Pro Sports Daily:
Montreal Canadiens defenseman Andrei Markov rejoined his teammates at practice Monday for the first time in more than a year.
Markov has been sidelined since suffering a right knee injury against the Carolina Hurricanes on Nov. 13, 2010.
He underwent major reconstructive surgery but has had a pair of setbacks in his recovery.
Montreal coach Jacques Martin offered no timetable as to when the 32-year-old Russian would be back in the lineup.
Markov, who signed a three-year, $17.25 million contract in June, has collected 81 goals and 285 assists in 623 career games.
BEST OF MAXIM
The Canadiens entered the third period on Monday with a 2-0 lead and, for lack of a better term, blew it. Montreal’s offence was missing in action for the third period, and their defence, hobbled by injuries to Jaroslav Spacek and Andreas Enqvist, wasn’t all that much better. Buffalo went on to win in a shootout, which left Carey Price without a save in shootouts thus far in...
The Montreal Canadiens seem to enjoy extra innings. Either that or they don't know how to close a team out.
For the third game in a row, Montreal went past regulation time, this time falling to the Sabres in a shootout.
Montreal was the better team for 40 minutes but, predictably, sat on their lead and tried to weather a third period onslaught by the Sabres.
Montreal Canadiens left wing Michael Cammalleri will return to the ice for Wednesday's game against the Carolina Hurricanes.
Cammalleri, 29, has missed two of the last three contests with a lower body injury.
Playing in his third campaign with the Canadiens, Cammalleri has collected three goals and four assists in 12 games this season.
On Your Mark, Get Set...
The young season is beginning to wear thin on a few Montreal Canadiens players.
Only 17 games into the 2011-12 campaign and the Canadiens have already gone without the services of Ryan White, Lars Eller, Chris Campoli, Andrei Markov, Andrei Kostitsyn, Jaroslav Spacek, Hal Gill, Michael Cammalleri and Scott Gomez, all for varying periods of time.
MONTREAL – Canadiens general manager Pierre Gauthier announced Wednesday the signing of forward Brendan G...
Carolina Hurricanes (6-9-3) at Montreal Canadiens (7-7-3)Bell Centre, 7 p.m.TV: TSN, RDS
This is one game I have been looking forward to all season because it marks the first time this year that the Hurricanes will face former teammate Erik Cole. I've said a lot about Cole this off-season and how I felt that Carolina can replace him because he wasn't much of a possession...
I’ve mentioned it a few times over the past few weeks, that the Habs defense corps has a problem that has to some extent, been camouflaged by injury early on in the season. The fact that Andrei Markov has yet to play a game in this season, and the fact that Chris Campoli was injured in the very first game of the year has forced Jacques Martin to scramble on defense. He has had...
1) Of all the people I spoke with last night, Brian Gionta was the only one to outright abstain from suggesting the team sat back in the third period.
"No, we didn't sit back. We just got away from our game a little bit and they came out strong."
There's some truth to that statement, but not enough to validate the 8-0 shot count from minute one to minute...
The Montreal Canadiens couldn't hang on to a two-goal lead in their last game. The Carolina Hurricanes came up short after being down by three.
Both clubs are looking for a full 60-minute effort.
Montreal goes for its third consecutive home win in this matchup Wednesday night while the Hurricanes try to end a five-game road losing streak.
Leading by two after former Hurricane...
MONTREAL - The Montreal Canadiens announced Tuesday that defenseman Frédéric St-Denis has been ...
Tonight is a pretty significant game – or at least as significant as the first quarter of the season can be. Carolina visits tonight offering a chance for both teams to make a move on a team near them in the standings. Montreal sits in 12th place in the East followed closely by the 13th place Hurricanes.
The word out of Montreal is that Hal Gill remains out of the lineup with the...

on Monday night.
In the midst of a five-game road losing streak, the Hurricanes head up north to Montreal and the Bell Centre, where they have had a great deal of success over the past few seasons.
