After a close game against the Islanders earlier this week, the Habs are ready to take on the visiting Philadelphia Flyers.
While the Habs have had their injury problems this season, the Flyers have had some of there own lately. Superstar forward Claude Giroux is sidelined with, what appears to be, a serious concussion after taking a knee to the head from his teamate Wayne Simmonds. Veteran blue liner,Chris Pronger is also out of the lineup with concussion like symptoms. Pronger also suffered a serious eye injury earlier in the season, and is also having issues with his knee.
Tomas Kaberle has made an impact for the Habs so far in...
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 Montreal Canadiens host the New York Islanders tonight and Jason gives us his thoughts on the game. One of the questions he had was if Chris Campoli would be dressing tonight. The Habs front office and coaching staff has never been too forthcoming with any information about the team or its' players. They like to keep us guessing and feel that a cloak of secrecy will give them a leg up on the opposition....anyways....
Chris Campoli has been out of the line up since he tore his hamstring against the Toronto Maple Leafs on October 6th. Since his injury Raphael Diaz and Alexei Emelin have stepped up and have each made a case to stay in the lineup. Y...
The New York Islanders are in Montreal tonight to face off against a less than impressive Montreal Canadiens squad.
After a tough start to their season, General Manager, Pierre Gauthier, has brought in veteran blue liner, Tomas Kaberle, in an attempt to save the season. While this may be a band-aid to most Habs fans, there is no doubt his presence will give a boost to the teams power play. In his debut, over the weekend, Kaberle contributed on both of the Habs goals, the first coming on the power play. Will he keep it up tonight?
The Islanders come into tonight's contest with a 4-3-3 record in their last ten games. As bad as that may seem on ...

It's a Monday, during the middle of December, and the Montreal Canadiens are tied for eighth in the Eastern conference. 31 points after 30 games actually puts the Habs in ninth place tied with the Capitals, but we are close!

Finally got around to installing Windows XP on my new laptop so I was able to check my e-mails. I'm totally interested in Kaberle seeing our powerplay could be better and last time I checked Tomas was one of the premier defensemen in the league. Let me know what you think.

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...
