Defenceman
Andrei Markov may be out of the lineup for an indefinite period but the
Canadiens didn’t miss a beat Tuesday night as they defeated the
Philadelphia Flyers 3-0 behind a superb goaltending performance from
Carey Price.

Price made 41 saves for his third shutout of the
season as outduelled the Flyers’ rookie goaltending sensation Sergei
Bobrovsky to boost his record to 11-5-1. The Flyers arrived in Montreal
as the second-highest scoring team in the National Hockey League but
failed to score despite outshooting the Canadiens 41-28..

Special
teams played a key role as the Canadiens extended their current winning
streak to four games. The Canadiens scored during a five-on-three
advantage in the first period and denied the Flyers when they had a
similar advantage in the second period.

Michael Cammalleri, who
was playing the point on the power play in Markov’s absence, opened the
scoring when he jumped into the high slot and took a pass Brian Gionta
at 9:36 of the first period.

Gionta completed a three-point night
when he scored a power-play goal at 6:24 of the third period. His pass
from behind the net went in off the skate of Philadelphia defenceman
Kimmo Timomen. Kimmo

The Canadiens were 1-for-7 on the night and
have gone 8-for-22 over the past four games. The Flyers went 0-for-5
against a Montreal penalty-killing unit that ranks No. 2 in the NHL.

Tomas
Plekanec gave the Canadiens a 2-0 lead when he scored from the faceoff
circle to the left of Bobrovsky at 13:48 of the second period. Plekanec
pulled up in front of Timonen and appeared to be looking to pass the
puck and he caught Bobrovsky by surprise with his shot.

Before
the game, the Canadiens announced that Markov suffered an injury to his
right knee Saturday when he had a knee-to-knee collision with Carolina’s
Eric Staal. A team spokesman described it as a “long-term” injury. A
more precise prognosis should be available on the weekend after Markov
confers with Dr. Anthony Miniaci at the Cleveland Clinic.

Miniaci,
an Ontario native and a longtime Canadiens fan, operated on Markov this
year after the defenceman suffered torn ligaments in the right knee in
the second-round playoff series against Pittsburgh.

Alexandre
Picard replaced Markov and showed no rust after seven games as a healthy
scratch. He was plus-1 for the night and is plus-8 for the season.

The
Canadiens played most of the third period without Jeff Halpern, who was
drilled into the boards by Darroll Powe. There was no penalty on the
play but Maxim Lapierre tried to exact retribution when he challenged
Darroll Powe to a fight. Both players received five-minute fighting
majors even though Powe was the only one to land a punch.

The
Canadiens continue their current home stand Thursday, when they face
Nashville. The struggling Toronto Maple Leafs are at the Bell Centre on
Saturday.

    Wooooooooo..Ive got to see the last 3 games live and they were all awesome. So bummed out to be going home.

  4. JIMVINNY says:

    GOODBYE, Xtrahabsfan.  You said you’d leave if Price won a majority of his first 20 games, and he has.  In convincing fashion.  Now LEAVE!!!!

  5. MTLForever says:

    Bahaha, what gave leighton shut outs in the playoffs was philly’s Dmen.

  6. aemarchand11 says:

    Great game tonight!

    I hope Halpern isnt out long term, although he should only play when concussion symptoms are gone.

    We play in Philadelphia on Monday, expect a very different game with the Flyers last change. 

    Go Habs Go!

    No such thing as a jinx.

  8. Caballero says:

    What a bunch of bums! It’s been said before it will be said again, the Flyers are a bunch of losers. They are by far the most despicable team in the NHL. I hope we give them more of the same next week.

  9. slapshot777 says:

    Leave it to TSN to put up on the screen Carey Price’s 8th career shutout and his 3rd of the season with a little over 3 minutes to play. I guess they tried as well to jinx Price.

     

    To you from failing hands we throw the torch, be yours to hold it high.

  10. observer says:

    true but if leighton had played it would have gone to overtime.

  11. MTLForever says:

    ya was very cheap of odonnell

  12. Ton says:

    i can’t believe these flyers; did you see bobby clark slash pk and than moose dupont grab his face from behind. i cannot believe schultz wouldn’t go with moen. van impe, saleski, all of them just too much. great win tonight by the habs. 

  13. slapshot777 says:

    I was thinking the same thing, now only if Gill would get rid of the helmet and let his hair grow out and Bingo, instant twin Big Bird.

  14. MTLForever says:

    setting up for when we play them next week

  15. observer says:

    wearing old broad street bully uniforms and acting like them even appeared to act as racist thugs. disgusting performance how 3 gtuys went after subban and gutless odonnell from way behind and out of sight.

  16. RC-51 says:

    Price is on FIRE!!! Team is playing awesome hockey! Lets keep it up. 

    Does anyone else think that Gill looks a little like #19 with his stach?

  17. Seps says:

    I think that was the best game of the season so far! Great game to watch!

     

    In Price we trust

  18. samTHEman says:
    Gotta give credit where credit is due. The flyers made the game longer for me to enjoy. Take a look LOL!!!!

    Habs have made some very good to great teams look bad this month. So much for us ‘beating up on the basement dwellers’, team is here to stay. Welcome to the Carey Price show, cost of admittance? Your team’s pride and dignity.

     

    - I shall always remember Captain Koivu. Habs and Hockey.

  20. slapshot777 says:

    Great game by the Habs. I thought it was pretty low by Laviolette to be putting Shelly out with only a couple of minutes to play. I mean what was his TOI tonight 10 seconds. The Flyers tried to bully the Habs, but give credit to the Habs they stood up to the Flyers and pushed back.

     

    To you from failing hands we throw the torch, be yours to hold it high.

  21. Mikey_39 says:

    Next game against the Flyers, I want to see Subban drill Richards into the boards…hard.  I missed the third period but I heard on the radio Richards calling out PK saying he’s cocky and needs to learn to respect him.  I don’t know what happened, but in what sick twisted world should PK respect that dirty scumbag.

  22. OverseasFan says:

    I just went to NHL.com and their top headline and photo is of the Leafs, too.

    As I’ve said before, I don’t care if the whole world under-estimates us if we keep winning games like this. It’s not so bad to be the stealth victor.

    Go Habs Go!

  23. Seps says:

    And P.K.!

  26. SeriousFan09 says:

    For those who missed it:

    The Hamilton Bulldogs defeated the Toronto Marlies 2-1 in the shootout, Ryan White scored on the PP in regulation with assists from Palushaj and Avtsin, than Avtsin and Desharnais tallied in the shootout to bring home the win. Avtsin is 2-for-2 on shootout attempts this season and has 1G, 3A in 7 games so far. Palushaj has points in 9 of 10 games with Hamilton this season.

    Oh and BTW, anybody else looooooove Plekky’s ‘salute’ to Daniel Briere by mocking his goal-scoring celebration?

    —Hope Springs Eternal—

  28. Mattyleg says:

    Yeah, that was pretty sweet this morning. Got a remarkable pre-coffee smile out of me.

    Onright and O’Toole (?) are a great pair. Makes the others look like dorks.

    —Hope Springs Eternal—

  29. Mattyleg says:

    Yep, I bet that Jaro had Price squeezing his stick a little tighter, and now that Auldie’s there, it’s not so much pressure on him. He knows that he can have a bad night and he won’t be riding the pine for two weeks. Sounds silly, but that kind of thing can really make you play better.

    I don’t think that Subban’s arrival has affected Price, apart form maybe causing him to realize that he’s a bit older now. Being around younger people makes you feel and act older, I’ve found. In professional situations, that is.

    —Hope Springs Eternal—

  30. Bugs says:

    First off, just gonna come right out and say that tonight was our most important win of the season so far and quite possibly our best game.

    To business: don’t know if any’o'yehs noticed but the Kid was pretty good again. In fact, he’s been pretty good since the start of the season, imo.

    Kinda too bad Soobie stole all that thunder after Andrei got shoved into the boards cuz Andrei’s retaliatory cross-check in buddy’s back was a thing’o'beauty. Yes, it was wrong; yes, it was cheap; yes, it was dishinorable and no, we shouldn’t show that to the kids, but it was friggin beautiful anyway. Attaboy, Andrei! Don’t take no spit from nobody.

    Speaking of Soobie though, likin’m more and more if that’s possible; everything’s a flippin soap-opera with this guy.

    Final shout-out to the boys at TSN who made me giggle all day long today: “You’re off the case, Bobrovsky! Hand in your badge!”

  31. HabsTrueBlue says:

    And of course if they hadn’t done that and had shown something from the Leaf game all the other yahoos like you on this site would be whining about TSN not showing enough of the Habs.  

  32. HabsTrueBlue says:

    Actually the Leafs are irrelevant but Toronto is relevant. The Habs are relevant but Montreal is irrelevant.

  33. samTHEman says:

    it is on the front page….first thing you see.

  34. HabsTrueBlue says:

    That’s interesting because front and centre on their home page right under the TSN logo what I see is Carey Price, Hammer, and some dorky Flyer.

  35. Seps says:

    I believe Im an expert so Ill respond ;)

    I think Subban has had a great influence on Price and probably has helped Carey with his attitude as well.  Don’t forget they played together in the world juniors and won gold.  They were buds on that team too, so now Price has a buddy on Montreal who has played with him when he was playing his best and winning and has high expectations of him whereas all the guys on Montreal didn’t know his potential before.

    Auld’s only influence would be creating comforting thoughts for Price, because Price knows Auld is a backup goalie so he knows he’s now the official #1. 

  36. NightRyder says:

    Boone, Stubbs, other experts… how much, if any, of an influence has
    the arrival of Subban – another future superstar of approximately the
    same vintage – had on Price?

    Someone else who has huge expectations, but keeps it loose and appears to have a nice rapport with Price.

    Also,
    some of us were bleating for a veteran backup/mentor/non-threatening
    old guy for Price (see: Olie Kolzig etc.) for some time now. How much of
    an impact, if any, has the non-threatening big, bald Auld had on Price
    as well.

    Looking forward to your answers…

  37. savethepuck says:

    We will not see Auld until at least the b2b the 26th and 27th v Atl and Buff

  38. 23 HABS 23 says:

    Are you Kidding me?  What an amazing game!  Penalty kill was HUGE tonight! A win against the Flyers is big … but to keep them scorless?  UNBELIEVABLE!  Great Team victory!  And not to go without mention … Great Shut out by Carey Price!  He has 3 Shut Outs now … tied with a former HAB if I am not mistaken!  But Price has more wins and less games being pulled!  :)

    Keep it up boys a la bleu, blanc, et rouge!

    GO HABS GO! (Let’s go get that elusive 25th Stanley Cup!)

  39. andrewberkshire says:

    Oh I completely agree. I couldn’t be happier tonight.

  40. andrewberkshire says:

    Sounds like a hot streak!

  41. punkster says:

    It’s like watching a bunch of poor sport Atom C players when they’re down 4-0 in the thrid and no hope of winning. Tempers, cheap shots, whining. Bunch of children.

  42. skoalbandit says:

    Picard played a solid 13 min. Finished +1, with a steady return.

  43. Kooch7800 says:

    Great game by the habs and by Carey. I really hope Halpern is ok.  He has been great for us

  44. SmartDog says:

    In the Hamrlik vs. Spacek debate, one thing I like about Hamrlik is he looks tought and seems to be very strong.  He just looks mean.  And he USED to hold people off with one arm while he fished it out with another…. don’t see him do that much anymore but he still seems really strong.

  45. JohnBellyful says:

    Well, he looked good … until Powe started swinging. At least, he’s got the stance down pat so the boxing lessons did pay off.

  46. JohnBellyful says:

    Great win for the Habs. Fantastic goaltending, a hot line firing on all cylinders, and superior penalty killing. Don’t know  if the Canadiens can rely that winning formula for an entire season but they are making the most of it while they can. It would be nice if a few other guys could start finding the net. And where was the Eller line for the second half of the game. Penalties throw their TOI out of whack?

    And PK, like I said earlier today, your talent already makes you a lightning rod, don’t make it worse for yourself by inviting cheapshots. Maintain your cool.

    Starting Auld against Nashville would seem to be the logical choice, given that team’s recent woes. Save Price for the Leafs.

  47. SmartDog says:

    You’d think the Flyers would get tired of half their games turning into bullshit contests.  I mean really, GROW UP GUYS!!!  Play some f-n hockey ya bunch of wankers.

    Don’t bother picking up a G&M tomorrow either, then.

     

    Gotta love a newspaper that sells itself as a “national” (small ‘n’) paper…which has more Lafs coverage than The Gazette does of our Habs… okay, that may be an exaggeration, but you get my point.

  51. HabsPEI31 says:

    Laps needs more lessons. It was a start, though. I know it’s his role, to get under the opposition’s skin and draw them in as much as possible towards penalties, but he’ll need to be more effective if he’s going to properly defend himself and back up his tongue when necessary with his fists.

    he took boxing over the summer, said he’d drop the gloves this year. he did the right thing, powe is a fighter though. i am just proud of lappy for standing up for gorges and halpern

  54. slapshot777 says:

    Price is da man. I guess PG made the right choice after all. This is the true Carey Price. You can see his confidence in the way he walks and the way he talks.

    41 save shutout over the hottest team in the NHL and the Leafs get the front page of TSN, why am I not surprised?

  56. HabsPEI31 says:

    Instead, it was NHL-level kids kicking sand in the opposing players’ faces – to no effect. Stalwart game. Didn’t fall to their level.

  65. MontrealAtheist says:

    What’s the point of praying to some imaginary man with a beard in the sky? I sympathize with Markov’s situation, but at the same time I also hope we can trade him as soon as possible … This guy gets knocked out far too easily and he’s of no use to us when he’s injured (which has been happening with frightening frequency).

  66. samTHEman says:

    lol. print it out and keep it for when you get his autograph. he will laff it off

  67. LA Loyalist says:

    I’m framing this picture of Gomez actually in the Philly crease. It’s the first time he’s impressed me in 2 years.

    Hopefully Price will sieze the opportunity to boost team morale tonight and shut the door as much as possible.

    Our prayers are with Markov. I guess we’ll discuss the implications tomorrow. I will say Hammer filled in great last year to the detriment perhaps of his stamina later on. Hope he can do it again.

     

    Go Habs!

  68. WindsorHab-10 says:

    How about calling up Ian Schultz before our rematch Monday with those thugs?

  69. Dintrox says:

    If the NHL is indeed serious about head hunting then Powe better be suspended. Nasty elbow to the head to Gorges and then hits Halpern from behind. No call by the zebras on the Halpern hit.

    no reason to change the lineup or game plan if it worked to perfection.

    Could we have imagined the what if…if Price goaled for us last spring against the Flyers, he has won the series so far….damn I wonder   

    GO HABS GO —————>JAROSLAV WHO? WHO WAS # 41  I KNOW #31

  74. shiram says:

    Well last night was the Flyers, one of the most physical hockey team out there, but thats not reason to change such a winning lineup.

    Lapierre stepped in there for our guys, he tried, but couldnt land a punch, but it’s his job to do, to make sure other teams respect our players.

    That being said, i really came to despise the Flyers last night, they made themselves looked like a bunch of frustrated and angry kids.


    Poutine, the perfect trio, on any line.

  75. adamkennelly says:

    muscle – Habs need some muscle – just lost our best player – guys getting roughed up – its an overall mentality opponents have with this team – I can’t stand it and it’ll cost us…preferably some guys who can play too but I’ll take whatever at this point – we have the softest line up in the entire league.

  76. rocketsglare says:

    Yet, as of today, this team is in 1st place in the Northeast Division with 25 pts. and 3rd overall in the

    Eastern Conference. Not bad for a team with “the softest line up in the entire league.”

     

    Go Habs Go!

  79. Habs Fan in LeafLand says:

    Great game by the entire team, not just Price. “It’s not just me” as we hope to keep hearing from him over and over and over. Btw, is anyone okay with him being left off of the All-Star ballot??? Remember the last time…didn’t work out that great. Let him stay home and watch Ovechkin on tv.

    HABS are showing they are one of the league’s top teams, especially when Price is playing this way. The only caveat, is that against the Bruins and last night’s game against the Flyers, both teams were coming off games the night before. So let’s see what the Habs do when those teams are fresh.

    Lapierre, for all his good intentions, isn’t much of a fighter. I like the idea of bringing up Ian Schultz for the next tilt against the broad street bullies…why is it that anyone names Schultz is automatically a fighter? :)

    Man poor Markov. He’s done like dinner for the year in my opinion…we’ll be lucky to get him in before the playoffs. The only bright side is the team is at least used to playing without him.

    2-0 after 40min. Just another 20 mins until this game is in the books, the team is playing alright but they can be better- the Dman is doing pretty good right now and if they keep on playing as a team, we can win this game.

    another shutout for Price?? <3 I hope soo… he deserves another one ;)

    Lost a lot of respect for Mike Richards and his BS he said about PK, dude, stop whining and keep that crap in the room!

    Don’t you just love how P.K. is getting under their skin. Crosby and now Richards. I just love it.

     

    Go Habs Go!

    Takes from tonight’s game: 1) Price is a beast, 2) great line play by Cammalleri, Gionta, and Plekanec,

    3) the PK continues to impress, 4) the D was again solid, 5) players stood up for each other, and 6) the

    Flyers are f…in thugs.

    How a thug like Darroll Powe who on 2 occasions uses his elbow with the clear intent to injure is not ej-

    ected from the game is beyond me. The Flyers were clearly sending a message for Monday’s game and

    were just frustrated by the speed and grit of this team. Monday’s game I believe will be closely officiat-

    ed and hopefully under better control. The Habs should take notes that speed and discipline along with

    a hot netminder won tonight and can again in 7 days.

     

    Go Habs Go!

    Must be that special Phiily rule. The zebras done everything they could tonight to the Habs but couldn’t break their team spirit. The League should looking at that hit o both Halpren and Gorges. Both are questionable hits.

     

     

    To you from failing hands we throw the torch, be yours to hold it high.

    Why was there no penalty on the Halpern hit?  It’s okay to crunch someone’s head against the boards from behind?  Or is this a special Phily rule?

    Heard on The Verus Broadcast after The Halpern Hit (Mike at ice level) – A Flyer said “Good Sell Job”………

    thankssss timmmmmonen!! GIONTAAAAA

  96. rocketsglare says:

    Why change your lineup after winning 3-0. The lineup and game plan should remain unchanged for

    Monday’s game. It proved to be a winner.

     

    Go Habs Go!

    All Hail PK!!!  Excellent game last night.  PK deserves the limelight he played a gritty game…well done.  Hats of to Lappy as well trying to take down that garbage Powe…what a dope eh?  Gonna be in Philly wearing the tricolors…should be interesting to say the least…go habs go!

    In the summer, I said that Pricey would “shut up the simpletons” this year. I think he’s doing a pretty good job of that so far (jack todd isn’t ready to quiet down yet).
    I’ve never seen a more skilled goalie. Combined with his current confidence, it’s really exciting.
    There isn’t a goalie in the world i would trade him for.
    Enjoy it.
