Poor Andrei Markov. Before Saturday night's start in Vancouver, the former NHL All Star D had missed 140 games due to a jacked up ACL. In his second game back to the lineup, Tyler Ennis toe-dragged him Sabres infamy. Ennis has the hands of a jewel thief and he used them to perform larcent against Markov and Budaj. The goal had double meaning for the Sabtres as it tied teh game at one,...

Pacioretty putting 'The Hit' behind him

Back in September, Max Pacioretty said he wanted to be known for his play, not 'The Hit.' Mission accomplished. Pacioretty has been one of the few bright spots in an otherwise dismal season for the Canadiens. His 30 goals and 56 points lead the team, with several weeks to add before season's end. "Thirty goals is exciting," he told reporters after reaching...

Patrick Roy Among Top Candidates to Join Montreal Canadiens

It goes without saying that the Montreal Canadiens are likely to make changes to the team’s front office and behind the bench following the 2011-2012 season and names of potential replacements are beginning to surface. According to Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun, former Habs goalie Patrick Roy and current Chicago Blackhawks assistant general manager Marc Bergevin are among the...

Eric Engels: Two and a Half Men: Cole, Pacioretty and Desharnais

As expected, the Canadiens Masterton nominee this season is Max Pacioretty. The award is given to the player "who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to ice hockey". If coming back from a broken neck and severe concussion to score 30 goals doesn't fit the bill, I don't know what does (pardon the pun). As for sportsmanship...

Rene Bourque a bust in Montreal?

After struggling this season for the Calgary Flames, Rene Bourque was traded in January to the Montreal Canadiens. Coming the other way was Mike Cammalleri, who had equally lost his scoring touch. It was hoped that a change of scenery would benefit both players.So far, Bourque has gained no such benefit and has been a big disappointment in Montreal. Cammalleri has not exactly broken...

Habs tie it late, lose 3-2 to Sabres

Good thing David Desharnais played Monday night, because if it wasn’t for him, the Habs wouldn’t have been in this game. The usual storyline: Habs take lead, Habs blow lead, except in this one, they tied it with 3 seconds left, and then lost in overtime. I won’t even get into the game: what’s with the celebrating? One thing I always appreciated about Saku Koivu was his class...

Sabres 4, Senators 3, SO

Tyler Ennis scored in regulation and then added the winning goal in the shootout to give the Buffalo Sabres a 4-3 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday night. Nathan Gerbe and Marcus Foligno also scored for the Sabres (32-29-8), and Ryan Miller stopped 33 shots. Erik Karlsson scored twice, and Erik Condra had a goal for the Senators (36-26-8), who got 38 saves from Ben Bishop...

Canadiens 4, Canucks 1

There have been few bright spots this season for the Montreal Canadiens, but the return of veteran defenseman Andrei Markov certainly qualifies as a highlight. That it came in a 4-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night made it that much better. ''It was awesome,'' said Markov, the 33-year-old Russian, who fought back from two operations on his right...

GARTH: Enzo and Mysie Sink The Habs

Crowd noise wasn't a problem inside First Niagara Center on Monday night. Tyler Ennis scored two beauties, while Ryan Miller made 26 saves as the Sabres earned its season-best fifth consecutive home win. The Sabres (33-29-8) also improved to 9-2-2 in their past 13 games. Miller is 9-1-1 in his last 11 starts. Look out Winnipeg! The Sabres are now in ninth place in the Eastern Conf...

GARTH: Character Win In Kanata!

Credit the Buffalo Sabres for erasing three, one goal deficits against the Senators. Ryan Miller was sensational, and the newly formed Foligno-Ennis-Stafford line provided the primary and secondary scoring that the Sabres so desperately needed in this critical road game. Nathan Gerbe got Buffalo's party started and it tied the game at ones Tyler Ennis scores...

Kevin Freiheit: Sabres/Canadiens

This is the fifth meeting between the teams this season. So far, the Sabres have gone 3-0-1 against the Canadiens. Buffalo have finished each game with exactly three goals, but have kept Montreal at two or less three times. The Sabres are coming off of a shootout win in Ottawa after trailing three times during the game. Tyler Ennis finished off Ben Bishop in the Senators, giving...
