Bottom Six Minutes: Cayden Primeau deserved better

Photo by Chris Tanouye/ The Canadiens dropped their fourth straight pre-season game, through no fault of their goaltender. Still chasing their first win of the pre-season, the Montreal Canadiens took a short trip down the highway to face the Ottawa Senators on Saturday night.
