Drop the Gloves: February Edition

The Montreal Canadiens are a team that, in the past, would be knocked around with no consequences coming for the opponent afterwards. The mentality started to change towards the end of last year and came into full effect with the hiring of Marc Bergevin as the new general manager. He brought in character players (Armstrong, Bouillon and Prust) to help change the look of the Canadiens and add to the players that were already on the roster. In the month of February, Prust led the Habs in fights while Gallagher, Gorges and Moen also dropped the gloves to not only address the current game situation, like defending a teammate, but make a statement to the rest of the league that they were not going to back down against anyone, unlike Toronto’s Dion Phaneuf on the 27th.

The scraps for February:

1) February 2nd: Prust vs Ott (BUF)

2) February 9th: Prust vs Fraser (TOR)

3) February 9th: Gallagher vs Kostka (TOR)

4) February 9th: Gorges vs McLaren (TOR)

5) February 12th: Moen vs Crombeen (TBL)

6) February 21st: Prust vs Finley (NYI)

The Canadiens will not win every fight nor should fans expect them to. At best, we should appreciate the players who are willing to stand up for their teammates or themselves. Prust leads the Habs in penalty minutes and it is pretty obvious as to why. He has six fighting majors on the year so far and he shows no signs of slowing down. Perhaps it is time for someone else to start stepping up more so that he isn’t worn down by the end of the year. Looking at you Moen.
