And so it goes. Habs get shelled 5-1 in the first against the Rangers, go on to crush the Wild 8-1, and then fail to score at all against the Sabres.
As if that wasn't bad enough, the two games in which Montreal shit the bed were against Eastern Conference teams, one of which is in their own division. That whupping they put on Jose Theodore was against a Western Conference team.
