Charlie Lindgren made 27 saves, including a key save on Carolina’s Andrei Svechnikov to end regulation.

The Canadiens have reached that point in the season where you have to search for positives and you needed the intuitive powers of Sherlock Holmes to find any good news in the Canadiens’ 4-2 loss to the Nashville Predators Tuesday at the Bell Centre.

Claude Julien credited goaltender Carey Price with “saving the furniture” in a scoreless first period, but Price and everyone around him were ineffective in a second period that saw the Predators run up a 4-0 lead.

Canadiens restrict media access to players over coronavirus fears

  Canadiens restrict media access to players over coronavirus fears Fears over the coronavirus have reached the National Hockey League, with teams limiting access to dressing rooms. The Canadiens’ dressing room was closed to the media following Monday’s practice at the Bell Centre. The team did make players available in an area outside the dressing room. The players stood on risers while cameramen and reporters were outside a four-foot buffer zone. Coach Claude Julien followed the usual post-practice protocol, speaking to the media from a podium in the Bell Centre interview room. A spokesman said the team was complying with instructions from the NHL head office.

When the Montreal Canadiens had the puck with 12 seconds left in the third period of a tied playoff game … I don’t believe the decision to scramble back hard, which leaves them with bad gap and allows Palat to move laterally once he gets inside the line, happens in the second period .

The Second Archive is a complementary storage system in which Servant, Craft Essence, Wisdom and Fou cards can be deposited. The Second Archive is subdivided into two separate archives, one dedicated to Servants, Wisdoms and Fous, and another which is exclusive to Craft Essences

“Catastrophic,” was the word Julien used to describe the collapse.

“As professionals, you have to be better than that,” Brendan Gallagher said. “It’s’ very disappointing, obviously. We felt we left our goaltender out to dry and a second period like that cost us the game. We knew how desperate they were going to be. They played well, but at the same time, you have to have expectations of yourself to be better.”

It was an important win for the Predators, who moved into the top two wild-card spot in the Western Conference with 78 points. They are tied in points with Winnipeg, but have the edge because they have a game in hand on the Jets.

The absence of Tomas Tatar, who is out indefinitely with a shoulder injury, and Jonathan Drouin — he’s still recovering from ankle injury — prompted Julien to juggle his lines and Gallagher said there are adjustments to be made.

About Last Night: Domi was the Habs' best player against Vancouver, but it wasn't enough

  About Last Night: Domi was the Habs' best player against Vancouver, but it wasn't enough The Canadiens found themselves unlucky losers Tuesday night, spoiling what could’ve been one of the better nights for Max Domi this season. Domi was a focal point of the Montreal Canadiens’ offence, even if it came in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Vancouver Canucks Tuesday night. He picked up primary assists on two of his team’s three goals, led his team with five shots on net, and was his usual feisty self with the opposition.

“They have depth throughout their lineup, (but) I don’t think we sorted it out all that great,” said Gallagher, who played with Max Domi and Charles Hudon. “We were a little loose in our coverage and we allowed them to make a lot of plays.

“For me personally, it always seem to take a little bit of time,” Gallagher said. “I read off my linemates as much as possible. I played with Phil (Danault) and Tuna (Tatar) for so long and it’s a challenge. I’m with good players, (but) it takes a half-second longer to make a play. You have to wait and take a look. It’s going to come. You have to learn from each other.”

The line that had the most success featured rookie Nick Suzuki between Artturi Lehkonen and Jordan Weal. They spent a lot of time in the offensive zone, thanks to some strong forechecking by Suzuki and the hard-working but not always effective Lehkonen.

Forsberg's two-goal performance leads Predators past Canadiens 4-2

  Forsberg's two-goal performance leads Predators past Canadiens 4-2 MONTREAL — Filip Forsberg scored twice as the Nashville Predators fended off a late rally to beat the Montreal Canadiens 4-2 on Tuesday. Ryan Johansen and Calle Jarnkrok also scored in the second period as Nashville (35-26-8), built a 4-0 lead. Artturi Lehkonen and Lukas Vejdemo had goals in the third period as Montreal (31-31-9) lost its third straight game. Juuse Saros made 32 saves for the win in the Predators' net and Carey Price stopped 32 for the Canadiens. It was the league-leading 58th game of the season for Price. The Bell Centre hosted a pre-game ceremony memorializing Habs great Henri Richard, who passed away on Friday.

A day after Julien suggested that Suzuki had hit a wall, he collected  an assist on Lehkonen’s third-period goal that spoiled Juuse Saros’s bid for a third consecutive shutout. It was Suzuki’s first point in nine games.

Lehkonen had an even longer production drought. He was in front of the net to bury Xavier Ouellet’s shot off the end boards. It was his 13th goal of the season, but the first in 17 games.

The other Montreal goal was Lukas Vejdemo’s first in the NHL.

“It’s my first goal so it was fun to score, but I’d rather have a win,” Vejdemo said. “We’ve lost three in a row and that’s no fun.”

There were more empty seats than at any point this season. There might have been some folks who were concerned about the coronavirus, but the more likely explanation is that the fan base has lost interest in a team that has given fans little reason to cheer. The attendance was generously announced as 21,021, about 300 short of a sellout, but there were hundreds, if not thousands, of no-shows.

This hasn’t been a banner season for the hometown crowd. The loss left the Canadiens with a 14-17-5 record at the Bell Centre.

Stu Cowan: Paul Byron's knee injury was a painful one for Canadiens .
TAMPA, Fla. — It was last Dec. 12 and the Canadiens were making their annual Christmas visit to the Montreal Children’s Hospital. Paul Byron was wearing a Santa hat and was helping put smiles on a lot of sick kids’ faces. Byron and his wife, Sarah, have two young children of their own and he’s always great with the kids on the team’s holiday hospital visit. On this day, Byron was hoping for an early Christmas gift himself — a return to the Canadiens’ lineup. Byron had already missed 13 games after injuring his knee during a 5-2 win over the Washington Capitals on Nov. 15 and had surgery four days later.
