  • See all of the highlights and analysis of last night's game between the Habs and the Edmonton Oilers in Edmonton. [EOTP]
  • Brian Gionta and Josh Gorges are not the least bit shocked that the Canadiens are off to a great start and look to be a force to be reckon with this year. Here we go boys here we go! [La Presse] (French)
  • Los Angeles Kings legendary goaltender Rogie Vachon was in Montreal on Saturday with the Stanley Cup, right where his career began. [Montreal Gazette]
  • Edmonton Oilers head coach Dallas Eakins was very nervous about the Habs before they came to town on Monday night. The Habs, who had the best record in the league coming into Monday night's match up, were also on a four game winning streak, so I don't blame him. [Edmonton Journal]

Around the League

  • Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Olli Maatta will be out for four weeks once he undergoes surgery to remove his thyroid, which has an 85% chance of being cancerous. Maatta, who should be fine, was cleared to play until the surgery occurs. [ESPN]
  • The story of Scott Darling is sure a "feel-good" one. The 25-year old Chicago native, who has been fighting it out in the minor leagues for his entire career, got the call-up from the Blackhawks and won the game for them on Sunday in his NHL debut, allowing just one goal on 33 shots in a 2-1 victory. [NHL]

  • Barry Melrose was really moved by the uniting of all Canadian people over the last week since the atrocities in Ottawa. [Melrose Minute]
  • Patrick Roy won the Jack Adams trophy last year as coach of the year for the Colorado Avalanche, but the Avalanche don't look the same at all this year, and neither does Roy. [Mile High Hockey]
