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...

Some good news for the Habs on the injury front After skating alone yesterday in Brossard as the team had the day off, Paul Byron and Andrew Shaw skated with their teammates ahead of their game against the Washington Capitals on Monday. Also of note (perhaps more noteworthy), Alex Galchenyuk and Andrei Markov also skated in their regular jerseys after donning non-contact ones when they practiced with the team in Toronto. At the time Michel Therrien said that Galchenyuk could return as soon as next week and, well, it is Monday. Andrei Markov et Alex Galchenyuk participent aussi à...

Injury Updates: Paul Byron and Andrew Shaw skating again

The division-leading Canadiens are about to get some players back after a spate of injuries. The Canadiens have dealt with a difficult injury situation very well, with a 6-2-2 record in the last 10 games and currently riding a three-game win streak. The injuries have allowed the club to evaluate the progress of some of their young prospects, and last night the rookies showed their skills. Those on the injured list are slowly approaching a return to restore the Canadiens to the NHL club that started the season. After Alex Galchenyuk and Andrei Markov practised with the team earlier in the...

Alex Galchenyuk and Andrei Markov to rejoin Canadiens in Toronto

The Canadiens finally receive some good news on the injury front After losing Brendan Gallagher and Paul Byron last night in a win against the Dallas Stars, the Montreal Canadiens have finally received some good news on the injury front: Alex Galchenyuk and Andrei Markov are both scheduled to join the Habs in Toronto today to practice with the team tomorrow. In regards to Galchenyuk, this is huge news as the team currently is without five forwards. The St. John’s IceCaps are also struggling with injuries so things were looking desperate. He has been skating since Christmas break ended...

Canadiens vs. Lightning game recap: Sloppy defending costs the Habs a point

Canadiens vs. Lightning game recap: Sloppy defending costs the Habs a point

The Canadiens start out strong but fall to the Lightning in overtime. Two injury-riddled teams met in their first games back after the holiday break, but the Tampa Bay Lightning appeared to be the more prepared team as they hosted the Montreal Canadiens. The Habs continue to soldier on without Alex Galchenyuk, David Desharnais, Andrew Shaw, and Andrei Markov while enjoying the return of Alexei Emelin, who missed the previous two games for the birth of his third child. The Lightning, for their part, welcomed back Nikita Kucherov and Ondrej Palat to their lineup, while going without the...

Montreal Canadiens recall defenceman Ryan Johnston from St. John’s IceCaps

With Andrei Markov staying in Montreal, the Habs get some insurance on defence.

Andrei Markov did not travel to Florida with the Montreal Canadiens

Andrei Markov did not travel to Florida with the Montreal Canadiens

The 38-year-old veteran remains out with a lower-body injury. The Montreal Canadiens got in their first practice skate after the holiday break this afternoon, and Andrei Markov’s was the most notable absence from the ice. Injured Desharnais, Pateryn, Galchenyuk, Markov, Shaw did not accompany #Habs to Florida today— Dave Stubbs (@Dave_Stubbs) December 27, 2016 It’s unknown when the injury occurred, as there was no video evidence of the event. By not making the trip south, Markov will likely be out of action until at least January 7 when Montreal returns to Canada to take on the...

Canadiens vs. Wild 10 takeaways: HabsCaps cannot freeze the winning streak

It wasn’t a bad game at the Bell Center, but it wasn’t a great one, and the Canadiens took a 4-2 loss to Minnesota in the final home game of 2016. 1. Paging a doctor, any doctor will do! If there’s a wish the Canadiens will be most excitedly wishing for this holiday season, it’s for the gift of Pacioretty-like speedy recovery for all. Andrei Markov is now officially on the IR, Alexei Emelin is out, and Greg Pateryn is still going to miss significant time with a fractured ankle. That’s just the defence! Try as they might, the many fresh faces who’ve been called up can do the job...
