MONTREAL — There’s never a dull moment when it comes to the Montreal Canadiens, but it’s not always possible to keep up to date with every breaking news story.

Every Sunday we will recap the most exciting and relevant NHL news stories that you may have missed throughout the week.



  • The Montreal Canadiens may already be having injury troubles this year, but it could provide them with an added advantage this season. With the injury to Kirby Dach confirmed to be season-ending, the Canadiens’ roster took a serious blow, but their finances just got a nice bump.

  • It was the veteran show on Monday night as Jake Allen, Tanner Pearson, Sean Monahan, and Brendan Gallagher led the charge in the win versus Buffalo. Gallagher, in particular, seems to be intent on finding his form of old. It’s also worth noting that Pearson has looked fantastic since joining the Habs.

  • The Montreal Canadiens announced that David Savard would miss some time due to his injury against the Buffalo Sabres. Following the game against the Devils, they updated his recovery time and announced he would be out for six to eight weeks. [More Injury Issues For the Canadiens]
  • Cayden Primeau was given the start against the Devils. He played well, but it wasn’t good enough to compensate for the brutal work of the special teams. It’s also worth noting that despite having a mediocre game overall, Mike Matheson scored one of the nicest goals you’ll see this season, an end-to-end rush that involved the defenceman carving through the Devils with the greatest of ease.

  • The third line, which features Brendan Gallagher, Tanner Pearson, and Sean Monahan, has looked great to start the season. The key to their success? Beyond having a chip on their shoulders, head coach Martin St-Louis is limiting their ice time, giving them an opportunity to go all out without burning all the fuel in their tanks.
