Montreal Canadiens

  • Carey Price made 43 saves and stole the game for a 1-0 series clinching victory in Game 6 against the Ottawa Senators. The TSN panel breaks down Price's incredible performance. There's really no other way to put it: MVP! [TSN]
  • It was an intense series, and Brendan Gallagher was a thorn in the Senators side for all six games. Check out his awesome goal, which stood up as the eventual game and series-winner. [YouTube]
  • Speaking of Gallagher, he taunted Mark Stone about his wrist "injury". [CBC]
  • Head coach Michel Therrien also had his best game of the series (For example: FINALLY playing Lars Eller more than David Desharnais). The Habs head coach praised his goaltender for his unreal performance following the victory. [TVA]
  • Full marks to the Senators on an absolutely mind-blowing season. Check out the post-game handshakes and a nice salute from their hometown crowd. [TVA]
  • Lastly, this is so cool. [Canadiens]

Around the League and Elsewhere

  • Absolutely nothing is working out for Tampa Bay Lightning star Steven Stamkos, and that's good news for the Canadiens. [TVA]
  • Raise your hand if you thought the Calgary Flames were capable of winning a playoff series, let alone even making the post-season, in October. Okay, what about in January? Heck, did you even think it was possible in March? This team continues to defy the odds, and it's an incredible story; one that we simply can't get enough of. [Sportsnet]
  • The Flames will face Stanley Cup contenders in the Anaheim Ducks during the Western Conference semifinals beginning sometime this week. Here is a preview of the series from the guys over at That's Hockey 2Nite. [TSN]
  • After yet another disappointing season, the future of management and players in the Pittsburgh Penguins organization has been in question. David Morehouse, CEO and president of the Penguins, set the record straight over the weekend. He reassured everyone that general manager Jim Rutherford, head coach Mike Johnston and star players Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby are all safe, and will be back next season. [Puck Daddy]
  • Speaking of Crosby, he isn't quite ready to pack it in for the summer. The 27-year-old superstar will be joining Team Canada's already stacked roster at the IIHF World Championships. Crosby will join a roster that already consists of stars Matt Duchene, Jordan Eberle, Taylor Hall, Claude Giroux, Nathan MacKinnon, Tyler Seguin and Jason Spezza to name a few. One word: Gold. [TSN]
  • A local Chicago news station accidentally messed up their chyron after the Chicago Blackhawks Game 6 series clinching victory over the Nashville Predators on Saturday night. [SB Nation]
  • Speaking of mistakes from local newscasts, apparently an NBC affiliate in New York has absolutely no idea how the NHL playoffs work. [FanSided]
  • Lastly, get stoked, Edmonton Oilers fans. Connor McDavid goes full-Forsberg for a beautiful shorthanded breaking goal in the OHL playoffs. [Sportsnet]
