The team came out with a strong push early in the game, looking like they might pull themselves out of a disastrous tailspin with a new coach at the helm. What happened instead was a defensive and goaltending collapse, leading to a lopsided loss in a game that Montreal was leading 3-1 at one point. With a full day of special teams-focused practice under their belt, Ducharme and the Canadiens rolled back into Winnipeg for a rematch with the Jets. Jake Allen was handed the starter’s net

If you want to be half-glass full about it, after five straight losses — and eight in the last 10 games — you could say the building blocks were established in this dominant game the Montreal Canadiens played in Winnipeg on Saturday night. But the Canadiens lost once again, this time 2-1 in overtime to the Winnipeg Jets, and there’s no telling how they’ll react come Tuesday at the Bell Centre against an Ottawa Senators team that’s beaten them in three of four games this season. Interim head coach Dominique Ducharme said he told his players they deserved better, that he was pleased with what he saw in their implementation of the strategies he’s adva

This column is the last one I’m writing during Black History Month. I meant to do more during February, but then the Canadiens collapsed and it slipped my mind. Apologies! As I said in the first column in February, Black history is celebrated when a Black future is supported. Here are some causes worthy of your support: Black Girl Hockey Club is a fantastic group creating a space for Black girls to thrive in hockey. They do this by creating scholarships for aspiring Black hockey players and by inspiring fans to stand up against the systemic racism in hockey. The Foundation for Black Women’s Wellness looks to tear down the barriers that keep Black women from getting adequate medical care. FFBWW does this through financial support and advocacy for policy reform. The Marsha P. Johnson Institute looks to protect the lives and rights of Bl

WINNIPEG — Paul Stastny’s overtime goal clinched Winnipeg’s 2-1 victory over the Montreal Canadiens, extending the Jets’ winning streak to four games. Nikolaj Ehlers also scored for Winnipeg (13-6-1). The Jets were victorious despite being outshot 41-21. Connor Hellebuyck made 40 saves in the winning effort at Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg. Nick Suzuki scored for Montreal (9-6-5) while goaltender Jake Allen made 19 saves in the loss. Montreal’s winless streak is now at five games. The streak includes back-to-back losses to the Jets. Montreal held a 3-1 lead on Winnipeg Thursday night before the Jets scored five unanswered goals en route to a 6-3 win. Saturday night’s affair saw both teams fail to score in the opening period. Montreal, however, doubled Winnipeg’s s
