Canadiens vs. Rangers Game Recap: Taking Two on Broadway

Canadiens vs. Rangers Game Recap: Taking Two on Broadway

A gutsy effort against a hot team keep the Canadiens in first in the Atlantic Before the game even started, there was drama fit for Broadway. Carey Price took a high shot off shoulder from Paul Byron in warmups, leaving the ice early. No worse for wear, he still started the game - his first in Madson Square Garden since the Kreider Incident. The two teams wasted no time getting started, with a big Shea Weber block early on a nearly two-on-one chance for the Rangers after a Canadiens scoring chance went awry, keeping the game at zeroes. Two minutes in, the Byron-Alex Galchenyuk-Brendan...

Wednesday Habs Headlines: Greg Pateryn is on the trade market

Here are your daily links, including giving Nathan Beaulieu a chance to play with Weber, Pateryn on the trade block and the Canadiens’ minor league trade Montreal Canadiens news and notes If the Habs want to be successful in the long run, they will need to pair Shea Weber with a puck-moving counterpart, and they might want to reconsider Nathan Beaulieu in that spot. And though Brendan Gallagher has struggled offensively this year, like his captain before him, it shouldn’t be long before he gets back in the swing of things. [TSN 690] Greg Pateryn finds himself on the trade block with a...

The Overdue Canadien Break-Up

At the beginning of the season, no one realistically thought Alexei Emelin was a top-pair defender when he was slotted alongside Shea Weber. Now, with the Montreal Canadiens struggling, the Weber-Emelin experiment as the No. 1 duo has finally run its course and it’s time for new head coach Claude Julien to break them up. Throughout their […]

Frei: Avalanche’s efforts at drafting elite defensemen have proven fruitless

When the Montreal Canadiens passed through Denver the other day, I was reminded that the blockbuster Shea Weber-for-P.K. Subban trade last summer underscored that cornerstone defensemen don't have to come from the first round of the NHL draft.

It looked awful, but Avalanche winger Matt Nieto isn’t seriously injured

So if you have to be nailed with a slap shot, you're going to hope it comes from anyone but Shea Weber, the Montreal Canadiens defenseman who has won the hardest shot competition at the NHL All-Star Game three times in a row.

‘It’s OK to fall down, but you need to get up’

Marc Bergevin and Geoff Molson discuss last season’s collapse, and the trade deadline Last season was a year that most Montreal Canadiens would want to forget. An historic start, followed by an historic ending: one of the worst stretches in franchise history. But there weren’t many changes. Geoff Molson kept Marc Bergevin as general manager, who kept Michel Therrien as head coach. They added Kirk Muller to the coaching staff, and traded Lars Eller and P.K. Subban. They added Shea Weber, Andrew Shaw, and Alexander Radulov. “I think he stayed the course, for sure,” said Canadiens...

All-star Weber defends hardest shot title at skills competition

Shea Weber won the hardest shot competition for the third straight year as the Atlantic Division captured night's Skills Competition as part of the build up to the 2017 NHL All-Star Game.

Shea Weber wins the Hardest Shot competition for the third consecutive season

Shea Weber wins the Hardest Shot competition for the third consecutive season

Weber has taken over the marquee event of the annual NHL Skills Competition in recent years. Shea Weber has emerged as the player with the most-feared shot in the NHL, taking the mantle from Zdeno Chara in recent years. Chara held the official title for five straight events from the 2007 NHL Skills Competition to 2012 (with a lockout and Olympic year scrubbing the annual showcase in two years during that span). With tonight’s win, Weber ran his streak to three. After hitting 108 miles per hour in each of the last few years, clocking it at just under Chara’s record of 108.8 set in 2012,...
