Montreal Canadiens news and notes

  • Brendan Gallagher is not a big fan of how games are decided after 65 minutes. In his own words: “I have no moves and I hate shootout.” [TSN 690]
  • Andrei Markov’s teammates look to him for quiet leadership. [La Presse]
  • Alex Galchenyuk is finally emerging as the number one center the Canadiens need. Question remains whether or not they trust him with number one duties. [Sportsnet]
  • In case you missed it, the ref cam made its return on Saturday night, and provided us with some great footage:
  • You can get a game worn Lukas Vejdemo jersey and support a great cause. [Movember]
  • Gallagher expressed his concern for Craig Cunningham, who collapsed in the AHL. [Sportsnet]
  • First-round pick Mikhail Sergachev is in a bit of a slump right now, and that’s ok. [AATH]
  • A bunch of scouts attended last night’s game between Calgary and Buffalo. Three Canadiens representatives were there, including Rick Dudley. What does it mean? Absolutely nothing since that’s their job, but hey, we can always have some fun with wild speculation! Hey, maybe it does mean something... [Twitter]
  • IceCaps players got together for dinner and a movie
