Happy Groundhog Day

From Kevin Gibson's Thursday Hockey Report:

"It's Ground Hog Day, the furry rodent came out of his hole, pulled his groin, scored three goals on Jose Theodore and went back to sleep."

The Habs have been getting blown out an awful lot lately, but at least they're infecting their opponents with their craptitude. Teams must be picking up a lot of bad habits in their cakewalks over les Canadiens.

On Jan. 21, after getting burned for 6 goals in the first 15 minutes of a 6-2 loss in Vancouver, the Canucks proceeded to lose 4-0 to the mighty Blues. They then lost 6-5 to the Bluejackets and 2-1 to the Wings.

On Jan. 26 the Habs directed only 12 shots at Dominik Hasek as they lost 3-0 to the Sens. Then Ottawa got smoked 5-0 by the Bruins, and lost 5-3 in the New Jersey swamp last night.

Finally, on Jan. 23, Carolina whipped Montreal 7-3. Then they reeled off three straight wins. But they couldn't slump yet because they would play the Habs again on the 31st - which was an 8-2 drubbing. Let's see if the infection takes this time...
