Game Day: Boston Bruins Vs. Montreal Canadiens

Boston Bruins Vs. Montreal CanadiensBell Centre

Montreal, Quebec

And the Montreal Canadiens are on the verge of winning the Stanley Cup…again.  Yes, we all have been taught not to start a sentence with “and” but this week has just seems like one big long game.  If you could go back to Wednesday morning and ask anyone if the Habs would be on the verge of winning three in a row come Saturday you would get some laughs, some snickers and the occasional French swear word. 

It’s Saturday and believe it or not the Habs do have a chance to win three in a row beating both the hated Bruins and Flyers.  As we bask in the glow of a glorious week...

Six Games In

p { margin-bottom: 0.08in; }

Instead of writing some game recaps, I decided to give my take on some players that are playing well, some that aren't, and some keys to winning games.

 

 

Looking Good:

 

Michal Handzus – This guy might be the prototypical 3rd line center that every team needs. Remember Malhotra? Handzus is the bottom six player the Sharks needed last year, and he has not disappointed. Defensively he is really good, he is always above 50% in the...

Are You Ready For Some Hockey?

...Too bad the sharks aren't playing any today. We still have to wait until Friday to watch another Shark's game. But maybe, just maybe, what seems like a punishment might actually be a blessing in disguise. You see, a myriad of Sharks are out right now with various injuries and would not have been ready to go on an earlier date. Havlat is still recuperating from a shoulder injury. Niemi is recovering from minor surgery that removed a cyst from his knee. And Marleau has missed every practice this week with the flu. Two of these three players, sans Marleau, also missed the opening game of the season. Which is a real testament to how stacked this Sharks team is with depth at all position...

Preseason- Montreal Canadiens v. Boston Bruins

 

I have not seen a live Habs game in a very long while and got the chance to visit some friends in Halifax and take in the game versus the Bruins. I would like to say the game lived up to the expectations, however the disappointment started the day before when the roster was announced.  Young guys that need more seasoning were plentiful in the lineup for the Habs and a seasoned crew with very few youngsters was present for the Bruins.

The result was predictable. The mostly inexperienced Habs got a drubbing by the Boston Bruins. The special team play was non-existent. Two power play goals and two shorthanded goals against by les gl...

Do The Montreal Canadiens Need Quebecers On The Team?

 

Any casual sports fan would think that Montreal's hockey team is named the Canadiens because they are Canada’s team, or that they have fans all across Canada.  To be honest, only the last statement is true.

Les Habitants have always spelled Canadiens with an ‘E’ , so maybe that should give some the idea that the team itself doesn’t represent all of Canada. For now, the team represents all of Quebec, whether it be English or French, Catholic or Jewish.  I say for now, because even the most die hard fan of the Habs cannot wait for the return of the Quebec Nordiques. 

So understanding that the Montreal Canadiens are as ...

Top 10 must-see games on the 2011-12 Chicago Blackhawks schedule

As the days march on towards Opening Night, and the bulk of trades and free agency acquisitions have been completed; the Draft and prospect camps are over; and the opening of Training Camps are still a few weeks away; as the weeks left until the new season drop into the single digits, there's one date circled on every fan's calendar to make it through the August doldrums: the date that their team's tickets go on sale. The Chicago Blackhawks have plenty of exciting matchups to choose from this year.

Five years ago, getting 14,000 fans in the seats at the United Center would've been considered a special night. Now, after three h...

What's Wrong With Chara?

Zdeno Chara gets beaten easily by Alex Burrows for the OT winner The question that's been floating around the media since last night is what the heck is wrong with Zdeno Chara? Stats aside, Chara's body language has been that of a defeated/hurt/exhausted hockey player. Even in Game One you could tell something was wrong. I don't have a horse in this race, but it kind of hurts to see Chara struggle so much. It sucks to see any player on the big stage perform at a level that isn't close to what they play to. I know Chara has had his head chopped off for some incident's (ask Max), but everyone has their dark moments. Usually when I watch Chara, he has a jump in his step and his shot ...
