As the Canadiens enter what is to be their last full month of play, they have displayed some reasonably impressive hockey, posting a 4-2-1 record.
While it's unfortunate that the Canadiens recent play is no doubt too little too late, it is at least an indication that the Habs are in fact better than they've shown thus far.
Lack of Offensive Depth
So far, the Habs...
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...
The Habs eked out a point last night. That was solely due to the play of Carey Price, who kept the Senators at bay for 50-odd minutes before they tied the game and went on to win 2-1. The Habs were without Andrei Markov (it’s not the knee, it’s upper body, we swear…yeah, sure), Tomas Kaberle, and the regulars who have been out all season. I give Randy Cunneyworth credit, he...
Montreal Canadiens forward Erik Cole scored the first goal of Wednesday night's NHL game in Montreal against the Ottawa Senators. As Cole looked for someone to celebrate, the first person he came across was NHL referee Greg Kimmerly who had his hand up to signal that the goal was good. Naturally, Cole's instincts took over and he gave the ref a high-five.
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!
from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun, • Whoever takes over as GM of the Montreal Canadiens — assuming Pierre Gauthier’s reign is nearing an end — has the difficult task of signing RFA goalie Carey Price. He is making $3 million this season, but is going to be earning in the $5.5-million to $6-million range once the dust settles.
Price has the right to arbitration so he...
Ottawa's Erik Karlsson pins Montreal Canadien David Desharnais horizontally on the boards before gently placing him back on his skates. Yeah David Desharnais only weighs 177 pounds but,...

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'...
