09:30 AM ET 01.26 | On home ice, the Montreal Canadiens were soundly beaten, embarrassed would be more appropriate, by the Washington Capitals, prompting a players-only meeting following the game, as per hockey reporter Renaud Lavoie. The Canadiens lost 5-0 to the Capitals, making it four straight losses and five in the last six games. In those five losses, they've been outscored 23-6. "We're playing with no emotion. We're not playing as a team," said Canadiens forward Travis Moen afterward.

PJ, or PK? Do you really think the interns would get last year's Norris Trophy winner's name right?

Title of one story in the DMN this morning was "Signs of relevance appear". They would be a lot more relevant had they not gone 1-8-1 to start 2014.

That will be their downfall this season. But - at least they played some defense which is more than I can say for the Habs last night.

Philly goalie (Mason) got yanked yesterday afternoon.

I watch NHLN every Sunday morning while drinking my coffee and catch up on the Saturday night proceedings. Seemed like about 5 consecutive highlight reels included goalie changes.

Keep the faith HC. Canada wins gold last time with average goaltending no reason to think we can't do it again

Canada should have enough offense to medal, even gold, but the goalies and that defense ain't gonna scare anybody.

Disagree with you Rex, as a group it will be the best defense at the tournament

They did play really well in their own zone, and Lehtonen covered up any mistake that the defense made.
