Canadian ends California trip with defeat
After winning the first two games of their California trip (Anaheim and San Jose), the Canadiens had the chance to sweep their three-game series in the American West.

But to do so, they had to face one of the NHL’s hottest teams, the Los Angeles Kings.

Here’s Martin St-Louis’ line-up:

And the opponent’s:

In the first period, it looked like Montreal was playing its third game in four days.

The club took only one shot on net in the first 20 minutes. And that shot came from the defensive zone. It’s easy to see why Los Angeles has allowed five goals in its last four games…

The Kings have scored once on nine shots.

Carl Grundstrom found the back of the net with the help of a perfect shot.

In the second period, the CH got a power play early on, but unfortunately didn’t score.

Brendan Gallagher and Phillip Danault were able to make up for lost time with a face-off.

The Quebecer easily won it.

With just over ten minutes left in the second period, Trevor Moore doubled his team’s lead with a bizarre goal.

Jake Allen was slow to move on it.

In the third period, Los Angeles really dominated, so much so that Jake Allen was left to his own devices.

After allowing a goal to Trevor Lewis, the goalie saved the day against his former teammate.

A hard afternoon’s work for Montreal, who finally allowed a fourth goal to the hosts.

Trevor Moore beat Allen for his second goal of the game.

Final score: 4-0 Kings.

Martin St-Louis’ team will have three days off before returning to action on Wednesday in Columbus.

Now it’s time for the rookie dinner…

In gusto

– We’re a quarter of the way through the season and Josh Anderson still has no goals.

– The Lions are doing well.

– A major addition to Shawinigan.

– This is perfect. I’m taking him on in Fantasy Football.
