A Hockey City: Be Yourself

A Hockey City: Be Yourself

There’s only one of you in the world, and the only one there will ever be. Looks like Carey Price is back to being himself and we can all breathe a sigh of relief again. I wonder what made the difference for Carey... It was nice to see Shea Weber back last night. I was starting to wonder where he went.
Is Victor Mete still in the NHL to stay?

Is Victor Mete still in the NHL to stay?

With the World Junior Championship coming, it might be in the Habs' best interest to let him go. In late October, Victor Mete got the news that everyone saw coming. The 19-year old defenceman got the news that he'd be playing his 10th National Hockey League game of the season for the Montreal Canadiens against the Los Angeles Kings at the Bell Centre, partnering with All-Star Shea Weber. His poise and relatively mistake-free game, along with a lack of other capable puck-moving defencemen on the roster, was enough to keep him around. You've certainly read up on this rule from the NHL's...

Canadiens vs. Blue Jackets game recap: Carey Me Home

Canadiens vs. Blue Jackets game recap: Carey Me Home

One could say it’s Carey Price’s world right now, and we’re just living in it. Only two days after pitching a shutout against the lowly Buffalo Sabres, Carey Price and the Canadiens faced a high flying Columbus Blue Jackets team, who were winners of six straight. Still missing Shea Weber, all eyes were on Price on Monday night, as Montreal iced a very inexperienced defence core for the second game in a row. Sergei Bobrovsky on the other hand, was also a focal point, as he’s been one of the best goaltenders in the NHL this season. Montreal got off to a quick start, as they rolled...

Canadiens vs. Predators: Game preview, start time, Tale of the Tape, and how to watch

The Habs don’t get any relief with a stop in Nashville to play one of the league’s top teams. The Montreal Canadiens leave the Lone Star state, having been defeated by an ex-teammate whose departure resulted in a few raised eyebrows at Habs management. Now, they arrive in Music City, where a longtime former blueline stalwart awaits. But enough about Alexei Emelin, despite his surprisingly semi-competent start to the season. The last time the Habs visited Nashville, the night focused on Shea Weber’s return to the city he called home for over a decade, and the ex-Predators captain...

Canadiens vs. Stars game recap: More of the same

The Habs lost again, giving up another pair of goals less than a minute apart to end the second — as is tradition, apparently. There has been a lot of doom and gloom in Habs land lately, and the news didn’t get any better when it was announced that Shea Weber was out of last night’s game with a lower-body injury. Charles Hudon had a good chance early on, and Charlie Lindgren made a few good saves, but Jordie Benn took a holding call in the defensive zone, and the Stars’ lethal power play went to work. The Habs’ penalty kill held Dallas to two shots. Max Pacioretty was hit hard...
