It was a rough week for the Canadiens, who were able to snap a three-game losing streak on Wednesday night with a 2-1 overtime win over the Florida Panthers. That game followed a loss at the hands of the Tampa Bay Lightning, Montreal’s first game since Ryan O’Byrne and Tom Kostopoulos were arrested outside a Tampa bar early Monday morning.
In this week’s podcast, Gazette sports editor Stu Cowan, Pat Hickey and Mike Boone, as well as moderator Kevin Mio, examine the players’ arrests and the possible implications for each. We also discuss the return of Carey Price, who appears to have regained his confidence, which can only be good news for the Canadiens.
Also up for discussion is the improved play of Saku Koivu and Christopher Higgins over the last few games, the trade rumous swirling around the team, the importance of getting Roman Hamrlik back in the lineup and much more.
