The Upper Canadien

The great Jack Edwards

This has to be seen by as many people as possible.

Bruins’ play by play man Jack Edwards compares the Bruins-Habs series to, well, let’s see, royal families, imperialism, he manages to get the Boston Tea Party uprising in there, oh he contrasts Canada with the “free, independent states of…” and it goes on and on.

Jack Edwards Series Wrap-Up

Oh Jack. I’ll miss hearing your ridiculous assertions the day after on the radio…wait, no I won’t.

Enjoy.

Upper Canadien on XM NHL’s the War Room

I had the privilege of gracing the airwaves of XM NHL Home Ice once again today to spend a few minutes dissecting the Canadiens 4-3 series loss to Boston. If you’d like to check out the discussion between Mick, Peter and myself, the audio is available here:

That’s all, folks

It was a hell of a series. Carey Price showed us what he can do. PK Subban is the real deal. Mike Cammalleri is Mr. Clutch, and he definitely deserves a letter.

Scott Gomez may have played his last game as a Montreal Canadien - they just need to figure out where to send him.

How much will this roster change?

We’ve got a series

Price. Gionta. Cammalleri.

Phenomenal rushes by PK Subban.

And a couple of very, very key powerplays.

Woe, Canada!

People always talk about a year, but what a difference a week makes. A week ago, Canadian teams were 5-0. Now, both are facing elimination.

The Montreal Canadiens may hit the ice tomorrow minus James Wisniewski and David Desharnais, two offensive spark plugs who have been solid these playoffs. 2010 saw the Habs go 5-1 in elimination games. Can they do it again?

You might say the Habs have the Bruins right where they want them.

Cowboy up

Carey Price borrows a very apt phrase from the Boston Red Sox. Time to get back to business.

Easter Holidays and family fun are getting in the way of regular blogging this weekend, so a very brief synopsis of tonight’s game:

Three’s trouble

It was. More trouble that anyone expected, especially given the energy of the Bell Centre crowd. But, the Bruins had over 100 points, and we all knew they weren’t going to lie down and call it a day. They’re rough, they’re mean, and we’ve got a series.

So what next? I’ll venture a guess that what we saw from Montreal in the second and third on Monday is exactly what we’ll see come Thursday.But, and here’s a recurring theme: it all comes down to Carey Price.

Carey Price for PM, PK Subban for Minister of Defence

Carey Price is cool as a cucumber. PK Subban is all business. These two, along with Mike Cammalleri, Hal Gill, Brian Gionta and Scott Gomez, are the reasons Montreal has a 2-0 series lead.

The forgotten reason? Coach Jacques Martin.

Game Two Preview

Habs-Bruins game two goes at 7 tonight. No lineup changes expect for Les Canadiens, who stifled the Bruins offence in a 2-0 win on Thursday night.

As I see it, three keys for tonight’s game:

About The Upper Canadien

The Upper Canadien is your one stop shop for all things Montreal Canadiens. Since the summer of 2010, I've been providing Habs related news, notes, and most importantly, opinions. As a blogger, I don't believe it's my job to report the news, it's my privilege to comment on it. You may disagree with what I suggest. In fact, you most likely will. But that's the great part about blogging: it spurs opinion, comment and engages all involved. I've really enjoyed all the debate and commentary from readers thus far and I encourage everyone to respond with ideas on lineups, trades, logos, sweaters, mascots, whatever. The Upper Canadien is a conversation for all hockey fanatics.

I've come to Kukla's Korner with four years of campus radio and three years of sportswriting from my time at Mount Allison University on Canada's East coast. Not only do I not have any professional journalistic training, after five years in the corporate world, I've spent much of the past two years completing an MBA. Business by day, hockey by night, I'm a Canadiens fan through and through. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I do writing.
