Education: Bialik High School Class of 2013, Dawson College Class of 2015, McGill Political Science Student. Born and raised in Montreal, the Canadiens have always been a big part of my life. What started out as a way to blow off some steam after a tough loss in the 2011 playoffs eventually became a popular hit with Facebook friends around the internet. On PGT, I like to dissect each and every Habs game and promote discussion about the team. Other interests: Aside from Hockey and sports in general, I love music. During the summer I work for Camp Wingate, a sleep-away sports camp just north of Montreal.

Honoring Gary Carter

What a tough week this last one has been for Montrealers, Gary Carter's passing showed us all how much we really loved the hall of fame catcher. Not only was he a great player but more importantly he was a great man. I don't know about the rest of you, but I thought that the tribute to "The Kid" on the big screen, the Habs wearing his famous #8 on their jersey and helmets during warm-up along with Youppi wearing his old Expos jersey were an incredible way to honor Carter. The Habs have always had a knack for doing great tributes and they nailed this one. I think Jack Todd put it best when he wrote "Carter was the face of Nos Amours". Carter will always be in the hearts and memories of Montrealers and I'm sure none of us will ever forget him and his famous smile. Rest in peace, Gary "The Kid" Carter.

NHL100 Classic

In one of the multiple outdoor NHL games this season, the Canadiens will face the Ottawa Senators at TD Stadium in Ottawa on December 16th.

Here are more details, as well as the newly released jerseys:

For tickets:

Jordie Benn

How's this for a stat; in just 29 games, Jordie Benn has already set a career high in goals with 4. That is more than all star defensemen Erik Karlsson, Brent Burns, Victor Hedman and Dustin Byfuglien... COMBINED!!

Check this tweet out from Ken Campbell of The Hockey News:

Daniel Carr

What a story this kid is. Not the biggest, not the fastest, not the most skilled, but he just has a knack for scoring goals. Since the Canadiens called him up from the Laval Rocket four games ago, Carr has amassed 6 points and is leading a very productive fourth line in Montreal.

It seems as if he has cemented his spot on the roster. Well deserved.
