Montreal Canadiens news and notes

  • Dynamic offensive finish isn’t one of Ryan Poehling’s strengths. At least it wasn’t until last night:
  • The prospect also had an assist and scored the game-winning goal in overtime. [SCSUHuskies]
  • If you missed the news after last night’s game, Victor Mete sustained a hand injury versus the New York Islanders. Newly acquired defenceman Rinat Valiev has been recalled to replace him. [EOTP | Mete | Valiev]
  • Andrew Shaw and Paul Byron sit down for a nice fireside discussion. [YouTube]
  • The Canadiens showed interest in QMJHL free agent Alexandre Barré-Boulet, but they seem to have been too late getting involved in the process. [TVA Sports]

Around the league and elsewhere

  • Taylor Hall extended his points streak last night. He has to be in serious consideration for the Hart Trophy. [Sportsnet]
  • High winds may be a problem in the Stadium Series game between the Washington Capitals and Toronto Maple Leafs. As of now, the game is still set to take place. [NHL.com]
  • While the New York Rangers have given up on this season, Henrik Lundqvist is clearly not ready to throw in the towel just yet, making 50 saves last night for the second game in a row. [NHL.com]
  • Former NHL linesman Don Henderson’s lawsuit against the Calgary Flames has been dismissed, with the judge ruling Dennis Wideman’s hit of an official is something the NHL should handle itself. [CTV]
