HabsAvs

Match Up

The Canadiens (4-1-0) welcome Patrick Roy and the Avalanche (1-3-1) to town Saturday night. The second home game of the season is set to start at 7:00 and will be broadcast on TVA-Sports, City and Altitude TV.

This is the first of two games between the Habs and Avs this season. Last year each team won the match they hosted handily in the two game season series. Thomas Vanek scored a hat trick in Montreal’s 6-3 victory when the teams last met, and Max Pacioretty and David Desharnais each collected a pair of assists.

What to Watch

After 4 games without a power play goal, the Habs went 2-for-3 with the man advantage against the Bruins Thursday, although the second was scored into an empty net. Jiri Sekac lit the lamp in the home opener for his first career NHL goal. His parents and girlfriend were in the stands to cheer him on.

The Avalanche come to town with Daniel Briere, Gabriel Landeskog, Nathan McKinnon, Jarome Igilna, Ryan O’Reilly, Matt Duchene, and one of the coldest offenses in the league. Colorado has only managed to put up 7 goals in 5 games and have already given up 17 goals against.

What’s at Stake

The Canadiens are off to a hot start and their 4-1-0 record has them on top of their division and in a tie with the New York …wait for it… Islanders for first place in the Eastern Conference. The Avalanche come to town light on goaltending and the Habs will want to take advantage of that.

Who’s Out

Alexei Emelin returned to the lineup Thursday from the upper body injury that forced him to miss two games. Nathan Beaulieu and Dale Weise were the healthy scratches when the Habs played their home opener, it will be interesting to see whether they draw back in for Saturday’s game.

Avalanche goalie Semyon Varlamov (groin) is already on injured reserve and now back-up Reto Berra (neck) is questionable for Saturday’s game after leaving early in Colorado’s 5-3 to the Senators on Thursday. This means that Calvin Pickard could get his first NHL start Saturday night. Jesse Winchester (concussion) is also missing for the Avs.

What Else

The first period continues to hurt the Canadiens, the team has been out-shot in the first period of each of their first five games. Thursday’s home opener was the first game this season the Habs didn’t head to the locker room trailing after 20 minutes.

The Question Mark

He’s got a year of NHL coaching experience under his belt and a Jack Adams Award to show for it, but would you want Patrick Roy to coach the Canadiens?

Tonight’s Show

Join host Steven Hindle along with Kosta Papoulias and Rob Elbaz for the Montreal Hockey Talk Pregame Show as we go live at 6:00 Saturday night to preview the Canadiens and Avalanche.

HabsRangersPlayoffsMatch Up:

The Canadiens and Rangers hook up for Game 4 in the Eastern Conference Finals Sunday night in New York. The Habs are down 2-1 in the series with a chance to go home on even terms after dropping the first two games.

Dustin Tokarski outshone Henrik Lundqvist in Game 3, making 35 saves to help the Canadiens pick up a 3-2 overtime win. Alex Galchenyuk head-butted home the winning goal off a Tomas Plekanec rebound just 1:12 into overtime.

Sunday’s game starts at 8:00 and airs on RDS and CBC.

What to Watch:

Daniel Briere scored his third goal of the postseason Thursday night, bring him up to 7 points in 13 games. Briere was skating on a line with Tomas Vanek and Rene Bourque and both wingers picked up assists on the goal. Andrei Markov found the back of the net for the first time in these playoffs, just his fourth career postseason goal in 68 games.

Laval-native Martin St. Louis picked up his fourth point of the series on Thursday with an assist on Carl Hagelin’s goal. St. Louis has 2 goals and 2 assists against the Habs in these playoffs, but Dustin Tokarski was able to keep him goalless on Thursday despite 5 shots on goal and some prime scoring chances.

What’s at Stake:

The Rangers out-shot and out-worked the Canadiens in Game 3, but the Habs still managed to get their first win of the series to give the team some life. They’ll look to draw even with a win on Sunday and maybe even take a chunk out of the Rangers’ confidence after they went up 2-0 in Montreal.

Who’s Out:

The Habs are still without Carey Price (knee) who is expected to miss the rest of this series. Brandon Prust has been suspended for two games following a late hit on Derek Stepan in Game 3.

Stepan (jaw) is out for the Rangers but Derick Brassard (upper body) could return to the lineup after missing Games 2 and 3. Daniel Carcillo was served a 10-game suspension for abuse of the officials in Game 3.

What Else:

The Habs power play remained ice cold Thursday night, going 0-for-2 on the night and 0-for-9 on the series. Montreal converted 8 of their 25 man advantage opportunities against the Bruins last round over a goal a game. PK Subban and Thomas Vanek have 3 each of Montreal’s 10 power play goals but neither has lit the lamp in this series.

The Question Mark:

Should the Canadiens continue to focus on the physical game with Prust out of the lineup?

HabsBruinsPlayoffsMatch Up:

The Canadiens – Bruins series stays in Montreal for Game 4 Thursday night. The Habs took a 2-1 series lead with a 4-2 win at the Bell Centre on Tuesday. Game 4 is set to start at 7:30 and airs on RDS and CBC.

The Canadiens went up by as many as 3 goals in Game 3, and for the first time this series, they didn’t give up their third period lead to the Bruins, hanging on for a 4-2 win. Dale Weise picked up his second game winning goal in these playoffs while Daniel Briere picked up his third assist on a game winning goal.

What to Watch:

PK Subban has racked up 6 points in 3 games versus the Bruins and 10 points career playoff points against the Bruins in 10 games. Lars Eller’s strong playoffs continued with an assist and an empty net goal in Game 3 after being held pointless the game before for the first time this postseason. Eller is up to 3 goals and 5 assists in 7 games.

Milan Lucic comes into Thursday’s match on a 5-game point streak, he has 3 goals and 3 assists in that span. Patrice Bergeron extended his point streak to 7 games with a goal on Tuesday, his 9 points put him 8th in playoff scoring.

What’s at Stake:

The Canadiens are 3-and-0 in home playoff games so far. They’ll need another win on Bell Centre ice Thursday to hold onto home ice advantage. While a win for the Bruins would tie the series at 2, it would shift the advantage back to them as the series returns to Boston on Saturday.

Who’s Out:

Alex Galchenyuk (knee) is still out for the Canadiens. Brandon Prust missed Game 3 although if he is injured, he’s played through the injury for 6 games already in these playoffs.

The Bruins are still missing Dennis Seidenberg (lower body), Adam McQuaid (ankle) and Chris Kelly (back).

What Else:

Goal celebrations have been a hot storyline in this series. It started in Game 1 with Milan Lucic and Torey Krug celebrating a third period goal by beating their chest and the Bruins logo on it. Dale Weise answered the celebration back on Bell Centre ice after his breakaway goal put the Canadiens ahead 3-0 in Game 3. Meanwhile PK Subban’s celebration for his out-of-the-box breakaway goal has been replayed almost as often as the goal itself.

The Question Mark:

How do expect the Bruins to react in Game 4 and how will that affect the Habs’ game-plan?
