Montreal Canadiens News
- Ever the role model, P.K. Subban responded to the contrived hockey outrage surrounding the racist tweets that occurred after game one. His response to the negativity was about as perfect as it gets:
- Subban's father was also asked about the comments, and in typical Karl Subban style he handled the situation with grace and dignity. It's tough not to love the Subban family, since they do absolutely everything right.
- Just in case you weren't convinced, here's another little tidbit that'll make you respect Karl Subban even more than you already do, if that's possible. The man definitely has a sense of humour.
- Prospect Dalton Thrower underwent ankle surgery. He still hasn't been offered a contract by the Habs, and he's not sure what his next move should be.
- Michel Therrien is remaining positive after his team's collapse in game two. He also mentioned there are some changes coming, which might mean we'll be seeing Douglas Murray in game three.
- The Montreal Gazette produced a list of 10 people you should follow on Twitter during Habs games. I'm definitely not posting it in the links because I happen to be on that list. Definitely not.
- The Habs are managing to dump the puck out of the defensive zone a lot less in the first two games versus the Bruins than they were versus Tampa Bay. To the tune of a 10% difference.
- Therrien claims that Brandon Prust is healthy. If you believe that I have a bridge to sell you.
- Eric Engels opined on the game two fiasco, and he also brought up some good points regarding Subban.
- Brian Wilde also gave us his take via Call of the Wilde. He hits the nail on the head with the Julien comment.
- Sven Andrighetto is enjoying his time with the club alongside the Black Aces.
