Habs come up shorthanded in Anaheim

The Canadiens concluded their four game western road trip on a sour note after a 3-1 loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

In what was their third game in four nights, the Habs put up a dismal effort against a very strong Ducks team.

Todd Marchant scored 21 seconds into the game on a weird goal that bounced over the net and went off Carey Prices back. Chris Kunitz scored the game winner with 7 minutes left, and Sammy Pahlsson scored a shorthanded goal 40m seconds later to seal the win for the Ducks.

Alex Kovalev scored his 30th goal of the season, off a great pass by Mikhail Grabovski, who replaced Tomas Pleckanec who was out with the flu.

Carey Price made 34 saves and while his counterpart J-S Giguere made 20 saves for his 34th win of the season.

On a positive note, the Canadiens killed off 8 Ducks, powerplay opportunities, including a 5 on 3 in the second.
