Montreal Canadiens Links

  • PK Subban put up a $72M-like performance on Saturday night at the Bell Centre. Subban now has three goals in six games to start the season for the Habs and is well on his way to being one of the top defensemen in the league once again this year. [Montreal Gazette]
  • After a 5-1 start for the Habs, they got a much earned day off on Sunday from head coach Michel Therrien. [RDS] (French)
  • The Habs are officially the first team in the NHL to reach the double-digit point mark. The Hockey Writers breaks down how they did it and what's in store for them the rest of the way. [Hockey Writers]
  • If you missed the first episode of season 3 of "24/CH", not to worry, our very own Veronica Canete has you covered with all of the details. [EOTP]

Around the League

  • Coach Mike Babcock is widely known as one of the best hockey coaches in the world. He has won the Stanley Cup and a gold medal with Team Canada as a coach. He is not only a teacher of hockey players though, he is a magnificent mentor for his assistant coaches and staff, as proven by his "Coaching Tree". Dan Rosen gives his "Sunday Long Read" on Coach Mike Babcock. [NHL]
  • Toronto Maple Leaf forward Joffrey Lupul seems to think that Leafs' fans on the road are actually better than Leafs' fans at the Air Canada Center. He spoke with TSN about it on Sunday. [TSN]
  • This is one of the funniest things I have ever seen. If you haven't checked it out on Twitter yet, read this and follow along as non-NHL fans try and guess what NHL players do for a living just by looking at a picture of them in regular clothes. Phil Kessel is apparently a video game programmer and Ovie is a watch-maker. Ha! [USA Today]
  • Head coach of the Colorado Avalanche, Patrick Roy, is coming off of a Jack Adams Trophy-Winning season as the coach of the year in 2013-2014. Now, though, the Avs are off to a 1-4-1 start and just lost their Vezina nominated goaltender Semyon Varlamov and their backup goalie Reto Berra to injuries and are being forced to start rookie and AHL caliber Calvin Pickard as the starting goalie. Patrick Roy will now face his toughest test yet. [Mile High Hockey]
