Game Day: Devils @ Canadiens

The New Jersey Devils are in town tonight to face-off against the Montreal Canadiens for the second time in a week. The Devils are currently riding a three-game win streak that they will be looking to add to, while the Canadiens squad will hope to bounce back after a heart-breaking 4-3 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday

 

The big story heading in to a game between the Devils and Canadiens is usually about how Martin Brodeur unstoppable in the Bell Centre. While that may be true, something else is stealing the headlines on this day.

Gord Miller is probably not wrong in his assessment that HBO could probably have made a special about this game.  Unfortunately for the Canadiens, they would not be the heroes in this one.

After a topsy-turvy matchup that saw the game tied three times, the Flyers finally came out of the Bell Centre with a 4-3 win in hand while the Habs saw more of referee Chris Lee than the back of the Flyers' net.

Philadelphia got on the board first as everyone's eyes were on Jakub Voracek's dazzling dashes into the offensive zone, leaving none on Max Talbot, who potted the game's first ...

Montreal Too Much for Isles to Handle

The Islanders were in Montreal on Tuesday night, hoping to get back on the right track after a tough loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Canadiens Hold Off Islanders, Win 5-3

The New York Islanders were in town on Tuesday night, looking to steal two points from the Habs on home-ice. It didn't work out that way, however, and the Canadiens were able to win their second game in a row with help from a few unexpected scorers.

 

The first period featured a lot of scoring, for a Canadiens game anyway. Things didn't start off all that well as Lars Eller took an interference penalty just 40 seconds in, which put the Habs stellar penalty kill to work right off the bat. They managed to kill the penalty fairly easily, without the Islanders providing much of a threat. The first five minutes di...

The Habs Win – Someone Must Have Either Been Fired Or Traded

To judge any team and organization all you must do is look at one game.   A nondescript game, where nothing is at stake and nothing out of the normal is happening.  When it’s just one game out of the 82 a team plays, that is when you can evaluate a team.  How does a player play when nothing is on the line and when there is no pressure?  How does a player play when it’s a ho- hum game in the middle of December when nothing is on the line. 

A championship team, heck a good team, plays every game up to its ability.  A go...

Game Day: Canadiens @ Devils

The Montreal Canadiens will be looking to get back in the win-column in New Jersey on Saturday afternoon as they visit the Prudential Center to face-off with the Devils. The Canadiens have lost three of their last four in a shootout, including Thursday nights 4-3 loss to the Vancouver Canucks. Neither team has been hugely successful heading into Saturday's game, with both clubs amassing only 29 points on the season so far. The Devils do hold a slight advantage though, with two games in hand and going 5-5-0 in their last ten games compared to Montreal, who have gone 3-3-4. The Devils will be looking to win a third straight game against an opponent from the No...

Game Day: Habs vs. Canucks

 

The Montreal Canadiens will look to bounce back from a slightly embarrassing 3-2 shootout loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday evening, as they prepare to face the Vancouver Canucks at the Bell Centre.

Logic would dictate that the Habs will be looking at another loss after tonight's game, but this team doesn't exactly follow the laws of physics. If this season has proven anything, it's that when their backs are up against the wall (i.e., the coach's job seems to be in jeopardy), this team will bust out a win against the most unlikely opponent. It happened in Winnipeg when the Canadiens beat the Jets in their long-awaited home opener. It happened...

Price Preserves Win for Habs

The Montreal Canadiens squeeked by the Los Angeles Kings in a matinee encounter at the Staples Centre, snapping a four game losing streak. 

The first period featured some spectacular saves by Carey Price and looked like the Kings would not score at all. The Habs were outshot by a large margin only managing a handful of shots while giving up fourteen. The good news is the woeful power play finally scored on a nice shot by Tomas Plekanec. The much maligned power play has quietly started a string of a modest two games in a row I believe. The penalty killing units were counted on to do yeoman service once again in the first when the Habs killed off three penalties in a row includin...

Poor Performance, Controversy Mars Habs Loss To Penguins

We should probably preface all of this by declaring that, outside of Carey Price, the Montreal Canadiens probably didn't deserve to win tonight (Jeez, haven't heard THAT before, eh?).

The Habs played a sloppy and inconsistent game against Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins at the Bell Centre tonight, and the end result was a 4-3 overtime loss against what was obviously a better team.

That's what should have been the game story following tonight's game. Instead, we're left to sift through the wreckage of the hockey equivalent of a nuclear missile. No, the story of tonight's game wasn't Carey Price's amaz...

Habs Offer Turkey for Thanksgiving

Claude Giroux scored two goals for the Philadelphia Flyers to beat the Habs on the afternoon after Thanksgiving. 

The first period was a lackluster affair as both teams were looking for their legs after having their Thanksgiving dinners. Less than three minutes into the game the Habs got called for one of their infamous too many men penalties. In true Hab fashion this season it was killed off with hardly any shots recorded on Carey Price. Nokelainen scored his first goal as a member of the Canadiens near the end of the first with assists going to Hal Gill and Josh Gorges...yes it was that kind of afternoon. The shots in the first period was 10-4 in favour of the Habs-.
