Montreal Canadiens news and notes

  • Philip Danault was a game time decision yesterday after being sick (and opened the scoring with a sweet assist by Nathan Beaulieu), and the Habs were down two centres and a defenceman. They sailed to a decisive win vs. the Devils registering 48 shots, and remain in first place overall. [NHL]

  • But seriously, he was just defending himself. Homer alert: I approve. [Sportsnet]
  • Cory Schneider on Price’s ‘meltdown’
  • And Palmieri didn’t seem too upset about it either
  • Anyway happy wife, happy life, am I right?
  • Don’t forget to buy your tickets to see Les Canadiennes take on the Inferno Saturday at the Bell Centre. [NHL]

  • Adding to the injury list, Greg Pateryn will miss eight weeks due to a broken ankle. [RDS]
