Habs notes

The Canadiens take on the Canes tonight to close out 2013. Not much new in Montreal these days. They can't score, and haven't been able to for a couple of weeks. Look for Michel Therrien to mix up his lines - yes, again - as he tries to light a fire under some of his scorers. A big night in the boxscore for the top two lines would do quite a bit for Montreal's confidence going forward.

On the other side of the world, what can you say about Zach Fucale? Montreal's second round pick this summer stood tall today as Canada beat the United States 3-2 at the World Juniors. Is Fucale the goalie of the future for the Habs? Perhaps, but Carey Price likely doesn't have to look over his shoulder for a while yet. 

Should be a good game tonight. Happy new year to all.

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.
