Habs News

  • The Montreal Canadiens hosted Connor Bedard and the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night, aiming to win their first game in regulation of the season. Bedard played well but it was not enough, as the Habs won 3-2 thanks to goals from Cole Caufield, Tanner Pearson, and Sean Monahan. Unfortunately, Kirby Dach had to leave the game after former Hab Jarred Tinordi drove him into the Blackhawks bench. [Canadiens Caufield, Pearson, Monahan Score In Win Vs. Hawks]
  • Canadiens legend Carey Price was in Montreal for the rather opening game of the season. He did not take part in the pre-game ceremony, which was rather dull to say the least.

  • It was not the loss to the Chicago Blackhawks in the season’s penultimate game that cost the Pittsburgh Penguins their highly valued 16-year playoff streak. The Penguins veterans instead look back with regret on the number of opportunities they punted away throughout the season, including points given away in October. The lesson seems to have made an indelible impression upon Evgeni Malkin, whose three-game start to the season has been some of the best hockey he’s played over the last few seasons.

  • Mackenzie Blackwood may have played arguably the best game of his NHL career, but it still wasn’t enough to beat the Colorado Avalanche. It took 49 shots, but the Avalanche were finally able to solve the San Jose Sharks netminder late, tying the game up with under 2 minutes remaining, thanks to a Cale Makar goal. [Colorado Avalanche]
  • During Red Wings training camp, the newly-acquired bulk of Detroit winger Lucas Raymond was all the rage. Saturday, Tampa Bay Lightning forward Michael Eyssimont found himself on the wrong end of a raging Raymond. [Detroit Red Wings]
