from Dave Feschuk of the Toronto Star,
Perhaps by now you’ve seen the viral video of Carey Price, the Montreal Canadiens goaltender.
In the footage Price is seen ungracefully absorbing a puck to the family jewels. The damage is done by an innocuous-looking wrist shot from teammate Lars Eller in warmups for Wednesday’s game against the Boston Bruins. Price, after he takes the hit, sprawls on his stomach in apparent agony. After slowly gathering himself, he leaves the ice in a door-slamming huff....
For those of us who have not been there, Price’s dance to the edge of reproductive viability was worth more than a few hardy-hars. It also begged a serious question: When will goalie jock straps be big enough to end such misery?
Goalie jocks, if you don’t get a regular look at them, are massive. If the protective cups worn by players are the equipment equivalent of a Tim Hortons medium, the models donned by the men who patrol the crease are a 7-Eleven Super Big G...
BEST OF MAXIM
This is what an NHL goaltender looks like after taking a shot to the junk.
During warm-up before their game against the Bruins Wednesday night, Canadiens goalie Carey Price had the unfortunate experience of taking a Lars Eller practice shot to the groin, which is an altogether terrible experience for any man, boy or hermaphrodite, protective cup or not.
Price was able to shake off...
PLAY NICE, CHILDREN
It's no secret that the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Montreal Canadiens do not get along. It's also no secret that teams get chippy during one-sided blowouts, as the game between the two teams on Saturday night demonstrated in clear fashion. In a melee along the boards at about 11:30 into the third period, Max Pacioretty decided to put Mikhail Grabovski into a headlock....
Tomas Plekanec probably wishes you didn't see that. In on a breakaway against Tuukka Rask, Plekanec failed to get a shot off, instead mishandling the puck and sending it straight to the corner boards. As if wasting a scoring chance wasn't bad enough, the Montreal Canadiens were called for "Too many men on the ice" shortly after Plekanec's embarrassing misfire...

Ha! We were trying to think of a way to write the headline so it didn't sound too juvenile and not make a dick joke.
The reason: Take a look at the video at the bottom. In it, you'll see Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price get the "Wind" knocked out of him in warm ups as he blocks a wrist shot from one of his own players.
The problem: He missed and the puck...
I honestly have no idea what Montreal Canadiens captain Brian Gionta was thinking here. It’s a tie game, late in the second period, and it wasn’t even an odd man rush. What purpose did tackling Buffalo Sabres forward Cody Hodgson have? I think Gionta will want to plead temporary insanity on this one; at least it was a good wrap-up tackle.[YouTube]
But problems revealed over the last three losses run deeper than game-to-game or period-to-period personnel moves.
As has been the case in recent seasons, your Montreal Canadiens are a small and, Brandon Prust notwithstanding, soft hockey team. And their next home game is against the Flyers.
But the Canadiens didn’t lose to the Leafs because they were outmuscled and/or...
(Mackensie Alexander chooses Clemson on ESPNU - USA Today/Robert Mayer)
Flash back to June 14th, 2012 - that was the day the nation's No. 1 recruit, Robert Nkemdiche, announced his verbal commitment to.... Clemson. To say it left the college football world stunned was a little bit of an understatement and it vaulted the Tigers into the conversation of having the best class...
So the 6-3 Habs roll into Buffalo tonight, a day after blowing a 3rd period lead and losing 2-1 to the Boston Bruins. Peter Budaj gets the start, which seems surprising after Carey Price was relatively sharp and didn't look tired.
Heading into this season, many thought Price would play upwards of 48 games. Continue reading "Habs roll into Buffalo"
