The Habs were hosting the Red Wings on Monday night as Tomas Plekanec played his 1000th NHL game; having played all but 17 of them in the Bleu, Blanc, et Rouge. And he scored! Niemi got the start once more with Price still ailing from the flu and the game got a little bit nuts.
It’s a two-parter! Double your fun! We open with Zach recapping game 4 for The Recency Bias and then it’s the big pod as Sean joins to talk Shea Weber’s captaincy, say good-bye to Max Pacioretty, look into the future, and draft the top 10 Habs media members.
With tribute paid to the 1993 Stanley Cup championship team the Los Angeles Kings were the visitors as your Montreal Canadiens opened up the 2018-2019 home schedule on Thursday night with a 3-0 loss.
The Habs picked up their first win of the season in their second game giving them 3 out of 4 points to start the season on the road. Not bad at all. Paul Byron made his mark with a pair in this one as the Canadiens out-played the Penguins in every aspect and look like a whole different club from last year.
Your Montreal Canadiens’ 2018-2019 season kicked-off in Toronto on Wednesday night and though it’s a day late, Zach is back for another season of The Recency Bias. While Toronto’s stars showed up enough to deliver two points for the potential powerhouse Maple Leafs, the Habs threw out a solid showing as Jesperi Kotkaniemi made his NHL debut and picked up an assist in the effort.
Oh shiiiiit. They’re back. It’s a post Labour Day return to the pod for Sean and Zach as they go through every other NHL team and ask: would you rather be them than the Habs? Sprinkled in plenty on Max Pacioretty, Galchenyuk for Domi, the draft, Marc Bergevin, Habs Twitter and more!
Sean and Zach gather in the pod-pod for the first time in some time to throw out potential ways to fix the Montreal Canadiens. From President Koivu to trading Weber & Price, and everything in between, this episode tries to figure out the best path forward for a struggling organization. Plus, talk about the playoffs!
