Montreal Canadiens Links

  • Carey Price has absolutely no awareness of the Canadiens' position in the standings. Defeating the Pittsburgh Penguins for first place in the Eastern Conference was merely another victory in a lengthy 82-game season. [La Presse]
  • Speaking of Carey Price, he was named the third star of the week by the NHL after going 3-0 with a 1.33 goals against average and a .952 save percentage. [NHL]
  • Oh, and just in case you were wondering, the star goalie also won the Carey Price Cup for the month of December. Sorry, I totally meant to write the Molson Cup... I almost forgot what it was called for a moment there! [Canadiens]
  • Bryan Allen has been placed on waivers. Considering he hasn't been in the line-up since December 3rd, the move shouldn't come as much of a shock. [Sportsnet]
  • Despite feeling much better after getting absolutely nailed by New Jersey Devils forward Tim Sestito, P.A. Parenteau remains day-to-day with an "upper body" injury. He will not play against the Tampa Bay Lightning this evening. [TVA]
  • The guys over at Montreal 690 discuss the Habs hot start to 2015, while pondering if Carey Price is in contention for the Hart Trophy, and if Marc Bergevin should make a move. [TSN]
  • Max Pacioretty speaks about his balanced statistics, his time at Michigan, scoring his first NHL goal and his relationship with brother-in-law and former NHL'er Maxim Afinogenov. [The Hockey Writers]
  • Relive the final moments as Canadiens prospect Zachary Fucale and Team Canada win the World Juniors. [TSN]

Around the League and Elsewhere

  • Chicago Blackhawks star Patrick Kane had the top selling NHL jersey in 2014. Surprisingly, P.K. Subban and Carey Price did not crack the top 10 list. [Puck Daddy]
  • Is the Toronto Maple Leafs core flawed and destined to fail? James Mirtle believes the team should start selling, while getting younger now. [Globe And Mail]
  • Remember Ryan White? The ex-Habs tough guy was recalled by the Philadelphia Flyers yesterday morning, only to be placed on waivers at Noon. [Broad Street Hockey]
  • Federal Authorities seized over $25,000 in fake goods leading up to the NHL's Winter Classic in Washington. [Washington Post]
  • Minnesota Wild defenseman Keith Ballard is mulling retirement after the devastating hit he took from Matt Martin of the New York Islanders in early December. He hasn't played since. [Star Tribune]
  • A European hockey league goalie scored the worst own goal of the year. Seriously, it's really bad. [Puck Daddy]
  • And lastly, here's your daily Edmonton Oilers blooper. Watch as they do the most Edmonton Oiler thing ever and blow a 2-on-0 without even getting a shot off. [SB Nation]
