Au Contraire, Canadiens Have Heart
March 21, 2009, by Homme De Sept-Iles
For all those who suggest Montreal lacks heart or effort this season it may be of interest to note the following:
The Canadiens are number three overall in the NHL in blocked shots at 1156 and number six overall for hits at 1704.
What is more indicative of why they are struggling to meet expectations is the following:
They are 14th on faceoffs (50.7). They are fourth-most for giveaways. (Ninth-most takeaways).
There are a lot more numbers to this story but I suggest going with the stereotypes is a mistake.
