Hawks downed by Habs in OT; face Oilers at home Sunday night

 

In an exciting matchup between two Original Six teams, Corey Crawford was stellar, stopping 36 shots as the Hawks managed to earn a point against the Montreal Canadiens.

 

Andrei Markov would be the only Canadien to score, tallying both of Montreal’s goals while Marian Hossa scored the lone goal for Chicago.

Postgame 11/10: Islanders @ Canadiens

The New York Islanders lose to the Montreal Canadiens for their 4th loss in a row.

Habs Trio Shuts Down Flyers

Alex Galchenyuk, Brendan Gallagher and Lars Eller are a pretty exciting trio for Montreal.

The Flyers weren't very entertained by them though, and rightfully so. The trio combined for six points in the Canadiens' 4-1 win over the Flyers on Saturday.

Gameday at Montreal: Habs, Briere Host Flyers

The Flyers begin a back-to-back road stretch in Montreal tonight. It is also the first time Danny Briere will play against the Flyers since being bought-out over the summer.

Hartnell's Hat Trick, Three-Point Nights for Giroux, Voracek Lead Flyers

The Flyers offense woke up in a big way, but it may have been little too late.

With playoffs well out of reach, the Flyers exploded out of their four-game losing skid and scoring funk to beat the Canadiens, 7-3, Monday night.

The Flyers have had a problem with scoring lately but they shook that off early. Just over two minutes into the game, Wayne Simmonds created a scoring chance to put the Flyers up 1-0.

Simmonds followed his own rebound with another shot on net. The puck was then deflected in off the stick of Sean Couturier to get past Carey Price to put the Flyers on the board first.

Habs Ship Erik Cole To Dallas For Mature Ryder, Cap Flexibility

 

On Tuesday evening, we finally saw the big differences between the current Montreal Canadians administration, and the ones that fans had been subjected to over the last decade. As most of you were probably driving home from work, the team announced a trade which would send Erik Cole to the Dallas Stars in exchange for former Hab Michael Ryder (Cole waived his no-trade clause to complete the deal). At a glance, a lot of people probably cringed at the thought of Ryder returning to his old stomping grounds, because much like Michel Therrien, he represents the old guard, maybe even everything that had been wrong with this organization. But when you delve a little further into i...

Flyers Out-Shot and Out-Played In Loss to Habs

With Carey Price out with the flu and a struggling Peter Budaj in net for the Canadiens, all the Flyers had to do was put shots on net and get pressure on the back-up netminder.

They did neither of that, and frankly, that is why they dropped their ninth regulation loss of the season.

In what was one of the most miserable outings of the 2013 season, the Flyers looked like a lost team.

Canadiens Invite 27 to Training Camp

With the NHL and NHLPA officially ratifying the new Collective Bargaining Agreement late Saturday night, all eyes have now shifted towards the opening day of training camp. Coaches will get to step on the ice with their players and evaluate their squad for the first time this season, and for the Montreal Canadiens, the players will get to formally meet their new Head Coach Michel Therrien.

 

The Canadiens have invited 27 players to camp, made up of 16 forwards, 9 defensemen, and 2 goalies. While the training...

Canadiens Well Represented at World Juniors

With the 2012 World Junior Championships just around the corner, Canadiens fans can take great pride in knowing that three prospects of the team will suit up for Team Canada when the tournament opens on December 26th in Alberta. Forwards Brendan Gallagher and Michael Bournival will play for Canada, along with this years first round draft pick Nathan Beaulieu.

 

This is no small feat for the organization, considering Team Canada has featured no more than one Habs prospect per year in the past few years. To have three on the final roster for this years tournament not only provides a lot of hop...

Habs Make First Round of Cuts; Who's Still Here?

 

It's been an eventful training camp for the Montreal Canadiens thanks to, among other reasons, yesterday's Chris Campoli signing. Some players have impressed, some have surprised us, while others have left Jacques Martin and his coaching staff unexcited, and that of course means cuts.

With the recent spell of four games in four nights in the books, the Canadiens finally announced the first few waves of cuts:

Defensemen --

Nathan Beaulieu: The 2011 first round pick impressed many at training camp, but it's obviously in his best interest to continue his QMJHL career at 18-years-old. The 6'2" 175lbs defenseman still has a frame to fill ...
