Canadiens and their opponents, so let’s get right down to business.
> Pierre Durocher of the Journal de Montréal writes that the Canadiens were smiling after Sunday’s game and expressed satisfaction at being where they are and proving the experts wrong. Durocher also writes that the doors to the Philly locker room stayed closed long after the game as the Flyers held a meeting after their seventh straight loss.
> The headline in the Philadelphia Inquirer reads: Montreal punishes the Flyers.
> In the Globe and Mail this morning, the news was all about the Flyers seventh straight loss and how they can stop the slide.
> With the Canadiens now tied with the Ottawa Senators with 73 points, the Ottawa Citizen looks at the team’s steady decline recently.
> Not only did the Canadiens hand Philly its seventh straight loss,
they took out some of the Flyers in the process, according to phillyBurbs.com. Those injured include Steve Downie and Joffrey Lupul.
> Marc Antoine Godin of La Presse writes that with 23 healthy bodies, Guy Carbonneau has to leave three players in the stands every game, and that doesn’t make everyone happy.
