Since the Montreal Canadiens hoisted the Stanley Cup for the 24th time in franchise history in 1993, the most prized trophy in sports hasn't been earned by a team from Canada since. 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 most recent being the Vancouver Canucks falling to the Boston Bruins in seven games last season. This trend has been picked up on by Vashi Nedomansky, a film editor in Santa Monica, who decided...

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...

The Price is Wrong B*TCH!

I always used to watch the Price is Right whenever I would stay home sick from school.  Something about a bunch of random idiots winning prizes just hits a chord with me.  Or is it strikes a nerve?  Ah it’s not important.  What is important is that Carey Price’s season is officially over.  Blame the nasty “C” word or the awfulness that is the Montreal Canadians, they’re...

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...

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...

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...

Last-place Habs get win over Lightning

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...

May the Odds be Ever in Your Favour Columbus

The NHL entry draft lottery is only 5 days away, and it looks as though the Oilers are going to have another high chance at the number one overall draft pick. With only 2 games to go, the Oilers stand 2 points behind the 27th place Montreal Canadiens, but the Habs aren’t going down without a fight either.  And so, it will all come down to the final games this weekend. Continue...

Canadiens-Hurricanes Preview

The Montreal Canadiens still have a chance to avoid a dubious distinction the storied franchise has never suffered. Erik Cole may just help them avoid it. The former Carolina forward looks to stay hot as he and the Canadiens visit Raleigh for the Hurricanes' home finale Thursday night. Montreal (30-35-15) has not finished at the bottom of a conference since conferences were...

Maple Leafs-Canadiens Preview

While the visiting Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadiens don't have anything to play for, the Northeast Division rivals seem unlikely to go down without a fight as they close their schedules Saturday night. Montreal (30-35-16) has allowed a combined 13 goals in dropping three straight home matchups with Toronto (35-36-10). The Leafs have taken three of five in the series...
