Last Word on Habs Pod: Montreal Canadiens Need to Best the West

This week, the guys start the episode but putting in as much effort as the Habs did this past week. For a team that is in a playoff race, the Habs certainly did not come out in any games this week ready to play or compete. And what seemed like a gift from the schedule turned into a frustrating week.

Connor and Johannes then take a quick look at the trade deadline and the Habs (lack) of moves. The guys were not impressed with Marc Bergevin‘s press conference and excuses for not making a bigger deal. Johannes is eager to see secret weapon Jordan Weal though.

They guys discuss the Habs big west coast California road trip. This trip is usually not very kind to the Habs. If the Habs want to stay relevant in the playoff conversation they need to do well. Considering the Ducks and Kings are at the bottom of the Western Conference standings, the Habs need to take advantage.

All this and Antti Niemi talk, John Tavares day, winners and losers and much much more!

TUNE IN!
