Montreal Canadiens links

  • Alex Galchenyuk's move to centre and David Desharnais's move to the wing have benefitted the Habs in a big way. The Habs lost 6-of-7 before the change and have won 7-of-8 since. [Sportsnet]
  • Tomas Plekanec also had a few interesting things to say about Montreal's play and Galchenyuk's progress. [Sportsnet]
  • To say that Don Cherry doesn't like the Habs, would be the understatement of the year. But that hasn't stopped him from criticizing (and occasionally praising) P.K. Subban. [National Post]
  • Watch this heartwarming video between Max Pacioretty and a young Habs fan, as they go head to head in a hockey trivia duel. [Canadiens]
  • Canadiens prospect and Team Slovakia's captain Martin Reway scored a hat trick against Team Germany, as his team went on to win the match 5-2. [EOTP]
  • Martin Reway also had this to say after his 3-goal performance. [Twitter]
