Found March 14, 2013 on Razzball Hockey:
The Montreal Canadiens became the first Eastern Conference team to hit the 40-point mark with a 4-3 shootout win over the slumping Ottawa Senators. PK Subban, Lars Eller and Brendan Gallagher scored for Montreal. Mika Zibanejad, Patrick Wiercioch and Daniel Alfredsson all picked up goals for the Senators. SPIN: Robin Lehner stole a point for the Senators with his 42-save effort in the loss. We haven’t seen much out of Ben Bishop lately as he’s gotten one of the last four starts so Lehner looks to be the go-to guy while Craig Anderson recuperates. Ottawa has lost six of its last seven but picked up a couple points for going to overtime to avoid this stretch being a total disaster. Anderson’s ankle reportedly got sore again during a rehab workout so he’ll be a while longer before he comes back into the fold. Montreal shows its offensive balance as seven different players each had a point. Subban had two (goal, assist) and that balanced offense is a big reason why they are 18-5-4 this ...

Davey signs for four

I'm on the road today, so can't write much, but I will say this: David Desharnais for four years at $4 million per is a good deal. The lack of a no trade clause makes it a great one. This rewards a key piece of the Habs offence, while giving them the flexibility to deal the contract, if need be, down the road. Good move, M. Bergevin. The interesting question now is who...
