Stats, highlights, and updates on the Montreal Canadiens prospects from the past week. Each week we take an in-depth look at young members of the organization while providing an overview of Habs prospects playing at the junior (OHL, QMJHL, WHL) and collegiate level (USHL, NCAA). Josh Brook’s game on Saturday ended abruptly. He was ejected for a crosscheck that sent Ethan McIndoe of the Spokane Chief to the boards, with his shoulder and head likely making the first contact. It was a heated contest with some physical exchanges between the two teams before this event, but such a shove on a vulnerable opponent is uncharacteristic of the defenceman’s play. Brook can show his strength and doesn’t hesitat

Domi and Reilly picked up their first Habs goals, and if you look up the definition of Gally goal, you will find a gif of this one. With Carey Price back in the net, and Karl Alzner back on the blue line, the Montreal Canadiens faced the St. Louis Blues on Wednesday night. The team honoured Tomas Plekanec in a touching tribute, complete with turtlenecks, and then the game began. And it certainly began with a bang. The Blues had the first pressure in the offen

MONTREAL — Karl Alzner had played through it all. Broken limbs, illness, confidence peaks and valleys, and all the other bumps and bruises that come with starting 622 consecutive games in the world’s most challenging hockey league. But nothing was harder for him to deal with than arriving at the rink before his Montreal Canadiens played their first game this season and finding out that he was being made a healthy scratch for the first time since establishing himself as a regular in the NHL at age 22. We’re talking about a player who had averaged over 20 minutes a game through his first nine seasons with the Washington Capitals. A player who had lined up

Brendan Gallagher scored with just 10 seconds left in the third period to give his team a hard-fought 3-2 win over the St. Louis Blues at the Bell Centre, and although it wasn’t the greatest game ever played by Les Canadiens, it was still a win, their third in a row, and it makes my heart soar like an eight mile high Lear jet on this, Canada’s first day as a legal pot nation.

MONTREAL — Brendan Gallagher scored with 11 seconds left in regulation as the Montreal Canadiens defeated the St. Louis Blues 3-2 on Wednesday to extend their winning streak to three games. Max Domi and Mike Reilly each scored their first goal of the season for Montreal (4-1-1). Back between the pipes after missing two games with the flu, Carey Price made 23 saves for his second victory of the season. Vince Dunn and Brayden Schenn scored for the Blues (1-3-2) while Jake Allen stopped 20-of-23 shots in defeat. Gallagher scored the winner when he tipped a loose puck past Allen in the dying moments of the game after jumping on a bad

Montreal entered Wednesday’s game with a chance to win three in a row for the first time this year, but first, it was necessary to celebrate Tomas Plekanec’s 1000th career game one last time. The Canadiens do ceremonies better than anyone in the league, and on Wednesday night, they turned the charm up to 10 to celebrate Plekanec in a more formal way. When an NHLer plays his 1000th career game, they receive a commemorative crystal from the league and a silver stick from his team. After being congratulated from former teammates like Sheldon Souray and Saku Koivu, it was only fitting that Marc Bergevin and Geoff Molson took the ice donning Plekanec’s trademark turtleneck. As a fan, I couldn’t help but notice how loose it was. If Bergevin and Molson are nervous about the direction of the team, it certainly didn’t show. When Molson promised a new and improved game day presentation, we didn’t think he was going to break out the big guns this early on! Turtleneck

Canadiens score very early and very, very late to edge the Blues

The Canadiens let the Blues hang around too long, but Brendan Gallagher scored with 9.7 seconds left in the game as Montreal salvaged a 3-2 win over St. Louis Wednesday night at the Bell Centre The Canadiens were the dominant team for the first 28 minutes, but they fell into an old, bad habit after taking a 2-1 lead at 7:42 of the second period. The Canadiens have thrived this season by using their speed to push the attack. But after taking the lead, they seemed more interested in falling back into a defensive shell. The result was that St. Louis turned the tables with an aggressive forecheck of their own and outshot Montreal 22-13 over the final two periods. The Blues pulled even when Brayden Schenn scored a power-play goal at 16:31. The Blues had three consecutive power plays in the third period and it seemed inevitable they would click on one of them. The  Montreal penalty-killing unit is still a work in progress. St. Louis managed five shots on five power
