Canadiens vs. Sharks game recap: In Deep Water

Canadiens vs. Sharks game recap: In Deep Water

The 18-year losing streak continues as the Habs fall to 1-8-1 in San Jose. At the beginning of the first game of the traditionally dreadful western road trip from hell, the Canadiens and the Sharks exchanged chances, and then exchanged lightening fast goals as first Logan Couture and then Jonathan Drouin scored 16 seconds apart.

Alex Galchenyuk remains on the fourth line, while David Schlemko didn’t practise after being recalled from Laval. Before the Montreal Canadiens’ morning skate began, it was announced that David Schlemko had been recalled after a one-game conditioning stint in Laval. He didn’t make it to practice in time to participate, however.

Seven Days in Stats: What the numbers suggest about the Montreal Canadiens’ first week of the season

The impact of Shea Weber, the special game of Victor Mete, the rejuvenation of Tomas Plekanec, and more are detailed using various metrics. Welcome to “The week in stats,” a (hopefully) weekly column where we take a look at seven interesting quirks of the Montreal Canadiens’ stats sheet over the last week. Just as a preamble, although the topics we highlight here are based on data, they are not to be taken as trends, as the sample sizes aren’t nearly sufficient. The intention is to look at curious or noteworthy things and talk about their implications if they persist in the...

Canadiens vs. Sabres game recap: Habs get the win despite a sloppy game

The Habs turned in a rough performance, but still came away with the win thanks to some timely (and gorgeous) goals. The Montreal Canadiens started their 2017-18 with two rookies in the lineup. Charles Hudon‘s line with Artturi Lehkonen, Tomas Plekanec started the game off on the right foot with some offensive-zone pressure, while Victor Mete got his first shift in the NHL on the change. Image credit: HockeyStats,ca Evander Kane took a faceoff violation penalty less than three minutes in, and though the Habs held on to possession for almost the entire two minutes,...

The EOTP staff predicts the 2017-18 Canadiens season

We’ll probably be wrong, but what if we’re right? Brad Simpson: Montreal will mostly do well, be competitive. Have one lull during the season but recover from it. At the trade deadline, Marc Bergevin will acquire past-their-prime gritty "character" guys. Montreal will make the playoffs and get eliminated in the first or second round. Also, Alex Galchenyuk gets traded, Habs do not get full value in return and Chucky turns into a 30+ goal beast somewhere else. Shannon Leah: Artturi Lehkonen and Charles Hudon have breakout years, Tomas Plekanec rebounds as well with them on his wing. Most...

Montreal Canadiens lines at practice: September 28

Bottom six shakeup and defensive scramble highlight today’s practice session The Canadiens took to the ice on Thursday, a day after their most recent preseason loss. The lines were mostly familiar, with the Jonathan Drouin and Tomas Plekanec lines staying intact. After having developed good chemistry with Phillip Danault earlier this week, Shaw has stayed on his line with Alex Galchenyuk, while Ales Hemsky sees him fall all the way from the first line at the start of training camp, to the fourth line. However, this has little to do with Hemsky himself and is just Claude Julien looking to...
