Bryan Allen has been traded to Montreal in exchange for Rene Bourque.

In six games with the Anaheim Ducks this season, Allen has one assist, 11 blocks and 10 hits. He missed the first 14 games of the year because of a lower-body injury.
Nov 20 - 5:36 PM

Michael Bournival (shoulder) has resumed skating.

He took to the ice on his own Wednesday, but he isn't expected to be available to play for another week or two.
Nov 19 - 3:57 PM

P.K. Subban was unable to get onto the scoresheet in Tuesday's 4-0 loss to Pittsburgh.

Subban contributed goals in back-to-back games before this contest, bringing his season total to five, but he was saddled with a minus-1 rating to go along with two shots on goal in the losing effort.
Nov 19 - 12:43 AM

Carey Price suffered through a difficult evening against the Penguins Tuesday, as he allowed four goals on 22 shots in a 4-0 loss.

Price entered the game on a roll, having won four straight decisions prior to dropping this one, but he dropped the ball in this one. Despite the loss, his season has to be considered a success to-date since he owns an 11-4-1 record, a 2.58 GAA and a .914 save percentage.
Nov 19 - 12:41 AM

Mike Weaver is dealing with an upper-body injury.

Weaver was a late scratch from Tuesday's game as a result. He has three assists in 18 contests in 2014-15.

Carey Price will be in net as Montreal takes on Pittsburgh at home on Tuesday night.

Price will test his .919 save percentage and 2.49 GAA against a Penguins club who've won eight of their last nine while compiling 36 goals in that time. For what it's worth, Price has allowed 37 goals in his 15 starts.

Carey Price has received the NHL's second star of the week.

Price had a 1.33 GAA and .950 save percentage in three straight victories. The Canadiens have been fantastic this season and while he isn't the primary reason for their early success, Price has been good so far and he'll likely get better as the 2014-15 campaign progresses.
Nov 17 - 12:33 PM

Brendan Gallagher scored a goal and added an assist in Sunday's 4-1 victory against Detroit.

Gallagher combined with Tomas Plekanec on both of his points. Plekanec scored his seventh goal of the season in the contest.
Nov 17 - 8:39 AM

Nathan Beaulieu saw limited ice time again on Sunday.

He made the most of his 6:34 of playing time by earning an assist on Tomas Plekanec's seventh goal of the year. Montreal has been dressing seven defensemen for the past few games, which hasn't presented much ice time for Beaulieu. He skated just 8:25 the game before on Saturday and 6:43 during last Thursday's match.
Nov 17 - 8:25 AM

Brandon Prust opened the scoring on Sunday with his first goal of the season.

He scored at the 3:20 mark of the second period in Montreal's 4-1 win over Detroit. Prust has four points and 30 penalty minutes in 19 games.
Nov 17 - 8:17 AM

Dustin Tokarski stopped 28 of 29 shots in Montreal’s 4-1 win over Detroit.

Tokarski was also named the game’s first star. The 25-year-old hasn’t played much this season because he’s stuck behind Carey Price, but he has played well as the backup goaltender. Tokarski hasn’t allowed more than two goals in any of his four starts. Unfortunately he doesn’t get enough playing time to be relevant in fantasy leagues.
Nov 16 - 10:00 PM

P.K. Subban scored a goal and added an assist in Montreal’s 4-1 win over Detroit.

Subban’s goal was the game-winner. The 25-year-old has now scored in back-to-back games. Subban has struggled for long periods of time this season, but he’s still managing to put up points. Subban has five goals and 12 points in 19 games this season. He should be considered an elite offensive defenseman. The Habs have now won six games in a row.
Nov 16 - 9:59 PM

P.A. Parenteau and Dale Weise each potted two goals in the Canadiens’ 6-3 victory over the Flyers on Saturday night.

Parenteau has shown that he needs a top-flight center (John Tavares) to be a high-ceiling play in fantasy leagues. With five goals and nine points in 18 games, he’s more like a 17-goal scorer, with 40 points than one who got close to 70 in his last year with the Islanders. Weise’s goals were his third of the season. David Desharnais (goal, assist) and P.K. Subban also scored in the win. Alex Galchenyuk had three assists, while Tomas Plekanec picked up two.
Nov 15 - 10:34 PM

Carey Price gave up three goals, but still ended up with the win in the Candiens’ 6-3 victory over the Flyers on Saturday night.

Price made 26 saves, with one goal coming against him on the power play. He had given up two goals over his past three games, all of which were wins. The 27-year-old has the talent to win the Vezina, but he’ll need to stay consistent in his game. He has a 2.49 goals-against average and .919 save percentage in 15 games this season.
Nov 15 - 10:34 PM

Jiri Sekac is making the most of his opportunity on the Canadiens' third line.

He has scored two goals and registered four points in three games while playing alongside Brandon Prust and Lars Eller. The Habs probably should have given Sekac meaningful ice time before demoting Rene Bourque to the minors as he is clearly a superior player. That said, at least the Habs have made the right decision now. We don't anticipate Sekac being removed from his current role any time soon so if you need a depth forward, Sekac could be your man.
