Canadiens linemates Erik Cole and Max Pacioretty both scored two goals, and Montreal snapped a four-game losing streak by beating the Tampa Bay Lightning 5-2 on Wednesday night. Lightning star Steven Stamkos didn't score, despite several good chances, and remained two goals short of 60. He'll play in his hometown of Toronto on Thursday night and has two games left to reach the mark. Cole scored twice in the second period, Pacioretty had a pair of goals in the third and Alexei Emelin also found the net for Montreal (30-35-15), the last-place team in the Eastern Conference. Vincent Lecavalier scored off a gift from Montreal backup goalie Peter Budaj, and defenseman Bruno Gervais added a goal for Tampa Bay (37-36-7), which has also been eliminated from playoff contention.

Habs goalie assists on easiest goal ever

Montreal Canadiens goaltender Peter Budaj must have been in a giving mood Wednesday as he donated to Vinny Lecavalier’s goal scoring fund. Lecavalier misplayed a pass from a teammate along the right wing and the puck slid into the Canadiens’ zone. Budaj skated out to the left face-off circle to play it and play it he did. He served the puck up on a silver platter like a waitress...

Canadiens G Price to be examined by team doctor

With only three games left in the regular season, the Montreal Canadiens are playing it safe with All-Star goalie Carey Price. Price will be examined Wednesday by team physician Dr. David Mulder to determine whether his headaches are a sign of something more serious. He'll miss Montreal's game against Tampa Bay that night and is doubtful for a game at Carolina on Thursday...

Lightning falter late, lose to Canadiens

MONTREAL (AP) -- Canadiens linemates Erik Cole and Max Pacioretty both scored two goals, and Montreal snapped a four-game losing streak by beating the Tampa Bay Lightning 5-2 on Wednesday night. Lightning star Steven Stamkos didn't score, despite several good chances, and remained two goals short of 60. He will play in his hometown of Toronto on Thursday night and has two games...

Habs goalie Price out with concussion

Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price has a mild concussion and will miss the rest of the season. The team made the announcement Wednesday after the 24-year-old All-Star was examined by the club's doctor. Price has been suffering from headaches since teammate David Desharnais landed on him during a 2-on-1 drill in practice late last week. He played the following night in a...

Concussion sidelines Canadiens G Price for season

Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price will miss the final few days of the season with a concussion. Price had been suffering headaches since he was landed upon by teammate David Desharnais during practice last week. He was, however, in uniform against the New York Rangers a day later. The 24-year-old Price is 26-28-11 with a .916 save percentage and 2.43 goals-against average...

Habs news as the team twists in the wind

One issue today: the Carey Price injury. My question: why is there so much controversy about this? Just shut him down. Not worth the risk. If he has a concussion, give him an early summer. Throw Robert Mayer in there and see what we got and, hey, we probably get a better draft pick. Don’t mess with Price’s head - literally - sit him, let him rest, and get ready for next year...

Peter Budaj's goaltending blunder

[youtube]N0jyZsYU0_g[/youtube] The Montreal Canadiens will not be in the 2011-12 playoffs. Carey Price is out with a minor concussion. As if Montreal fans weren't depressed enough, backup goaltender Peter Budaj added insult to injury.  In just his 15th start of the season, Budaj committed a huge blunder, wandering well out of his crease to handle a puck coming into his zone...

It's not like the teams from North of the border haven't had their shots at Lord Stanley's chalice. Canadian NHL teams have lost in the Stanley Cup Finals five times since 1993, with the...

Canadiens-Hurricanes Preview

Montreal (30-35-15) has not finished at the bottom of a conference since conferences were...
