The Canadian has played 10 of its last 13 meetings in hostile territory. During this sequence, he presented a record of 2-7-0 abroad and 2-2-0 in front of his supporters.

Players from Canada have quickly turned the page on the thawed collected in the face of the Ducks of Anaheim, which has led to their slipping out of the portrait series in the Association.

The Canadian has returned from his California trip with a record of 1-2-0 and in ninth place in the East for the first time since the 11 January. After beating the Los Angeles Kings 3-1, he cashed out of the defeats of 5-2 in the face of the San Jose Sharks and 8-2 in the face of the Ducks.

Despite the defeat to San Jose, the Habs had offered a good performance, being rather a victim of a evening difficult of goalkeeper Antti Niemi. However, the team has seemed to crumble in the face of the Ducks.

“I think we were tired mentally in the last match and we didn’t overcome it,” said head coach Claude Julien. It is necessary to become more strong mentally to handle situations like that experienced in the last game.

“We didn’t have a schedule easy in the last few weeks. We have travelled a lot, played a lot of games abroad. But it is in these moments that you must learn in order to better manage the next time. “

The Canadian has played 10 of its last 13 meetings in hostile territory. During this sequence, he presented a record of 2-7-0 abroad and 2-2-0 in front of his supporters.

“I don’t think it serves anything to think constantly [in the defeat against the Ducks],” said defender Jeff Petry. This is only going to affect our preparation for the next game. We all know that it was a counter-performance, a game in which we are not proud of. We still have 13 games and we need to look ahead while focusing on one game at a time. “

The Blue Jackets of Columbus were ahead of the Habs to eighth in the standings following their victory of 4-1 defeat to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday.

The Canadian and the Blue Jackets had 79 points in the standings prior to the meetings Monday. The formation of the Ohio, however, had the advantage in the rankings because she had played a game less since the beginning of the campaign. The Blue Jackets visit the New York Islanders on Monday night.
