Habs: One away from the team record.
The Montreal Canadiens have suffered a 6th loss in a row in their own building, a 3-2 loss yesterday against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Saturday evening, a 7th loss in a row will tie a 1935 record.
After taking a 1-0 lead thru Alex Kovalev's 13th goal of the season, Vincent Lecavalier and Andre Roy sent Tampa in front by 2-1. It took a lot of efforts from Montreal to finally tie up the score. Tomas Plekanec managed to tie the game up at 2-2 with just over 5 minutes to go to the contest.
The Lightning finally won the game during the shootout when Brad Richards had a perfect shot in store, a shot that went over Carey Price's right shoulder. Marc Denis was in net for Tampa and has won his first game of the season.
If the team has some pride left, they will play a desperate game against the Toronto Maple Leafs on saturday to avoid losing a 7th game in front of their own fans.
