Canadiens rolling again

It's March 22nd. There are ten games left in the regular season. Carey Price entered the week with a GAA hovering a shade above 1.90. It is now 1.86.

Carey Price lowered his GAA 4 points. In the last weeks of the season. Having started 59 games. This guy is something else.

As Price goes, so go the Canadiens. They recorded their second shutout in a row, beating the San Jose Sharks Saturday night in Montreal. PA Parenteau recorded another point, and seems to be on his way back to rediscovering his scoring self afte rmonths of concussion recovery. Tomas Plekanec may be playing the best hockey of his career. PK Subban may be on his way to a second Norris Trophy. Greg Pateryn - yes, Greg Pateryn - is quickly establishing himself as one of the Canadiens most reliable defensive defencemen. There was a swoon, but once again, everything is coming up roses.

The next week sees the Canadiens face Nashville, Winnipeg and Florida. A date with Tampa Bay is on the horizon. The Habs will be looking to prove they can beat one of their competitors for first in the East.

What an end run to the season thus far. The Canadiens in first. Carey Price on his way to, perhaps, one of the best statistical goaltending seasons in history.

Sometimes, it is really fun being a fan. This is one of those times.

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.
