Hamrlik ends Habs' goal scoring drought at 199 minutes one second

Publish date:

MONTREAL - The Montreal Canadiens goal-scoring drought ended when Roman Hamrlik scored 12:56 into the first period of a game against the Atlanta Thrashers on Tuesday night.

The Canadiens, who had been shut out in their three previous games, failed to score over 199 minutes one second of play.

It was their longest drought since 1928 when they went more than four games without a goal.

Hamrlik's goal seemed to open the floodgates. Only 11 seconds later, Mathieu Darche scored for Montreal.
