Found October 22, 2011 on Iced Out Hockey:

Hockey goalies often have vivid imagery on their masks, but Peter Budaj has just one-upped everyone else.

The Canadiens backup goalie has a picture of Simpsons‘ character Ned Flanders on the side. The design, created by Dave Gunnarson, revolves around wizardry.

It also has glow in the dark lightning bolts, of course.

Peter Budaj's means of channeling Ned Flanders

Kamal Panesar: Canadiens - Penguins: Depleted Pittsburgh Lineup Dismantles Reeling Habs

Wow, that was sad now wasn't it? At least for Habs fans it was. The same night Montreal welcomed sniper Michael Cammalleri back into the lineup, they put forth their most disorganized performance of the season. For a team whose claim to fame is that they play a five-man unit in all three zones, their "system" was nowhere to be found. Replacing the five-man...

Eric Engels: Habs Need Big Shovel to Dig out of this Rut

1) That was a farcical display by the Canadiens last night, but there's nothing funny about their start to this season. Between the coaching, the special teams, the inconsistency in nets, the injuries, the disappointment Erik Cole, P.K. Subban and Scott Gomez have provided thus far, the inexperience on the blue line and the team's losing to Toronto, Colorado and Calgary...

The early-season mess of the Montreal Canadiens

There's a newly created Facebook page titled "FIRE Jacques Martin." It features the Canadiens coach dressed as a McDonald's employee, above the declaration "time for a new coach of the Montreal Canadiens!!!!!" (The five exclamation points means they really mean it.) There was a time when Martin was being chatted up as an underrated coaching genius, and...

Panthers, Canadiens on NHL lines

Many didn’t expect the Montreal Canadiens (1-4-2) to be struggling this bad early in the season. They hope a visit from the Florida Panthers (4-3-0), whom the Canadiens have won three straight against, gives them a boost in the win column in NHL betting action on Monday night. Montreal will be home favorites at 5Dimes in this contest, but the Canadiens have...

Game 7: Habs/Leafs

Tonight’s game repesents a fork in the road for the Canadiens. While it is still far too early to pronounce the season in jeopardy, a win or loss will definitely produce the narrative for the short term. A loss will plunge the Habs into a full fledge slump to start the season. Giving away points in the early parts of the season can have critical implications at the end of the season...

Rivalry rollercoaster

MONTREAL – The Canadiens got the effort they were hoping for in Saturday night’s game – just not the result. The Habs’ weekend heartbreaker had the familiar feeling of their recent tilt against the Colorado Avalanche. Both...
