The Habs last night

Were you one of the many that stopped watching? If so, you're not alone. There were many empty seats with 3:22 remaining, when Lars Eller scored his first goal in almost 3 months, to bring the Habs to within two. The rest is history, as the Canadiens become the first team ever in NHL history to come back from a 3 goal deficit with less than 5 minutes remaining. What spurred...

Corey Crawford Makes Incredible Pad Save to Rob Montreal’s Lars Eller (Video)

Corey Crawford was considered by some to be a candidate for Team Canada’s third goalie. That job, however, went to Mike Smith, and Crawford was left to wait another four years for his next chance. He’s handling that snub pretty well so far, if Saturday night is any indication. Crawford turned in arguably the best save of his career on Saturday night on a pretty big stage. The...

Eric Engels: Habs Worst is Still .500 Hockey...

The Canadiens capped a tumultuous six-game road trip with a big 6-4 win against the Dallas Stars in what proved to be an old-fashioned barnburner. The win, secured by Lars Eller's brilliant third period goal and Max Pacioretty's insurance gave the Canadiens a 3-2-1 record, despite allowing an average of 3.66 goals against over the trip. I think it's pretty safe to...

Edmonton Oilers snap losing streak with 6-2 win over Winnipeg Jets

Dallas Eakins might want to get more of the wine and roses he sent Montreal Canadiens trash talker Lars Eller and address the card to himself. Or give it to his players. Whether the coach motivated the players or the players bailed out the coach is up for discussion, but at the end of a very long day for the Edmonton Oilers, they won.

Habs’ Eller Calls Oilers a Junior Team

The Edmonton Oilers had the fortunate opportunity to draft first overall for three years in a row, selecting Taylor Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, and Nail Yakupov, respectively. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that the Oilers are one of the youngest teams in terms of average age in the National Hockey League. Take away veterans such as Andrew Ference, 34, Ryan Smyth, 37, and...

Line combinations still eluding Canucks

When Lars Eller found he had been credited with the goal the Vancouver Canucks put into their own goal in the second period the one question he wanted answered is whether or not he gets a plus for being on the ice when his team scored. Because after all he wasn’t in fact on the ice when it went in. And while you could thus argue the Canucks scored one more goal than the one they...
