Montreal Canadiens

  • Price is sporting a phenomenal .952 SV% since December 9, which is 0.013% better than the goaltender with the next highest SV%. He is Montreal's undisputed MVP. [TSN]
  • With Carey Price having passed Patrick Roy on the Canadiens all-time shutout list, take a look at how Price's current season stacks up against Roy's best season as a Canadien. [Sportsnet]
  • Could Buffalo's Torrey Mitchell be a potential trade target? Mitchell is a strong skater and is cheap to acquire, but doesn't fit any pressing needs for the Habs. [Sportsnet]
  • Listen as a conversation about whom the best player to be selected in the 2012 Entry Draft descends into a discussion about whether the Habs are a serious playoff contender. No offence Steve, but Galchenyuk is the best player selected from the 2012 draft. [Steve Dangle Podcast]
  • Jacob de la Rose's solid play has bumped him up to the third line. Not too shabby for a 19-year-old who has only spent half a season playing on North American ice. [Sportsnet]
  • The second line of Galchenyuk, Plekanec and Gallagher continues to produce more points than Montreal's first line. The relative youth of Galchenyuk and Gallagher makes this accomplishment all the more impressive. [Pensburgh]
  • Ice Level makes a triumphant return! Listen to the first episode of season two, right here! [EOTP]

Around The League And Elsewhere

  • What does it feel like to be the only women playing professional hockey in North America? Only goaltender Shannon Szabados can tell. [CBC]
  • In light of Steve Montador's untimely passing, Hayley Wickenheiser's shares some of her memories of him. A warning in advance, the post is absolutely heartbreaking. [Facebook]
  • Reginald Savage was a trailblazer for black hockey players in the QMJHL. He not only overcame racism but also worked to educate his teammates on overcoming their prejudices. [RDS - French]
  • In the race for the Calder Trophy, it does not seem like any other rookie is going to catch Nashville forward Filip Forsberg. [NHL Numbers]
  • After being called a diver by Ryan Getzlaf, Alex Ovechkin fired back some shots in response. Predictably, the Ducks captain didn't take to kindly to it. [TSN]
  • The world's longest hockey game came to an end after 250 straight hours and raised $800,000 for the Alberta Cancer Foundation. Hats off to the fantastic effort put forth by the 40 skaters who participated in this event. [National Post]
