Canadiens vs Devils recap: Galchenyuk scores two, but the Habs fall in OT

It was a crazy good night for Alex Galchenyuk, but the Canadiens couldn't hang on to the two-goal lead he gave them. Less than 24 hours after winning a shootout against the Devils in New Jersey, the Canadiens traveled back to Montreal looking to get a second win against the same team on home ice. Mike Condon would get his second start in as many nights, as the team is of course still without the services of Carey Price. Image Credit: HockeyStats.ca Much like the first meeting, the game wasn't exactly action packed in the early goings. Despite outshooting the Devils 10-5, the...

Canadiens vs. Devils third period thread

Alex Galchenyuk has given the Habs the lead. It's 1-0 heading into the third period. The Devils came out strong to begin the second period, mounting an attack of nine shot attempts to the Canadiens three within the first five minutes of the period. The Devils were using their usual lulling strategy to eliminate any willful enthusiasm from their opposition. The Habs looked like they were playing in quicksand. The Devils had mounted a 10-2 lead for the period in shots on goal when Greg Pateryn unloaded a shot from the point that bounced off of Alex Galchenyuk's chest for his fourth goal in...

Canadiens vs. Devils: Game Thread, roster, lines, and how to watch

The Habs and Devils are back in action tonight at the Bell Centre to complete their home-and-home series. Last night, Alex Galchenyuk elevated his team to a come-from-behind victory over the Devils that may have cemented him as an emerging top-line center. His performance, alongside strong showings from Sven Andrighetto and Mike Condon, was yet another demonstration of the layers this team has, and why they are the best team in the NHL. Much of the Canadiens success can be attributed to an ability to use adversity to put pressure on their performance. What this means, is that if they are...

Price exits early, but Canadiens rout Rangers

The Montreal Canadiens lost All-Star goalie Carey Price to an injury again Wednesday — but they didn’t lose the game. Price exited with a lower-body injury after the second period with his team leading 2-1, but the host Canadiens didn’t let up in a 5-1 win over the New York Rangers. Devante Smith-Pelly and Alex Galchenyuk scored in the opening 1:29 of the third for the Canadiens, who have handed the Rangers two of their four losses in regulation. “You want to keep your foot on the pedal,” said Smith-Pelly, who did not know Price was hurt until backup Mike Condon led the team onto...

Canadiens vs Islanders recap: Galchenyuk the hero as Habs sweep Islanders

A series of poor penalties in the third period made a result uncertain, but a timely powerplay goal by Alex Galchenyuk won the game for the Montreal Canadiens. It was a game of ups and downs, but in the end, the Montreal Canadiens ended up with the two points in a 4-2 win over the New York Islanders on Sunday night at the Bell Centre. Third-period penalties by Alexander Semin, Dale Weise and Nathan Beaulieu cost the Canadiens the lead, but it would be a Taylor Beck penalty for goaltender interference that cost the Islanders the game. Alex Galchenyuk, who couldn't buy a goal for the first 56...

Canadiens vs. Islanders: Game Thread, roster, lines, and how to watch

The Habs continue a stretch of eight games against Metropolitan Division opponents with their second game in two nights against the New York Islanders. The Habs are down two forward bodies, with Torrey Mitchell and, now, Devante Smith-Pelly both on the mend with lower-body injuries. The Canadiens' depth will get a chance to make an impression tonight, with Sven Andrighetto getting the call to play on the second line alongside Alex Galchenyuk and Lars Eller. The call-up came right after Andrighetto scored a highlight-reel overtime goal Friday night in St. John's. The injuries have also...

Canadiens vs Coyotes recap: Desert Storm

The Canadiens took on a pack of Coyotes, and the results weren't pretty. Alexander Semin was once again in the dog house as Paul Byron returned to the line-up, joining the fourth line. That move allowed Torrey Mitchell to slot in on the second line alongside Alex Galchenyuk and Lars Eller. Image Credit: HockeyStats.ca An often under-rated team, the Arizona Coyotes were looking to out-perform the Habs, led by some excellent, young talent. Early into the first period, the Coyotes saw their first power play of the game. The lowest-ranked power play team, coming in at 12.5%, went...

Botchford: Speed has killed Canucks in overtime

WINNIPEG — In a moment of open-air freedom, so rare in the NHL, Jared McCann accelerated to top speed, cutting through the defensive zone. Montreal’s Alex Galchenyuk tried to cut him off. But McCann gracefully, purposely and furiously changed direction with a 180-spin move that would have made all the Sunday highlights if he were an NFL running back.

Canadiens vs. Canucks third period thread

The Habs dominated the second period and are back in this one, down 3-2. The Canadiens went down three goals on a missed save by Mike Condon that fooled everyone including the refs who needed video assistance to determine that the puck had deflected into an upper compartment in the net. The goal was scored after Alex Galchenyuk took a bad penalty that could have seen him stapled to the bench, if not for a short-handed goal scored five minutes later by Lars Eller to put the Habs back in the game. The Great Dane's goal sparked the Canadiens. Max Pacioretty capitalized on a Brendan Gallagher...

Is Alex Semin nearing a return?

The talented forward is practicing with Alex Glachenyuk this morning. The Canadiens have a very light schedule this week, although the upside is that they have plenty of time to practice. As it stands, there's still no sign of Carey Price. #Habs: Mike Condon et Dustin Tokarski sautent sur la glace pour l’entraînement. Il n’y a pas de Carey Price pour l’instant. — J-F Chaumont (@JFChaumontJDM) November 13, 2015 Interestingly, Alexander Semin is back alongside Alex Galchenyuk.
