Montreal-Quebec Series: Do We Have A Series?
Game three of this eight-game challenge was disputed yesterday in Quebec city. Quebec was in a must-win situation as they could not afford being down 0-3.
After winning the first two games of the series rather easily, the players from Montreal did not show the same intensity and lost by the score of 6-2.
There is no explanation other than the lack of intensity to describe the poor performance from team Montreal. With the first two games in their back pocket, many players took the third game off, hoping that a teammate will pick up the slack. Unfortunatly, nobody did picked up their game.
For Quebec city, the next game will be a glorious chance to tie up the series at two games apiece. Yes, Quebec has an inferior team but we all know that nobody can win an ice hockey game without spilling their guts on the ice.
The players from Montreal will have to look themselves in the mirror and commit themselves before game four of the series in order to keep control of the series. Game four will be played next Sunday in Montreal.
Game 3: Quebec city 6 - Montreal 2 (Montreal leads the series by 2-1.)
