THE HABS WEEK (Nov.7-13/2010)

Nov 14th, 2010 | By

For the Montreal Canadiens it might have been a perfect week except…..Andrei Markov was hurt again, Dustin Brown was put on waivers and Ryan O’Byrne was traded.
The week started with a 2-0 shutdown of the Vancouver Canucks at the Bell Centre. Carey Price stopped all 35 shots, 20 of them in the third period. Markov and Hamrlik scored the goals. On Thursday in Boston another defensive masterpiece and a 3-1 win over the Bruins. Saturday night Carey Price kept the Canadiens in the game with 15 first period saves’

Nov 11th, 2010 | By

The 18 year old Bournival, a forward, is playing for the Shawinigan Cataracts of the QMJHL this season. In 17 games, the 6’0” 187 pound Bournival has 24 points (10 goals and 14 assists) and is plus-9.



SOME THOUGHTS BEFORE BRUINS/HABS – I

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.
