The Habs were off Sunday before being back at practice Monday at 11 am in Brossard. They will then charter to Pittsburgh, who they play on Tuesday. Following that, they will head over to Boston for the back half of the back-to-back. How did the Habs get so ‘lucky’ of playing these two teams on a situation like this for the second time this season? Thanks NHL.

Montreal will need to bounce back from their disappointing loss against the Sabres from Saturday. It was not a lack of effort or anything, they arguably should have defeated Buffalo, but were unable to solve Miller enough to win the game.

Former Hamilton Bulldogs coach Guy Boucher has been let go by the Lightning. Many wanted Boucher to become the next Montreal Canadiens coach but Yzerman scooped Boucher for Tampa Bay. Boucher never really had the best team to work with down south. Goaltending and defence was constantly an issue and still is. It will be interesting to see where he ends up.

It looks like Habs prospect Alexander Avtsin has not played for Wheeling yet after being reassigned to the ECHL. Personally, I believe the situation with this player was not handled properly right from when he came over from Russia. He does have the tools to produce more, but never really found his game with the Bulldogs for various reasons.

It was the NHL stars against the Habs alumni Sunday afternoon in Montreal. The NHL side prevailed with an 8-5 victory. We even saw a mid-game trade that had Bergevin heading to the Canadiens for Chelios. No one was outraging about that, unlike the Cammalleri deal that occurred under Gauthier.

According to Lefrancois, Jeff Halpern skated with Brandon Prust and Yannick Weber Sunday morning.

Prospect Update:

  • Bennett was a -1 in his team’s loss, his season is over
  • Corbin had 2PIM
  • Fortier remained even against Cincinnati
  • Leveille had a -1 rating
