P.K. Subban says there’s no worse feeling than sitting in the penalty box when the opposition scores the winning goal.
That was the situation Tuesday night in overtime when Subban had a front-row seat as Steve Ott banged home a rebound to give the Buffalo Sabres a 3-2 win over the Canadiens at the Bell Centre.

Saskatoon Blades blueliner Darren Dietz signs three year Entry Level Deal
On March 17, 2013 Marc Bergevin signed dynamic hard working defenseman Darren Dietz from the Saskatoon Blades to a 3 year entry level contract. Dietz was drafted in the fifth round, 138th overall in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, and since then has...

The Montreal Canadiens have signed Francis Bouillon to a one year contract worth $1.5 million.

The Montreal Canadiens weren't entirely discouraged after their failed comeback bid, which would have extended their winning streak to their longest of the season. But they'll still have plenty to clean up after a crucial mistake proved costly.
To get back on track, Montreal will need a road victory Thursday night against the New York Islanders, a team they've had difficulties...
The Habs continue to truck along, having gained yet another point in yesterday's OT 3-2 loss to Buffalo. A few quick thoughts:
The Bouillon signing is a great move. Marc Bergevin is clearly a chemistry guy, and believes in the leadership present in the room. Bouillon is a big part. Well done, M. Bergevin.
Jarred Tinordi belongs. I was at Saturday's game against New...
One of the hottest NHL teams outside of Pittsburgh has been the surging Montreal Canadiens, who are getting solid contributions from seemingly everyone who puts on the sweater.
They're still not taking the disappointing Buffalo Sabres lightly, though.
Montreal looks to extend its winning streak while dealing Buffalo a sixth consecutive road loss Tuesday night in the first of...
