    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…

All times Eastern (ET). 7:00 pm Columbus @ Atlanta This is a matchup of two teams that are hanging in there, although the Blue Jackets are especially hot right now. Columbus won six of their last eight games, most recently shutting…

  5. Minnesota Wild place Guillaume Latendresse on IR

    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…

    After a light three-game slate to come back from the Halloween holiday weekend, the league sports another fairly light slate of games. Here is a preview of today’s four contests. All times are Eastern (ET). 7:00 pm Montreal @ Columbus Both of these teams are surprising successes so far. The Montreal Canadiens are tied with…

    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…

    Nino Niederreiter

    Should the New York Islanders keep Nino Niederreiter at the NHL level and lose one of his bargain entry-level contract years?

    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…

    A couple weeks ago, it seemed like Montreal Canadiens defenseman Andrei Markov was on the road to recovery, but Louis Jean of Sportsnet.ca reports that the talented offensive blueliner isn’t feeling strong enough for a return just yet. The Russian blueliner was hoping to resume play on Thursday against the New Jersey Devils but says…

  13. Patrice Cormier changes his mind, pleads guilty to assault charges

    After originally pleading not guilty, Atlanta Thrashers prospect Patrice Cormier decided to plead guilty to assault charges stemming from a hit he delivered on Mikael Tam last season. The elbow left Tam convulsing on the ice in horrifying scene, as he suffered from brain trauma and teeth damage. Here is the National Post story. Former…

    I tackled the typical points/goals/plus-minus leaders in an earlier post, so I thought I’d take a look at some of the odd stats from the first week of hockey. 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…

  17. Report: Nashville Predators place Sergei Kostitsyn on IR because of broken toe

    Oct 8, 2010, 5:10 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Almost every team in the NHL is taking some kind of gamble on a “wild card” or “X-factor” player. Sometimes they’re solid veterans who could make the most of a plum job (see: Mike Comrie in Pittsburgh) or enigmatic talents whose decisions will leave just as many people guessing as their skills (example: Nikolai Zherdev…

    Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment president and CEO Richard Peddie was asked for his thoughts on the job Leafs GM Brian Burke is doing with the team, and you have to wonder if maybe Peddie’s underlings are showing him tapes of other teams winning and calling them the Leafs. Shi Davidi of The Globe And…

  19. Thrashers start the season without team captain, opt for three alternates

    Oct 6, 2010, 9:54 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    It’s a rarity in the NHL but on occasion a team will sometimes go without a team captain. The Minnesota Wild went without a permanent one for years before choosing Mikko Koivu. The Montreal Canadiens last year went without a captain in the wake of former captain Saku Koivu leaving the team. This year, the…

  20. Nino Niederreiter makes the New York Islanders' opening day roster

    Oct 6, 2010, 6:20 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    It’s not surprising that No.1 pick Taylor Hall will make the Edmonton Oilers as a rookie, but as you go deeper into the first round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, it becomes less expected. So I was a little surprised to hear that Nino Niederreiter, the fifth pick of the draft, made the cut…
