This is an ugly showing. The ugliest of the season, The ugliest under Michel Therrien. I'm not sure I've ever seen a team not named Buffalo get under 30% of the even strength shots, but that's the Habs tonight.

To make matters worse, Tampa Bay isn't even a good team. They've been riding a shooting percentage streak to a good record with terrible possession stats. And they're killing the Habs right now. Badly.

This game doesn't mean a ton in the grand scheme of things, but it's the kind of game that gets people fired. If the Habs are 9-9-1 after tonight, someone might be.
