Canadiens vs Oilers Top Six Minutes: Habs boil the Oil

The Canadiens have apparently decided they're just not gonna take it anymore. In the first of a weekend afternoon back-to-back, the Habs snap their losing streak and down the Oil 5-1 at the Bell Centre. That's right - five goals! Time to tank. Time to shut Carey Price down. Shelve the best goalie in the world, and hope to finish in last place to get the opportunity of the first pick in the draft. OR consider, as pointed out yesterday by P.K. Subban, that there is still a lot of hockey yet to be played, and the last time I checked, the playoff season doesn't begin until April. The...

Montreal Canadiens Organizational Injury Report

Playing well for the Habs? Get injured. Carey Price (G, NHL): the team remains mum on the true nature of Carey Price's injury, however the word on the street is that Price suffered a knee injury, and the organization chose a non-invasive recovery rather than undergoing surgery and ending his season. A video that surfaced recently from an on-ice session showed Carey Price labouring heavily to skate on his right leg. Although a recent video shows him practicing his lateral movement. At this point of the season, and given Montreal's fortunes, it may be best to shut him down for the rest of...

It's time to shut down Carey Price for the season

With the season hanging in the balance, the focus has shifted to whether or not Price will be able to return in time to salvage the Canadiens. Carey Price was injured October 29th against the Edmonton Oilers. He returned November 20th against the Islanders, and re-aggravated November 25th against Rangers. You would be hard pressed to argue against the idea that the Canadiens mismanaged his recovery. At this point, with only a 12.5% chance to make the playoffs, the Habs would be wise to remove all pressure from their star netminder, and allow him to heal at his own pace. Seeing Price skate...

Canadiens vs. Blue Jackets Game Thread, roster, lines, and how to watch

Can the Canadiens win consecutive games for the first time since November? The Habs pulled out a win in Toronto Saturday night, putting a stop to their second-longest losing streak of the season. It was not easy: the Habs gave up a two-goal lead to the Leafs and if not for a couple of saves from Mike Condon in overtime, could have left Toronto with their sixth loss in a row instead of the two points they desperately needed. The Canadiens are now three points out of a playoff spot, among a clump of teams separated by five points between third and twelfth place. With Carey Price's return...
