  • Habs Fan Pays For Banging on the Glass (Video)

    Habs Fan Pays For Banging on the Glass (Video)

    When people refer to hockey as a “full-contact sport,” they generally don’t mean spectators, but one fan watching Thursday’s game between the Montreal Canadiens and Columbus Blue Jackets became an unwitting exception to that rule. To be fair, the fan was pressed up against the glass and banging their hands against it, which is kind […]

  • This Day In Sports History (March 17th) — Bell Centre

    This Day In Sports History (March 17th) — Bell Centre

    It was on this day in 1996 that the Montreal Canadiens played the first game in their new arena, the Molson Centre.  The Canadiens hosted the New York Rangers and beat them by a score of 4-2. The arena was named after Molson, Inc., a brewing company that owned the team at the time the […]

  • Stat Line of the Night — 2/6/2014 — Max Pacioretty

    Stat Line of the Night — 2/6/2014 — Max Pacioretty

    During last night’s game against the Vancouver Canucks, the Montreal Canadiens’ Max Pacioretty failed to convert on not one, but two penalty shot attempts during the course of the game.  You’d think that would make him the goat, but not quite. You see, Pacioretty may not have been able to score when given a breakaway […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 2/4/2014 — Carey Price

    With the start of the Olympics right around the corner, you know that Steve Yzerman, Mike Babcock and the rest of the Team Canada coaching staff will be keeping a close eye on their goaltending situation. Perhaps the one goaltender they’ll be watching closest is Montreal Canadiens netminder Carey Price.  And if they were watching […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/28/2014 — Carey Price

    The Montreal Canadiens entered Tuesday’s game against the Carolina Hurricanes having lost their last four straight.  Those losses have been rough on Carey Price, who was pulled on two occasions while allowing 17 goals against. The Habs’ netminder was looking to turn things around at the Bell Center last night, and he would do just […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 11/19/2013 — Max Pacioretty

    After losing to the Minnesota Wild earlier in the month, the Montreal Canadiens were looking for redemption when the two teams squared off again last night at the Bell Centre.  And the redemption they were looking for would be had, thanks in large part to a scoring outburst from Habs forward Max Pacioretty. Pacioretty entered […]

  • This Day In Sports History (August 19th) — Guy LaFleur

    This Day In Sports History (August 19th) — Guy LaFleur

    It was on this day in 1988 that the New York Rangers signed ex Montreal Canadiens superstar Guy LaFleur.  LaFleur came out of his four year retirement to join the Rangers on a one-year contract. From the 1974-75 season to the 1979-80 season, LaFleur was the NHL’s most productive player, amassing 50 goals and 100 […]

  • Canadiens and Senators Engage in Epic Playoff Line Brawl (Videos)

    Canadiens and Senators Engage in Epic Playoff Line Brawl (Videos)

    You generally don’t see as many hockey fights during the playoffs as you do in the regular season. The reason is that, during the playoffs, every single minute is crucial, and every single player is needed. If a guy isn’t deemed absolutely crucial to his team, then he isn’t in the lineup. So teams just […]

  • Sabres’ Steve Ott Licks Jeff Halpern’s Face (Video)

    Sabres’ Steve Ott Licks Jeff Halpern’s Face (Video)

    Thanks to Buffalo Sabres center Steve Ott, you may soon be hearing something at NHL arenas that you never thought you’d hear… “Two minutes for licking.” Yes, licking. Nowhere in the NHL rulebook does it say you’re not allowed to lick another player, but that’s only because nobody ever tried…until last night. The Montreal Canadiens […]

    Carey Price Was On, Cam Ward Was Not Last Night (Videos)

    During last night’s game between the Carolina Hurricanes and the Montreal Canadiens at the Bell Centre, we saw a tale of two goaltenders who were having themselves two very different nights. On the one hand, there was Canes’ starting goaltender, Cam Ward, who did manage to make 23 saves on the evening, but there were […]

    Habs’ Carey Price Takes a Puck to the Groin During Warm-Ups (Video)

    You would think that, with frozen pieces of rubber flying at them at 80 mph, hockey goalies would have enough padding around their “man equipment” to make sure nothing bad can happen. But apparently that is not the case. Before last night’s Bruins-Canadiens tilt at the Bell Centre in Montreal, during the pre-game skate, Montreal’s […]
