This is it folks. The all-star game is over, and the back nine starts tomorrow, as the Canadiens face the Washington Capitals in D.C. Many questions await Montreal in their march towards the playoffs, but many have also been answered through the first 50 games of the season. A quick recap on what we know so far.
Can Carey Price pick up where Jaroslav Halak left off? He has done that and more, earning an all-star spot and Vezina chatter in the process. A .920 SVP ain’t bad, especially when you’re on pace to start 74 games (or 73.8, for those who do the math).
With Andrei Markov and Josh Gorges out for the season, the Montreal Canadiens must now get used to life without Jeff Halpern, for at least a few days, and Mike Cammalleri, for probably a month. A few reinforcements are on the way, in the form of Andreas Engqvist and Ryan White, but winning teams generally aren’t made of reinforcements.
The infirmary is buzzing. The Bulldogs are coming. Can the Habs weather the storm? A few observations.
