Montreal Canadiens T-Shirts

Two teams coming off disappointing losses meet Wednesday www.officialcanadiensprostore.com , and both are trying to figure things out on special teams.The Montreal Canadiens can’t seem to score on the power play and suddenly the Colorado Avalanche are struggling to consistently kill penalties. Something has to give when the teams play at Pepsi Center in Denver on Wednesday night.Montreal (17-12-5) lost to Boston 4-0 on Monday night in a game right winger Brendan Gallagher called “one of the worst of my career” afterward. The Canadiens had won six of their previous eight games, they were rested but were outshot 35-22 by a Bruins team playing the second of back-to-back games.Article continues below ...Every team has off nights but Montreal has had a season-long struggle of scoring with the man advantage. The Canadiens haven’t had a power-play goal in their last 25 chances and have only scored 14 all season.“It’s just the little things,” Gallagher told Sportsnet after Monday’s loss. “We have to win puck battles. It’s not a strategic problem. It’s just work ethic, compete. We have to find a way to get the puck. We didn’t have enough control of the puck in the zone to put into practice anything that we’ve worked on or talked about. It’s as simple as that. It’s not strategic.”Colorado’s issues might be more strategic than anything. The Avalanche were one of the top penalty-killing teams in the first two months but have struggled lately. They have allowed at least one power-play goal in six of the last seven games, including two to the New York Islanders on Monday.Colorado (18-10-6) has gone 1-3-1 in its last five games and has allowed seven power-play goals in that stretch.“It looks to me like we’re just not as quick as we were earlier,” Avalanche head coach Jared Bednar said after Monday’s loss. “We had some problems with clears for a while but that wasn’t a problem tonight. They score on a flank shot. We’re not blocking enough shots; we’re not in the shooting lanes enough. That’s two of the last three that have come from the flank on one-timers. We’re taking too many penalties, too.”Coaches claim the goaltender is the team’s best penalty killer and the Avalanche haven’t gotten that from No. 1 stopper Semyon Varlamov. He has allowed 21 goals in his last five starts and was pulled from two of those games.His goals-against average over the last five games is 5.32, but he won’t get the chance to improve on that Wednesday. Philipp Grubauer will start in net against Montreal.Colorado is also expected to get back forward Alexander Kerfoot after a four-game absence with an upper-body injury.“It looks like he should be good to play Montreal Canadiens T-Shirts Authentic ,” Bednar told hockeybuzz.com after Tuesday’s practice. “I just have to get confirmation (from the medical staff) that he’s in for sure.”The Canadiens made a roster move ahead of their six-game road trip with the recall of 20-year-old defenseman Victor Mete. Mete played 23 games before being sent to the AHL to build his confidence after some struggles.Montreal sent Noah Juulsen down to make room for Mete. DETROIT (AP) Montreal coach Claude Julien acknowledged the Canadiens can benefit by losing, increasing their chances in the NHL draft lottery.Julien, though, insisted coaches and players are wired to win and refuse to compete with any other goal in mind.Nicolas Deslauriers‘ second goal put Montreal ahead late in the second period and they held on to beat the Detroit Red Wings 4-3 on Thursday night.The Original Six teams are out of the playoff race, finishing up the season playing only for pride.”Both teams want to win. It’s engrained in us,” Julien said. ”I’ve been told – I can honestly tell you – to try to win every game we can.”Antti Niemi had 23 saves for the Canadiens, started in place of struggling star Carey Price.Detroit’s Jared Coreau stopped 24 shots, giving Jimmy Howard the night off.Montreal took advantage of the Red Wings turning the puck over Montreal Canadiens Hoodies Authentic , including early in the third period when Artturi Lehkonen scored to create a two-goal cushion.”We’re always trying to force turnovers and play a fastbreak game,” Lehkonen said. ”We got some opportunities and we did a good job finishing them.”Darren Helm scored less than a minute later to pull Detroit within a goal, but it couldn’t’ score again to extend the game.Montreal had won just two of its previous 10 games and will miss the playoffs for the second time in three years.”I’m not used to losing. I don’t like to lose,” Julien said. ”But at the same time, I have to be objective and look at the situation and there were some challenges along the way that we didn’t expect, a number of injuries, and players having to move up in the lineup in areas they weren’t quite ready for.”The Red Wings have lost two straight and 15 of their last 19 games. They will be relegated to watching the postseason for a second consecutive season after earning a spot in the playoffs 25 straight times.”We’ve found ways to lose too many times this year,” Detroit defenseman Jonathan Ericsson said. ”We lost a lot of one-goal games after leading games in the third. And Montreal Canadiens Hats Authentic , it’s just not acceptable that we didn’t close out more games.”The storied franchises hope they’re fortunate enough to get the No. 1 pick overall to likely draft Swedish defenseman Rasmus Dahlin.Detroit wants to rebuild around Dylan Larkin, who split two Canadiens on a rush and beat Niemi with a backhander late in the first to make it 1-all after Deslauriers had his first goal early in the game.”Dylan continues to build his game,” Detroit coach Jeff Blashill said. ”That goal, I think, is a good sign for us.”Tyler Bertuzzi put the Red Wings ahead early in the second, but they lost the lead as they have many times this season.Brendan Gallagher pulled the Canadiens into a tie midway through the second period and Deslauriers’ 10th put them ahead with 5:21 left in the period.”It’s been a tough year so this was a nice bonus at the end of the year,” Deslauriers said.NOTES: Montreal D Jeff Petry was cheered on by at least one fan in the stands. His father, Dan Petry Custom Montreal Canadiens Jerseys , an 18-game winner for the 1984 World Series champion Detroit Tigers, attended the game. … Coreau, who has spent much of the season in the AHL, is 0-5 with the Red Wings this season. … Gallagher has a team-high 31 goals, a double-digit lead over the rest of his teammates and seven more goals than he scored in any of his previous five seasons. … Larkin has a five-game points streak.UP NEXTCanadiens: Wrap up the season Saturday night at Toronto.Red Wings: End the season at home against the New York Islanders on Saturday night.—
