Carey Price repeatedly smashing his stick on the crossbar in frustration perfectly summarized Montreal's current battles.

The Canadiens lost their sixth straight video game in a mistake-filled 6-4 defeat to the New Jersey Devils on Thursday night.

Rate broke his stick after New Jersey's fifth goal-- Damon Severson's video game winner in the third duration.

"We understand how excellent he is, it's not his fault," said Brendan Gallagher of Price. "That's on us. We make the mistakes. You can't give up these high-danger opportunities.

"Too numerous chances versus. Till we remedy it, we're going to continue having this sensation."

Montreal's present six-game winless streak (0-4-2) started Nov. 16 with an overtime loss to the Devils at Bell Centre. Claude Julien's men have actually conceded a minimum of 4 objectives in 5 of those six video games.

Four of New Jersey's goals came off odd-man rushes or breakaways.

"They were aggressive, they were pinching," stated Devils star forward Taylor Hall. "With their game recently, they were going to be a little overzealous to get in and pinch. If you can beat that fore-check, that pressure, there are going to be odd-man rushes."

WATCH "We understand how excellent he is, it's not his fault," said Brendan Gallagher of Price. The Canadiens goalie offered up five objectives on 34 shots."If I'm being sincere, I don't feel for Carey Price since he's the finest goaltender in the world," stated former colleague P.K. Subban. Artturi Lehkonen got one back for Montreal 16 seconds after Severson's goal but that's as close as the Canadiens would get."We practically got 50 shots on net, we scored four objectives.
