Ryan While Lights up Kent Huskins; Will White be getting a ban from the NHL?

, Last night, the Habs Goon/forward Ryan White caught Flyers defenseman Kent Huskins in the head with this dirty check. You have to wonder if the NHL will be giving White a very long suspension? White was given a Match Penalty for this bushleague hit on Huskins. These are also the types of hits, that the NHL is trying to eliminate. Yesterday, the Flyers GM announced that Kent...

It’s Getting Messy In Montreal

from Mike Boone of Hockey Inside/Out, The Canadiens are a mess. A team that gave up 16 first-period goals in the first 40 games has been lit up for eight in the last three. The last time goaltenders were pulled in three consecutive starts was in October, 2001. Their names were José Theodore, Jeff Hackett and Mathieu Garon. Carey Price was supposed to have a night...

Panic in Montreal

Well, I'll give the city of Montreal this much: it took 42 games this year. Here we are, April 16th, and it's a full blown crisis. Carey Price has melted down. Peter Budaj is starting Wednesday night. The defence is in shambles. The team has given up. All is lost... ...or so many would have you believe. The reality: goalies slump all the time. Remember a guy named Pat Roy...

Canadiens 3, Lightning 2

Brian Gionta scored his second goal of the game with 47 seconds left in regulation and the Montreal Canadiens snapped a three-game skid with a 3-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday night. Gionta was at the left post to put a rebound off the end boards into an open side for the winner. Alex Galchenyuk also scored for the Canadiens, who had been outscored 18-8 in their...

Price Will Sit

from Sean Gordon of the Globe and Mail, If you strain your ears a little, you can probably hear it. The hysteria is mounting, because the Habs have been blown out twice in a row AND OH MY GOD CAREY PRICE CAN’T STOP THE PUCK.... Coach Michel Therrien’s response to the gathering storm: he’ll give backup Peter Budaj a start in net for a road game against conference...

Two dirty hits by Habs injure two Flyers

The Montreal Canadiens have been playing a more physical game all year under their new head coach Michel Therrien, but they took it to a new extreme against the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday night. It started with Canadiens forward Ryan White throwing what the referees deemed to be an elbow (replay shows that it was a shoulder) right to the jaw of Flyers defenseman Kent Huskins....

Lightning fall late on the road to Montreal

MONTREAL (AP) -- Brian Gionta scored his second goal of the game with 47 seconds left in the game and the Montreal Canadiens snapped a three-game skid with a 3-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday night. Gionta was at the left post to put a rebound off the end boards into an open side for the winner. Alex Galchenyuk also scored for the Canadiens, who had been outscored...

Eric Engels: Habs Defenses are Down

Well, it's pretty clear that there wasn't a one-game solution to the problems the Canadiens have been having of late. Most obvious point of concern is beyond their net, not that Carey Price and Peter Budaj have been reassuring, but what's going on in front of them with the defensemen is almost incomprehensible. The Habs ran through most of the regular season without...

Game 43: Penguins-Canadiens Recap

Carey Price is Kanyon. Ok. That’s unfair. But only somewhat. Price didn’t start for the Montreal Canadiens tonight against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Peter Budaj, the winner of his last six starts prior to tonight, started the game and performed like hot garbage. He gave up three goals on nine shots in the first period before…

Eric Engels: Philadelphia Flies by Montreal

Francis Bouillon stood in the room after last night's miserable performance against the Philadelphia Flyers and tried to boil it down to a lack of execution. Brendan Gallagher--Montreal's hardest working player in every game--was more accurate in suggesting the team didn't compete hard enough. When asked about the two hits the team had accumulated through two periods...

The Montreal Canadiens are in second. Seven points separate the two teams. The Pens could put some distance between themselves and their opponents with a win in...

smoking with cigarettes.

The Habs are like this terrible thorn in your side that never ever goes away. And then, of course, the thorned area gets infected. And then gangrenous. And they bring Carey Price with them, too.  He's so SAD. Not starting is a serious burn. He's gonna have to talk to mad jagerbombs to sort out this emotional tiff, you guys.  Also, lols to Root for having the...
