Flyers look to avoid Turkey hangover against Habs

The last time the Philadelphia Flyers and Montreal Canadiens met, things didn’t play out the way the Flyers would have liked them to.
Montreal came into the game with a 1-5-2 record and had yet to win a game at home.That changed following the Flyers visit to Bell Centre.

Coming into tonight’s head-to-head with the Hurricanes, the Montreal Canadiens hadn’t put two of anything together since the Western road trip that saw them beat the Coyotes and Predators two weeks ago. And it stopped there.

In the first period of this game, a significant portion of Habs’ fans had their eyes on the Bruins/Sabres rematch, and it was difficult to blame them.  Jiri Tlusty opened the scoring within the first minute of the game and Anthony Stewart made it 2-0 for the Hurricanes at the 6-minute mark.  For the remainder of the opening frame, the Can...

Game Day : Habs @ Hurricanes

The Montreal Canadiens are in Raleigh, North Carolina to take on the Hurricanes for the second time this season.  The Habs were victorious in the first meeting and hope they can walk out of RBC center with a 2-0 lead on the 4 game season series.  

Tonight will mark the first time Erik Cole has returned to Carolina to face his former team after being acquired by the Canadiens this past summer.  In their first meeting, at the Bell Center, Cole was able to get under the skin of a few of his former teammates and was actually caught taunting Tuomo Ruutu on camera.  Although it was clear that Cole was being as comical as he was being serious, it was still something tha...

Habs and Bruins Fans Mix It Up At The Bell Centre

When the Boston Bruins are in town, you can bet that things are bound to get a little... eventful. In fact, you'd be hard pressed to find a game between the two teams that doesn't feature some sort of controversial incident. We don't need to remind you about what happened last March between these two teams, or their countless playoff series against each other.

So, last night, with the Bruins at the Bell Centre, and a hotly contested 1-0 game at stake, something felt like it was in the air, as if things were about to go down.

The only problem is that what happened next wasn't on the ice, as you'd expect, but in the stands. The following video, courtesy of (w...

Tim Thomas Just Keeps Getting Better And Better

Boston Bruins 1 Montreal Canadiens 0

Tim Thomas just keeps getting better and better and probably wishes the Habs were his opponent everynight

After tonight’s one goal, the lone goal, victory against the Habs the Boston Bruins have won nine in a row.  How did they win the game?  It was very simple:  the coaching staff decided to start Tim Thomas in nets.  Thomas did the rest.

The Bruins only managed eighteen shots on Carey Price.  Price didn’t have to play spectacular but he did come up with a few big saves.  The only one he let by was one by Andrew Ference in the first period.  Yes the same Ference who will always be remembered fo...

Game Day : Bruins @ Habs

The Boston Bruins are in La Belle Province tonight to sqaure off against the Montreal Canadiens in what could be the Bruins 9th win in a row.  

The Bruins seem to be an unstoppable force right now in the Eastern conference, but do not count the Habs out of this one just yet.  The Canadiens are leading the season series 2-,0 and goaltender Carey Price is as hot as they get, having not let in a single goal in his last two outings.  There is always a story behind every Habs and Bruins game, and tonight will be no different.  

What needs to be clear about the Bruins current 8 game winning steak is the amount of offensive production the team has come up with. &n...

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...

New York Rangers Vs. Montreal Canadiens

Bell Centre

Montreal, Quebec

The New York Rangers come in winners of seven in a row.  Coach John Tortorella has the team driving on all cylinders and even Sean Avery is playing, yes just playing.  Is it smoke and mirrors or is the team actually good?  Well for now, let’s just say the team is working hard.  The players who are supposed to score are scoring and Henrik Lundqvist is keeping them in every game. 

The Montreal Canadiens welcome the Rangers after visiting the other New York team on Thursday.  Coming off a less than stellar effort on the Island, the team will be encoura...

Nabokov's Injury May Increase His Value

Evgeni Nabokov was excellent in the Islanders 4-2 loss to the New York Rangers on Tuesday night and earned another start against the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday, but he would never make it to the end as he left in the first period with a groin injury. Rick DiPietro came in relief for the win with fans left wondering how serious the injury would be to the team's most valuable trading chip. After being re-evaluated, Nabokov has been placed on the IR retroactive to November 17th. 

Groin injuries can be tricky, especially for goaltenders. Although he is a forward, Nino Niederreiter missed near to a month of playing time after suffering a groin injury in the pre-season. ...

Islanders End Slide, Defeat Canadiens

The Islanders scored four goals in the second period and held off some late game pressure and defeated the Montreal Canadiens by a score of 4-3.   Rick DiPietro got the win in relief of Evgeni Nabokov, who left the ice just 7:55 into the first period due to an apparent lower body injury.  Nabokov is said to have a hamstring issue, and will be evaluated today.

The first shot against DiPietro came on a power play, and as has been the Islanders luck so far this season, the shot beat him.  However, in a new turn of events for the Islanders and their luck, this time the post was there to back DiPietro up, and the Islanders killed off the power play unscathed.
