Pierre Gauthier often gets a bad rap amongst Montreal media and fans.
And why shouldn’t he? He is at the helm of the worst team in the Eastern Conference and his cold, professorial demeanour is most off-putting. His whole treatment of the Jacques Martin firing and Randy Cunneyworth hiring leaves much to be desired as well.
But, when one looks behind the frigid facade...
MONTREAL (March 14, 2012) – The Montreal Canadiens announced today that defenseman Frédéric St-Denis has been recalled from the AHL Hamilton Bulldogs.
The 26-year old defenseman recorded 28 points (3 goals and 25 assists) in 52 games with the Bulldogs thus far this season. St-Denis scored two of his goals on the powerplay and added 101 shots on goal.
Assigned to the Bulldogs...
Morning puck fans!
I will be brief in my commentary this A.M. In fact, I will just pose one quick question.
Weren't you all terrified when Andrei Markov dropped to the ice after getting a puck to the face?
I was. I was thinking 'oh no, not again'
Thankfully, he was alright and returned to the game. Hopefully, that good fortune can continue for the duration...
Erik Cole scored a goal on Wednesday night for the Ottowa Senators and couldn’t find any of his teammates to celebrate with. So what did Cole do? He found an outstretched arm of an 18-year veteran official Greg Kimmerly and gave him a high five. Pretty hilarious and you can only imagine what the ref was thinking after it happened.
“He was the only one there, and I had...
I can confidently say that I’ve never seen this happen before, but it was certainly entertaining. In the Canadiens/Senators game tonight, Erik Cole scored the first goal of the game on Sens backup goalie Ben Bishop and then proceeded to high-five referee Greg Kimmerly. It didn’t seem like Kimmerly was exactly planning for the high-five, more like signaling that it was a good...
David Desharnais scored in regulation and in a shootout, lifting the Montreal Canadiens to a 3-2 win over the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday night.
Desharnais had the only goal in the shootout, and Canadiens goalie Carey Price stopped all three Ottawa attempts.
Erik Cole also scored for Montreal (28-32-11), 3-0-1 in its last four games. The Canadiens are 3-0-1 against the Senators...
Erik Cole is one of the fastest skaters in the NHL and he showed off that speed on Wednesday as he flew down the ice to bang a goal home. He was so fast down the ice there wasn't anyone there to celebrate his goal with right away so he did the next best thing: high-five the ref.
I love it!
Morning Hab addicts!
As much as many fans want the Canadiens to perform poorly in hopes of obtaining a high draft pick, it is clearly not in these Habs to intentionally tank.
The way Desharnais and company celebrated after tying the game with less than three seconds remaining, you would think they were playing for spoils - not the role of spoiler.
Good on them.
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...
I don't know if this is common practice in Montreal, but it happened Wednesday night with Erik Cole and this lucky official. I have to assume it is though, as it is on video, and BMR French Canadian expert Loser Domi is on vacation
Currently seventh in the Eastern Conference, the Ottawa Senators have held their own against most teams in the league.
The Montreal Canadiens, however, have surprisingly had their number.
Ottawa tries to avoid a fourth loss in five meetings with Montreal this season as the teams conclude a home-and-home set Friday night at Scotiabank Place.
While most teams in the Senators'...
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...
A Tuesday afternoon meeting is scheduled with Myers and Shanahan for this hit on Scott Gomez last night.
Myers received 2 for boarding on the play.
As of 6:30pm EDT, Brendan Shanahan has yet to pass down his verdict on whether of not Tyler Myers will be suspended for his hit from behind on Scott Gomez.
Myers had his phone hearing with Shanahan at 1pm EDT on Tuesday.
The question now is whether Myers intended to hit his opponent from behind.
Today, after practice, Lindy ruff defended Myers by saying that he felt like...
