The Canadiens are struggling to score, but it's not from a lack of opportunities

Montreal only managed to score nine even-strength goals during their series with the Senators, but if we dig a little there's a silver lining to the scoring woes. Why aren't the Habs scoring? It's the question most fans are asking right now as the team prepares to face either the Red Wings or the Lightning in the second round. Dale Weise is the only forward with more than one 5 vs 5 goal, leaving the top-six with a paltry scoring record of four goals over six games. Simply put, that's not a healthy number, however the fact remains that almost every player on the team is participating in...

Canadiens vs Senators third period thread

Carey Price is playing like an MVP. The Senators started the 2nd period on a mission, getting 5 shot attempts and allowing 0 before Cody Ceci drew a holding penalty from David Desharnais. The Ottawa powerplay went to work forcing some huge saves from Carey Price and it would take 6 minutes for the Habs to get their first attempt on Craig Anderson. Some line juggling from both coaches saw 4th liners upgraded to first line duties, with both Mike Hoffman and Dale Weise finding time on their respective teams 1st lines. As the game progressed both sides were having trouble finding open ice with...

Learn to score like Dale Weise

A lot of things went right for the Habs winger on Sunday night. We take a look at his strange(ly effective) offensive style. Dale Weise is one of the more interesting fourth-line players in the league. Usually, an NHL team's bottom-three is reserved for young players on their way up (ex: Michael Bournival), aging defensive specialists (ex: Manny Malhotra) or dedicated face-punchers (ex: George Parros). But Weise does not fit that mold. The 26 year-old is in the prime of his career, doesn't play very good defense, and actually scores quite a bit for a depth winger. Here's a look at his HERO...

Canadiens vs Senators game three recap: Dale Weise is the hero of his own story

There's something special about the story Dale Weise is writing, and it had another great chapter on Sunday night. He's called many things, folk hero, Dutch Gretzky, but what Dale Weise might be is the unlikeliest character in a great story. Weise is a weird player, there can be no doubt about that. For most of his career Weise has been pigeonholed into fourth line roles, where he doesn't really fit, because he's not really that physical, and he's not great defensively. Weise fashions himself as a skilled player, but he isn't really that skilled, and doesn't fit into the top-six either. ...

Dale Weise scores in overtime, Canadiens lead series 3-0

The magic never ends with Dutch Gretzky! Who else? Seriously. Who else was it gonna be? Dale Weise gives the Montreal Canadiens a 3-0 series lead over the Ottawa Senators in overtime. I'm not sure how he does it, but Dale Weise has repeatedly proven that he is clutch. It's been over a year now that he's been doing this. Weise gives the Canadiens a commanding lead in this series, and somehow I don't think the Senators are last year's Los Angeles Kings. The Hamburglar story was ended by the Canadiens, next up: The Sens. Here's another look at the Weise goal: Follow @PeteBlackburn

Dale Weise scores to tie game three

Who else would come through in the clutch besides Dutch Gretzky? The Montreal Canadiens are trailing by one late in the third period, who else would anyone expect to tie the game than Dutch Gretzky himself, Dale Weise? Weise has had a very strong series with Lars Eller, but it was actually a shift with Torrey Mitchell and Brandon Prust with a strong net drive that finally broke Craig Anderson. Somehow Weise is always in the right place at the right time, and he scores yet another huge goal in the playoffs. No one can take that away from him. Having the presence of mind to calmly glove...

Dale Weise wins Jacques Beauchamp Award

With a season that smashed all expectations of the young grinder, Dale Weise has been voted the Habs' unsung hero. With two games remaining on the schedule, Dale Weise has 10 goals and 19 assists in 77 games in 2014-15. That doesn't count a goal that likely should be added to his stats from a few games ago, where he tipped a Jeff Petry shot that went in. Currently Petry still has the goal, and it's unlikely to change now, but Weise got a stick on it. 29 points isn't the most impressive mark in the NHL, but on a low scoring team, for a player who had 30 points in his previous 179 games,...
