Montreal Canadiens Links

  • Despite the narrow margins of victory the Habs definitely deserve to be up 3-0 in this series. Especially when you take in account the scoring chances and possession numbers. [Metro]
  • The Habs were awarded an off day on Monday after a big 2-1 overtime victory over the Ottawa Senators in Game 3 on Sunday. The team trekked to Mont-Tremblant for a much deserved day of rest and relaxation. Brandon Prust, Lars Eller, Torrey Mitchell and Jeff Petry met with the media and say that they don't want to change anything about their game. [TSN]
  • The Senators came out absolutely flying in their most physical game of the series. But as Bob McKenzie says, the Canadiens took their best punch and responded. [Montreal 690]
  • It is expected that the team will provide an update on Nathan Beaulieu's status after today's practice in Saint-Jovite. Beaulieu is day-to-day with an "upper body" injury after taking a huge hit from Senators captain Erik Karlsson[Sportsnet]
  • Things are also intense off the ice. A fight broke out between fans in the stands following Sunday's game. [National Post]
  • Through three playoff games, Carey Price is undefeated with a 1.96 goals against average and a .933 save percentage. The star goalie continues to make effortless saves, which begs the question: Does he have any weaknesses? [TVA]
  • Montreal mayor Denis Coderre is a busy man, but he's often found sporting his Canadiens jersey at the Bell Centre. Vincent Cauchy caught up with Coderre to dig into his Habs roots. [Canadiens]

Around the League and Elsewhere
