Montreal Canadiens

  • Watch prospect Michael McCarron's Gordie Howe Hat Trick. [Youtube]

  • Carey Price currently leads the league in wins, GAA, save %, and shutouts, making it a unique convergence. If he maintains these stats, he’ll become the first modern era goalie in the Vezina voting to do so. Just give it to him already, guys. [In Goal]

  • How do other teams solve a problem like Carey Price? Run into him, apparently. Price has seen more than his share of crease crashers. [CBC]

  • Underlying numbers make Montreal's position very precarious without Price. How likely is a first round upset? [Sportsnet]

  • P.K. Subban ran into Jaromir Jagr at dinner on Friday, and he jokes that it was surreal to meet his boyhood idols he grew up watching. I live in Montreal and I have never ran into a hockey player. Maybe these guys just eat at fancier establishments than I do. [TSN]

  • Nice.

Around the League and Elsewhere

  • How important is the final stretch of the regular season before heading into the playoffs? Not very, mostly because good teams win more games (and more playoff games) in general. [CBS Sports]

  • Japan stuns host country Sweden in a 4-3 shootout upset, opening the 2015 IIHF World Women’s Championship. Would like to see what a rivalry looks like between these two, if they weren't so incredibly polite. [IIHF]

  • Also, the US team beat the Canadian team 4-2 at the world championships. Their powerplay is scarily efficient. [The Star]

  • Check out the schedule and TV info for the 2015 NCAA Hockey Tournament here! [SB Nation]

  • Tuukka Rask pulls himself out of a game versus the New York Rangers, but it's just a case of dehydration. [ESPN Boston]
