  • The Big Four?

    22 Nov 2014 | 7:30 pm
    BOSTON – Andrei Markov joined an exclusive club on Saturday night. Scoring the 100th goal of his NHL career – a power play marker in the first period against the Bruins – Markov further cemented his status as one of the best blue-liners to ever don the CH, becoming just the fourth defenseman in Canadiens history to join the Century Club for goals. Now tied with Serge Savard in career goals scored – despite playing 130 fewer games than the Hall-of-Famer, Markov trails only the other two-thirds of the Big Three, Guy Lapointe (166) and Larry Robinson (197) in that category in his career.

    BOSTON – There’s no better way to learn about life as a Hab than by starting your Canadiens career with a game against the Bruins. Just a few hours after arriving at the Canadiens’ hotel in Boston, Bryan Allen hopped on the ice in a Habs jersey for the first time on Saturday morning for the pre-game skate. While he won’t have much time to put faces to names before puck drop at TD Garden, the veteran blue-liner is already starting to feel at ease in his new hockey home, thanks in part to the friends he has manning the team’s Welcome Wagon. “When I first came into the hotel, [Marc]…

Before this year, I would take two cameras to a game, a Panasonic point-and-shoot like the Lumix ZS20, and a bridge camera (between a point-and-shoot and a DSLR), such as the Panasonic DMC-FZ28.  I like the Panasonic because their photos looked great for the camera.  They weren’t high-end cameras, but they worked well enough.

    Amateur scouting is not an exact science. Professionals with a keen eye for the game of hockey spend hundreds of hours each year watching games, reviewing video, and traveling around the world trying to find the best possible prospect for their respective teams. In many cases all that time and effort is for naught, as players who were standouts at the junior level just don't have what it takes to make the transition to the NHL level. However, when it comes to the #1 overall pick - those special players that stand head and shoulders above their peers - it is very rare that the recommendations…

Greats like Gilbert Perreault, Mario Lemieux and Dale Hawerchuk all made big impacts in their first year in the league, but the average rookie breaking in was lucky just to crack the lineup, let alone dominate the game. Today, with the high level of coaching and the intense fitness training young athletes enjoy they are entering the league more prepared than ever to compete against veteran talent, and now it is the…

What a game! The Nashville Predators looked to bounce back from Thursday's 3-2 loss in Ottawa with a Saturday night tilt against the Florida Panthers.
