Montreal Canadiens News and Notes

  • Carey Price has many, many fans, including Flyers’ goalie Carter Hart, who had the chance to talk to him for the first time with both teams in the bubble. [Twitter]
  • Phillip Danault’s three-penalty game earned him some good natured ribbing from Brendan Gallagher, but he’s not the only one taking more penalties this post season. [Yahoo Sports]
  • Members of the Montreal media took a knee during the anthems to show their support for the Black and indigenous communities who face systemic racism and racially motivated violence. Disappointingly, there was no on-ice support to back up all the statements made on the subject earlier this spring. [Twitter]
