All the latest Montreal Canadiens news, highlights, and stories from Thursday.

Habs News

  • Montreal Canadiens owner Geoff Molson recently discussed the possibility of playing games in Europe. He would like his team to play in Paris, France, and is aiming to get the cross-Atlantic games scheduled for the 2025-26 season. [The Montreal Canadiens Want To Extend Their International Reach]
  • It seems like the days of starting different goalies every game are over. Samuel Montembeault was given his second start in a row by head coach Martin St-Louis. He also decided to place Joel Armia in the press box to re-insert Michael Pezzetta into the lineup. [Canadiens Game 26: Montembeault Starts, Pezzetta Returns]
  • The Canadiens lost to the Kings again, but unlike their first meeting of the season, they put forth a legitimate effort. The game served as a good reminder that the Habs can’t quite compete with Cup contenders, and that was to be expected. [Montreal Canadiens Loss To The Los Angeles Kings A Reality Check]
  • Defenceman David Savard is nearing a return to play. He skated at the Bell Centre on Thursday morning.

  • The Pittsburgh Penguins are at .500 with only 11 wins in 25 games. The lacklustre loss was panned by the players and the coach. However, TSN analyst Craig Button took direct aim at Penguins president of hockey operations/GM Kyle Dubas, too. [Pittsburgh Penguins]
  • It’s no secret that the San Jose Sharks are a rebuilding team, and, apparently, the Philadelphia Flyers are rebuilding too. The main takeaway here is that this can be done in different ways, and these two teams might be able to make a trade that is mutually beneficial in this regard. [Philadelphia Flyers]
  • Blackhawks forward Lukas Reichel was almost there. He took it to the net, flipped it with a backhand, and oh my, was it ever close. The oohs and ahhs of the partisan Hawks fans watching the replay said as much. So close, yet so far works on so many levels here. For the game; for much of the Blackhawks’ efforts this season.
