Habs vs. ‘Canes

Habs vs. ‘Canes

Following some abysmal play of late, the Habs will look to get back on track tonight at home against the Hurricanes. A game against Carolina can be just what the doctor ordered. The Hurricanes have not made the playoffs since the 2009-2010 campaign and have often found themselves at the bottom of the NHL standings. […]

Who Stays, Who Goes, You Decide

Who Stays, Who Goes, You Decide

Alas, another great season has come to an end. Premature yes, but it was a great season and the future looks bright for Montreal. Now the real work starts for Bergevin and CO. Marc Bergevin’s moves in his first season as the Canadiens GM earned him respect amongst many Habs fans. Now he must do […]

Disgusted; Canadiens 2 Caps 3

Disgusted; Canadiens 2 Caps 3

Embarrassing. Totally embarrassing. The officiating tonight was downright sickening. This is professional hockey? This is a multi-billion dollar industry?? Ridiculous. If anyone knows a way to reach the NHL or NHLPA please leave a comment because something needs to be done about this.   Alright rant over. First game without Emelin and it doesn’t look […]

Budaj Up to Task; Canadiens 4 Jets 1

Budaj Up to Task; Canadiens 4 Jets 1

The gift that is Marc Bergevin keeps on giving. Michael Ryder got 2 goals and one assist. P.K. Subban is making a strong push for the Norris trophy. Peter Budaj is now 6-1-1, giving up only one goal on 34 shots. The Canadiens were up to task even without Tomas Plekanec. Alex Galchenyuk stepped up […]

Congratulations Saku Koivu

Congratulations Saku Koivu

Last night with 4 seconds left in the Stars-Ducks game, Saku Koivu shoveled the puck up to Andrew Cogliano who put the puck into an empty net. That was Koivu’s 24th point this year, and his 800th career point. Saku’s career started in 1995 with the Canadiens and got 45 points in his rookie year. […]

Canadiens Win Streak At 3; Canadiens 4 Hurricanes 1

Canadiens Win Streak At 3; Canadiens 4 Hurricanes 1

Once again, Price ├ętait superbe. The only thing keeping him from a shutout was Emelin running into him. Jeff Halpern got his first of the year and Subban got his 17th point in 11 games, assisting on Markov’s powerplay goal. Pacioretty finally scored on a play where Peters just seemed to give up. He added […]

Habs Silence Rangers; Habs 3 Rangers 0

Habs Silence Rangers; Habs 3 Rangers 0

The Canadiens roll on with a critical win over the Rangers. With the Bruins losing earlier today to the Flyers it was critical to come out and beat the Rangers, and that they did. Carey Price looked great in a 34 shot shutout and P.K. Subban had helpers on all three goals. Ryder got the […]

Huge Win; Canadiens 6 Bs 5

Huge Win; Canadiens 6 Bs 5

Oh. My. God. After dominating the first period, and opening a 2-0 lead early in the 2nd period I thought it would be smooth sailing. How wrong I was. Fatigued from last nights game, Markov just didn’t have the legs to defend against a strong, young, fast Bruins offense. Carey Price didn’t help the cause […]

Habs Get Blanked; Penguins 1 Habs 0

Despite out playing and out shooting the Pengiuns 37-25, the Habs couldn’t get anything past Fluery and Vokoun. Marc Andre Fluery left after a collision in the second period, but Vokoun was up to task. Carey Price stopped everything except a gorgeous shot from Crosby caused by Tinordi being out of position. The Habs cause […]
