Last Word on Habs Pod: Montreal Canadiens Return to Action
The Habs were back in action this week after having four games canceled due to COVID protocols. The week started off well, as the Canadiens looked rested and fresh and took care of business against the Edmonton Oilers and Ottawa Senators in some convincing fashion. Carey Price even got his first shutout of the year, while Jake Allen ALMOST got his as well. Unfortunately, the week ended on a sour note against those damn pesky Sens. The game really exposed the Canadieins’ shortcomings in their own end. It’s a big problem that needs to be addressed.
The big news moving forward is Eric Staal can now play for the Habs after his quarantine period ended. Habs coach Dominique Ducharme said Staal would play the Habs next game against the Oilers Monday. It will be interesting to see he is used in his first game with the bleu, blanc, rouge. Along with Staal, the debut of Cole Caufield is also getting fans excited. It seems he will start the year in Laval but it’s would not be surprising to see him get a look with the Habs this year.
All this and Connor McDavid‘s elbow, Connor’s interactions with Edmonton media, trade talk much much more.
