  • Could Max Pacioretty be the 29th captain of the Montreal Canadiens? It's becoming increasingly difficult to argue against. There is no doubt the 26-year-old is a star on the ice, leading the team in both goals and points once again. But he continues to mature off the ice as well. [La Presse]
  • Sean McIndoe put together his weekly NHL Grab Bag, headlined by P.K. Subban being the year's worst snub for the NHL All Star Game. [Grantland]
  • 17,000 fans showed up to watch the Habs practice at the Bell Centre on Sunday morning. [Canadiens]
  • Although Carey Price wasn't on the ice, he reassured fans that his injury is very minor, telling those in attendance: "I will be back soon." It appears he wasn't kidding, the team assigned goaltender Joey MacDonald to Hamilton shortly after practice. [TVA]
  • Speaking of goalies, the Habs decided to play a classic prank on Dustin Tokarski ahead of Sunday's practice. [The Score]
