Max Pacioretty defended his coach after the Canadiens lost their fifth straight game on Tuesday night.

"He's been absolutely phenomenal during this (slump) and that's what makes it so hard," Pacioretty said about Michel Therrien. "I can't believe how well he's handled this and how positive he's been with us. And night after night we haven't been able to step up for him and that's frustrating because we all believe in this room. We're all on board. We all know that this is the way the game is supposed to be played." Montreal's top line didn't have a point in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to Boston despite 12 shots on goal, including four from Pacioretty. Unfortunately, the trio finished the game with a combined minus-9 rating. The Canadiens have gone 4-16-1 in their last 21 games and Therrien appears to be close to paying the price with his job.

Captain Max Pacioretty feels the Canadiens' "confidence just isn’t there."

Pacioretty made that remark after Montreal suffered its 10th loss in the span of 11 games. This stretch as squandered the Canadiens' superb start to the season as they've fallen out of first place in the Atlantic Division with a 20-14-3 record. Montreal has been missing elite goaltender Carey Price (lower body) and while the Canadiens' struggles can't be entirely blamed on his absence, his eventual return could serve as a spark. The problem is it's not clear when Price will be able to rejoin Montreal.
