Found January 31, 2012 on Kukla's Korner:
It’s “Who Shot Mr. Burns?,” and they’ve been declared dead. Sure, they could be upgraded to alive at another hospital, a la Señor Burns - but this game was horrible. Pathetic effort. Pathetic. It was David Desharnais, Erik Cole, Max Pacioretty, and Carey Price versus the Buffalo Sabres. Where was Tomas Plekanec? Rene Bourque? Scott “4 days away from a goalless year” Gomez? This team needs to wake up. I suspect more roster players will be dealt. A disappointing game from a very, very disappointing team. Not a banner year for fans of the Habs, indeed.

Pierre McGuire A Great Match For GM Job In Montreal

from MitchMelnick.com, I’m not going to step aside over some supposed professional code. I sincerely believe that Pierre McGuire would do a terrific job as an NHL General Manager. And I think it’s about bloody time somebody in this town talked to him about the GM post of the Montreal Canadiens. I believe that Pierre is the best hockey analyst in the business. Almost too good...

Paul Gaustad Asks Max Pacioretty, Canadiens 'Where's Chara?' During Montreal-Buffalo Game

Max Pacioretty and the Canadiens no longer have a problem with just Zdeno Chara and the Bruins. They now have to worry about Paul Gaustad and the Sabres, too.

Goalies Carey Price and Brian Elliott enjoy the Breakaway Challenge

If you watched any of the NHL All Star Breakaway Challenge on Saturday night, it started off as an abortion. The contest winner was to be picked by fan voting and didn't even have to put the puck in the net. The first four or five tries were horrid. Some guys didn't even get a shot off they were so worried about being cute. But, once the shooters relaxed a little...

Buffalo Sabres (20-24-5) at Montreal Canadiens (19-21-9), 7:30 p.m. (ET)

The Sabres and Canadiens both won their final games before the All-Star break and the disappointing Northeast Division foes will try to keep heading in the right direction when they clash tonight at Montreal's Bell Centre.

Shocker: Habs blow a lead

This time, it was 3-1. And they lost 5-3. Sure, there were some awful calls by the referee, and the winning goal was very questionable due to a trip on Erik Cole that led to the play, but the Habs blew this one. Plain and simple. Perhaps that is part of the reason that Randy Cunneyworth appeared close to coming onto the ice after the Cole non-call. He was furious. Shaking. And...
