    Pittsburgh Penguins v Philadelphia Flyers

    Remember how Flyers defenseman Chris Pronger made himself into more of a villain during last year’s Stanley Cup finals when he was stealing pucks from the Chicago Blackhawks after they won the first two games of the series? It turns out Philadelphia’s puck burglar extraordinaire isn’t a fully reformed hockey criminal at large as Pronger…

    Montreal Canadiens defenseman Andrei Markov left tonight’s game with what looks like a knee injury. No, sadly, this is not a re-print of a story from last season.

    In the interest of injury-related housekeeping, here are two little tidbits. TSN reports that Tomas Plekanec missed tonight’s game against the Buffalo Sabres with “flu-like” symptoms. In the off-season I said that the Montreal Canadiens basically chose Plekanec and goalie Carey Price over playoff hero Jaroslav Halak. That decision actually is working out well for…

    Guillaume Latendresse

    Much like Mike Ribeiro in Dallas, Minnesota Wild forward Guillaume Latendresse thrived once he left the glaring spotlight that comes with being a member of the Montreal Canadiens. After scoring only three points in 23 games for Montreal in 2009-10, Latendresse scored 25 goals and 12 assists to compile 37 points in 55 games in…

    While the Columbus Blue Jackets were able to shutout the Montreal Canadiens last night 3-0 in a mostly lifeless effort by the Habs, there was one guy who showed up in a big way for Montreal. Goaltender Carey Price did his part to try and keep his team in the game, highlighted by this series…

    Some might say that the team is better off without him, at least if they just look at wins and losses. They made the playoffs with him playing hurt or missing games completely, then beat the Pittsburgh Penguins in the second round of the playoffs after Matt Cooke sidelined him with a vicious but clean…

    Andrei Kostitsyn’s Montreal Canadiens career has been, to this point, a bit controversial and over-dramatic. So far this year, however, everything has been forgiven. Kostitsyn’s fifth goal of the year last night sent the Montreal fans home abundantly happy and excited to have another goal scoring threat as he scored in overtime beating Coyotes goaltender…

The Russian blueliner was hoping to resume play on Thursday against the New Jersey Devils but says…

Small sample sizes can make for some strange numbers, so enjoy this look around the league. (Feel free to spout some strange stats of your own…
