Cammalleri ties it late; Flames get point

The Flames salvaged a point out of the Stars and Mike Cammalleri was a big help.

The Flames now sit two points back of both the Coyotes and the Kings, who they play on Saturday night, for the 8th and final playoff spot

Flames Don't Like Disneyland

The Flames streak of losing in Disneyland continued as they fell 3-2 in a shootout to the Ducks.

Despite having a PP in the last half of the third, and glorious opportunities in the OT and the shootout, they still came up short.

They got one point, but desperately needed another.

The Montreal Canadiens Disaster of 2011-12

Earlier today, I asked twitter if it was too soon to compare this Habs season to the cruise ship tragedy in Italy. Consensus was that it was probably in poor taste. Obviously, not because it's too soon to give up on the Canadiens, but because of the tragedy itself.

Instead, we came up with a few other disasters that sum up what Montreal Canadiens fans are feeling right now, as their team sits in 12th place in the East, and only two points away from being the absolute worst team in the conference. You may be more used to seeing these types of things over at our sister-site, Better With Popcorn, but feel free to let us know which one you think best represents the 2011-12 se...

Calgary Flames: Fall to Sharks in Shootout

Failing to take advantage of a great effort from goalie on out and failing to take advantage of a bad ‘non goal’ against the San Jose Sharks in OT, the Flames fell 2-1 in a shootout to the Sharks to kick off a three game road trip.

The Flames have a lot of positives to take out of tonight's effort however and will look to take those into Thursday's tilt with the Kings.

Guess who's back?

Mike Cammalleri was the one player that I always knew got away from the Flames.He worked in Calgary. That was plainly clear, and he was loved in his short time here.

In 81 games with the Flames in 2008-09, Cammy scored 39 goals added 43 assists for 82 points. It was his best season, points wise in the NHL. He also led the Flames in goals that year.

Cammy will make his re-debut with the Flames this saturday night when the his other former team the Kings come into tow. Cammy will be sporting #93

Well, That Was Quick: Habs Boot Mike Cammalleri To Calgary

 

It was bound to happen after the comments he made yesterday. For all intents and purposes, Mike Cammalleri had punched his ticket out of Montreal. But no one thought it would happen this quickly, and definitely not this way.

On Thursday night, following the Habs’ 2-1 loss to the Boston Bruins, the team announced that it had traded their former star free agent acquisition to the Calgary Flames, in exchange for forward Rene Bourque. The deal also included goaltender Karri Ramo (currently playing in Europe) and a fifth round pick in 2012 heading to Calgary, with prospect Patrick Holland of the Tri-City Americans and a second round pick in 2013 coming back to Montreal...

Habs Drop Bruins' Matchup 2-1, Trade Cammalleri Mid-Game

The Montreal Canadiens managed once again to keep the focus away from the game being played, in what this time seems to be one of the more shocking and puzzling twists to a 2-1 loss against the Bruins in recent history.

Boston opened the scoring off a strange play, as a clearing attempt meant for the stanchion took an unexpected bounce and wound up in the Canadiens' net off the stick of Jordan Caron with just 1:23 having elapsed in the game. Caron had just been recalled from the Bruins' AHL affiliate in Providence earlier in the day. 

Not a goal was scored until early in the thi...

Mike Cammalleri's Displaced Anger

 

Among all the controversies, all the language debates, all these trivial issues that seem to plague many people in and around the city of Montreal this hockey season (and that I’ve been categorically trying to ignore), there’s an overlying issue that tends to get swept under the rug more often than not with this team.

The Habs just suck.

Blame it on the Anglophone coach, blame it on the incompetent GM or the face-saving owner, but when push comes to shove, the onus of the win-loss record and performance of the Montreal Canadiens falls squarely on the shoulders of the players, and the players only.

Is it Randy Cunneyworth or Jacques Martin’s...

Game Day: Canadiens @ Bruins

The Montreal Canadiens will be in Boston, Massachusetts on Thursday evening for another heated showdown with the rival Boston Bruins. These two teams are on complete opposite ends of the standings, with the Bruins, who have won ten of their last twelve games, sitting pretty at the top of the Northeastern Conference. The Canadiens have only won four of their last twelve games, are sitting dead last in the conference, and sixteen points behind the Bruins.

 

That being said, games between these two bitter rivals are always unpredictable. While logic would dicta...

Game Day: Canadiens @ Panthers

The Montreal Canadiens finish up a six-game road trip in Sunrise, Florida tonight as they face the Panthers in the BankAtlantic Center. This road-trip has been a miserable one for the Canadiens, as they have dropped four out of five games so far. Tonight they will try to end 2011 with a win, something that hasn't come easy to them this season.

 

In seasons past, this game might be an easy win for the Canadiens, but not this year. This year, the Canadiens (14-17-7) have been around the bottom of the Eastern Conference for the majority of the season. Meanw...
