Canadiens vs. Red Wings game recap: Habs salvage a point

The Red Wings take two from the lacklustre Habs After sweeping the weekend, the Canadiens welcomed the Red Wings to the Bell Centre Tuesday night. Al Montoya got the start, letting Price rest after playing both games in a back-to-back weekend. As a nod to the new Hab, Claude Julien started Steve Ott’s line against his old team and the big forward made his presence felt early with a hit on his former teammate. The physicality continued, though not as you’d want, as Nathan Beaulieu took an interference penalty just 45 seconds into the game. The Red Wings wasted no time, potting one just 8...

Habs lines at practice: Montoya to start vs Wings, Ott replaces McCarron

The Canadiens made a few adjustments ahead of tonight’s game. The Montreal Canadiens were on the ice to prepare for the second match of their six-game homestand.

Canadiens vs. Senators game recap: Once More with Feeling

The Habs picked up two more points in a convincing win. After a hard-fought shootout victory, the Montreal Canadiens tinkered with their lineup, adding Michael McCarron and Alexei Emelin in place of Steve Ott and Brandon Davidson. Carey Price got the start, and the Hometown Hockey crowd was treated to the dulcet tones of Bob Cole. Image credit: HockeyStats.ca The Habs got off to a lightning quick start, as Tomas Plekanec tipped the puck past Craig Anderson 28 seconds into the game. Mere moments later, their hot start continued, as Mike Hoffman took an interference call...

Are Dwight King, Steve Ott, and Andreas Martinsen benefiting from Claude Julien’s system?

Comparing the Canadiens big additions to previous Julien deadline adds. After a recent six-game win streak, the Montreal Canadiens have now lost two of their last three, scoring just one goal over the two defeats. The lack of goal-scoring was the biggest issue facing the team at the trade deadline, but with a dearth of offensive talent available, with exorbitant prices for those who reportedly were, the additions the Canadiens made were largely of the depth variety, acquiring three fourth-line forwards. After the deadline passed without a top-six player joining the fold, the focus...

Eyes on the Price: Sending a message after defensive breakdowns

Carey Price and his new teammates crush the Rangers, but more change may be on the way This time, the Canadiens’ victory in New York didn’t require any overtime heroics from Carey Price. Fresh off their emotional 2-1 home victory over P.K. Subban and the Nashville Predators on March 2, the Habs returned to Madison Square Garden on Saturday March 4, and thrashed the Rangers 4-1. Trade deadline acquisitions Dwight King, Andreas Martinsen, and Steve Ott all provided the physical presence that Marc Bergevin had hoped for, as his tweaked roster sent a message to their potential first round...

Soldiers of fortune: Is it time for the Habs’ luck to change?

After a dismal February, the Habs are hoping some forwards can bust their slump and propel the team into the post-season. If there’s one thing that’s been apparent about Marc Bergevin’s tenure with the Montreal Canadiens, it’s that the man doesn’t panic. The Canadiens’ general manager cited the cost of available scorers as the reason behind not bringing in offensive help at the deadline. Now, Bergevin is trusting his core to lead the team to playoff success. Bergevin’s goal in bringing players of Steve Ott and Andreas Martinsen’s calibre was to create competition within...
