As the one year anniversary approaches commemorating the last time that Scott Gomez scored a goal in the NHL, an overwhelming sense of emotion overcomes by body to think of that joyous occasion. To think, that it was just one year ago that he scored, man how time flies.
Enough of the sarcasm.
I am not going to sit here and tell you that everything is going well with this squad...
from MitchMelnick.com, I’m not going to step aside over some supposed professional code. I sincerely believe that Pierre McGuire would do a terrific job as an NHL General Manager. And I think it’s about bloody time somebody in this town talked to him about the GM post of the Montreal Canadiens.
I believe that Pierre is the best hockey analyst in the business. Almost too good...
Max Pacioretty and the Canadiens no longer have a problem with just Zdeno Chara and the Bruins. They now have to worry about Paul Gaustad and the Sabres, too. Gaustad ensured that he shot up the ranks on the long list of perceived Montreal villains on Tuesday night when he got into a verbal bout with the Canadiens bench. According to a number of Canadiens, Gaustad got into it with...
Any slim hope of making the post-season - and they were very slim to begin with - evaporated further as the Canadiens fell to the struggling Buffalo Sabres.
While the Habs managed to play a decent first period, even jumping to an early lead courtesy of Max Pacioretty, they offered mostly abysmal hockey for the final two periods.
As a result, the Sabres capitalized, scoring...
This time, it was 3-1. And they lost 5-3.
Sure, there were some awful calls by the referee, and the winning goal was very questionable due to a trip on Erik Cole that led to the play, but the Habs blew this one. Plain and simple. Perhaps that is part of the reason that Randy Cunneyworth appeared close to coming onto the ice after the Cole non-call. He was furious. Shaking. And...
Devils rebound after allowing first two goals of the game
Nicklas Backstrom still hasn't played since suffering a concussion from a cheap-shot elbow to the head from Rene Bourque on Jan. 3. Then a Calgary Flames forward and now with the Montreal Canadiens, Bourque served his five-game NHL suspension but is back in the lineup. He was back in time ...

P.K. Subban on Adam Larsson. No penalty and no update on Larsson.
Rookie defenseman Adam Larsson left the Devils' 5-3 win after a devastating hit from Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban during the third period.
The Sabres and Canadiens both won their final games before the All-Star break and the disappointing Northeast Division foes will try to keep heading in the right direction when they clash tonight at Montreal's Bell Centre.
