Montreal - Dec. 8, 2014: For a second day in a row, thousands of Habs fans braved the cold to pay tribute to the man who spent his life warming hearts around the hockey world. It was the final day of Jean Béliveau’s public viewing ahead of Wednesday’s planned state funeral, and fans from across Canada once again poured into the Bell Centre beginning at 10:00 a.m. - although a line formed outside the main entrance hours before the doors officially opened - to celebrate the life of the Canadiens legend.

Montreal - Nov. 19, 2014: I first talked to Pat Burns - alone - on August 1988, the day of the Gretzky trade. Burns hadn't coached an NHL game yet - he had been hired by the Habs just two months earlier - but had worked for Gretzky while coaching Hull in QMJHL. It was the middle of the summer, a lot of people were away from their desks (including, famously, Red Fisher) and I couldn't get Gretzky or the man who traded him - Peter Pocklington. Nor the man who was beginning to shake up the NHL - Bruce McNall. So I called Pat. FULL STORY

Montreal - Nov. 5, 2014: Usually we show a lot of character. We didn't show it tonight. - Michel Therrien. Happy Birthday coach. Habs started very well. Carried the play. Corey Crawford made some big saves. But the common theme was Montreal's inability to finish. P.A. Parenteau had an open net but couldn't bury the puck. He didn't get all of it, allowing Crawford to move over and make a strong pad save FULL STORY

Montreal - Nov. 3, 2014: First game back home following a week long road trip always seems to be a tough assignment. But it's not like the Flames arrived via a 45 minute flight from NYC. And Calgary was without several regulars including Matt Stajan, Mason Raymond, Joe Colborne and Mikail Backlund. Maybe Subban and the Habs forgot to turn their clocks back an hour FULL STORY

Montreal - Oct. 28, 2014: Thud. The Montreal Canadiens like a team that spent the flight to Edmonton reading about how great they are. While filling up on Grade AAA Alberta beef. Maybe they'll be hungry again in Calgary. The Edmonton Oilers skated to a 3-0 victory. FULL STORY

Don't look now but Dallas Eakins' side looks to have righted the ship...at least for the time being. FULL STORY

Montreal - Oct. 17, 2014: The Boston Bruins knew it would be a difficult chore to beat the Montreal Canadiens at the Bell Centre, especially after arriving in Montreal between 3 and 4 AM (or as Tyler Seguin used to call it - Happy Hour). They also knew they'd likely have to get a strong performance from Tuukka Rask to stay in the game. FULL STORY
