Martin St-Louis is using preseason as a stress test, not a tryout

Martin St-Louis is using preseason as a stress test, not a tryout

Photo by Claus Andersen/ While the fans may want something flashier, the Canadiens are using preseason to see how much their players can withstand. The Montreal Canadiens have played four preseason games, and some fans are already disappointed. Fair enough. They haven’t won a game, and although they have provided some offence in the last two games, there are legitimate reasons to be disappointed in terms of entertainment value. But anyone who looks at this year’s preseason as a barometer of this team’s capabilities are missing the forest for the trees. It’s...

Nick Robertson Should Make the Toronto Maple Leafs

The Toronto Maple Leafs will begin the regular season in just a little over a week. That means that the Toronto Maple Leafs will start cutting down the number of players in camp. One player they won’t be cutting – unless they’ve gone and lost their damn minds – is Nick Robertson.

Bottom Six Minutes: Cayden Primeau deserved better

Bottom Six Minutes: Cayden Primeau deserved better

Photo by Chris Tanouye/ The Canadiens dropped their fourth straight pre-season game, through no fault of their goaltender. Still chasing their first win of the pre-season, the Montreal Canadiens took a short trip down the highway to face the Ottawa Senators on Saturday night. They didn’t get that win, and though they made it to their first overtime of the pre-season, it was hard to do much when they did so having to kill a penalty once there. In a 5-4 loss, normally a measure of blame can be laid at the feet of a given team’s goaltender, but this wasn’t the case...

Montreal Canadiens: Three Times The Habs Failed To Capitalize On Carey Price’s Greatness

The Montreal Canadiens have not won a Stanley Cup since 1993. That is a drought that is sure to reach 30 years following the upcoming season, a season in which they are more likely to finish last then first. They did have some opportunities to end that Stanley Cup drought in the past three decades.

Elvis bails out anemic offense as Jackets beat Capitals 2-1

Joseph Maiorana-USA TODAY Sports This wasn’t pretty, but some players stood out As head coach Brad Larsen noted in the postgame press conference, it’s been a hard camp for the Columbus Blue Jackets and they didn’t quite have their legs under them tonight. As someone who was in the stands tonight, all I can say is BOY HOWDY. Feels good to get a win, but the Jackets had more stars playing and should have been able to win by more. They should have managed more than 20 shots on goal, and allowed fewer than 58 shots attempts against. Let’s take a look at who stood...

The Chicago Blackhawks were undone by a trio of third-period goals from the visiting Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night, losing 3-0 at the United Center. The first two periods were scoreless but had some standout moments. First, a neat pass from Phillipp Kurashev set up Lukas Reichel with a golden opportunity during the opening frame: Lukas Reichel is denied by Alex Nedeljkovic at the doorstep. #Blackhawks pic.twitter.com/3ofVg19Zco— Charlie Roumeliotis (@CRoumeliotis)...
