Florida Panthers and Montreal Canadiens played an interesting match that attracted the attention of many. The reason for this is the huge score, 9-4 in favor of the Panthers. Panthers coach Paul Maurice himself could not believe how this match ended.
"I have never seen anything like that," -Paul Maurice said, as quoted by nhl.com "In 25 years, never seen that many goals. There were more goals than chances to score and that is a rarity. All I can say is it affected the game for both teams, and I do not think anything on video is useful to the game of hockey." Montreal coach Martin St.
Louis must be disappointed considering the play of his defense. St.Louis is probably still not aware of everything that happened. The defense really looked amateurish. "Defensively we, like, forgot everything," - Martin St. Louis said.
"Offensively, we had three goals after three shots, but you have to know how to defend. I know we know how to defend, but tonight we forgot everything. I don't know if it was a lack of effort. I'd say we weren't very smart on the ice defensively."
Rem Pitlick on Montembeault
Montreal forward Rem Pitlick reacted to his team's goalie; Montembeault.
Although the coach took him out of the game in one part of the game, he came back again and showed a great mentality. "I can't imagine mentally what he was going through," Montreal forward Rem Pitlick said talking about Montembeault.
"You're kind of off, goals go in, you're off the ice. And then as a goalie, you want to get your touches, I'm sure, and you're cold and you have to be flexible, all those different things. So, for him to kind of like bear that mentally and come back and play well and play strong, good for him. And I think that's a good sign of character."
