Jaroslav Halak's agent Allan Walsh seems to have created a bit of controversy in Montreal with regards to a comment he made on Twitter after the Canadiens' 3-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday night.

Walsh tweeted the following on Saturday night:  “Interesting stat of the night....Price is 10W, 32L in last 42 starts. Hmm.”

The tweet caused an uproar with fans of the Canadiens and members of the media.

After receiving questions about the tweet, Walsh eventually posted the following as a response: “It was a tongue in cheek comment not meant to be taken seriously, forgot it was Montreal and everyone loses a sense of humor.

Whether the tweet was a joke or not, it can't do anything to help a Canadiens team that has struggled with inconsistency and are currently in 11th place in the Eastern Conference with an 8-9 record.

While Walsh's client Halak has a 5-2 record this season in comparison to Price's 3-7 record, it should be noted that while Price has a higher goals against average – 3.30 in comparison to Halak's 2.85 - he sports a slightly better save percentage – 0.894 to 0.893 – than Halak.
