P.K Subban welcomed rookie defenseman Adam Larsson to the NHL last night with this big open ice hit as the Swedish rookie crossed the blue line with his head down. The hit was good, clean hockey but the hit propelled Larsson into the boards resulting in a back injury. This is a great example of what Subban should and could be, a physical defenseman with a bomb of a shot and...
Things are getting ugly in Montreal. This has been a nightmare of the season for the Canadiens, and frankly, it seems that just when you think it can’t get any worse, it always does. The problems with the team are well documented, so I don’t want to waste your time giving my opinion on why this team is not performing. In fact, rather than harp on negatives, I prefer to look at...
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...
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. Gaustad ensured that he shot up the ranks on the long list of perceived Montreal villains on Tuesday night when he got into a verbal bout with the Canadiens bench. According to a number of Canadiens, Gaustad got into it with...
Any slim hope of making the post-season - and they were very slim to begin with - evaporated further as the Canadiens fell to the struggling Buffalo Sabres.
While the Habs managed to play a decent first period, even jumping to an early lead courtesy of Max Pacioretty, they offered mostly abysmal hockey for the final two periods.
As a result, the Sabres capitalized, scoring...
MONTREAL (February 3, 2012) – The Montreal Canadiens announced today that forward Aaron Palushaj has been rec...
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...

Devils rebound after allowing first two goals of the game
Nicklas Backstrom still hasn't played since suffering a concussion from a cheap-shot elbow to the head from Rene Bourque on Jan. 3. Then a Calgary Flames forward and now with the Montreal Canadiens, Bourque served his five-game NHL suspension but is back in the lineup. He was back in time ...

P.K. Subban on Adam Larsson. No penalty and no update on Larsson.
The Devils’ prize rookie draftee might miss tomorrow’s visit to Philadelphia because of the crumpling hit P.K. Subban laid on him last night. The Canadiens think Adam Larsson should sit out anyway by suspension.
The sight of Larsson stretched out on the ice was an example of vigilante...
