Habs continue to fail in Carolina
After a few days off, the Canadiens were back in action tonight. For the occasion, it faced the Carolina Hurricanes, who had played the day before.

Here’s the Habs line-up:

And the home team’s:

The rust was felt early in the game.

It didn’t take long for the Canes to take a two-goal lead.

First, Andrei Svechnikov scored, beating Cayden Primeau. This was Primeau’s second consecutive game in front of goal.

Burns was next to shine. This time, he set up teammate Jesper Fast’s goal.

As was the case in Chicago, the fourth trio woke up the Habs.

Mitchell Stephens scored another goal, his second in as many games.

Carolina thought they had doubled their lead after that, but Martin St-Louis challenged.

Due to goaltender obstruction, the goal was overturned. The team administrator on X isn’t sure how goaltender obstruction works.

Still 2-1.

Before the end of the period, Montreal benefited from a power play.

With less than four seconds to go, Mike Matheson scored a beautiful goal to bring everyone back to square one.

On the sequence, Sean Monahan collected the 500th point of his career.

This is the third consecutive game that the St-Louis team has come from behind after trailing 0-2.

Early in the third period, however, the hosts regained the lead.

Fast scored his second goal of the game.

Early in the third period, Josh Anderson blocked a Brady Skjei shot.

He then broke away and beat Antti Raanta.

It was his fifth goal in as many games.

Towards the end of the game, Svechnikov also scored his second of the game.

Carolina regained the lead and this time kept it.

Final score: 5-3 Hurricanes, who sealed the game in an empty net.

Martin St-Louis’ team will be back in action on Saturday in Florida.

In a gust

– Juraj Slafkovky did not finish the game. He left late in the game because of this check:

– Primeau was sent in front of the net against a club in need of a goalie. Coincidence? I don’t think so. Did he convince Don Waddell? To be continued.

– Emil Heineman marked his return to the game in Laval with a goal. Laval still lost 4-1.

– It’s been a while.

– Well done.
