John Scott’s NHL All-Star Game Odyssey: Now in storybook form

To say that the Odyssey John Scott experienced en route to an appearance and captaincy at the 2016 NHL All-Star Game last week would be a understatement of Greek epic proportions. And while he relished each and every moment leading up to his MVP-winning performance at the league’s annual showcase, there were pitfalls along the way, something the Arizona Coyotes-turned-Montreal...

Michel Therrien: Canadiens are aware they’re in tough shape for playoffs

After riding high to start the season, the Montreal Canadiens have completely imploded. As I’ve covered in-depth before, losing Carey Price, questionable coaching decisions and a lack of goals has decimated a squad which once posted an NHL-est 17-4-2 record to lead the NHL. For a slumping Montreal squad, last night against the Buffalo Sabres was no different. The Canadiens...

Montreal GM speculates about possibility of recalling John Scott

When John Scott was traded to the Montreal Canadiens a few weeks ago, it was obvious he was not part of the team's plans at the NHL level.

The Fall Of The Montreal Canadiens

As we sit and prepare for All-Star weekend, it seems like forever ago since the Montreal Canadiens began the season with a historic 9-0-0 start.
