It was a rough week for the Montreal Canadiens as they went on their annual south-west road trip and came away with only two points. Besides beating the Anaheim Ducks 4-3 in a shootout, the Habs came up empty handed against the LA Kings, Phoenix Coyotes and San Jose Sharks.
“We played two good games,” Head Coach Michel Therrien said after the game against San Jose. “The longer the trip went on, the more I felt fatigue started to take its toll on our team.”
The road trip opened when the Habs travelled to Los Angeles to face the 2012 champions. It was a tight game, with the teams combining for only 13 shots in the first 30 minutes. PK Subban tied the score 1-1 in the second, but a late goal from Jeff Carter gave the Kings the 2-1 win.
