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...
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...
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...
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...
It was an odd night for the Montreal Canadiens. Not only were they taking part of history at the MTS Center in Winnipeg, as the first opponents of the newly reinstated Winnipeg Jets, but they were also looking for their first win of the season, after dropping a 2-0 decision in Toronto on Thursday night.
Impressions weren't exactly at their highest after that first game, but that was only one game for the Canadiens. Cobwebs were being swept away and the team was searching for chemistry after a tumultuous pre-season, which included injuries, new players, and even a couple of late acquisitions

Ever since the National Hockey League announced the return of the Winnipeg Jets, all anyone who is a hockey fan has been waiting for is opening day. If the return of Jets wasn’t enough, the league decided to bring in the most storied franchise as their first opponent: the Montreal Canadiens. The summer of logo and sweater unveilings, new coach hirings and player signings is over and now real life in Winnipeg begins. The hype is over and now it’s time to drop the puck.

If you’re a fan of the Los Angeles Kings, you’re likely not very happy camper right now. While your team is getting ready for the upcoming season at training camp, your top defenseman, and possibly your best overall player, is currently holding out for more money.
The Kings have offered Doughty, 21-years-old and a restricted free agent coming off his first NHL contract, a handsome sum of money to continue his tenure with the team, as much as $6.8 million a season – which is what the Kings’ internally-appointed franchise player, Anze Kopitar currently makes, also coming off an entry-level deal. That amount w...
Hockey has finally returned! For the first time in months, the Montreal Canadiens took the Bell Centre ice last night, taking on the Dallas Stars in the first game of the pre-season.
Unfortunately, it seemed as if someone didn't give the Habs the memo, who found themselves on the receiving end of a 6-3 loss at the hands the Stars, led by former Habs Michael Ryder and Mike Ribeiro.
The Canadiens had an especially tough start, going down 0-3 to Dallas in less than ten minutes, and 0-4 by the second period, with Carey Price between the pipes. The Canadiens would rally with three goals of th...
