Hockey is here. Canucks 1st round choice Bo Horvat scores in the first game of the September Rookie Tourney.
1998 was an exciting Olympic year considering NHLers for the first were competing. Canada was the obvious favourites but had to get through a shootout in the Semi's against the Czech Republic in order to reach the Gold Medal game. Hasek was at his best and Marc Crawford opted to not use Wayne Gretzky in the shootout...instead he used Ray Bourque?
Great video posted on HFboards featuring the top 25 goals scored by Montreal Canadiens. What makes this video interesting is that the creator chose only goals since 2005. Which makes for a very interesting collection of Habs.
Each video is introduced by a Jersey, don't be confused the name on the Jersey is not who is featured as the goal scorer...it took me a minute to figure that out.
Gotta love the collection of names on this list, it says a lot about the mediocrity of the Habs in recent era.
23. Plekanec (SH)
22. Perezhogin (HOGEY!!)
20. Plekanec (nifty pass from A. Kostitsyn)
17. A. Kostitsyn
16. Robert Lang
15. A. Kostitsyn
At this point the music is bugging me.
11. Koivu (naturally, at 11)
09. A. Kostitsyn
07. Cammalleri (OT)
06. Subban (Finally!)
05. Eller (another nifty pass from A. Kostitsyn)
04. Kovalev (OT)
02. Kovalev (During that massive comeback game)
01. Subban (This, I agree. Even though the Habs lost the game, this goal made me hit the roof when it happened)
This HNIC Montage played at the start of the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs features music from The Who.
A short documentary that explores the lead-up to the infamous Patrick Roy trade, right up to the trade and the consequences afterwards. To Colorado
Patrick Roy speaks of confidence and what it took to win the pivotal OT in game 4 of the 1993 Stanley Cup Finals. The Canadiens won the game thanks to an OT goal by John LeClair, and let us not forget the famous wink.
