Recap: Drawing the short straw

Photo by Claus Andersen/ Corey Perry continues to impress, but can’t prevent a Maple Leafs victory. Earlier in the day on Wednesday. Marc Bergevin had put Brendan Gallagher on LTIR, meaning that he will be out for at least the upcoming six weeks. A few hours later, it was time for the Montreal Canadiens to play their first game since the injuries to both Gallagher and Carey Price were announced. This effectively meant lineup change duty for Dominique Ducharme, who placed Jesperi Kotkaniemi on Phillip Danault’s right wing and Jake Allen between the pipes. Toronto...

Montreal Canadiens: Brendan Gallagher Leaves With Injury

Montreal Canadiens top line of Phillip Danault, Tomas Tatar and Brendan Gallagher has gone through ups and downs this season. They have looked dominant at times, but also struggled to find the back of the opponent’s net with consistency. Danault especially has had a hard time scoring goals, but they still dominated possession and were […] Montreal Canadiens: Brendan Gallagher Leaves With Injury - A Winning Habit - A Winning Habit - A Montreal Canadiens Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

In the Habs' room: Danault, Gallagher and Tatar pace suddenly hot Canadiens

We’ll never quite know what possessed former Canadiens coach Claude Julien to break up the Tomas Tatar, Phillip Danault and Brendan Gallagher triumvirate. Or to bench Tatar for that matter. But Dominique Ducharme, Julien’s replacement, decided the trial...

The Canadiens’ top line is catching fire

The Canadiens’ top line is catching fire

Photo by André Ringuette/NHLI via Phillip Danault, Brendan Gallagher, and Tomas Tatar are heating up at the perfect time for their team. There has been a legitimate argument this year that the top line for the Montreal Canadiens was not the one it was expected to be. The line of Phillip Danault, Brendan Gallagher, and Tomas Tatar had been a powerhouse for this team, but they just didn’t seem to have the juice that some of the other trios have exhibited on the year. It got to the point where they even had to be split up for a time, as they just weren’t producing...

Montreal Canadiens Organizational Players of March

Bob Frid-USA TODAY Sports Canadiens properties around the globe were lighting the lamp with regularity. NHL Player of the Month: Brendan Gallagher In the opening two months, it looked like the magic was fading for the Canadiens’ most trusted trio; a line that ranked among the very best in terms of chances generated since Tomas Tatar’s arrival to the organization. The new off-season additions and young centres were stealing all the headlines, while Phillip Danault’s line struggled to produce. That all changed in March when all three players rose to near the top of...

The only two games that were any different were by choice, as […] Montreal Canadiens: Eric Staal Gives Habs Much Needed Depth at Centre - A Winning Habit - A Winning Habit - A Montreal Canadiens Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Montreal Canadiens: 7 Talking Points

1. 3v3 Overtime Two weeks ago, my #1 talking point focused on the Canadiens’ overtime struggles and their playing of defensive forwards like Phillip Danault, Paul Byron and Joel Armia being a deeply flawed 3v3 strategy.

Canadiens battle back late to earn a point, but fall 4-3 to Jets in OT
