Hard to feel anything but cheated by last night’s result. For roughly 57 minutes, the Canadiens played shutdown hockey, limiting the Sabres to a handful of quality scoring chances.
According to Marc Antoine Godin, a pretty reliable source whose Twitter feeds are worth following.
What’s a Thursday without a Habs game lined up in the evening? Empty, that’s what. On the positive side, the time off gives all the teams with games in hand the chance to play out some of those games, so we can get a more accurate idea of our playoff position by the time we face the Leafs on Saturday night.
Apparently, Gauthier and Plekanec’s agent have broken off contract talks, and won’t resume them until the end of the season so as to avoid becoming a distraction.

- Is it time for us to start looking ahead in the standings, not behind?
- Tomas Plekanec shows last night why he’s worth re-signing. Intelligent, diligent player at both ends of the ice. These kinds of goals aren’t sexy, but they are vitally important in four-point games with teams chasing us in the standings.
Yikes. Here are my top 5 worst:
#5 Florida Panthers This logo looks like a children’s book illustration in the eighties. I can’t even describe the background colour. Let’s go with fluorescent peach. I think I may have seen it in chiffon once.
Yes, our Montreal Canadiens are mired in mediocrity. Have been for over a decade. We can’t hit, skate, score, or keep the damn puck out of our own net (details, I know). But in this time of despair, at least we have the specimen that is Kirk Muller to keep us warm on those lonely nights at sea. Is it wrong to want your team to take more penalties just so the camera pans to the bench and you get a glimpse of Captain Kirk? Kidding, kidding … mostly.
According to Lyle Richardson, the Habs are shopping Paul Mara. The market for horrendous, lumbering, slow, soon-to-be UFA defensemen? Not so strong, I’d imagine.
Meh. A marginal NHL player flipped for a second-rounder who has yet to play a minute in the NHL. Call it cutting our losses and move on.
