Montreal Canadiens Links

  • The attendance in Montreal for the World Junior Championship has been underwhelming so far. It doesn't help that Hockey Canada is charging NHL prices. [The Star]
  • Lars Eller not only scored the 21,000th goal in Habs franchise history, he also shares the lead in the NHL for game-winning goals, along with Patrick Kane. [NHL]
  • The hockey world lost some incredible members this year, most notably Canadiens legend Jean Beliveau. John Kreiser remembers the accomplishments of those who are gone but never forgotten. [NHL]
  • Remember when Jiri Sekac was a healthy scratch for seven straight games? Neither do we. Make sure you watch this fantastic individual effort as he curls off the boards before putting home a sick backhander for the goal. And then make sure you watch it again. [YouTube]
