Report: Max Pacioretty played through broken foot

Eric Engels said the Canadiens captain has dealt with an undisclosed injury Eric Engels unleashed a bombshell during the first intermission broadcast with Kyle Bukauskas that Max Pacioretty played through a broken foot in November. Much has been said about the struggles of the Habs’ captain, and this would explain that quite a bit. Pacioretty has seven goals and 11 assists this season in 26 games.

Montreal Canadiens news and notes The Canadiens’ early-December schedule looks significantly different from that of seasons past, but this year, the Habs’ grueling California trip comes at a great time, rather than at the tail end of a long season.

Canadiens vs. Senators game recap: Price served his first regulation loss of the season

The Habs came up short in a last-goal-wins contest versus their highway rivals In a division rivalry matchup, the Montreal Canadiens took to the Bell Centre ice to face off against the Ottawa Senators after two days off, looking for a win during their 20th game of the season.

The first frame started out with subdued action at both ends of the ice, as each...

Canadiens vs. Panthers 10 Takeaways: Paul Byron’s emergence

The Habs didn’t get the bounces in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Panthers 1. The line-up With Alex Radulov sick and sidelined, it was time for Michel Therrien to get creative with his lineup. Brendan Gallagher was shuffled into Radulov’s spot on the first line alongside Alex Galchenyuk and Paul Byron, while the only line in tact from Sunday’s game in Chicago was Max Pacioretty, Phillip Danault and Andrew Shaw. No matter how ugly it looks on paper, it seems like Michel Therrien is pressing the right buttons on his blender. Last night his makeshift changes yielded...

Canadiens vs. Kings game recap: Full team effort secures win

Thursday’s game may have been the best yet this year. With a nod to Rogatien Vachon in the pre-game and a former fan favourite goalie in Peter Budaj facing off against Montreal, I thought this game was going to be a goalie’s affair. Thursday night, a high-flying Los Angeles Kings team rolled into Montreal hoping to derail the Habs’ hot start to the season, but Michel Therrien’s team had different plans in mind. From the opening faceoff, it was clear the Canadiens meant to spend as much time as possible in the offensive zone. After Max Pacioretty used his skating to draw a penalty...
