WPG: O. Pavelec (L)
MTL: C. Price (W)
Yesterday afternoon in Montreal, the Habs took on the Jets in what was a must win game for the Habs. With under 2 minutes to go in the first, Pacioretty centred the puck and it went off of Pavelec and into the net to make it 1-0 Montreal. 8 minutes into the second, Plekanec brought the puck up shorthanded and played it to Emelin (on the left wing) and he one-timed a shot past Pavelec to make it 2-0 Habs lead. 4 minutes later with the Habs on a powerplay, Plekanec fired a shot from the slot and it beat Pavelec to make it 3-0. But the question was, did Gomez tip the puck in since he was standing in front. It took 10 minutes to announce, but it was credited to Plekanec. So Gomez's 52 game goalless drought continued.
With the win, the Habs are now in 14th in the East are they are 11 points back of the Leafs for 8th in the Eastern Conference with 29 games to go in the season. So if the Habs will have any hope of making the playoffs they will have to get on a win streak and fast."With a goalie like that, we know that if we get a few goals and we play the right way, if there's breakdowns, Carey will be there to make the save," Darche said. "But we can't give those chances. That's what's been so frustrating about the season; we know when we do it we'll be successful because we have the players to be successful and we don't always do it."
