Canadiens don’t generate offense in Florida
After a loss in Carolina a few days ago, the Canadiens were back in action tonight in Florida.

Here is Martin St-Louis’ line-up:

And the one for visitors:

No goals were scored in the first half, but there was no shortage of action.

First, Michael Pezzetta threw down the gloves.

And late in the period, Ryan Lomberg slyly pushed Justin Barron into the net. Fortunately, the young defenseman got up and continued the game.

Juraj Slafkovsky came to his defense. He wins points (again).

In the second period, the scoring began. First, the Panthers opened the scoring.

Eetu Luostarinen, the scorer.

But Cole Caufield, on the power play, brought everyone back to square one with a beautiful goal.

His ninth of the season.

A little later, it was Florida’s turn to get on the power play.

The team thought they had taken advantage, but a challenge from Martin St-Louis brought the goal back.

After two periods, it was a complete tie.

Florida led 17-8 in shots on goal.

In the third period, Eeto Luostarinen put the Panthers back in front. This time, the goal was good.

And late in the period, Sam Bennett put the final nail in the Montreal coffin.

Final score: 4-1 Panthers, who added an insurance goal in an empty net.

Florida allowed only 19 shots on goal to the Tricolore. They played well defensively… The Canadiens simply lack offensive talent.

The team’s next game is tomorrow in Tampa Bay.


– Mike Matheson’s 500th game against his first NHL team.

– Yes.

– He doesn’t like his young teammate.

– Resubmit him to the waivers.
