Canadiens vs Hurricanes recap: Galchenyuk's hat-trick sinks Carolina

Galchenyuk's first career hat-trick lifted the Montreal Canadiens to a 4-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. And boy was it pretty! When David Desharnais' pretty deke drew Cam Ward from his net opening up Brandon Prust for the first goal of the game, I got the feeling David was going to have a good game. Apart from a soft play on Carolina's only goal scorer of the night, Victor Rask, he did. Photo credit: hockeystats.ca But it was Alex Galchenyuk that stole the show with his first career hat-trick to sink the Hurricanes in a 4-1 win. Playing only 14 minutes, four less than the...

Canadiens vs Hurricanes third period thread

Canes outshoot Habs in 2nd, but still come up short. Galchenyuk puts Canadiens up 2-0 When will we as Canadiens fans just learn to trust in Andrei Markov? We thought he was going South on us and then... that pass! And then Pacioretty's pass and then Alex Galchenyuk's goal. It's like we have elite offensive talent on this team or something. And Carolina is lacking in the elite offensive talent department. Lots of unconverted power play chances and lots of squandered shots. It's easy to see why this team is languishing in the basement. For all these great Shugg jokes tonight, I'm not sure...

Brandon Prust imitates Alex Galchenyuk at Canadiens practice

Prust is always fooling around at practice, but for some reason this one made me burst out laughing. If you follow the Montreal Canadiens at all, you'll know that Brandon Prust likes to poke fun at P.K. Subban, Brendan Gallagher, and especially Alex Galchenyuk. At practice on Saturday, instead of the usual pranks and roughhousing, Prust decided to imitate Galchenyuk during drills, it's a must see. I'd say he's got Galchenyuk nailed there. So many head fakes and shoulder drops! If only Prust could keep the puck on his stick during it, he'd really be onto something. Follow @AndrewBerkshire

Brendan Gallagher would never let us down. Habs apply pressure in the second and Honey Badger comes through with a hard fought goal of his own. 1-1 after two periods. Join Our Community Montreal Canadiens blog Eyes On The Prize You'd think that with Gallagher's contract extension, he'd be able to buy a goal... but he doesn't need to cuz our little buddy very clearly earned that goal. It was touch and go there for a bit, but the truth won out. Gallagher notched his sixth to celebrate his six year extension. And he spread the wealth! Bryan Allen and Alex Galchenyuk both picked up...

Breaking down film: The big hit isn't always the best option

Everyone loves a big hit, right? Well, not everyone. Probably not goalies. First off, my apologies for the lack of a header picture, the photo editor is a bit wonky at the moment. The Canadiens were trounced on Sunday night versus the Rangers, thanks to an endless stream of mistakes by several players. Let's take a look at the play that kicked off the horrible night for the Habs. On the replay it seems simple enough. Tanner Glass gets a stick on Alex Galchenyuk's clearing attempt, and Dominic Moore reaped the reward. Right? But why is Alex Galchenyuk the last-man back anyhow?  Let's take a...
