The Montreal Canadiens are experiencing a difficult season in some aspects of their game, particularly in the offensive production of their forwards, but also in the lack of support from their power play.

Again, in their last game against the Nashville Predators, Martin St-Louis' team scored only one goal from 37 shots on the opposing goalie. They lost the match 2 to 1.

Once again, the Tricolore's five-man attack was ineffective, achieving no success in five attempts.

What's worse is that the team not only disappointed in failing to capitalize on their one-man advantage opportunities, but they also lost momentum during these sequences.


"Tonight, I feel like we lost momentum because our power play didn't execute." - Martin St-Louis

The Canadiens' coach is forthright, and many observers have noted that he indirectly criticized his special teams coach, Alex Burrows, in public.

Unfortunately, since his appointment, Burrows has not improved this aspect of the game within the Montreal organization, and the impatience of fans is beginning to show, with speculation about his dismissal being on the table since the beginning of the year.

Is it time to replace Burrows with a more experienced coach to revitalize the special teams?
