It took five rounds of shootout but Team A edged Team C 3-2 to finish with a perfect 2-0 record in the Canadiens intra-sqauad scrimmage series at Complexe Sportif Bell in Brossard.

Andreas Engqvist and Michael Cammalleri beat Robert Mayer in the shootout while Tomas Plekanec was the only player to beat Peter Delmas.

The Reds had taken a 2-0 lead in the first of the two 25-minute running-time halves as David Desharnais and Tom Pyatt beat Curtis Sanford. But Plekanec cut the lead in half early in the second half and Ryan O’Byrne tied the game with 35.9 seconds remaining. O’Byrne beat Delmas seconds after he rang a shot off a post.

Carey Price stopped all six shots he faced for Team A whle Delmas stopped 8 of 10. Sanford stopped 8 of 10 for Team C while Mayer stopped all seven shots he faced in regulation with big glove saves on Maxim Lapierre and Cammalleri.

The final scrimmage of the camp will be held Monday at 11 a.m., Team B vs. C, with practices slated from 10 am to 1 pm.

    I find water polo is very much like quidditch without a snitch, bludger and beaters.

    Rask won’ t win the Vezina Trophy.

    It would be great, since it would be a slap in the face to Toronto, but I don’t think he will repeat from his last year’s success. I am expecting around .915 to .920 save percentage from him, which is pretty good for a 23 year old goaltender. I am expecting Miller to repeat and win the Vezina. Vokoun has a decent chance as well.

    Me and my imaginary friend, both of us chillin in my mother’s basement, soutenons ça. I said he was pullin a Favre few days back; can’t rightly go back on it now.

    Which means that, scientifically speaking, François Gagnon is right. (not that I don’t think he’s a dink too, I do, but for different reasons: he translated that Rivet “laughed in the French media’s face when asked if he missed them”, when it actuality, he “smiled and said ‘no comment'” according to the SJ Mercury Chronicle (or whatever); blatant and premeditative MIS-translation to stir up the sh*te; lost my respect then)

    But as for the Hamr hammin it up? Why do I soutiens ça, you ask?

    Meh, passes the time.

    The Score Sports Network did a pre-season pick of the major individual trophy winners – Vezina : Turka Rask, Art Ross : Nicholas Backstrom, Norris : Drew Doughty, Hart & Maurice Richard : Alexander Oveckin, Calder : PK Subban…….

    Don’t look for too many Canadiens pieces by Jean-François Bégin in the days to come: he’s now sports editor of La Presse.

    we need eller down the middle at centre for size, we don’t need size on the wings

    I’ll pray!!

    He’s no different than 99.9% of sports writers i’ve seen, they use 90% speculation and 10% common sense… they just want people to read :)

    Any way you look at it this is a big transition period for both the Habs and the Bulldogs. Major changes are in store for both teams.

    Price takes over as the bona fide #1 goalie. PK takes his spot on the blueline and Eller is the best forward prospect we’ve had in a long time.

    Down in Hamilton three new players will start taking regular shifts. Strangely enough all are over 6 feet tall and 200 pounds.

    Hamilton wont look so much like a smurf factory anymore.

    Endqvist, Avtsin, and Schultz will all bring badly needed size to the farm system. Team them up with MaxPac and Conboy and the Dogs will be a much bigger club.

    Sure Desharnais will still be around but his time as a prospect is coming to an end as he takes up career minor leaguer status. He’ll get ice time but the focus will be on other player’s development. Fellow smurf Trotter is making his fortune in the KHL. Sure Dumont and Fortier will still be around as will Weber but the new blood and MaxPac will be the focal points for the team.

  15. HabFanSince72 says:

    In Francois Gagnon’s column he remarks that Hamrlik is not playing because of a knee injury. Then he adds:

    “D’autres soutiennent qu’il se ménage en vue de sa dernière saison sous contrat avec le Canadien…”

    This guy is rapidly tuning into my least favourite sports writer. La Presse has some good young writers like Mathias Brunet, or Jean Francois Begin, but Gagnon is a hack.

    The statement about Hamrlik, unattributed, is malicious  gossip bordering on unethical journalism.
