Do we have to discuss additional time? The Canadiens at the moment are 0-7 as soon as the clock strikes previous the 60-minute mark. However we’re seeing some adjustments in the way in which the Habs handle the 3-on-3 session.
Now if solely they may execute.
The straightforward of us on the Gazette have been fully perplexed at Montreal’s “tentative” strategy to time beyond regulation. However the intent was clear: keep possession through the first jiffy to tire the Canucks, significantly Quinn Hughes, within the hopes that fatigue would induce errors in play or on a line change.
Whether or not one agrees with the technique or not, it’s new for the Canadiens introduced by interim head coach Dominique Ducharme. Hughes’ shift to begin OT was within the 2:10 vary, however there have been no errors to talk about. As an alternative it was Montreal who made unprovoked errors.
It was within the shootout the place Ducharme supplied up loads of ammunition for his critics. His participant decisions have been uninspired, and in flip, every shooter delivered a pathetic effort.
What was lacking within the shootout was a capability to complete. But when the Canadiens had any diploma of that, this recreation wouldn’t have gone to additional time within the first place. Even Ducharme acknowledged that Montreal had loads of alternatives to attain in regulation however couldn’t end.
Carey Value was sensible persevering with his sturdy play in his final three begins.
The Canadiens will follow on Tuesday to prepare for his or her Wednesday rematch with the Canucks.
