Montreal Canadiens Links

  • Carey Price was named the NHL's second star for the month of February. The Habs goalie posted a 9-1-1 record while recording a ridiculous 1.34 goals against average and a .949 save percentage with two shutouts. Minnesota Wild goalie Devan Dubnyk was named the first star, while Washington Capitals stud Alex Ovechkin was the third star. [La Presse]
  • Ahead of tonight's game, San Jose Sharks defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic had some really good words for Price. However, he added that he plans on breaking his Sochi 2014 teammate's 10-game win streak on the road. [TVA]
  • What will general manager Marc Bergevin and the Canadiens do ahead of this afternoon's 3 p.m. ET trade deadline? If last year is any indication, we might not know until the very last minute. [RDS]
  • In one of the weirdest editions of "The Duel" that you will ever see, Brendan Gallagher and P.K. Subban put their paternal instincts to the test. [Canadiens]
  • Lastly, this won't make you feel too good. Fresh off being traded to the Anaheim Ducks, Jiri Sekac showed off his incredible skill, making a beautiful saucer pass to Corey Perry for the goal. It's Sekac's first point with his new team. We miss you already, Jiri! [SB Nation]

Around the League and Elsewhere

  • The New York Rangers and the Phoenix Coyotes pulled off a pre-deadline day blockbuster deal. The Coyotes sent defenseman Keith Yandle to the Rangers in exchange for forward Anthony Duclair, defenseman John Moore, a conditional first round pick in 2016 and a second round pick in 2015.

  • Original six and division rivals the Detroit Red Wings made a splash yesterday, acquiring former Canadiens forward Erik Cole from the Dallas Stars[Winging It In Motown]
  • The Washington Capitals also made a decent move, landing veteran Curtis Glencross from the Calgary Flames[Jaspers Rink]
  • Speaking of the Caps, Alex Ovechkin scored his NHL leading 40th goal of the season yesterday, which stood up as the eventual game-winner. Yes, they blanked the Toronto Maple Leafs. He would add his 41st later in the game as well. [YouTube]
  • Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp may seek legal action after rumours surfaced on the internet that he is the cause of tension in the locker room. Sharp said: "I feel like you hear things said about people all the time, it’s like anybody can type something on a computer and get away with it and not be held responsible or accountable. I mentioned earlier, it is laughable, it’s comical, but when it affects your family, when you’ve got two little girls at home, and your parents are calling you, it takes a toll." [Sportsnet]
  • Patrick Kearns offers an interesting read on the KHL. With Russia's economy being threatened, North American's playing in the league are facing a rather difficult situation. [The Guardian]
  • Lastly, want to catchup on every rumour and trade in one place today? SB Nation has got you covered. Seriously, do it! We promise we won't tell your boss. [SB Nation]
