Canadiens roll to 6-0 win over Hurricanes Friday, 09.20.2013
The pro-Canadiens crowd in Quebec had plenty to cheer about; Montreal scored four times in the first period on the way to a rout. Greg Pateryn's point shot and Alex Galchenyuk's rebound beat Cam Ward in a 26-second span to put Montreal ahead 2-0 before the game was four minutes old. David Desharnais and Michael Bournival also beat Ward in the opening period. P.K. Subban added a power-play goal in the second period, and Max Pacioretty scored on a third-period penalty shot. Peter Budaj and Dustin Tokarski combined for the shutout. The teams play again Saturday in Montreal, ending a stretch of four games in four nights for Carolina. "Montreal came ready to play. They skate well, they worked hard," Hurricanes coach Kirk Muller said. "We just weren't ready to play a game at this time of year. We’ve got a game tomorrow night. There's going to be a sellout crowd and we've got to be ready to play."
Hurricanes strike back Saturday, 09.21.2013
MONTREAL (AP) - Jeff Skinner's second period goal and Anton Khudobin's performance were enough to lead the Carolina Hurricanes to a 3-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday at the Bell Centre. Drayson Bowman and Nathan Gerbe also scored for Carolina (1-3-0), while Khudobin made 41 saves. Rookie Michael Bournival was the lone scorer for Montreal (1-2-1). Carey Price stopped 24 shots for the Canadiens. This was Montreal's second game in two nights against the Hurricanes. The Canadiens beat Carolina 6-0 in a lopsided match in Quebec City on Friday. This one wasn't as one-sided, but Montreal found few answers to the Carolina netminder's superb play. Khudobin, who played 14 games with Boston last year and is slated to become the Hurricanes' backup goalie this year, was impressive early and throughout the game. The Hurricanes, who have played four pre-season games in as many nights, showed no sign of fatigue after Friday's game. Carolina opened the scoring at the end of the first period when Bowman fired home his first goal of the pre-season into a gaping net. Price misplayed a clearance behind his net, leaving the puck for Eric Staal, who passed it to a wide-open Bowman. Skinner added to the Hurricanes' lead early in the second period, taking a pass from Riley Nash and firing home on a 2-on-1. The goal would prove to be the winner.Carolina put the contest out of reach at the end of the second period when Nathan Gerbe fired a shot past Price on the power play. It was the Habs' fourth penalty of the period. Montreal scored a consolation goal late in the third period when Andrei Markov's shot banked off Bournival's shin. It was Bournival's fourth goal of the pre-season.

Excellent thread habby.

Can we please finish off 2013 with some kind of team effort? I don't think i can sit through another repeat of the Florida performance. On the plus side,,,,Price will be in net.

Get it done boys.

+1, definitely need to see a 60 minute team effort tonight. Hopefully the loss to Florida will light a fire in that locker room tonight and they will come out and play with passion and desire. GO HABS GO!!

Great GDT!

At Tuesday’s morning skate, Bournival skated on a line with Ryan White and Travis Moen. The odd man out if Bournival plays appears to be Daniel Brière.

Here’s how the lines and defence pairings looked at the morning skate:

Bourque – Plekanec – Gionta
Pacioretty – Desharnais – Gallagher
Prust – Eller – Galchenyuk
Bournival – White – Moen
Parros – Brière

Markov – Emelin
Gorges – Subban
Diaz – Bouillon
Murray

I feel bad for this organization, Therrien is doing us all a huge disservice!

A loss to Florida should not be what brings fire, they should have that fire in their bellies, this room has been lost, completely lost. Therrien has to go! He is the #1 problem with this team!

I'm fine with Patches as a sniper and not a power forward if that's how he'll produce.

He's playing like he's sulking and that's not good for us. He needs to start using that big body of his. There's already two smurfs on that line.
