Montreal Canadiens

  • Defenseman Jeff Petry has been easily the best player acquired by the Habs at the trade deadline. Though he is still adjusting to new systems, Petry's solid play has allowed the Canadiens to rest Markov and Subban. [Montreal Gazette]
  • PK Subban shared his thoughts on Carey Price's performance, playing against the Lightning and the struggling Maple Leafs. [Sportsnet]

"I've always said Carey Price is the best."

  • Running out of ways to describe just how Hart trophy worthy Price's season has been, is the best type of problems for Habs' fans to have. [NHL]
  • While Carey Price continues to make a push for the Hart Trophy, history is not on his side. As the Islanders' John Tavares continues to surge, voters may be swayed by the New York captain's points rather than Price's save percentage. [TSN 690]
  • As much as Price's stellar play has masked a lot of the Habs' deficiencies this season, it will all be for naught, if the Canadiens can't figure out a way to spark their struggling offence. [Sports Illustrated]
  • Speaking of a struggling offence, here are some lineup changes which might just be able to get the Canadiens scoring again. [EOTP]

  • The Tampa Bay Lightning are absolutely dominant at even-strength, posting a score-adjusted 53.9 Fenwick%. However, their achilles' heel is definitely their abysmal special teams record. [TSN]
  • Watch as Henrik Lundqvist demonstrates just how focused a goaltender has to be in his crease. [Puck Daddy]
