So I wasn’t surprised how he answered my question after the Canadiens lost 6-3 to the Arizona Coyotes Tuesday night at the Bell Centre.

The Canadiens fell behind 5-1 before Cole Caufield scored twice in eight seconds late in the second period, putting them back in the game. The Canadiens kept fighting until an empty-netter in the third period sealed the win for the Coyotes.

In the previous two games, the Canadiens fought back from a 3-1 third-period deficit against the Seattle Kraken Saturday at the Bell Centre before losing 4-3 in a shootout and battled back from a 3-2 deficit in the third period Sunday in Philadelphia before beating the Flyers 4-3 in overtime.

The Canadiens’ transformation since Martin St. Louis took over as head coach from Dominique Ducharme has been remarkable. They were 8-30-7 under Ducharme and are 8-6-1 with St. Louis. They also don’t give up, like they did in Ducharme’s last game as head coach — an embarrassing 7-1 loss to the New Jersey Devils at the Bell Centre on Feb. 8.
