Found March 13, 2012 on Kukla's Korner:
A Tuesday afternoon meeting is scheduled with Myers and Shanahan for this hit on Scott Gomez last night. Myers received 2 for boarding on the play.

Video: Habs player scores, high-fives ref

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...

Pacioretty putting 'The Hit' behind him

Back in September, Max Pacioretty said he wanted to be known for his play, not 'The Hit.' Mission accomplished. Pacioretty has been one of the few bright spots in an otherwise dismal season for the Canadiens. His 30 goals and 56 points lead the team, with several weeks to add before season's end. "Thirty goals is exciting," he told reporters after reaching...

Eric Engels: Two and a Half Men: Cole, Pacioretty and Desharnais

As expected, the Canadiens Masterton nominee this season is Max Pacioretty. The award is given to the player "who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to ice hockey". If coming back from a broken neck and severe concussion to score 30 goals doesn't fit the bill, I don't know what does (pardon the pun). As for sportsmanship...

Steven Hindle: A Sense of Normalcy

Andrei Markov Returns, Habs Go From Night to Day 140 games, 483 days and a whole bunch of losses and hotdogs in the pressbox watching his teammates toil away for the last two seasons made Andrei Markov an awfully hungry hockey player. Returning to the lineup in a flash on Saturday night in Vancouver against the Canucks, the Habs and Markov caught the hockey world off-guard...

Habs tie it late, lose 3-2 to Sabres

Good thing David Desharnais played Monday night, because if it wasn’t for him, the Habs wouldn’t have been in this game. The usual storyline: Habs take lead, Habs blow lead, except in this one, they tied it with 3 seconds left, and then lost in overtime. I won’t even get into the game: what’s with the celebrating? One thing I always appreciated about Saku Koivu was his class...

Three candidates for Habs GM

There's a good chance Pierre Gauthier will be fired as Habs GM after the season, and the Ottawa Sun's Bruce Garrioch thinks Chicago Hawks exec Marc Bergevin will take over. However, Garrioch also thinks two other guys might be ideal candidates: Tampa assistant GM Julien Brisebois and Toronto assistant GM Claude Loiselle. As far as coaches, Garrioch pegs Patrick Roy and Winnipeg...

Eric Engels: How Will Habs add Toughness to Blue Line? None Without 76 and 74...

There was Andrei Markov, playing his 53rd game in three seasons Saturday, proving that at 70%, he's still better than a lot of other players. But his appearance in the lineup from here to the end of the season will likely inspire more doubt than promise about his future. Will he be able to produce? Absolutely. Will he be exposed, defensively? Absolutely. And we...

Video- Did You Catch It?

Watch Erik Cole after he scored the goal tonight.

GARTH: Ruff Defends Myers

As of 6:30pm EDT, Brendan Shanahan has yet to pass down his verdict on whether of not Tyler Myers will be suspended for his hit from behind on Scott Gomez. Myers had his phone hearing with Shanahan at 1pm EDT on Tuesday. The question now is whether Myers intended to hit his opponent from behind. Today, after practice, Lindy ruff defended Myers by saying that he felt like...

GARTH: Enzomatic

Poor Andrei Markov. Before Saturday night's start in Vancouver, the former NHL All Star D had missed 140 games due to a jacked up ACL. In his second game back to the lineup, Tyler Ennis toe-dragged him Sabres infamy. Ennis has the hands of a jewel thief and he used them to perform larcent against Markov and Budaj. The goal had double meaning for the Sabtres as it tied...
