Video: Canadiens D hipchecks teammate

For an NHL defenseman, it has to be a good feeling to skate through center ice and lay a good hit on a guy with his head. But, it can't be a good feeling when that guy with his head down is your teammate.Montreal Canadiens blue liner Alexei Emelin had Minnesota Wild winger Nick Johnson lined up for a little hip check when Johnson pulled a nifty move to sidestep him. Instead...

Eric Engels: Who Should the Canadiens add Through Free Agency?

When Pierre Gauthier suggested the Canadiens could quickly rebound next year, he certainly opened the door for the possibility that the club would be eating unmovable contracts held by Scott Gomez and Tomas Kaberle. Reconstructing things to turn the Canadiens into a playoff team would mean capitalizing on their high draft position and playing the market to help support the already...

Wife says Beliveau making excellent progress

Montreal Canadiens legend John Beliveau is making excellent progress in his recovery from a stroke. Elise Beliveau, the Hall of Famer's wife, told the Montreal Gazette on Thursday that her husband had regained some of his strength and was speaking and laughing. The 80-year-old Beliveau remains under observation at Montreal General Hospital after suffering a stroke on Monday...

Devin Setoguchi makes worst NHL shooutout attempt ever (Video)

In Thursday night's NHL game in Montreal, Minnesota forward Devin Setoguchi took the final shootout attempt for the Wild. The Canadiens held a one goal lead in the shootout, so Setoguchi had to make the shot to lock up the tie. However, to say that Setoguchi did not make the shot would be an understatement, as his shootout attempt may have been the worst in NHL history. Setoguchi...

Patches pulls his best Kovalev, Emelin clips Cole

Last night's Montreal Canadiens vs. Minnesotta Wild game was... well... wild. (Apologies for the pun.) First off, with under a minute left in the game and with a wide open net, Max Pacioretty scoops up the puck and is racing for the nail in the coffin goal. Kurtis Foster harasses him with his stick which leads to another dive. Cool dive, bro. Maybe Patches is just...

Canadiens 5, Wild 4, SO

David Desharnais scored in regulation and in a shootout as the Montreal Canadiens pulled out a 5-4 win over the Minnesota Wild, despite blowing a three-goal lead in the third period Thursday night. The Wild trailed 4-1 going into the final four minutes of regulation and scored three times. Matt Kassian got his second of the game, and Dany Heatley scored before Devin Setoguchi tied...

Alexei Emelin Destroys Teammate Erik Cole

Yesterday’s game between the Minnesota Wild and Montreal Canadiens proved to be very eventful. Canadiens defenseman Alexei Emelin tried to throw a check on Nick Johnson of the Minnesota Wild, but instead collided with his teammate Erik Cole and flipped him up into the air, acrobat style. Emelin has a notoriously mean hip check that I’m sure Cole wasn’t too pleased to be on...

Canadiens and Wild Desperately Each Try to Give Game Away

The Montreal Canadiens took on the Minnesota on Thursday and both teams seemed to do everything they could to provide the other with a victory. For Montreal, they opted to have Alexei Emelin dish out a bruising hit to his teammate Aaron Cole that sent Cole cartwheeling through the air before heading to the bench with the wind knocked out of him. Then with the shootout point on the...

Carey Price earns Molson Cup honours for February

Eric Engels: The Habs Haven't Just Lost Games, They've Lost Themselves

Can you believe this has the potential to turn into the worst season the Canadiens have had in the post-1967 expansion era of hockey? Less than 70 points would make it so, statistically (unless you count the abridged season in 1995, but you wouldn't). Can the Habs collect 12 points in their final 18 games? Chances are good they can. Will they get much more than...

Wild-Canadiens Preview

Whether it's bad offense, great opposing goaltending or a combination of the two, the Montreal Canadiens haven't been able to score with much regularity. That definitely wasn't the case the last time they faced the Minnesota Wild. Montreal looks to avoid a season high-tying sixth consecutive loss Thursday night when it hosts a Wild club dealing with its own offensive...
