No easy answers lie ahead as Canadiens drop their fifth straight

Photo by David Kirouac/Icon Sportswire via The Boston Bruins stole Montreal’s lunch money, furthering the Canadiens’ losing skid. If there was ever a tonic for whatever was ailing the Montreal Canadiens, a showdown against the rival Boston Bruins was it. Their thrilling win over the Bruins just a few weeks earlier seemed to set the Canadiens on the right path and shooting up the division rankings, while the Bruins sagged a bit following the loss. However, since the loss of Paul Byron and Jonathan Drouin, the Canadiens had suffered four tough losses in a row to some of the NHL’s...

Should the Montreal Canadiens attempt to trade for Taylor Hall?

Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports Marc Bergevin is likely to be a buyer at the deadline, but with injuries accelerating his timeline, why wait to go after the biggest name available? Considering the Montreal Canadiens’ current position in the standings, Marc Bergevin seems likely to be a buyer at the NHL Trade Deadline. Though that is still months away, the news that Paul Byron will be out for at least a month, and Jonathan Drouin is likely out for two, may accelerate his timeline for any trades he would be looking to make. The offence has been stagnant and lacking finish for a few...

Recap: Third-period mistakes doom Montreal in Columbus

Russell LaBounty-USA TODAY Sports The Canadiens were the better side, but in the NHL that isn’t always enough. Coming off the heels of a controversial overtime loss to the New Jersey Devils on Saturday night, the Montreal Canadiens were handed another large dose of bad news. They would be without forward Paul Byron for at least a month, and star winger Jonathan Drouin for about two. What that means is forwards like Charles Hudon and a returning Jesperi Kotkaniemi are going to shoulder larger loads, and first up after learning their situation was a rematch against the Columbus Blue...
