PRICE LEADS CANADIENS’ NOVEMBER

Nov 30th, 2010 | By

The month of November ends and Carey Price is once again named the Molson Cup winner. That’s two months in a row and now surprise, since many people think his is not only a candidate for the Vezina Trophy but also the Hart. The Canadiens entered the month of November in first place in the Northeast division and third overall in the league. At the end of the month they are still first in the Northeast and fifth overall in the NHL. As you might expect, Tomas Plekanec was the top scorer on the team with three goals and ten assists. Brian Gionta came out of his funk, thanks to a move to the Plekanec line.



THE MVP SEASONS OF PRICE & HALAK

Nov 17th, 2010 | By

Last night Carey Price logged his third shutout in his last seven games. Tonight Jaroslav Halak, who recorded three shutouts during his first first nine games, will have a chance to answer back in Detroit.
Those who are charting the progress of the two former teammates know that through the first month of the season, it was all Halak. Into the second month and it’s now all-Carey Price. It’s probably going to go back and forth like this all year. Consider it a fun exercise, comparing goaltenders who at this point in time are the most valuable player of their respective team.
Right now Price, who will start his 18th game tomorrow night against Nashville, is ahead of Halak in the league’s goaltender statistics.

SOME THOUGHTS BEFORE BRUINS/HABS – I

Nov 10th, 2010 | By

Notes before the first Canadiens/Bruins game of the season.
—–Centre Dustin Boyd has cleared waivers but remains with the Canadiens. Unless the Canadiens were trying to send a message with the risk of a waiver claim, it’s hard to understand exactly what the purpose of the exercise was.
On the depth chart Ryan O’Byrne remains at the bottom. He has not played in twelve games and, with Alexandre Picard ahead of him, chances of an appearance in the lineup in the near future are slim. He won’t go on waivers because a raw 6’5” 220 pound defenceman, unlike Boyd, is likely to be claimed. Look for an eventual trade.

Nov 9th, 2010 | By

Andrei Markov scored his first goal of the season at 6:53 of the first period and Carey Price did the rest in a 2-0 win over the Vancouver Canucks at the Bell Centre Tuesday night.

The Canucks had a six game winning streak ended in the first of a five game 10-day road trip. The other Canadiens goal was scored by Roman Hamrlik during a third-period power play.
