After an amazing and near-perfect Game 5 in Las Vegas, the Montreal Canadiens are back in Montreal and are getting ready to face the Vegas Golden Knights for what could be their last matchup this season.
Montreal Canadiens winger Corey Perry has been a terrific piece for the Habs in their current postseason run. The Canadiens signed the veteran on the eve of training camp to a league minimum contract of $750,000 for one year.
Marc-Andre Fleury stopped Josh Anderson, but could do nothing about Kotkaniemi’s follow-up. The Canadiens create a semi-breakaway for Josh Anderson, Fleury spits out a rebound, and the Eagle swoops in for the kill.
Corey Perry signed late in the offseason with the Montreal Canadiens. It was a great pick up by the organization and he’s come to pay dividends, both as a non-regular roster member during the regular season, and as a player who steps up in come crunch time during the postseason.
The Montreal Canadiens have had a wild week – they are in the middle of a classic Stanley Cup Semifinal battle with the Vegas Golden Knights and they temporarily lost their head coach due to COVID-19, but the team keeps proving the doubters wrong and winning the heart of its fans and city.
The timing of this positive test for McCrimmon looks especially bad considering that he and President George McPhee were shown on Friday night’s television broadcast in a suite without masks, in violation of the league’s COVID Protocol.
The Montreal Canadiens’ Jonathan Drouin is at an unfortunate crossroads in his career, which seems too soon for a player only 26 years of age. I won’t speculate or assume what is going on with him, but a young player doesn’t take time off from the sport he loves if it isn’t serious.
