Stu Cowan: Jeff Petry has become an ironman on Canadiens' blue line

The Canadiens will play their final game of this crazy, condensed 56-game NHL season Wednesday against the Edmonton Oilers at the Bell Centre (5 p.m., TSN2, RDS, TSN 690 Radio, 98.5 FM). This season has been an endurance test for the Canadiens with the final 25 games being played over 44 days.

Jeff Petry’s finesse was a welcome change on the Canadiens’ blue line

Jeff Petry’s finesse was a welcome change on the Canadiens’ blue line

Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports On Saturday night, Jeff Petry reminded everyone just how good he can be. Against the Winnipeg Jets, the Montreal Canadiens leaned on a monstrous showing by Nick Suzuki and Joel Armia to fuel the comeback victory. On Saturday night, it was Jeff Petry’s turn, and despite a 24-game goalless drought, the alternate captain stepped up in a massive way. We’ll get the obvious thing out of the way first: Cole Caufield scored the overtime winner, but without the brilliant work to get the puck to him it could be a different story. Petry brings the...

Recap: Bilbo begins his tale

Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports Cole Caufield’s first career goal is befitting of an epic Hollywood movie. Timing, they, say, is everything. For a couple of games, it looked like it was only a matter of time before Cole Caufield would score his first NHL goal. He was creating chances and his confidence was growing. It finally came, at the perfect time. Caufield scored with 2:35 remaining in overtime to give the Montreal Canadiens a 3-2 win over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday night at the Bell Centre. Everything about the goal came down to timing. From Jeff Petry’s...

In the Habs' Room: 'We control our own destiny,' Jeff Petry says

Canadiens fans can be forgiven if they’re now thinking the first 10 games this season might have only been a dream. The Canadiens started the season with a 7-1-2 record while outscoring the opposition 44-27. Since then, the Canadiens have a 13-16-7 record and have been outscored 108-90. They now have a minus-1 goal...
