Montreal Canadiens Links

  • It's no secret the Habs rely far too much on Carey Price. But just in case you needed further evidence of his importance: the Canadiens allow the second lowest percentage of goals per shot attempt in the league. [TSN]
  • Charles Hudon was named Co-MVP of the AHL All-Star Game last night. [Bulldogs]
  • For his troubles, Price enjoyed a couple of days at the NHL All-Star Game in Columbus. Check out the best photos from his experience. [Canadiens]
  • Both Price and youngster Jiri Sekac were absent from practice yesterday afternoon after bad weather delayed their flight home. They would eventually make it to Montreal and will be in the lineup against the Dallas Stars this evening. [La Presse]
  • Bob McKenzie compiled a "Who's Best?" NHL coaches survey. Price ran away with "Best Goalie" in the Eastern Conference, earning eight of the 10 votes. P.K. Subban received one vote for "Best Defenseman", while Michel Therrien snagged a vote for "Best Coach." We're still awaiting confirmation on whether Therrien participated in the survey himself. [TSN]
  • This should make you smile. As per the Canadian Press, the Habs have a 98.8% chance of making the playoffs. [CBC]
  • Our very own Robert Rice is back with his weekly Juniors Report, taking a look at Jeremy Grégoire's great week. The Canadiens prospect recorded eight points in just a pair of games. [EOTP]
  • And more shameless self promotion. You can support EOTP be purchasing some of our awesome apparel. Buy now and you get not five, not 10, but 20 free high fives!! [EOTP]

Around the League and Elsewhere

  • The Los Angeles Kings have placed struggling forward Mike Richards on waivers. The two-time Stanley Cup champion continues to see a drop in production despite carrying a $5.75 million cap hit for five more years. [Sportsnet]
  • Philadelphia Flyers tough guy Zac Rinaldo has been suspended eight games by the NHL for charging and boarding Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang. He will forfeit $73,171. [NHL]
  • More bad news (or good news depending on how you look at it) for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Captain Dion Phaneuf is out week-to-week with an "upper body" injury. [The Star]
  • Remember Ryan Whitney? Justin Bourne offers a fantastic read on the end of Whitney's time with the Edmonton Oilers, and life in the KHL. [The Score]
  • There's been a lot of negativity towards the World Cup of Hockey. Cara T. believes that it's time for us to embrace it for what it is. [Arctic Ice Hockey]
  • The thought of this makes me cringe, but it's pretty impressive nonetheless. Watch a six-year-old boy slap shot a loose tooth out of his mouth. [Puck Daddy]
  • And lastly, this is by far one of the best moments from the NHL All-Star Game. I present to you, the best coach ever: Chris Sutter, the son of Kings head coach Darryl Sutter. [TVA]
