Revenge is sweeeeeet!

Payback was a Bi$%h for the New York Rangers. Although we still have some resentment towards them for ending our season (not to mention hurting our beloved Carey), it was sweet to see the Habs take it to the Rangers and continue the season strong!

We have a new star!

The Montreal Canadiens have had their fair share of great players but it’s been a while since we’ve had an up and coming super star! Alex Galchenyuk is showing confidence that was not there last year and fans from all over are thrilled to have his talent and personality in the locker room!
