Following a tough shootout loss at home last night, the Canadiens welcome (begrudgingly) the New York Rangers to town who are fresh off of a 3-0 victory against the Maple Leafs. Marty Biron started in net (and played fantastically), which will leave the Habs to face Lundqvist. I guess Torterella wasn’t about to start Biron in Montreal after the 4-0 victory Montreal scored earlier in the season.
For Montreal fans it will be the first opportunity to see Rene Bourque in a Habs jersey. The trade that sent Michael Cammalleri back to Calgary has been a controversial one.
From an emotional stand point, if you asked me who I would rather have on the roster – Gomez, Gionta or Cammalleri – I would have picked Cammy in a heart-beat. A roster that is without Cammalleri and with Gomez is certainly not what I would call improved. Despite Cammalleri’s struggles to score this season, he has the potential to make a huge impact on a team that lacks any top line offensive talent. The team also sent th...

Montreal Canadiens General Manager, Pierre Gauthier, started a serious retooling of his team last night in earnest.
His first salvo, in what is sure to see more fireworks to come, was to ship disgruntled forward, Michael Cammalleri, to Calgary with goaltending prospect Karri Rammo and a 5th round pick in this year's draft.
In return, the Habs get for Rene Bourque, a second...
Another day, another headline for the Montreal Canadiens.

Cammalleri Trade Highlights "Outside the Box" Season
In a day and age when value for dollar performance means much more to a teams success, the Montreal Canadiens could be forgiven for thinking that they simply weren't getting enough out of Michael Cammalleri for the $6 million he was making per season.
True, he had fast become a hero with his splendid playoff...
I tried. I tried my best to keep my attention on the Winnipeg Jets/San Jose Sharks game last night. As per usual, I was taking notes on my laptop, and as per usual I had Twitter open on my laptop as well. Suddenly I see that Mike Cammalleri has been pulled from the Montreal Canadiens/Boston Bruins game; it occurs to me that the Habs/Bruins tilt is on TSN, so I flipped over to see...

It’s amazing how quickly things can change.
During the first period of the Flames’ – Ducks’ game, I heard news that Mike Cammalleri had been pulled from Montreal’s game against Boston.
Immediately I knew he was traded; the question was where. Numerous sources stated ‘Florida’, ‘Pittsburgh’...
As the Boston Bruins were putting the finishing touches on yet another loss for the lowly 2011-12 Montreal Canadiens, GM Pierre Gauthier was finalizing the trade of left winger Michael Cammalleri.
When all was said and done, Gauthier shipped Cammalleri, Karri Ramo and a fifth round pick to the Calgary Flames in exchange for Rene Bourque, prospect Patrick Holland and a second round...
Welcome back, Mike Cammalleri. The Flames needed you!
Let the fan flags fly as we bid farewell to René Bourque in exchange for Montreal Canadiens, and former-Flame’ Mike Cammalleri, goaltender Karri Ramo and a fifth-round draft pick in the 2012 draft.
This all in exchange for the struggling number 17, last year’s fifth-round draft pick Patrick Holland and a second-round...
The Canadiens made another move in their chaotic season by trading forward Mike Cammalleri to Calgary in the middle of a game in Boston Thursday night.
The Canadiens were justified in trading Mike Cammalleri, but Stu Hackel says how they did it and his unflattering public remarks were yet another dark mark on the proud franchise.
Mike Richards had a goal and an assist for the Kings, who spoiled Mike Cammalleri's anticipated return to the Flames with a 4-1 victory over Calgary on Saturday night.

No. 1 Star: Evgeni Malkin, Pittsburgh Penguins
For all the reasons we listed earlier, Malkin's 5-point game — including a natural hat trick — in the Penguins' 6-3 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning was the performance of the day.

The Ducks continue their post-"GM says everyone must go!" run with a 4-2 win at the Vancouver...
