Montreal Canadiens

  • Carey Price has had a unbelievable season in net. The Canadiens' goaltender has allowed an often outshot, out possessed and low scoring team to clinch the Atlantic Division. Price's spectacular play has truly kept the Habs afloat this season. [NHL]
  • With the playoffs set to take off later today, certain players will be looked upon to elevate their play in the postseason. The Habs will look to Lars Eller, Brendan Gallagher and David Desharnais to provide some well needed points. [Globe and Mail]
  • The upcoming match up between the Habs & the Senators should be a very close fought battle according to the series preview [Métro]
  • Speaking of the playoffs, the Montreal Canadiens' game presentation staff will look to better their own performance when it comes to producing the club's pre game shows. [NY Times]
  • Marc Bergevin shared his thoughts on the team he has assembled. He addressed the concerns surrounding Montreal's power play, Alex Galchenyuk's production and the slow starts had by recent trade deadline acquisitions. [TSN 690]
  • Defenseman Andrei Markov responded in typical Markov-ian fashion, when asked about having played 81 games this season. [Sportsnet]
"Lots of guys played 82, so what’s to get excited about?"
  • Take a look at PK Subban's regular season shot totals, and especially the differences in Subban's shooting tendencies while on the powerplay versus 5-on-5 play. [EOTP]
  • Tim Thompson has created plenty of musical montages for the hockey fans to enjoy over the course of the playoffs, before being abruptly let go of by Rogers. Luckily for him and for Habs fans, the Canadiens have reached out to Thompson to bring back his amazing creations. [Habsloyalist]
  • Watch as EOTP's own Andrew Berkshire explains why Ottawa's ticket restrictions are ultimately causing more harm than good, particularly when dealing with out of market fans. [CTV News]
