Here are the Montreal Canadiens news, highlights, and stories you may have missed during the weekend.

Montreal Canadiens News

  • The Montreal Canadiens managed to put together one functional line when Juraj Slafkovsky was placed on a trio Nick Suzuki, and Cole Caufield. It’s an encouraging start, but given all the other question marks in the lineup, you’d be hard-pressed to suggest there isn’t still a lot of work left to do before we can consider the forward situation in the NHL to be healthy.   [Canadiens Checklist: State Of The Rebuild – NHL Forwards]


  • Legendary hockey announcer Bob Cole passed away last week, leading to a flood of tributes for the long-time voice of Hockey Night in Canada. Fellow Canadian Tim Thompson created a fantastic montage to honour the man from Newfoundland who marked hockey in so many ways.   [Canadiens Videos: A Great Tribute For The Legendary Bob Cole]


  • Michael Pezzetta is a tough customer on the ice, but he’s also one of the nicest players in the league. It comes as no surprise that he’s trying to raise money for children battling cancer. [CanDonate Hair – Michael Pezzetta]

NHL Playoffs

  • The Vancouver Canucks took a stranglehold in their series with the Nashville Predators thanks to Elias Lindholm’s overtime goal.

  • Former Hab Artturi Lehkonen continues to be an important player in the playoffs. The hard-working winger has four goals and three assists in just 5 games. But the goal of the weekend belonged to his teammate, Cale Makar.

  • Things are going as expected in Toronto, as the Maple Leafs are on the brink of elimination in their series with the Boston Bruins.

  • Playoff clinchers have rarely come easily for the Boston Bruins of the Brad Marchand era. Yes, it’s time to call it that, for this is his team now, and the last remaining member of the Bruins’ 2011 Stanley Cup squad has announced himself in this opening-round playoff series against the Toronto Maple Leafs with consecutive game-winning goals on the road, sandwiching them like chocolate pucks around the not-so-sweet center of Sheldon Keefe’s complaints.

  • Last Spring, the Avalanche did not have that combination available to them for the entirety of the first round, and the difference was very noticeable. Everyone knows what happened with Nichushkin prior to Game Three in Seattle, but don’t forget that Lehkonen played most of that series on a broken toe. This is a very different team without those two in the lineup or even at full health, and we saw that against the Kraken. Right now, they’re both healthy, and the Jets have zero answers for them. Not only are they going to outwork you, but they’re supremely talented. [Colorado Avalanche]
  • The Russian Foreign Ministry is reportedly considering issuing a passport ban, via suspension of consular services, for Russian citizens living abroad, peripherally affecting Philadelphia Flyers players and prospects. This, of course, includes but is not limited to Russian players and prospects of other NHL teams as well. [Philadelphia Flyers]
