Canadiens focus on the powerplay during practice

The Habs spent time working on their woeful powerplay this morning The first news we received this morning was that Carey Price will be facing the Penguins. Carey Price vs Penguins #tvasports— Renaud Lavoie (@renlavoietva) January 18, 2017 The injured players (Andrei Markov, David Desharnais, Brendan Gallagher, and Greg Pateryn) did not take part in practice this morning. The most interesting aspect that came from the morning skate was the powerplay units. The Habs practiced with four forwards on the first wave, with Alex Galchenyuk playing at the point. #Habs: La 1re vague en...

Canadiens vs. Red Wings Game Thread, lines, rosters, and how to watch

Habs look to make it two wins in a row against another Original Six rival It’s been an up and down week for the Canadiens, as they’ve been looking to get back on track. A 7-1 loss to Minnesota was followed up by a strong statement win against the New York Rangers, and today’s matchup gives the Habs good opportunity to get momentum back in their favour. The Habs currently sit third in the Eastern Conference standings, and are slowly returning to health after being decimated by injuries to key players. Alex Galchenyuk had a goal in his return, and looked as if he didn’t miss a game....

Canadiens vs. Rangers 10 Takeaways: Willing their way to a win

The Habs turned their fortunes around with an excellent third period. The Montreal Canadiens returned home for just their second game at the Bell Centre in their last 11 contests. A few players joined them when they arrived, and both Andrew Shaw and Alex Galchenyuk had a major impact on Saturday night’s game, though in very different ways. An early disallowed goal Perhaps Shaw’s acting skills were a little rusty after a lengthy stint off the stage, and that made his embellishment as he fell into New York Rangers starter Antti Raanta a bit too obvious. On that play, at least you can say...

Canadiens vs. Rangers game recap: The King Dethroned

When you let Alexei Emelin and Brian Flynn score, you probably deserve to lose. With the long-awaited return of Alex Galchenyuk and Andrew Shaw, the Montreal Canadiens had what finally looked like a real top-six composition. The hope was, of course, that their returns would stop the team’s struggles it has had in recent games. The beginning of the game was a bit choppy, with both teams having time in each other’s zone, but both teams also having trouble finishing passes cleanly.

Galchenyuk and Shaw return to the lineup for an Original Six Matchup Following a rough loss to the Wild a few nights ago, the Canadiens look to get back on track against one of their closest competitors in the Eastern Conference.
