Vs New Jersey 4-1 loss Feb. 6, 2011

It was a night of lows as the Montreal Canadiens lost 4-1 to the visiting New Jersey Devils. The Habs set season lows in many categories, including overall team grade (52), offensive-zone puck-battles lost (98), and neutral-zone puck-battles lost (23).

Mathieu Darche's benching can be easily justified. The hard-working forward had little success in situations where he usually shines; he won only 2 of 10 total puck battles on his way to a season-low grade of 20. Rookie Lars Eller also underperformed. Number 81 won only 3 of 13 offensive-zone puck-battles, and finished the game with a personal season-low grade of 26.

Andrei Kostitsyn finished the game with the Habs top grade (68); some 7 percentage points above his season average. AK was particular strong on the forecheck and along the offensive wall, as he won 10 of 12 offensive-zone puck-battles. Among defensemen, Alexandre Picard had the top grade (63). Picard's grade was equal to his season average, and was the result of winning 9 defensive-zone puck-battles.

The Habs were particularly ugly in the neutral zone. The Devils controled mid-ice throughout most of the game. Montreal lost 23 of 35 neutral-zone puck battles, while adding 17 neutral-zone give-aways.
