Isles overpower Canadiens

Isles overpower Canadiens

The skinny: Forget that notion of the Canadiens going into the playoffs with some momentum. The Canadiens looked like anything but a Stanley Cup contender Thursday night as they dropped a 2-0 decision to a New York Islanders team that had 11 rookies in uniform. The Canadiens had targeted this game as a must-win. They left goaltender Carey Price and defencemen Andrei Markov and Alexei Emelin in Montreal to rest while they travelled to Chicago for a game Wednesday night. The Canadiens were outshot 10-2 to start the game and were on the short end of a 30-19 spread at game’s end. The disparity...

Gorges returns to the lineup as the Habs blow into Chicago, Price, Markov, and Emelin to rest. Join Our Community Montreal Canadiens Follow Join Our Community Montreal Canadiens blog Eyes On The Prize The good news is that Josh Gorges is back and the Blackhawks are without the services of Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews.

Price, Markov, & Emelin not traveling to Chicago to face Blackhawks

There were rumblings earlier, but it's now confirmed that the Habs are resting some players. With the Canadiens in a very good spot in the standings, now favourites to secure home ice in the first round of the playoffs against the Tampa Bay Lightning, Michel Therrien has made a hard, and gutsy call today, choosing to rest Andrei Markov, Carey Price, and Alexei Emelin against the reigning Stanley Cup champions, the Chicago Blackhawks. They won't travel with the team to Chicago, waiting in Montreal for the team to return, along with the New York Islanders on Thursday. Resting Andrei Markov is...
