2015-2016 Season Preview: Montreal Canadiens

The Montreal Canadiens enjoyed a wonderful regular season in 2014-2015, pulling off a 50-22-10 record to lead the Atlantic Division. They were second in the Eastern Conference, three points behind the New York Rangers. They scored 214 goals and allowed a meagre 184 goals, making them the stingiest team in the National Hockey League. This […]

Lafleur: Brendan Gallagher’s the Man

Montreal Canadiens forward Brendan Gallagher received an awfully nice stamp of approval on Wednesday as hockey legend and Habs ambassador Guy Lafleur cited the 23-year-old as an ideal candidate for the captaincy. “A captain shouldn’t be chosen on the amount of goals he’s going to score.” Lafleur said. “[Gallagher] really impressed me every night I […]

Tampa Bay Eliminates Montreal Canadiens in Game Six

The Tampa Bay Lightning have knocked off the Montreal Canadiens with a 4-1 Tuesday night victory that saw them close out the series four games to two. Tampa forward Nikita Kucherov had two goals and an assist in the win, while Steven Stamkos emerged with a goal. Ondrej Palat had a goal and an assist […]

The Stamkos Struggle: Can the Habs Keep Up the Good Work?

Those scoring at home know that something is wrong with Steven Stamkos. The Tampa Bay Lightning forward has yet to score a goal in eight playoff games. He only has three points, despite 25 shots on goal. For the Montreal Canadiens, this inefficacy has been a good thing. Stamkos wasn’t a factor in Game One […]

Montreal Canadiens End Ottawa’s Playoff Hopes

The Ottawa Senators fought valiantly and had an implausible season at times, but it was down to Carey Price and the Montreal Canadiens.

Playoff Preview: Montreal Canadiens vs. Ottawa Senators

The Ottawa Senators have climbed Mount Improbable and will face the Montreal Canadiens in the first round of the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Interestingly, this is quite possibly the best case scenario for the Senators. Ottawa has won the past three of their games against the Habs, outscoring them 13-5. What’s more, the only post-season […]

Happy, Not Satisfied: Habs Clinch Playoff Berth

It was Max Pacioretty who sealed the deal for the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night, scoring the overtime winner that propelled his hockey club over the Florida Panthers and granting his Habs a berth in the playoffs. The best part? He wasn’t even aware of the implications of his goal. “Actually I probably should have […]

Carey Price Continues to Amaze

“He’s arguably been the best player in the league in helping his team to where they are at this point,” Steven Stamkos says of Carey Price and the Montreal Canadiens. “They’re a solid team. They play structured. But their goalie made some big saves.” It seems that everyone these days is talking about the Habs’ […]

The Montreal Canadiens have been busy leading up to the NHL trade deadline and general manager Marc Bergevin has made yet another move by acquiring Torrey Mitchell from the Buffalo Sabres.
