- Utilize their size advantage by bullying the Montreal players and making up mean rumours about them
- Try to get out to a 3-0 series lead; the safest lead in hockey
- Tim Thomas moved way too fast last time. He should wait to see if Carey will ask him to the dance this time
- Time for Zdeno Chara to bring out his secret weapon: smashing people into random pieces of glass that stick out unexpectedly
- Montreal’s small forwards should mix things up by hiding on the ice and crawling between the Bruins legs
- Keep the Montreal fans into the game but not getting beat up so much
- Tomas Plekanec take off that fucking turtleneck
- If racing toward the puck with Zdeno Chara just slowly back up and kindly say “here you you go big fella, you can have it”
Following the morning skate in preparation of tonight’s highly anticipated game against the Montreal Canadiens, Bruins players laughed hysterically when asked repeatedly if they expected retaliation from the Habs following Zdeno Chara’s hit on Max Pacioretty in the last meeting between the two teams. Pacioretty suffered a severe concussion and a broken vertebrae when he was checked by Chara into the glass stanchion that seperates the benches, leaving many to wonder if the Habs will seek revenge in the return match tonight in Boston; something Bruins players simply could not hold back their laughter at the thought of. “Are you serious? No, like really, you must be joking, right?” an utterly confused Milan Lucic replied when asked how he thought the Habs might retaliate. “What are they gonna do, and more importantly, who is gonna do it? Gionta? Gomez? Plekanec? If I see one of those trolls even come near me I will pick them up and throw each of them right out of the arena. And thats if I’m in a good mood.” Continue reading
Carey Price telling media about his "flu-like" symptoms
According to a report from the real journalists at tsn.ca, Montreal Canadiens’ goaltender Carey Price may miss the season opener against rival Toronto Maple Leafs with an illness. The report cites flu-like symptoms, which defenceman Andrei Markov is also feeling the effects of. However, we here at DKM are in pretty tight with Carey, and we got the real scoop on what’s happening in Hab-land. Follow the jump for the REAL inside story about Carey Price’s illness.
The Montreal Canadiens celebrate their Game 7 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins
The Montreal Canadiens continued their playoff run with yet another upset victory, this time knocking off the defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins in seven games. This has been the cause of much excitement and celebration, both for the players on the team and the fans in Montreal. However, DKM has learned that the magical playoff run has upset at least one player, backup goaltender Carey Price.
J.S. Giguere, in happier times
In a recent TSN report, Anaheim Ducks goalie J.S. Giguere stated he was tired and frustrated by his back-up situation to Jonas Hiller. Saying he’d “rather retire” than be a backup, Giguere’s comments are likely to stir up the trade-talk front and give Darren Dreger more opportunities to check his Blackberry on-air. DKM was lucky to sit down with Giguere to get some more insight into the situation in Anaheim, and the prospect of him joining his hometown team of Montreal.
As the season draws to yet another exciting photo finish, I decided to make a list of “and what did I learn” moments from this past season:
1. Malkin is the Russian Jason Spezza.
Malkin may lead the NHL in points and assists, but I would not feature this allergic-to-his-own-blueline of a player. Over the past few seasons I still held a dark faith that he would improve his passing game and own zone play, but now I am forever jaded. For every spectacular play, he gives up the puck three or four times trying to enter the opposing zone all by himself on the powerplay. I mean, I like the penguins, but how many times must he give up the puck trying to be a cute dangler and then skate back to the bench claiming “I Didn’t Do It!”
2. The Ligue nationale de hockey should go back to using Wooden Sticks.
The Canadiens are 15-4-16 since Jan. 4th. The Lightning are 13-6-15. I mean, c'mon, the Tampa Bay "Saw V" Lightning.
Can the Montreal Canadiens make the Playoffs? Six weeks ago it seemed like a sure thing.
Well, since the Canadiens currently hold the 8th and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, this question can be rephrased as: Can any of the non-playoff teams knock the Canadiens out of the playoff picture?
