The Canadiens have gone through some highs and lows this week after having narrowed the gap on the Eastern Conference-leading Ottawa Senators to only one point after defeating the Sens. But the Habs stumbled in a loss to the Maple Leafs on Thursday and the team’s play has started to slide a little bit.
In this week’s podcast, The Gazette’s Pat Hickey and Mike Boone, as well as moderator Kevin Mio, examine the team’s play over the last few games and discuss some of the lapses the team has suffered from lately. We also look at the return of Carey Price, how Cristobal Huet will handle the increased workload he has faced and is likely to continue facing in the coming weeks.
Also up for discussion is the possible return of Ryan O’Byrne, the Saku Koivu situation, the team’s lack of secondary scoring and what, if any, moves general manager Bob Gainey will make before the looming trad deadline.
