Samsonov regrets going to Montreal
“I’ve been blamed for everything that has gone wrong. Why stop now?” Sergei Samsonov said. “Obviously, looking back, I regret my decision (to sign with the Canadiens). All you can do is make things different and learn from your mistakes. Things could have been done and handled differently.”
The Canadiens may be just one point back of both Toronto and Carolina, who are tied for ninth in the playoff push, but having played one more game, it's going to be quite a hill to climb. Montreal needs to go at least 8-3-1 to get a sniff of that eighth position — an utter impossibility for a team that has won just six games since January (6-12-1).
