Jeff Petry had a lot to say at his post interview about the Habs recent performance.

"I think we need to put in the effort and make sure that we're supporting each other. There's so many times where we're skating away from the puck, we're leaving guys out to dry, we're not playing as a unit of five, and we're going to go nowhere playing like that,"

"We need everybody to have a better effort and to play a simple game, play a hard game. Right now, we haven't, and we're on the outside, we're not supporting each other. There's a lot of things we need to improve on..."

"The game is honest, and it was honest with us tonight," said Canadiens coach Dominique Ducharme, a clear indication that be believes the Canadiens got exactly what they deserved in the loss.


Brendan Gallagher also brought some good points

"You can probably, to a man in our locker room, do more,"

"How you handle these (problems) are kind of what defines your character," he continued. "We're going through a tough time right now—you want to be a team that you can count on your character in that locker room. Well, now's the time, but it's not going to be easy. A lot of people are going to turn on us and it's going to be important in that locker room that we don't. You work to find solutions, it's never easy to get out of these things. It's very disappointing that it's happening at the very beginning of the year, but this is when you're challenged. So, you want to test yourself? Test yourself in the toughest situations, and that's what we've got right now."
