A journalist feels sorry for Samuel Montembeault

On Sunday night, against the Boston Bruins, Dominique Ducharme presented a lineup that was downright pitiful. Without "Jo" Drouin (again) and Mike Hoffman, the 3rd unit was much less of a threat with Jake Evans, Artturi Lehkonen and Joel Armia.

In front of the net, we found poor Samuel Montembeault, who was sent into the mouth of the bear, as Jean-Philippe Bertrand indicated. The host of "La Dose" is starting to feel sorry for him.

On Saturday, he allowed an unlucky goal to Dylan Larkin in overtime. On Sunday, Jeff Petry, trying to clear the slot, hit Charlie Coyle on the helmet and the disc went into the goal, becoming the winning goal. Another unlucky goal...

"Monty's non-verbal...he looks like a guy being sent to the slaughterhouse. Poor guy. He's doing what he can, the best he can, but he really doesn't have it easy. He's got a ton of pressure..." said Bertrand.

"JP" Bertrand is more than right, the young man is looking more and more pitiful, he may not be NHL caliber, but he has to do it by default. Marc Bergevin will have to find a solution to cover the front of his net because so far, there is nothing convincing.

Let's hope that Jake Allen did not suffer a concussion!
