The 6th Sens:
Brandon Prust does not like Chris Neil.
So much so, that the former called out the latter in the wake of the Canadiens’ 5-1 loss to the Senators on Wednesday night.
Via the Ottawa Sun:
"I hope he gives me that fight in our building (Sunday)," said Prust.
Told of this Friday, Neil was quick with a comeback.
"What, fake dropping the gloves and sucking me into an extra two minutes?" he said of the unsportsmanlike minor he was given with the major. "That's why I got the extra two. We'll see how the game plays out and go from there."
Neil doesn't feel he owes Prust anything.
"I fight when it's right for my team," he said. "Obviously, I know what I have to do and what I don't. I've been around long enough. Obviously, whenever a guy fakes dropping the gloves, that's when I drop my gloves and grab him. I got an extra two for it, because I think he's going to go. He said ...
BEST OF MAXIM
When Montreal Canadiens' left wing Max Pacioretty had an emergency appendectomy, he was expected to miss 3-4 weeks. However, he was in the lineup on Sunday, just eight days after the operation. He did not score on Sunday, but has four assists for the season.
MONTREAL -- The Montreal Canadiens had scored at least four goals in each of their first five wins. Facing the hottest goalie in the NHL, they managed to claim their latest victory with only half as much offensive production. David Desharnais and Erik Cole scored first-period goals and Carey Price made 32 saves to lead Montreal to a 2-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Sunday...
Stephane Da Costa has been recalled by the Ottawa Senators.
For the second time in two seasons, it seems like Da Costa may be looked at as an internal candidate to fill that second line center role, after Regin failed to grasp it.
At practice today Zack Smith was elevated to the second line, with Regin demoted to the third. Da Costa was practicing between Condra and JOB...
A rough start to the season got a bit smoother for Lars Eller and David Desharnais on Saturday.
Eller had a goal and two assists and Desharnais scored a pair to lead the Montreal Canadiens to a 6-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres.
''We've been struggling a bit the last couple of games so I think it was relief for Davey, too, to see the puck go in twice,'' said Eller...
Rene Bourque and David Desharnais each scored twice to lead the Montreal Canadiens to a 6-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday.
Carey Price made 30 saves for the Canadiens for his fifth win of the season. Lars Eller added a goal and two assists, while rookie Brendan Gallagher also scored.
Ryan Miller stopped 17 shots over two periods for Buffalo before being replaced in the...
David Desharnais and Erik Cole scored first-period goals and the Montreal Canadiens held on for a 2-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Sunday.
The win completed a sweep of weekend matinees at home for Montreal (6-2-0) after a 6-1 win Saturday over the Buffalo Sabres. The Canadiens have won five straight at home after dropping their home opener to Toronto on Jan. 19.
MONTREAL -- The Montreal Canadiens were raring to go when they faced the Buffalo Sabres. Even so, it took them nearly one full period to break through against Ryan Miller, who couldn't hold them off on his own. Rene Bourque and David Desharnais scored twice and Lars Eller had a goal and two assists to lead the Canadiens to a 6-1 victory over the Sabres on Saturday. Rookie...
MONTREAL -- David Desharnais and Erik Cole scored first-period goals and Carey Price made 32 saves to lead the Montreal Canadiens to a 2-1 win over the Ottawa Senators on Sunday. Desharnais scored his third goal in two games on Montreal's first shot on Craig Anderson 2:13. Cole put the Canadiens ahead to stay with his second goal at 11:29. Jakob Silfverberg gave Ottawa a...
Nothing makes me happier, than watching Hab's tough guy Brandon Prust work the Sabres tough guy wanna be Steve Ott like a clown. I guess if Steve Ott wants to continue getting pounded on a regular basis, more power to him. Last season, Prust had 20 fighting majors playing for the New York Rangers. This season, Prust already has eclipsed the four fight mark in a little over two weeks.
Ottawa Senators coach Paul MacLean doesn't seem to be overly concerned about his team's faltering offense.
Perhaps returning home has given him some extra confidence.
The Senators go for their first season-opening five-game home point streak since the 2000-01 season when they renew their Northeast Division rivalry with the struggling Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night.
Montreal up 2-1 early in the 3rd period, then this happened...
Game ended 2-1 Montreal.

So Jason Spezza, Ottawa’s first line center and the league’s fourth leading league scorer last season, is out indefinitely with a herniated disc?
Ignoring the immediate kneejerk reaction, and ensuing panic that will flow, this news is a ‘we just traded Pavol Demitra for Christer Olsson’ kind of terrible that takes time to properly absorb.
The good news for Spezza...
