Lehkonen’s disallowed goal provided the spark Habs couldn’t muster on their own

The Canadiens weren’t fully engaged through 40 minutes of play, but a controversial call got the blood pumping. The Montreal Canadiens opened the scoring early in the first, but the Ottawa Senators immediately responded, and the game settled into a lull with few completed passes, let alone dangerous scoring chances. Despite a few battles between Brady Tkachuk and Brendan Gallagher, the game was largely emotionless, which is a rare occurence in the recent history of this rivaly. Clearly the better team, the Habs controlled the pace despite only firing on a few cylinders. Yet a goal from...

TSM: Habs Weather the Storm

Montreal gets the win in a high-scoring game against Carolina. For our new readers and members, the Top Six Minutes is a continuation of the discussion in the game thread. We try to keep it light and entertaining. Full recaps are up the morning after every game. First Period Max Domi does some fancy stick-handling early on. Brendan Gallagher matches it with a nice spinning pass. Looks like the boys have been practising for the Habs skills competition. Jesperi Kotkaniemi does not seem like the kind of guy who should be in the penalty box. He should be in the Mickey Mouse club. Or a...

It’s time for Jesperi Kotkaniemi to be given a bigger role

It’s time for Jesperi Kotkaniemi to be given a bigger role

The rookie on the verge of a breakout, and the Canadiens need to capitalize on it. The Montreal Canadiens are surprising a lot of people this season. They’re playing consistently good-to-great team hockey, they got Shea Weber back from injury, and they have a solid top-nine forward core that they can shuffle with ease. While Max Domi and Jonathan Drouin have been firmly in the limelight for their outstanding efforts so far, and the trio of Brendan Gallagher, Phillip Danault, and Tomas Tatar continue to be a force, there is one more surprising piece of the team that should garner more...

Byron converted a lovely Phillip Danault feed 11 minutes into the second period to give the Canadiens the lead. Five minutes later, Jonathan Drouin set up the 100th goal of Andrew Shaw’s career. But Colin White’s late-period power-play goal set […]

Brendan Gallagher spears Kevan Miller below the belt

Surely there will be great wailing and grinding of teeth over this, right? Right? Brendan Gallagher tries really hard to be the Montreal Canadiens’ version of Brad Marchand. He’s not as good a player as Marchand, and isn’t really as good at agitating either, but he can take cheap shots that would make Marchand proud. Case in point: this bit of stickwork on Kevan Miller as time expired in the first period. Brendan Gallagher gets Kevan Miller below the belt right as time expires. pic.twitter.com/kjrAJ1hAIt— Conor Ryan (@ConorRyan_93) November 25, 2018 A couple other angles: So...

His kick earlier in the period was frowned upon, but a more conventional method worked to put the Habs on the board. After having one disallowed, Brendan Gallagher gets in close and releases a wrist shot for a goal that can’t be overturned.
