It was a testy Jacques Martin following loss to Leafs

Canadiens head coach Jacques Martin had little patience for a reporter's question about his power play strategy following tonight's 5-4 overtime loss to the Leafs.

After opening his post-game news conference with an assessment of tonight's contest, Martin was asked about his decision to give Mathieu Darche ice time on the power play at the expense of someone like Erik Cole.  Martin responded by asking: "If you look at your stats last year, how many goals did Erik Cole score on the power play?"  

Silence.

Martin added that Mathieu Darce does a good job in front of the net, adding "that's the perogative of being the coach," and suggested that the reporter do more research.
