Power Play Practice Pays off

The New York Rangers paid a visit to the Bell Centre in Montreal. The game featured some nice hitting on both sides and some power play opportunities. The Rangers never got on track in this contest.

Power play goals by Cole and Plekanec paved the way for the Habs dominated game. Carey Price made 17 saves to record his second shutout in as many games played. 

The young, inexperienced defenders were certainly up to the task of protecting Price and the net. Emelin once again did some hitting and sound positional play.  Crisp clean clearing passes were the order of this evening. 

This game featured two goals by the Captain and these were set up by the much-mal...

Sabres Snatch Success in Shootout

A tale of two games in one. One in which the Habs dominated and the other where the team sat back and allowed the Sabres not only back in the game but lead to the eventual loss in a shootout.

In the first two periods the Habs dominated the Sabres and the player of the game was none other than Erik Cole. He played a whale of a game in regulation, finishing checks, going to the net and scoring a rare power play goal. The Sabres had no answer to the line of Cole, Pacioretty and Desharnais in regularion. They were buzzing the net and creating chances. Spacek also played a heck of a game until he got injured in the middle of the game. Engqvist also played decently until he got injured by...

Game Day: Montreal Canadiens @ Phoenix Coyotes

The Montreal Canadiens are coming off of a 3-1 loss against the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night, and head into Jobing.com Arena as the first team the Coyotes have faced since they beat those same Oilers 4-2 on Saturday night.  Phoenix, however, are winless against Montreal through the last 11 games between the two.  Tonight's matchup also happens to be the 2500th against the Canadiens since the beginning of the Jets'/Coyotes' franchise.

The Canadiens are 4-5-1 in their last stretch of ten games, including four wins in a row, whereas Phoenix has hopped up to 8th spot in the Western Conference after going 6-3-1 in their last ten.  This is the last time Phoenix...

Game Day: Montreal Canadiens Vs. New York Rangers

 

Montreal Canadiens Vs. New York Rangers

The New Madison Square Garden

New York, New York

 

After over a month and twelve games if the team you supported was 500 would you be happy?  If the team you followed was average without having its top defenceman in the line-up would you be happy?  Well that is where the Montreal Canadiens are.  They are just an average team sitting just out of a playoff position.  How they got here is a different story but how they move forward is more important.

 

The eminent off and on return of the Andrei Markov which was the big story two weeks ago has been forgotten.  P.K. Subb...

Gameday: Habs Look to Keep Rolling in Ottawa

 

Hi. Nice to you see you again. It's been a while, hasn't it? 

Only a month into the 2011-12, it seems like we've had to go through yet another off-season, with six days off between the Canadiens' last couple of games (a sweep of a home-and-home series against the struggling Boston Bruins) and tonight's match-up against the red hot (wut) Ottawa Senators. Even the weather cooperated here in Montreal, with a few nice days throughout the week, despite the fact that it's November.

Yup, it definitely felt like we just had another mini off-season, and quite frankly, it couldn't have come at a worst time...

Jagr named NHL's 3rd Star of the Week

The NHL named Flyers winger Jaromir Jagr, who scored five goals and seven total points in four games, as their 3rd Star of the Week.

Habs Demolish Bruins

The Habs have beaten the Bruins for the second time in as many games in a spirited affair in the Bell Centre. The Habs opened the scoring and never looked back. They are playing a more cohesive game since the firing of Perry Pearn. 

The coaching staff is more animated and the team is playing with more life than they have played in a long while. The effort is there and they are going to the net and the results have started to come through.

The game featured some good scoring chances on both sides and some nice saves on both sides of the ice.

The referees had a tight game, calling the Bruins on many penalties in the first 40 minutes. The Habs power play capitalized on...

Two In A Row: Habs Avenge Themselves In Beantown

So, how has your week been so far?

In what can only be described as another week in Habs-land, the fans in this city have gone from having to be talked off the ledge, to pure elation, to a real glass cage of emotions that can't really be explained, in the process of no less than four days.

Backtrack to Monday night. The Canadiens had just lost their fifth game in a row, and were looking at one of, if not the worst start in the history of their organization. The Florida Panthers were hitting the Bell Centre ice, and the coaching and management staff was starting to feel the pressure around their necks. The end result? A 2-1 loss, thanks t...

Les Partisans Are Happy - For One Night

Philadelphia Flyers 1 Montreal Canadiens 5

It didn’t take long for Pierre Gauthier to listen to fans and the media.  Something needed to be done.  Something needed to change.  Someone needed to be held accountable for the start:  the worst start in the franchise’s history. 

So 90 minutes before the game Gauthier fired assistant coach Perry Pearn.  Pearn and coach Martin go back a long way but that relationship ended tonight and that change led to the Canadiens walking over the Flyers tonight.  That is what Gauthier would want everyone to believe!

After a long day of hearing everything from fire everybody to trade Carey Price...

Habs Squander Everything in Loss Against Leafs

Another game, another loss for the Montreal Canadiens.

More squandered leads, more lazy plays, and another failure to capitalize on opportunities that should have meant a tick in the win column for this team, at home, against the Toronto Maple Leafs

It was an exciting affair that included 9 goals, and (at times) end-to-end hockey. The Habs and Leafs traded leads and goals, and even runs at each others goals; James Reimer would not return to the game after the first period, thanks to an accidental shot to the head at the hands of Brian Gionta at the top of the game. Travis Moen would put up two goals, Lars Eller 2 assists and Andrei Kostitsyn...
