Canadiens vs. Islanders game recap: Victory!

Canadiens vs. Islanders game recap: Victory!

Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports After celebrating their 110th birthday, the Canadiens snapped their eight-game losing streak. Confidence is a funny thing, and it can be fleeting. On Tuesday night at the Bell Centre, the game was going away from the Montreal Canadiens. After 57 minutes of almost perfect hockey, Montreal was holding on to a slim 3-2 lead with under a minute remaining. Carey Price was forced to make a big save. The Canadiens iced the puck. They had a tired group on the ice for the next face off. Nate Thompson won the draw back to Shea Weber who fired it the length of the...

Canadiens captain Shea Weber plays invaluable role in halting skid

Nights like the Canadiens’ 4-2 win over the Islanders are what makes Weber who he is — a selfless leader who is as happy to share the credit when things go well as he is willing to take on the blame when they don’t. The post NHL appeared first on Sportsnet.ca.

Ben Chiarot played his best game of the year on Sunday

Ben Chiarot played his best game of the year on Sunday

Photo by Steve Babineau/NHLI via Given a massive role with a short-staffed defence, Chiarot handled things very well. It’s been an interesting first quarter of the season for Ben Chiarot. He had his early struggles, but has since come into his own as the season wears on. In the Montreal Canadiens’ win over the Boston Bruins in early November, he and Shea Weber combined to shut down a vaunted Bruins attack for three period. On Sunday, on the second night of a back-to-back, without a regular top-four option, it was Chiarot who ended up leading the defence again. At five-on-five,...

Montreal Canadiens Organizational Players of November

Montreal Canadiens Organizational Players of November

Photo by David Kirouac/Icon Sportswire via Two Canadians and two Swedes make up the list of last month’s top performers. Montreal Canadiens Player of the Month: Shea Weber In a month that ended with the Canadiens on a seven-game losing streak and the third-most goals against, you wouldn’t expect a defenceman to be the team’s top performer, but that was the case in November. The captain finished one point back of Tomas Tatar for the highest total in the month, with 12 in 13 games. Half of them were goals, and he was held pointless just three times. Sure his offensive game was...

June 29, 2016, was a dream come true for hockey fans alike. There wasn’t just one blockbuster trade for hockey fans to go crazy on Twitter about, but two. The Montreal Canadiens sent P.K.

Recap: Dull Habs can’t carve out a win

Photo by Minas Panagiotakis/ Inefficient offence and Craig Anderson prevent a Montreal bounce-back victory. Tuesday night’s defeat in Columbus marked the end of a six-game point streak for the Montreal Canadiens. Does a loss equal major lineup changes? Not for Claude Julien. The only switcheroo was putting Ben Chiarot on the top pairing with Shea Weber, and Victor Mete therefore pairing with Jeff Petry instead. Wednesday’s game also marked the first time this season that Carey Price continued in net for the second night of a back-to-back. There were some great scenes before the game...
