Canadiens storm Halak, New York Islanders posted on 01/22/2015

The Montreal Canadiens, not necessarily known for their quick starts, scored early goals in all three periods of a 6-4 victory over the visiting New York Islanders on Saturday night.

“It’s no surprise that we’re not a good starting team,” said Canadiens Dale Weise, whose tap-in goal in the second period equaled his career high in points scored (16), set last season. “For whatever reason that is, we wanted to focus on that tonight.”

Montreal is just (28-13-3) and ranks a meager 29th in the NHL in first-period productivity, ahead of only the Buffalo Sabres, with just 18 goals in 44 games, a slow start indeed.

Dustin Tokarski started in net for the Habs in place of Carey Price, who suffered an upper-body injury against the Colombus Blue Jackets on Wednesday night.

Montreal Canadiens Next Generation of Players Hope to Carry the Team Through the Season posted on 10/16/2014

The Montreal Canadiens won two playoff rounds last season and seem to have a few things going on for them. Marc Bergevin got P.K. Subban to sign an eight year contract. The decision to sign in Subban bore fruit seeing that he has been a great defenceman.  Tom Gilbert compliments Subban talent and his addition last season helped to improve their Defence. The power play has also been poor for this team and hopefully Subban and Markov can get it back to the top.

The team strength is in its structure that works outward from the net. Away from Subban, the team has a strong fourth line center Manny Malhotra. 6-foot-2 Jiri Sekac is a free agent who was signed into the team and had 11 goals and 17 assists in the last season.

Montreal made it to the playoffs without Carey Price. The goal tender was out due to his knee injury and is now back on the team. His good reflexes and overall goaltending talent, will be a boost for the team after spending a good part of the last season without him.
