Canadiens Goalie Blows Game On Embarrassing Own Goal In OT (Video)

Peter Budaj is going to have nightmares about this one. With his team locked in a 2-2 tie with the Chicago Blackhawks in overtime, the Canadiens goaltender committed the ultimate mistake by actually tapping the puck into his own net to hand the Blackhawks a 3-2 victory. The trouble began for Budaj when Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith found forward Patrick Sharp open in front...

Blackhawks stun Canadiens in OT with two late goals

Patrick Sharp’s shot deflected off Peter Budaj before flipping up and over the Montreal goaltender, ending up in the back of the net. And after so many overtime outings in which the Chicago Blackhawks couldn’t get a goal, couldn’t eke out that extra point, they finally did both in their 80th game of the season. Marian Hossa’s goal tied it with 47.7 seconds remaining in...

Watch: Canadiens G Peter Budaj Knocks Game-Winning Goal Into Own Net

Goalies are the most important players on the ice, hands down. They’re the last line of defense and tend to be the difference—good or bad—in many games. Montreal Canadiens G Peter Budaj was just that in Wednesday night’s matchup with the Chicago Blackhawks. In a game that was deadlocked at 2-2, in overtime, Patrick Sharp […]

Peter Budaj Knocks Game-Winning Goal Into His Own Net

Montreal Canadiens goalie Peter Budaj was certainly kicking himself after the Habs loss to the Chicago Blackhawks. They were tied 2-2 in overtime when Budaj mishandled Patrick Sharp’s shot and then knocked the rebound into his own net. Nothing like an own-goal to cost your team the game.

B's have their way with Habs in Montreal, 4-1

So much for the Montreal Canadiens serving as a bad matchup for a Bruins team that can do no wrong. The Black and Gold did very little wrong in serving a 4-1 beating to the hated Habs on their home ice at the Bell Centre that ended a five-game losing streak against their Original Six arch-rivals. It didn’t always look that way as the Canadiens actually carried the play in the...

Habs back home to face B’s

The Canadiens are back in Montreal tonight, taking on the Boston Bruins as they try and leapfrog Toronto in the standings and gain another bit of cushioning on a playoff spot. Carey Price still isn't ready, so Peter Budaj is in again for Montreal. This may not be such a bad thing, as Budaj has great career numbers versus Boston, but he looked less than stellar over his past few...

Carey Price Won’t Be Ready To Play For Canadiens Against Bruins

The Boston Bruins will, at least in theory, dodge a bullet on Wednesday night when they renew their rivalry with the Montreal Canadiens. Canadiens head coach Michel Therrien told reporters Tuesday that goalie Carey Price will not be ready to go against the B’s. Price practiced on Tuesday, but he won’t be dressing for Wednesday’s game.

Eric Engels: Habs Win Shootout Shocker in Pittsburgh

I can promise you the coaches didn't draw it up that way, but the product of that was one of the most exciting hockey games of the year, as Montreal bested Pittsburgh 6-5 in a shootout. Peter Budaj and Marc-Andre Fleury struggled infinitely throughout the game, but Budaj came up huge in the shootout, stopping James Neal, Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, while David Desharnais...

Canadiens top Penguins 6-5 in shootout

The Pittsburgh Penguins and Montreal Canadiens are still adjusting to NHL play after a nearly three-week Olympic layoff. And it showed Thursday night. The Canadiens, playing in their second game in as many days, however, got a good performance in the end from their backup goaltender as he filled in for an injured Olympic gold medalist. Peter Budaj stopped all three shooters in...

Somehow, Jeff Jimerson makes "O Canada!" sound less repulsive than it normally would be in these tough times.  PK Subban is doing a ******* jig during the Canadian anthem.  And a lingering shot of Sidney Crosby seals the deal.  This is going to be a difficult and emotional evening.  During the US anthem, Dan Bylsma is looking to the digital flags on the scoreboard as...

However, Sunday was a new day, and it brought us a new favorite hockey player in the Olympics: Slovakia’s third goaltender, Jan Laco. The 32-year-old Laco received the start against Russia over two NHL goaltenders, Jaroslav Halak and Peter Budaj, who had both struggled in their...

Habs beat Bruins, 4-1

This was one of those games where a lot of players took advantage of their opportunities. Let’s start with Peter Budaj.
