Canadiens Playoffs 2014: Brandon Prust will play tonight

Brandon Prust confirmed to Guillaume Lefrancois of Radio Canada that he would play tonight against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Prust has been practicing with Tomas Plekanec and Brendan Gallagher, as well as with Lars Eller and Brian Gionta. It's unknown which trio he'll end up playing with, but it seems like he'll be the left winger Michel Therrien wants matched up against Steven Stamkos, who is playing right wing instead of center.

Creative hockey display bashing Toronto at a Canadian Tire


Someone working at Canadian Tire in (I'm assuming) Ottawa, took advantage of their position in staging a display to take a shot at the Toronto Maple Leafs. As funny as it may seem at first, the one thing that didn't go wrong with the Leafs this year was goaltending. Oddly that was Ottawa's achilles heel. It's almost as if Sens fans are really insecure or something.

Captains getting it done: A side-by-side of Gionta and Koivu's game winners

MDevonL on reddit had the brilliant idea of putting two of the Canadiens' more epic shootout/penalty moments together. I remember thinking after Gionta got the job done that the move looked pretty familiar, but I didn't put two and two together and realize that the current captain had taken inspiration from the last captain. It's little things like this that stick out as great moments.

Habs forward lines for game 1

Arpon Basu is at Habs practice, and the Canadiens' lines have been mixed up a little bit to face the Lightning. Arpon notes that the Prust - Eller - Gionta line seems to be the line that will be trusted to counter Steven Stamkos. Francis Bouillon is also playing with Mike Weaver, hinting that he'll be the one to draw into game 1 over Douglas Murray.

A lot of people hate P.K. Subban, this is why you should love him

Joe O'Connor from the National Post takes on the issue of why P.K. Subban is so hated around the league, and makes the argument that he's actually one of the NHL's most interesting and lovable players. We already know that, but others clearly don't.

I'm happy. any word of financials?

Carey Price named player of the year

It was announced today that Carey Price would take home the honour that is known as the Molson Cup, as the best player of the year for the Canadiens. This should come as no surprise, as he's quite clearly and undeniably the main reason why the Habs are in the playoffs. Good job Carey, now keep it up until you hit 16 wins in the playoffs.

Josh Gorges aims to be back Wednesday

There was some good news this morning, as both Dale Weise, and more importantly Josh Gorges returned to practice. Gorges has been out of action after suffering a fractured hand versus the Maple Leafs in March. Once Gorges returns to the lineup the Habs will be able to ice a reasonable defensive corps, which should (but probably won't) look like this: Emelin - Markov, Gorges - Subban, Tinordi - Weaver,

Emelin lays out Datsyuk and Jurco

It's been a tough year for Alexei Emelin, although things seem to be getting better as the Russian defender is up to his old ways, hitting everything in sight. If Emelin is on his game he's one of the best hitters in the NHL. Hopefully he keeps up his devastating hits in the playoffs, for Montreal's sake.

Pacioretty's 5 point night versus Ottawa

Remember in October when some fans wanted Pacioretty traded because he was a 'perimeter' player that was too soft? Well, he now sits 4th in goals this year, having missed 9 games. For the record, he's signed until 2019 for a mere $4.5M per year. Enjoy this video of his 5 point night versus the Senators.
