John Scott’s NHL All-Star Game Odyssey: Now in storybook form

To say that the Odyssey John Scott experienced en route to an appearance and captaincy at the 2016 NHL All-Star Game last week would be a understatement of Greek epic proportions. And while he relished each and every moment leading up to his MVP-winning performance at the league’s annual showcase, there were pitfalls along the way, something the Arizona Coyotes-turned-Montreal...

Michel Therrien: Canadiens are aware they’re in tough shape for playoffs

After riding high to start the season, the Montreal Canadiens have completely imploded. As I’ve covered in-depth before, losing Carey Price, questionable coaching decisions and a lack of goals has decimated a squad which once posted an NHL-est 17-4-2 record to lead the NHL. For a slumping Montreal squad, last night against the Buffalo Sabres was no different. The Canadiens...

Could John Scott be the 'spark' the Montreal Canadiens need?

In the bevy of tweets congratulating John Scott on his MVP performance in the NHL All-Star Game and subsequent NHL First Star of the Week, there was the obligatory chirp from the Montreal Canadiens’ account — you know, the team who got him in a trade a couple weeks ago and then immediately assigned him to their AHL affiliate.The tweet brings focus back to the Habs themselves...

The Fall Of The Montreal Canadiens

As we sit and prepare for All-Star weekend, it seems like forever ago since the Montreal Canadiens began the season with a historic 9-0-0 start. Most people, including myself, thought the long wait of 23 years without a Stanley Cup appearance would finally come to an end. It seemed like this scenario could play out, but the NHL season is long and the hockey gods have not looked upon...

Video: P.K. Subban scores goal from center ice, earns unsportsmanlike penalty

P.K. Subban is one of the more impressive players in the league. He plays in one of the most hockey crazy markets and still succeeds. Players have folded under that pressure a numerous amount of times but Subban keeps on chugging. So, when we scored a center ice goal that didn’t look like a fluke, none of you should have been surprised. The goal was impressive as the Jackets goaltender...

3 reasons the Montreal Canadiens have completely bombed

The Montreal Canadiens were riding high to start the 2015-16 campaign, reeling off nine straight wins to kick off the season. By November 25th, with a 5-1 victory over the New York Rangers, they had an NHL-best 17-4-2 record – but a huge problem emerged as Carey Price went down with a lower-body injury. Price going on the IR completely changed the trajectory of the Canadiens season...

Just how bad have the Montreal Canadiens been lately?

The Montreal Canadiens have been playing bad hockey for almost two months now. Their nine-game winning streak to start the 2015-16 season seems like a distant memory. At the end of November, the Canadiens held on to a division lead, but that too seems like a distant memory. Just how bad have the Canadiens been during their slide? Maybe worse than you thought.

Francois Lacasse / Getty Images By: Mitch Cole (@DirtyWaterBuzz) A hot topic among Montreal Canadiens fans right now is whether or not head coach Michel Therrien should be fired.

P.K. Subban says announcers can 'just start calling me Denzel'

Every once in a while in a post-game media scrum, there's an off-the-wall question that takes a turn away from talking about the actual game.

Subban how he felt about the way that French-language broadcasters pronounced his name.Not that the question is that far out of left field, given recent news...
