Suzuki reacts to Habs jersey tossed on ice: I can see why fans are angry
After yet another loss, fans in Montreal are starting to lose patience with the Canadiens.
Late in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Colorado Avalanche, a spectator tossed a Canadiens jersey onto the Bell Centre ice:
Nick Suzuki, one of Montreal's lone bright spots during a miserable season so far, touched on fans' frustrations postgame.
"Yeah, I saw it (the jersey). It's not a good feeling for the players," Suzuki said.
"It's tough. It's tough to get booed. But the fans want to see wins, and they're used to productive teams, and we're not doing that right now. I can definitely see why they're getting angry."
The Canadiens were outshot 34-20 Thursday and only managed 18 scoring chances to Colorado's 37, per Natural Stat Trick. The Avalanche were playing the second half of a back-to-back on the road after losing 8-3 to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday night.
With the loss, the Canadiens now own a 6-17-2 record and have the third-worst points percentage in the league. Suzuki is tied for the team lead in points (15) with Tyler Toffoli.
