Max Pacioretty is the Habs' best goal scorer since Lafleur

Max Pacioretty who has been labelled a "perimeter player" "streaky" and "another Mike McPhee" scored 39 goals this season. Let's look at them all shall we? Photo credit: Sporting Charts He didn't quite get to 40 goals in the regular season, but considering he missed 9 games to injury and took almost 10 after returning to get back to his regular self, I think it's pretty safe to say we can asterisk this as a 40 goals season for Max Pacioretty. It's too bad that Pacioretty is such a soft, perimeter player, as you can see by his complete lack of shots on goal from the goalmouth area on...

Canadiens vs Rangers Top Six Minutes: Captain Clutch

Canadiens vs Rangers Top Six Minutes: Captain Clutch

A seemingly quiet game turned into a barnburner and finished with a Brian Gionta overtime penalty shot goal. Bob Cole is a national treasure. Eight minutes in, Max Pacioretty almost gets his 40th. You could hear the crowd freak out. And so goes the game, the Habs trying to get Pacioretty his 40th. Trying to get one guy to score his 40th is not a good team strategy, Habs. Carey Price, super sharp. I know, you're all shocked. That save on Rick Nash, tho. If Carey Price doesn't get a Hart nomination I will set fire to a thing. I don't know what thing yet, but I'll do it, I swear. Hahaha...

Join Our Community Montreal Canadiens Follow Join Our Community Montreal Canadiens blog Eyes On The Prize The Good: The Habs are in the playoffs and they are the only Canadian team in the playoffs at that.

Montreal Canadiens Canada's last hope for Stanley Cup, more NHL news links

By Allan Muir An annotated guide to this morning’s must-read hockey stories: • Will Canadian hockey fans rally under Montreal‘s umbrella simply because the Canadiens are the country’s only playoff-bound team? Should they? • The Habs’ Max Pacioretty could have scored his 40th goal of the season on Saturday, but he didn’t want the grief. […]

Habs' Pacioretty closing in on 40-goal season

Habs' Pacioretty closing in on 40-goal season

The Detroit net was empty with a minute and change to play Saturday, the Canadiens up 5-3, and Max Pacioretty was on the Habs bench, a yawning Red Wings cage perhaps hungry to swallow his 40th goal.
About last night …

About last night …

If Monday's provincial election is as wack-doodle bizarro as your Montreal Canadiens' most recent two wins, Quebec is going to end up governed by a coalition of Marxist-Leninists, the Flat Earth Society ... and the Max Pacioretty Fan Club. Down 3-0 after six minutes Friday night in Ottawa? No problem. The Canadiens score seven unanswered goals – including three by Magic Max. A 3-0 lead over Detroit evaporates in less than eight third-period minutes Saturday night at the Bell Centre? No problem. The G&G guys – Brian Gionta and Alex Galchenyuk – slow the Red Wings' flight to the...

Hickey: Pacioretty praises Vanek on game play

SUNRISE, Fla. — Max Pacioretty said he knew Thomas Vanek could score goals, but he has discovered that his newest linemate has other talents. “I thought he was just a scorer but he’s an unbelievable playmaker,” Pacioretty said after the Canadiens defeated the Florida Panthers 4-1 Saturday night.

Canadiens vs. Panthers Top six minutes: Habs win eight straight

The Pacioretty, Vanek, and Desharnais line powered the Habs to victory with all four goals. WOOOOOOOOO! Douglas Murray draws back into the lineup!! MUCH EXCITE!!! Who doesn't love sarcasm. Mr. Therrien, what do you expect Douglas Murray to do for this team tonight? Max Pacioretty will never score on a penalty shot, and apparently breakaways too. Apparently everything is a penalty. Literally everything. Being short handed for the first 5 minutes of the game is fun, eh? Who doesn't love that? It's painfully obvious that the Habs are better. It literally hurts. Even more than being...
