GAME #48 – Canadiens-7 Ottawa-1 (Jan.21/2011)

Jan 21st, 2011 | By

This was almost unfair. The Senators are in an awful slump; they played a tough grinding, fight filled game the night before in Philadelphia while the Canadiens came in rested. Still, that stuff goes on all the time in the 82 game NHL schedule and you have to fight through it. There didn’t seem to be much fight left in the Senators after the first period.
It’s about the first period. The Canadiens took advantage of the Senators sloppiness in to get the 2-0 lead. Darche with a great pass to send Pouliot away on the breakaway and then Kostitsyn stealing the puck and setting up Plekanec

Jan 10th, 2011 | By

A stomach infection prevented Michael Cammalleri from making the trip to New York with his Canadiens teammates today. The Canadiens will play the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden tomorrow night. Lars Eller, a healthy scratch the last three games, will probably replace him on the line with Tomas Plekanec and Andrei Kostsitsyn tomorrow.



GAME #42 – Montreal-3 Boston-2 (overtime) Jan.11/2011

Jan 8th, 2011 | By

What is it about the Bruins when they play the Canadiens. As Wayne Cashman used to say, “Something always happens!” For forty minutes the Bruins seemed to have things under complete control. They were outskating them and winning almost every battle for the puck. Carey Price was the only reason the game was 2-0 heading into the third. Then the worm turned. The Bruins fell back into a protective shell and allowed the Canadiens to come at them.
