Thursday Habs Headlines: Finding the right spot for Alex Galchenyuk

Here are your daily links, including Markov’s reaction to tying Guy Lapointe, where Alex Galchenyuk should be playing, and a potential start for Charlie Lindgren. Montreal Canadiens News and Notes Like his predecessor, Claude Julien has had trouble finding the best spot to play Alex Galchenyuk. [RDS] Andrei Markov is being celebrated for recording his 572nd point with the Canadiens, tying him for second-place all-time among Habs blue-liners with Guy Lapointe. [NHL] The sixteen-season veteran credited his teammates and the organization for allowing him to reach this point. [La...

Canadiens vs. Senators game recap: Three out of three ain’t bad

The General defends Montreal’s position in the standings. The Montreal Canadiens faced off against the Ottawa Senators for the third time in eight days and looked to extend their lead over second place in the Atlantic Division. Both teams opened the game with early intensity, with Michael McCarron laying a solid hit on Erik Karlsson. The Senators had the better of the puck possession early on as the line of Mike Hoffman, Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Tom Pyatt tried to find an opening on net, but Carey Price kept the door shut. A high stick from Alexandre Burrows took down Alex Galchenyuk but...

A Hockey City: Playoff Preparation

Be prepared... Everyone’s so worried about how to get the most out of Alex Galchenyuk. I think the coaching staff, now with Claude Julien in the fold, is close to figuring that out... Becoming playoff ready seems to be the goal. While getting points matters, and winning games is the most ideal way to learn, of the three most likely possibilities facing them right now, I don’t think Claude Julien is really that worried about who the Habs will face in the first round…

Finding Alex Galchenyuk's best position: Centre or left wing?

Finding Alex Galchenyuk's best position: Centre or left wing?

Ideally, his move to wing is only temporary. Although they are approaching the playoffs and in good standing, it seems that the Montreal Canadiens are far from establishing what they want their full lineup to look like. They still a revolving door on the bottom defensive pairing as well as the fourth forward line. Neither of those rotations are major points of concern, as they are simply depth moves that don’t have much ability to hurt the team. The most crucial experiment lies with the top three forwards in Max Pacioretty, Alexander Radulov and Alex Galchenyuk. Ever since those three...

Canadiens vs. Hurricanes 10 Takeaways: Läck of Finish

After a good two periods, the Habs fell completely flat in the third. 1. Alex Galchenyuk on wing Well, Galchenyuk scored, so there’s that! And no, that doesn’t mean he should automatically always be a winger from now on. It’s one game, and let’s not forget he played centre all through December when he went on an absolute tear. Plus, his goal and several of his chances came from centre ice. However, as a line, Galchenyuk, Andrew Shaw, and Artturi Lehkonen seems to be well suited to each other, regardless of who was playing where. 2. Speaking of Shaw... He continues to play really...

Canadiens vs. Hurricanes Recap: Frustrated At Home

The Canadiens lose their second game in a row at the Bell Centre to a non-playoff opponent. The Canadiens did not want to let more points against a non-playoff opponent slip away from them, but that’s exactly what they would do. It started off well for them, with Alex Galchenyuk almost making his move to the wing pay immediate dividends as he found himself with the puck facing an open net only to be robbed by the sprawling block of Hurricanes’ forward Derek Ryan. Galchenyuk would get a second chance at glory a couple of shifts later. After Jordie Benn laid out Jaccob Slavin with a...

Canadiens player gets stick stuck in opponent’s visor, awkward wriggling ensues

Canadiens player gets stick stuck in opponent’s visor, awkward wriggling ensues

Welcome to the NHL, rookie? The NHL requires players to wear visors now, which is smart. You should protect your eyeballs. But there’s a nice little space in between visors and the actual helmet. And sometimes it gets speared like a fish in the Bronze Age. Just ask Calgary Flames rookie Matthew Tkachuk, who was just minding his own puck battle business when Montreal Canadiens center Alex Galchenyuk made things very confusing for the rookie. Whoops! Luckily Tkachuk wasn’t hurt even though he was thrashing around like a Magikarp dropped onto a dock. (Hey, 90’s kids.)

Canadiens vs. Rangers game recap: The Habs take a bite out of the Big Apple

The Habs’s offence went to town in New York City, earning a fifth straight win. The Montreal Canadiens seem to have their swagger back. They headed into the matchup with the New York Rangers riding a four-game winning streak, having Carey Price back in top form, and Alex Galchenyuk beginning to find his rhythm with five points (3G, 2A) in those last four games. Thanks to all of those factors, the Canadiens held their place at the top of the Atlantic Division and gave themselves a little breathing room.

The Habs are looking to extend their win streak in the Big Apple. Don’t look now, but the Montreal Canadiens have got themselves a win streak going. The Habs are winners of four in a row, with their latest win coming against P.K. Subban’s Nashville Predators. Alex Galchenyuk leads the team with five points in that stretch, followed closely by Max Pacioretty and Alexander Radulov (who is day-to-day with a lower-body injury), each with four apiece.
