This is a big one. The key(s) to victory are very simple. Two words: Carey Price. This is simply the game where the Canadiens need Price to show up. He was there in game 2. They need him there again, and more. It's Carey's time to shine.  However, there are other factors at play that will have an effect for the Canadiens. Jeff Halpern is in for Brian Gionta, probably a good move as Gionta was ineffective with his apparent bicep injury, and Halpern was very, very good in game 2. As well, Gabriel Dumont slides back in for Ryan White. Gameplan? The Habs need to stick to scoring, and shy away from the fisticuffs. Eric Gryba is back in for Ottawa - Montreal must simply treat him as any other player. Leave retribution for next year. This is not the time. Treat this game the same way they did the past couple of regular season games against Boston. Ignore the aggression, focus on beating the Senators where it counts: on the scoreboard.  90 minutes to puck drop, folks. Enjoy.

No supplemental discipline for Montreal Canadiens or Ottawa Senators after brawl

The only person missing from the Ottawa Senators thrashing of the Montreal Canadiens was WWE chairman/mouthpiece Vince McMahon.

Eric Engels: Heartbreak in Game Four, Prust and Price Down

The iconic image of this series may very well be Brandon Prust keeled over on his only shift in overtime, clutching his abdomen in pain. A true gut-shot. He felt it. The Habs felt it. Canadiens fans are feeling it. After four games, the Canadiens trail the Senators 3-1, having outplayed their pesky opponents in three contests. The Canadiens have been decimated...

Ottawa smiles while Montreal seeths

Perhaps one day, I'll go into detail on my frustrations with the refereeing of game four of the Canadiens-Senators series last night. Perhaps one day I'll delve into detail on the botched icings, faceoffs, and goal rulings. But not today. I just can't handle it today. But I will say this. I'm proud of the Canadiens, who bounced back from a mess of a game 3 and battled...

Senators-Canadiens Line Brawl Highlights Wild Third Period in Game 3 of Series (Video)

Canadiens-Senators, despite featuring two Canadian teams from the same difference, doesn’t have the same reputation as a rivalry as, say, Maple Leafs-Canadiens. That might change after Sunday night in Ottawa. The Sens and the Habs locked horns in a wild affair that the Sens ended up winning 6-1. The game unraveled quickly for Montreal midway through the third, and that’s when...

NHL Playoff Observations -- Tuesday

Just a few things that caught my eye: No offense to Peter Budaj, but Montreal has no hope without Carey Price between the pipes. He was terrific before he went down. #HabsDown. The Isles are like a bad rash -- they just won't go away. They haven't figured out they're supposed to lose to the Penguins. Andrew MacDonald will be hard to replace, though...

Several Canadiens-Senators Players get Into Fight During Playoff Game (Video)

If you ask me, hockey fights are a pointless endeavor, a lot of the times they’re forced and not that entertaining. But, it’s a part of the culture and probably won’t stop anytime soon, so why fight it? (no pun intended). During Game 3 of the first-round match between the Montreal Canadiens and the Ottawa Senators in the NHL Playoffs, a brawl broke out on the ice and every...

Chris Neil elbows P.K. Subban and he embellishes yet again

I thought this was funny, even the announcers think that P.K. Subban embellished in an attempt to get the a call from the referee. I also think this is why some people don't like Subban and his antics. I have said this a thousand times, he's an awesome talent, it's the other crap that takes away from his game. I will give him a 4.5 on that one. If Chris Neil really wanted...
