  • 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)

    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)

    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 […]

  • 15 Best Stanley Cup Champion Rings

    15 Best Stanley Cup Champion Rings

    As I watched the Philadelphia Flyers finish off the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday to close out that bizarre, violent, high-scoring playoff series, one of the first thoughts to pop into my head was, “well, I guess Sid and Evgeni won’t be getting new rings this year. Normally I don’t even think of championship rings when […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Lucic vs. Komisarek — 3/19/12

    Dating back to Mike Komisarek’s days with the Montreal Canadiens, he and Milan Lucic of the Boston Bruins have had their fair share of face-to-face encounters.  Now a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Komisarek still gets to see the Bruins and Lucic on a regular basis (as long as he doesn’t find himself watching […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Cowen vs. Nokelainen — 3/14/12

    The Montreal Canadiens’ Petteri Nokelainen doesn’t do much fighting on the ice, and we now know why after watching him take a flurry of uppercuts during a bout with the Ottawa Senators’ Jared Cowen last night. When the two combatants dropped their gloves during the latter stages of the opening period, it appeared as though […]

    Canadiens’ Erik Cole High-Fives Referee After Goal (Video)

    Heading into last night’s game against the Ottawa Senators, the Montreal Canadiens’ Erik Cole had celebrated 26 goals on the season.  After slipping a rebound past Sens goalie Ben Bishop in the opening period, he celebrated his 27th goal of the season in a slightly different manner than his previous 26, as he high-fived the […]
