Jeff Petry continues to haunt the Edmonton Oilers half a decade later

Perry Nelson-USA TODAY Sports One of Marc Bergevin’s best trades continues to sting the team on the other end. The Montreal Canadiens have struggled against the Edmonton Oilers in recent memory. For whatever reason, even Carey Price hadn’t performed up to his expected level against the Alberta club in the past. Someone who has always come to play against the Oilers, and did so again on Saturday, was Jeff Petry, who was acquired for magic beans in 2015. As Sportnet’s Eric Engels points out, since coming to Montreal, Petry has feasted on the Oilers in a big...

In the Habs' Room: Price gets credit for holding off high-octane Oilers

There was an anxious moment when Connor McDavid had a breakaway while the Canadiens were nursing a 1-0 lead late in the first period of Saturday’s game at Rogers Place. But Brendan Gallagher said he was confident goaltender Carey Price was going to make the save. “Probably the best player in the world coming down on him, but you’re sitting on the bench and you just know he’s going to make the save,”...

Canadiens score a gusher of goals to beat Oilers

Carey Price made 34 saves and Jeff Petry and Tomas Tatar each scored two goals as the Canadiens rolled to a 5-1 victory over the Edmonton Oilers Saturday at Rogers Place.

Canadiens Notebook: Goalie Carey Price has different look this season

When the Canadiens opened the NHL regular season Wednesday night in Toronto, goalie Carey Price was wearing a new mask, along with new pads and gloves that were bright red. When the Canadiens practised Friday morning in Edmonton, Price had switched to white pads and gloves with red and blue in them. On the first day of training camp, Price was wearing a plain white mask with the red pads and gloves. When...

Stu Cowan: Artist draws on history for Carey Price's futuristic mask

It has been very strange watching the Canadiens’ Carey Price with a plain white mask during training camp, which makes him look like a beer-league goalie. But don’t worry, Price has a new mask ready for the NHL season opener Wednesday in Toronto (7 p.m., SN, TVA Sports, TSN 690 Radio) and it’s very, very cool. ...

Montreal Canadiens: Ranking The Canadian Division Team’s Defensemen

A peek inside Carey Price's head: New goalie mask radically redesigned

The Canadiens acquired Jake Allen during the off-season to take some of the workload off No. 1 goaltender Carey Price. As the Canadiens opened their training camp at the Bell Sports Complex in Brossard Monday, Price gave the impression that rest isn’t part of his DNA, but he is resigned to the fact the Canadiens are the latest team to embrace the idea of using two goaltenders regularly. “It’s definitely...
