Photo by Derek Leung/ Jake Allen is likely has a warrant out for his arrest in Alberta for grand larceny. When the Montreal Canadiens lost to the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday, it was after 60 minutes of hockey where they probably did enough to win. The complete opposite was true on Thursday, as the Calgary Flames dominated the Habs from pillar to post, but the hockey gods karmically willed the Tricolore to a win. And the hockey gods used Jake Allen as their instrument of karma. Jake, what did you eat today, buddy. pic.twitter.com/kO2BwsgOsk— Matt Drake (@DrakeMT)...

Montreal Canadiens: Cayden Primeau Injured While Sitting On The Bench

Montreal Canadiens goaltenders Jake Allen and Sam Montembeault have provided the team with pretty steady netminding so far this season. It is a big part of the reason the team is performing better than expected.

What will happen when Nick Suzuki’s hot streak ends?

Photo by Minas Panagiotakis/ Could the supposedly inevitable crash be much gentler than anticipated? With all due respect to Jake Allen and Samuel Montembeault, it’s hard to argue against the notion that Nick Suzuki and Cole Caufield are the biggest drivers of the Montreal Canadiens’ early-season success. Going into Saturday, Suzuki and Caufield have 17 and 15 points, respectively. New linemate Kirby Dach has 12, and then the next highest is Mike Hoffman ... with five. Suzuki and Caufield’s nine and eight goals more than double Dach and Hoffman’s four. Given...

BSM 13: Jake Allen’s trade value is on the rise

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports Their starting goaltender’s early season performance might make him their best bargaining chip. The Montreal Canadiens had no business beating the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night. The officiating was atrociously one-sided in favour of Detroit, and even when the Habs weren’t being paraded to the box, they were outplayed by the home team at even-strength as well. Even with perfect officiating — assuming that exists — it still would have been incredibly difficult to win. But with everything pointing to a loss, Jake Allen...
