The Canadiens could get discouraged by getting handed another loss on Thursday night, surrendering the final five goals of the game to see a 3-1 lead become a 6-3 loss. Or they could latch on to the fact that they played a solid opening 20 minutes, when everything Dominique Ducharme had instructed them to do before the game had a positive effect as they headed back to the locker room with a 2-0 lead.

It was surely an easy video session for the coaches to prepare the team to face the Jets again tonight. Replicate the first period, avoid what you did in the final 40 at all costs.

In terms of on-ice work, the Canadiens spent all of today’s practice working on the power play. Given that it has slipped from being in first place early in the season to now 18th, some work was necessary. We’ll see tonight if the effort will pay off so the man advantage can be a difference in the game.

By the sounds of things, they’ll be trying to get things turned about without Josh Anderson, who could miss his first start of the year. Expect Jake Evans to draw back in for a formation that looks more like what the team had ben running before the last game.
