Defence and penalty-kill become black holes for Canadiens

  Defence and penalty-kill become black holes for Canadiens The numbers appears damning. The Canadiens have given up 23 goals during regulation time this season and Shea Weber and/or Victor Mete have been on the ice for 14 of those goals. Weber has been on the ice for the last eight goals scored against the Canadiens. But the team insists there’s no sense of panic as they prepare to close out a four-game homestand with a game against the Minnesota Wild on Thursday (7 p.m., TSN2, RDS, TSN 690 Radio). “There’s been a lot of goals, but last night the first goal (Tampa Bay) scored, we had forwards who could have got the puck out three or four times and they didn’t.

San Jose goaltender Aaron Dell had the hot hand and Carey Price did not.

That was the story Thursday as the San Jose Sharks defeated the Canadiens 4-2 at the Bell Centre. It was San Jose’s ninth consecutive victory over the Canadiens, whose last win over San Jose was on March 21, 2015.

The loss left the Canadiens out of a playoff position with a 4-4-2 record. What is more troubling is that they are 2-3-0 at home with the struggling, but potentially explosive, Toronto Maple Leafs coming to the Bell Centre Saturday.

Canadiens expected to use both goalies in weekend road games

  Canadiens expected to use both goalies in weekend road games ST. LOUIS — Canadiens coach Claude Julien plans to use both his goalies this weekend, but he wasn’t saying after practice Friday in Brossard which order they will play. The Canadiens flew to St. Louis after practice for the start of a busy weekend with road games against the Blues on Saturday (3 p.m., TSN2, RDS, TSN 690 Radio) and the Minnesota Wild on Sunday ( 5 p.m., TSN2, RDS, TSN 690 Radio). The Canadiens flew to St. Louis after practice for the start of a busy weekend with road games against the Blues on Saturday (3 p.m., TSN2, RDS, TSN 690 Radio) and the Minnesota Wild on Sunday ( 5 p.m., TSN2, RDS, TSN 690 Radio).

The Montreal defence wasn’t very good and it started with the penalty-kill, which let the Canadiens down once again.

Montreal was nursing a 1-0 lead when Evander Kane scored on a scramble in front with 55 seconds remaining in the first period. There seemed to be some confusion in front of the net as the Sharks had a couple of swipes at the puck before Kane connected.

Kane added a second power-play goal to give San Jose a 2-1 lead in the second period. He picked up the rebound of Tomas Hertl’s shot at the side of the net and shovelled in a backhander before Price was able to move across and cover the empty portion of the net. San Jose scored on two of their three power plays and the Canadiens have given up 11 goals on 34 power plays and have the second-worst penalty-kill in the NHL, with a success rate of 67.6 per cent.

The power play has been better this season, but it went 0-for-3 Thursday night. The Canadiens’ power play had seven shots on goal and Dell played a key role in keeping them off the board. Dell finished the game with 35 saves while Price, who didn’t get a lot of help from his defence, had 19.

The Canadiens outshot the Sharks 16-6 in the second period, but three of those San Jose shots found the back of the net. Kevin Labanc and Melker Karlsson scored to give the Sharks a 4-1 lead before Joel Armia scored with 14 seconds left in the period. Armia redirected Max Domi’s shot from the side boards for his team-leading fifth goal of the season.

The Canadiens had the better of the play in the first period and opened the scoring when Nick Cousins scored his first goal as a Canadien. He was on a 2-on-1 break with Brendan Gallagher when he elected to shoot off the left wing. Dell made the save, but Cousins followed up and potted the rebound.

The death penalty is the ultimate cruel, inhuman and degrading punishment. Amnesty opposes the death penalty in all cases without exception - regardless of who is accused, the nature or circumstances of the crime, guilt or innocence or method of execution.

The Habs Penalty Kill was one of the reasons why they lost two out of three games this week. The Canadiens blew two third period leads to the Tampa Bay Lightning, and the Pittsburgh Penguins. However, the Canadiens will take the four points that they earned in the Standings, this past week.

The Canadiens caught a break after Barclay Goodrow appeared to give the Sharks a 1-0 lead at 7:03 of the first period. Goodrow had a step on Ben Chiarot as he took a pass from Joe Thornton and beat Carey Price off the rush. Claude Julien didn’t waste any time challenging the goal and the replay showed that Goodrow crossed the blue line before Thornton carried the puck into the zone.

The Canadiens were hoping to cap a great road trip with a win Saturday, but they had to settle for a good trip after an old friend and an old nemesis combined to lead the Dallas Stars to a 4-1 win over the Canadiens at the American Airlines Center. The old friend was Alexander Radulov, who resurrected his NHL when he played for the Canadiens two seasons ago, and got Dallas going with a first-period power-play goal. The old nemesis was goaltender Ben Bishop, who came into this game with a 1.79 goals-against average.
