Red Wings Daily (10/22/14): Team Impressions, Day Off, and Around the NHL

Red Wings Updates Red Wings gain another point, but drop a good performance in Montreal The Red Wings’ defense has surprised many so far in this short season. What was projected by many, myself included in some instances, to be a total trainwreck is actually standing up fairly well to scrutiny. Detroit held the red-hot Canadiens to zero goals through almost 57 minutes of play last...

Questioning Sports Integrity

I get it…winning is everything, right? Isn’t that what we’re told…if you win, you’re looked at as coming out on top. But at what cost? Think back to those days playing sports as a child. Do you ever remember a coach saying “take a dive”? In this era of protecting player safety and trying to limit contact to preserve the health and well being of our athletes, we’ve...

Kerry Fraser On Datsyuk’s No Goal

from Kerry Fraser of TSN, I have stated in previous columns that Carey Price is without question, the very best goalkeeper in the NHL at utilizing rule 69 to his advantage whenever an attacking player enters the blue paint. The snow from Abdelkader's stopping action was the first indicator for Price that his territory was about to become violated. Price immediately pushed...

Datsyuk’s latest trick scrapped due to NHL’s ridiculous goalie interference rules (w/ VIDEO)

The Magic Man returned to action on Wednesday night for the Detroit Red Wings, as they were at the Bell Centre in Montreal to play the Montreal Canadiens. And oh boy did he score a beauty of a goal! The goal was seen everywhere from TSN to SportsCenter, and Fox Sports Live. Unfortunately for the Red Wings, the only place you won’t find it will be on the scoresheet. The call on...

VIDEO: Pavel Datsyuk’s Incredible Goal Waved Off on Questionable Call

In his first game back from injury, Pavel Datsyuk nearly added another brilliant highlight to his resume. Heck, he did so anyway, even if his goal was waved off on a brutal call in front. Datsyuk pulled off a spin-o-rama backhander that beat Carey Price top shelf, but Justin Abdelkader was called for making incidental contact with Price. Replays showed that Price appeared to initiate...

5-1 Habs recall Bournival, get ready for Red Wings

Montreal heads into Tuesday's game with the Red Wings coming off an impressive 3-2 win over the Colorado Avalanche. The Habs dominated the Avs at times, and perhaps most importantly, Carey Price looked like his normal self after a slow start. PK Subban was especially brilliant, scoring two highlight reel goals, and the Canadiens banded together towards the end of the game, fighting...

Notes By Brooks

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, - So Ken Dryden literally handed the torch to Carey Price at Thursday’s home opener in Montreal. This hopefully will work out better for the Canadiens then when Dryden figuratively handed the torch to Bunny Larocque and Denis Herron in 1979. One game, winner take all. Who do you want: Dryden or Patrick Roy? I’ll take Dryden...

Zdeno Chara’s Power Play Goal Gives Bruins Early Lead Over Habs (Video)

There was plenty of scoring between the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night, but Zdeno Chara got the B’s on the board first. The Bruins captain used his big frame to camp out in front of the net on a power play during the first period. Forward Milan Lucic slid the puck to David Krejci near the blue line, who blasted a slap shot in the direction of Canadiens goaltender...

The Price Is Still Right, Just Give Him Time

Yesterday I preached the virtue of patience, as in have some and don’t give up on guys after two or three games. There is no buy or sell high right now, at least not for the sane, because we’ve only just begun to rumble this season and the chips need to fall before we make the right calls. Next up on the “Don’t freak out, freaks!” front is Carey Price (L, 19 SV, 4 GA, ...

Game 3 Preview: Flyers look for first win of the season as they face Montreal

2014-15 Montreal Canadiens Preview: Expectations High After Deep 2014 Playoff Run

The Montreal Canadiens appeared to be headed for their first Stanley Cup Final appearance since 1993 last season when they upset the Boston Bruins in the second round. But an injury to star goaltender Carey Price in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals and a scoring slump were too much to overcome against a New York Rangers team with excellent defense and an elite goaltender....

P.K. Subban admits to gross habit to distract goalies

It appears the Montreal Canadiens have a new offensive strategy — offensive to the senses, that is. Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban spoke to’s Arpon Basu and admitted a rather bizarre strategy on the ice. P.K. Subban just admitted he intentionally farts in front of the net to annoy the opposition. I'm sure Carey Price must love that.— Аrpon Basu (@ArponBasu...

Canadiens Trade Backup Goaltender Peter Budaj To Winnipeg Jets

MONTREAL — The Montreal Canadiens have traded goaltender Peter Budaj to the Winnipeg Jets for forward Eric Tangradi. By dealing Budaj, the Canadiens opted to keep Dustin Tokarski as Carey Price’s backup after the 25-year-old played well in last year’s Eastern Conference final against the New York Rangers. Tokarski would have had to go on waivers if the Habs didn’t keep him...
