Montreal Canadiens

  • Christian Thomas did pretty well last afternoon against the Caps, garnering praise from Michel Therrien for being quick on the puck. Can his speed give him an advantage over Brandon Prust? [La Presse] (French)

  • Carey Price just tied Patrick Roy for fifth-most shutouts in Canadians history.  [EOTP]

  • "Get to Know Your Canadiens: Best excuse." So everyone's best excuse is traffic and/or car trouble, but Subban goes above and beyond.

  • Kerry Fraser explains why Subban and Kreider got matching minors for a non-fight. [TSN 690]

  • The Canadiens aren't the only ones with a win streak! Hamilton Bulldogs just won their sixth game, against the Iowa Wild.

Around the League and Elsewhere

  • In the first year of Rogers' new broadcast deal, ratings for regular season games have decreased from last year. They're blaming Numeris, the company that calculates the ratings for Canadian households. Odd, given that the World Juniors reached an all-time record just fine. [Globe and Mail]

  • Bob McKenzie speculates that Rob Blake is Shanahan's preferred candidate to replace GM Dave Nonis. Uh, good luck there, Shanahan. [The Score]

  • Watch GM Don Maloney's facepalm as the Arizona Coyotes lose 7-2 to the Ottawa Senators. Wow, you can watch the moment the light goes out of his eyes. [The Score]

  • There are no scientific evidence backing up the stem cell treatment Gordie Howe is receiving at his Mexican clinic, warns the director of McMaster University's Stem Cell and Cancer Research Institute. [CBC]

  • Check out this new player evaluation tool: ladder charts. You can (roughly) pinpoint every player's strengths/weaknesses after one quick scan. It also makes every player look like a RPG character, but in a good way. [Pensbugh]

Happy Super Bowl Sunday, guys!
