Jets Slumping at Worst Possible Time

One often hears, from NHL players, coaches, and media, about the importance of heading into playoffs on the right foot. Indeed, reaching peak performance at the right time and entering the postseason with confidence are paramount for any team entertaining notions of hosting pro hockey’s top prize. Therefore, it’s not ideal that Winnipeg Jets’ head coach Paul Maurice, over the past few weeks as what’s supposed to be a deep Stanley Cup Run inches ever-closer, has described his team’s play as...

Aleksander Barkov scores amazing goal with between-the-legs shot

Florida Panthers center Aleksander Barkov made his case for goal of the year with an incredible shot between his legs for the game-winning goal during Sunday's game against Montreal.It happened in the second period as the Canadiens misplayed the puck at center ice. The Panthers deflected the puck and Barkov picked it up and made a rush for the net. The Canadiens defense was caught out of position, leading to a breakaway against goaltender Carey Price. At full speed with defender Victor Mete ...

Canadiens Best Deadline Targets

Over the last few weeks, the Montreal Canadiens have amped up their play and now look like a legitimate playoff contender. A few weeks back, I wrote about how general manager Marc Bergevin will likely make depth trades before the deadline as he continues to hold onto to his budding young core. Since that time, Bergevin has added depth on defense with Christian Folin and bolstered the fourth line with the additions of Dale Weise and Nate Thompson. In the last 10 games, the Canadiens are 5-3-2 wit...

The Likeliest Canadiens Opponents in the First Round

It’s about time to face the fact the Montreal Canadiens are likely to make the playoffs. The next logical step is to consider who their potential playoffs opponents in the first round will be. Of course, nothing is certain, least of all any of the matchups listed below. And the Canadiens are far from out the woods, in their efforts to clinch a spot in the first place.

The Truth Regarding The Montreal Canadiens

from Brendan Kelly of the Montreal Gazettd, The Canadiens are a wild-card team. Sorry to bring you all crashing down to Earth, but that’s the truth. This is not about hating or trying to be negative. It’s about trying to be realistic. The Habs are better than last year’s bottom-feeder team, but that’s really not much of an achievement. Is the future so bright you need to wear shades? Maybe. One of the things that disturbs me the most in the hockey culture ici is so many people buy...

Tomas Tatar scored and Carey Price made 35 saves for Montreal, which has lost consecutive games for the first time since early January. With the game tied at a 1 midway through the third, Boyle and Arvidsson struck 2:24 apart to pull away. Boyle’s goal, his firs...

Kings forward Michael Amadio credits trip to minors

EL SEGUNDO — Michael Amadio has been up and down this season, splitting time between the Kings and their AHL affiliate in Ontario. That’s partly why he hadn’t scored an NHL goal since Dec. 23, until he found the net Thursday during the second period of a 4-3 shootout loss to Vancouver at Staples Center. Amadio, who was recalled Jan. 31 after spending a month at Ontario, was more pumped than usual as he celebrated in demonstrative fashion. Amadio, just 22, is in his second season with the Kings (...

Kings’ Oscar Fantenberg making most of added minutes

LOS ANGELES — Oscar Fantenberg was averaging 15:31 of time on ice for the Kings this season ahead of Thursday night’s game against Vancouver at Staples Center. But he is playing considerably more than that since the team traded fellow defenseman Jake Muzzin to Toronto in late January. In the six games since that move, Fantenberg has been on the ice for an average of 18:40, and he’s taking full advantage of the extra time. Beyond shoring up his defense, he has scored his only two goals of the sea...

Canadiens’ 4th Line Gets Better Real Quick

On Feb. 9, the Montreal Canadiens went toe-to-toe with the Toronto Maple Leafs in an exciting 4-3 overtime loss. The pace was fast, defense looked ‘optional’ during stretches of the game, and it left everyone wanting more come April. Well, almost everyone. One of the key takeaways was the poor play of the Canadiens’ fourth line. For the trio of Nicolas Deslauriers, Michael Chaput and Matthew Peca, it was a night to forget.

Kings’ Trevor Lewis thrilled to be back after three ‘frustrating’ months

EL SEGUNDO — Trevor Lewis didn’t know what it was like to miss three months of a season, because he never had an injury that kept him out that long. Until this season. The forward on Monday night returned to action with the Kings after not having played since Nov. 13 because of a fractured foot. The Kings lost 6-4 at Washington, but Lewis had an assist and wore a smile on his face after practice Wednesday suggesting he got a lot more than that out of it. “Yeah, it was great,” said Lewis, whose t...

Wild-Card Canadiens Not Out of Playoff Woods Yet

The fate of the Montreal Canadiens is in their hands. Two thirds of the way through the season, that’s all you can really ask for, seeing as few predicted the Habs would be in playoff contention past the holiday break. Yet, here we are. With 26 games left to play, they are 31-18-7 (69 points) and in the first Eastern Conference wild-card position, clear of Spot No. 9 by five points, which is undeniably huge. It translates to an 88.1% chance of making the playoffs as of Feb. 13 according to sport...

Folin Is the Key to Canadiens Trade, Not Weise

True to his word, Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin has admirably played the trade market conservatively up to now. Despite appearances to the contrary, that sentiment extends to the modest blockbuster he swung with the Philadelphia Flyers, where he got depth-defenseman Christian Folin and re-acquired forward Dale Weise in the process. Bergevin Buys Low, Doesn’t Rent Even though Bergevin said he wouldn’t be in the rental business, Folin will admittedly be an unrestricted free ag...

Continuing his quest to improve his team for the future, Kings general manager Rob Blake on Monday announced fourth-line forward Nate Thompson has been traded to the Montreal Canadiens for a fourth-round pick in the 2019 NHL draft.

The Kings have struggled all season to stay in the hunt for a playoff berth, and entered their game Monday at Washington eight points out of the Western Conference’s final playoff spot.

Jets Need Defensive Reinforcements

It’s that time of the hockey season where every team brings out their wish list for the trade deadline, and much like last season, the Winnipeg Jets seem to have a need up front for a second-line center. That may not be their most pressing need, however. When the Jets dropped three straight games to the San Jose Sharks, Montreal Canadiens and Ottawa Senators between Feb. 5 and 9, they exposed some holes in their defensive game. Fortunately, this is the time of the season to fill those hole...
