As the Canadiens enter what is to be their last full month of play, they have displayed some reasonably impressive hockey, posting a 4-2-1 record.
While it's unfortunate that the Canadiens recent play is no doubt too little too late, it is at least an indication that the Habs are in fact better than they've shown thus far.
Lack of Offensive Depth
So far, the Habs...
David Desharnais scored in regulation and in a shootout, lifting the Montreal Canadiens to a 3-2 win over the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday night.
Desharnais had the only goal in the shootout, and Canadiens goalie Carey Price stopped all three Ottawa attempts.
Erik Cole also scored for Montreal (28-32-11), 3-0-1 in its last four games. The Canadiens are 3-0-1 against the Senators...
Morning puck fans!
I will be brief in my commentary this A.M. In fact, I will just pose one quick question.
Weren't you all terrified when Andrei Markov dropped to the ice after getting a puck to the face?
I was. I was thinking 'oh no, not again'
Thankfully, he was alright and returned to the game. Hopefully, that good fortune can continue for the duration...
Erik Cole scored a goal on Wednesday night for the Ottowa Senators and couldn’t find any of his teammates to celebrate with. So what did Cole do? He found an outstretched arm of an 18-year veteran official Greg Kimmerly and gave him a high five. Pretty hilarious and you can only imagine what the ref was thinking after it happened.
“He was the only one there, and I had...
Ottawa Senators goaltender Craig Anderson went through his first practice Thursday since slicing his finger three weeks ago.
Anderson has been sidelined since he cut a tendon in his pinky while cooking dinner at his home on Feb. 22.
The 30-year-old Anderson told the Ottawa Citizen that he will need a few more practices to get his timing back.
He owns a 29-19-6 record and 2.85...
I can confidently say that I’ve never seen this happen before, but it was certainly entertaining. In the Canadiens/Senators game tonight, Erik Cole scored the first goal of the game on Sens backup goalie Ben Bishop and then proceeded to high-five referee Greg Kimmerly. It didn’t seem like Kimmerly was exactly planning for the high-five, more like signaling that it was a good...
Filip Kuba scored 3:07 into overtime Friday night as the Ottawa Senators moved into first place in the Northeast Division with a 2-1 victory over the Montreal Canadiens.
After taking a pass from Daniel Alfredsson, Kuba beat Carey Price with a slap shot from the top of the left faceoff circle. Erik Karlsson assisted on Kuba's winner, giving him four points in his last three games...
Defenseman Filip Kuba scored 3:07 into overtime as host Ottawa moved
into first place in the Northeast Division by topping Montreal 2-1 in overtime Friday.
Colin Greening also scored and Ben Bishop turned aside 13 shots for
the Senators, who improved to 3-0-2 in their last five games and ended
the Boston Bruins' 107-day reign atop the division.
In overtime, Kuba'...
Erik Cole is one of the fastest skaters in the NHL and he showed off that speed on Wednesday as he flew down the ice to bang a goal home. He was so fast down the ice there wasn't anyone there to celebrate his goal with right away so he did the next best thing: high-five the ref.
I love it!

In what should go down as the worst game of professional hockey ever played(alright: half-kidding), the Ottawa Senators emerged victorious 2-1 in overtime, courtesy of a Filip Kuba rocket past Montreal net-minder Carey Price in the waning moments of extra-time.
Although a close-scoring affair between divisional rivals...
A few days after signing NCAA unrestricted free agent forward Cole Schneider, the Ottawa Senators have been linked to yet another unsigned collegiate player. This time, it's Western Michigan defenceman Danny DeKeyser. From the Team 1200's Shawn Simpson (@ssimpsonhockey):
Danny Dekeyser from Western Michigan is the top College UFA. 25 teams chasing the D man. Ottawa in the...
For the first time since November, the Bruins will wake up Saturday morning looking up at another team in the Northeast Division standings. The Ottawa Senators took over the division lead when Filip Kuba scored 3:07 into overtime to beat Montreal Friday night. The Senators now have 84 points with a 37-25-10 record, one more than the Bruins (40-27-3, 83 points). The Bruins fall all...
The Bruins haven't been playing well lately, but they've still been able to hold onto an increasingly slim lead in the Northeast Division. However, the Ottawa Senators are charging hard and playing with plenty of confidence down the stretch. At this time, the Bruins aren't in any real danger of missing the playoffs, but should Ottawa pass them for the divisional lead...
I don't know if this is common practice in Montreal, but it happened Wednesday night with Erik Cole and this lucky official. I have to assume it is though, as it is on video, and BMR French Canadian expert Loser Domi is on vacation
Erik Karlsson banks a pass off of the leg of Ben Bishop, the next thing you know, the puck is in Ottawa’s net.
