The big show is back baby! Sean and Zach returned to the podcast this week to talk about our oddly assembled Montreal Canadiens, the struggling Ottawa Senators, the high-water mark of the Marc Bergevin era, Alex Galchenyuk and Montreal’s tradition of chasing players out of town, and the dark future of the Habs. Plus, new bits like ‘Subban’s Celebrity Selfies’ + ‘Learn to Love the Lockout’ + ‘The Forbidden Price Conversation,’ as well as an important update from Wrangler Jeans.
Your Habs bad-luck-charm is back with RabidHabs Deputy Editor Ian Boisvert sitting in for Zach. The Habs picked up a point against the Flames, but after taking a lead into the third, it probably should have been two. Galchenyuk’s playing time is becoming an issue, and Claude Julien’s overtime strategy is costing the Habs points.
For the first time since Carey Price’s return some six games ago, your Montreal Canadiens lost. St. Louis Blues had lost three-straight coming into this one and they looked like they wanted it. It was an entertaining contest, but in the end the Habs fell just short thanks to an ugly bounce goal the Blues. Still a big night for the Man Mountain though.
Whoa. The Habs pounded the Red Wings on Saturday night to a 10-1 score. Rather absurd really. Paul Byron had his first career hat-trick, Galchenyuk had his first 4-point game, the 4th line finally scored a goal, actually they scored multiple goals, and Carey Price won his 5th straight since his return.
The Habs were without Weber and Drouin for this second game in as many nights, but your Montreal Canadiens just keep rolling, winning their 4th straight since Carey Price’s return, playing themselves back into a playoff spot, for the night at least. Gallagher now has 12 goals on the season and Patches had himself a 4-point night in the beat down in Motown.
Carey Price continues to power your Montreal Canadiens. The Habs hosted the struggling Sens on Wednesday night and delivered a 7th consecutive loss to Ottawa in a game that featured a Jonathan Drouin penalty shot! Plus, the Schlemko has arrived.
They’re playing the hits! Another spectacular start from Carey Price and your Montreal Canadiens are feeling like the Habs of old once more, which is to say outshot, outplayed, but #31 delivers the Ws. Gallagher and Petry were pretty good too.
