In the Habs’ Room: $9-million blueliner Subban sparks CH offence

P.K. Subban had a hand in all three of his team’s goals Thursday night as the Canadiens posted a 3-2 overtime win over the Colorado Avalanche, but he put the victory in perspective when he said: “It’s a preseason game, it doesn’t mean anything.” “We had pretty much an NHL lineup out there and they didn’t,” Subban continued. “It’s nice to get the win, but it’s preseason.”

Canadiens’ power-play unit comes to the rescue

Canadiens’ power-play unit comes to the rescue

The skinny: Alex Galchenyuk scored at 3:28 of overtime to give the Canadiens a 3-2 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday night at the Bell Centre. The Canadiens iced an NHL-calibre lineup, but they were forced to play from behind for most of the night and they needed two power-play goals to force the overtime. The Canadiens went into the OT with a 4-on-3 advantage after Max Talbot was sent off at 19:55 of the third period for boarding Alexei Emelin and it became a 5-on-3 advantage when Nick Holden went off at 1:26 of the OT.

Preseason Game 2: Colorado at Canadiens

Sure, this is just another exhibition game. But Colorado is a young, talented team. And the visitors are coached by a Canadiens legend.

Patrick Roy will always be a story in Montreal

Patrick Roy will always be a story in Montreal

MONTREAL — It was six months ago that Patrick Roy was most recently at the Bell Centre, his Colorado Avalanche drubbed 6-3 that March night by the Canadiens — and a Thomas Vanek hat trick. The legendary Habs netminder, in his rookie season behind the Avalanche bench, was featured that morning in a command-performance news conference, the room packed for a 30-minute four-ring circus — two of Roy’s Stanley Cup rings were earned in Montreal, two more followed in Colorado.

Habs start getting serious at camp

Habs start getting serious at camp

MONTREAL — The Canadiens want to make it very clear that they didn’t make any cuts Wednesday, but it was equally clear that’s exactly what they did as the club divided the camp into two groups. The main group of 27 (plus the injured Lars Eller) represents the players battling for the 23 roster spots on opening night in Toronto on Oct. 8. The other group, about 40 players when you factor in some injuries, participated Wednesday in what was unofficially the start of the Hamilton Bulldogs’ training camp in Brossard.

The Game Within the Game: Stalking Nick Sorkin

There is nothing terribly exciting about the way Nick Sorkin plays hockey. Seeing the tall, slender forward streak across the ice, the words "plain white toast" come to mind. He moves well, isn't easily taken off the puck but there's not much flash in Sorkin's game.

Stubbs: No villains, but lots of cheers for 60-minute audition

Maybe, upon seeing the lineups, “lunchbag letdown” was a little harsh. No one figured the needle of intensity would spike during Tuesday’s preseason game between the Canadiens and Boston Bruins at the Bell Centre.
