Zach is taking some time off, so RabidHabs.com deputy editor Ian Boisvert steps in to cover the post-game mini-pod. Jason Zucker scores a hat trick for Minnesota as the Wild take this one 3-0. The Habs are having issues with injuries, video review, and making average goalies look great.
Montreal’s third-string goalie faced-off against Vegas’s fourth-string goalie on Tuesday night as the Canadiens kicked-off their six-game home stand with a nice win in a potential trap game. Brendan Gallagher keeps it going and Pacioretty is back on pace as your Habs inch closer to getting the season entirely back on track.
Charlie Lindgren delivered Montreal’s first victory in Chicago since 2002 as the Habs completed a four-game road trip with six of a possible eight points and are edging closer to turning their season around.

Sean and Zach pull out the duct tape and chicken wire for another episode of The Big Show, albeit a rickety ride, so apologies for the sound issues (again). New bit on this episode called ‘Believe’ and classic bits like ‘Buying or Selling’ – which is essentially the same thing as ‘Believe’ – and ‘Paging Dr. Recchi’. Plus talk about the inevitable Duchene trade, Price’s issues, and whether or not you can be gritty in a turtleneck.
The Habs went digging in Winnipeg and came up with two of the most important points of this season so far. Brendan Gallagher and Andrew Shaw went to work when another well played game looked like it was about to turn into another painful loss. Zach asserts that if the Canadiens season turns around, this win could turn out to be a pivot point.
Something’s wrong with Carey Price. And when something is wrong with Carey Price, something is wrong with your Montreal Canadiens. At least Rabid Habs’ own Robert Brown stops by on this episode to make Zach feel old and talk about the Canadiens’ coming six-game home stand.
Goal, goal, goal, goal, goal, goal, goal, goal. It was a parade of goals in the Canadian capital on Monday night as your Montreal Canadiens embarrassed Craig Anderson, Erik Karlsson and the Ottawa Senators. The Habs’ luck, it seems, may have turned.
