NEW COACH, SAME OLD !#!@!!#!!


Jacques Martin bashers were dancing in the streets last night. At least up until around 9:45 p.m., when the siren went on a 5-3 loss to the New Jersey Devils at the Bell Centre.

Some 12 hours after General Manager Pierre Gauthier fired Martin, the Habs took to the ice with Randy Cunneyworth at the helm.  Cunneyworth was named interim head coach after Gauthier had determined that the results he was seeing on the ice were unacceptable.

Funny.  That’s a word I would use to describe last night’s effort, as well: unacceptable.  After Gauthier pointed a finger squarely at Martin and the team’s inability to hold a lead, the Canadiens promptly went out and blew another lead: this one, a 3-2 advantage that Montreal had built up through the opening 30 minutes of last night’s hockey game.
