Canadiens Game Day: Jake Allen back in goal for Habs vs. Jets

Canadiens head coach Dominique Ducharme won’t make any changes to his lineup for Thursday night’s game at the Bell Centre against the Winnipeg Jets and that means Jake Allen will be back in goal (7 p.m., TSN2, RDS, TSN 690 Radio, 98.5 FM). Ducharme also said he’s hoping Carey Price will be able to return next week after sitting out Wednesday night’s 3-2 loss to the Maple Leafs in Toronto with a lower-body injury. Allen played well against the Leafs, making 29 saves....

Marc Bergevin had put Brendan Gallagher on LTIR, meaning that he will be out for at least the upcoming six weeks. A few hours later, it was time for the Montreal Canadiens to play their first game since the injuries to both Gallagher and Carey Price were announced. This effectively meant lineup change duty for Dominique Ducharme, who placed Jesperi Kotkaniemi on Phillip Danault’s right wing and Jake Allen between the pipes. Toronto...

Canadiens' lack of offensive punch proves costly in 3-2 loss to Leafs

It was another one of those nights when the Canadiens came close. But close, it seems, counts only in horseshoes. And it was another night when goaltender Jake Allen could have used some more offensive help. Zach Hyman’s goal midway through the third period proved to be the difference, as the Maple Leafs defeated the...

Jake Allen Set to Take the Reigns for the Montreal Canadiens

It was a hard-fought win. However, one that came with some sacrifices. Brendan Gallagher was hit with an Alexander Romanov slap shot in the first period which broke his right thumb and is expected to be out for weeks. However, it was the Carey Price news that was arguably more concerning. Price was injured early […] The post Jake Allen Set to Take the Reigns for the Montreal Canadiens appeared first on Last Word On Hockey.

Recap: One step back

Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports After two strong games, Montreal suffered a misstep on Saturday night. A red-hot Montreal Canadiens team rolled back into the Bell Centre on Saturday night for a rematch with the Ottawa Senators. On Thursday, Montreal ran roughshod over their division rivals, claiming an easy 4-1 victory with Jake Allen in the net. It was a strong showing from the suddenly resurgent top line, and a solid performance from the defence as the Habs continued to march through their condensed schedule. On Saturday they welcomed their leading goal-scorer, Tyler...

About Last Night: Habs don't fool around in 4-1 victory over Senators

The Montreal Canadiens continued their strong play following their COVID-imposed break with a 4-1 win over the Ottawa Senators Thursday night at the Canadian Tire Centre. It was the usual suspects of the team’s recent resurgence who contributed to the win: Phil Danault, Corey Perry and Brendan Gallagher all lit the lamp, while plucky penalty killers Paul Byron and Jake Evans teamed up for a trademark Hab shorty. Backup goalie Jake Allen won his first game since Feb 6. ...

By the numbers: Metrics show Canadiens better off with Price in net

Though it might seem like the 2021 NHL season just started, more than half the campaign is in the rear-view mirror. With 25 scheduled games left in the Canadiens’ season, Carey Price is still rocking an underwhelming .903 save percentage and it’s not surprising that some believe Jake Allen should be starting more games. Before the Canadiens were sidelined by COVID-19, Price was coming off...

Canadiens vs. Canucks game recap: Hard times are over

Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports It’s been very hard, but it’s getting easier now. Montreal will not end this season without an overtime win. Dominique Ducharme made three changes, two of his choosing and another one that he was forced to, from Friday night’s overtime loss. Leading Canuck slayer Tyler Toffoli picked up a lower-body injury late in that game, which sidelined him for Saturday. He was replaced in the lineup by Artturi Lehkonen, making the third line once more completely Finnish. Meanwhile, Carey Price moved into net to replace Jake Allen, while Victor Mete...

Jake Allen will be in goal for the Canadiens when they play the Vancouver Canucks Friday night at the Bell Centre (7 p.m., TSN2, RDS, TSN 690 Radio, 98.5 FM). That’s the only change Canadiens head coach Dominique Ducharme will make to his lineup following Wednesday night’s 4-3 overtime loss to the Jets in Winnipeg. That means foward Artturi Lehkonen and defenceman Victor Mete will be healthy scratches again. ...
