Once again, the Montreal Canadiens disappointed today with a 4-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

It was the same old story as Dominique Ducharme's men were undisciplined and allowed two more short-handed goals.
The Tricolore was also dominated in shots on goal by a score of 26-18. The power play at least managed to score a goal through Mike Hoffman, one of the only bright spots for Montreal.
After the game, goaltender Samuel Montembeault wasn't too happy with himself, saying that he didn't make the big saves.
"A goalie has to be able to make the key saves and I wasn't able," he mentioned referring to the goal conceded on a breakaway.
Yes Montembeault has allowed 8 goals in two starts so far, but can you really blame him? The Habs are giving away far too many gifts to their opponents, which makes the Habs goalie's job much harder.
It's also hard to blame goaltending when you look at the Tricolore's offensive statistics. Montreal is averaging 1.9 goals per game, the fourth worst in the Bettman League.
If the Habs want to start winning, they will have to create more scoring opportunities. The defense will have to cut down on the quality chances offered to the opponent.
It is a generalized problem that currently affects the Tricolore. It's certainly not a one-man show and Montembeault doesn't deserve to take all the blame.
