Robitaille Clears Waivers and Kovalev Bashes Carbs Between The Lines

It's official. Randy Robitaille cleared waivers at noon today and is now an Ottawa Senator.

And just in case you thought things would be smoother in Montreal this year, Alexei Kovalev ranted to the media last night after losing to the Panthers in a tight overtime game and TSN seems to believe that it might have been a backhanded rip at coach Guy Carbonneau.

"In the last two minutes, we knew they were going to put a lot of pressure
on us," Kovalev told the TEAM 990 in Montreal.

"It was just my idea that we could have taken a timeout, get organized and get the right people on the ice. Maybe it could have been better. That's what I saw from the bench."

The comment appears to be a criticism of Canadiens head coach Guy Carbonneau, who struggled through his first year behind the Montreal bench. With Tuesday's loss, the Canadiens have a record of 2-1-2 this season.
