Last Word on Habs Pod – Episode 10 (Have the Montreal Canadiens Turned it Around?)
Be sure to follow @LWOS_Habs for Habs news, commentary, and analysis.
This week we talked about wins over the Columbus Blue Jackets, Ottawa Senators. The Canadiens faced the Detriot Red Wings twice this week and won big. Paul Byron scored his first hat-trick. We talked about Carey Price. Since his return, Price has gone 5-0-0 and stopped 150 of 156 shots. His 1.20 GAA. .962 SA% is a far cry from his poor start. With no guest, Connor and Johannes delved into the benefits of the weak Atlantic division and revisited our rebuild discussion/debate. We concluded by commenting on the coverage of the Daniel Briere memoir in which he highlighted Michel Therrien’s approach to “motivational” coaching.
