Canadiens' winger losing respect
Mike Ribeiro's behavior in Game 3 against the Bruins will unquestionably hurt his credibility as a player.
Ribeiro, Montreal's leading scorer from the regular season, fell to the ice after a pileup of players going after a loose puck at center ice while Boston had an extra attacker out in an attempt to tie the game with less than a minute left in the third period.
Ribeiro lay on the ice of Montreal's Bell Centre while play continued for a few seconds. But after the Canadiens cleared their zone, officials stopped play with 33.7 seconds remaining because Ribeiro appeared to be in considerable pain, writhing on the ice and favoring his right arm.
