Leafs & Sens Win – Nashville 2-0 vs Chicago  GAME 2 Thoughts by Jamie Gilcig APRIL 16, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – The Habs evened their series Friday night.   This year there seems to be more desperation across the board to win with multiple games of 100 total hits.  It’s good hockey; sometimes great.  Shea Weber, even though he took a lame fighting penalty, was the monster for Montreal.  Just the beating alone […]

Rough Start for Canadian Teams in NHL Play Offs by Jamie Gilcig APRIL 14, 2017

Cornwall Ontario –  It was great to see five Canadian teams make the playoffs this season after Canada was blanked last year. Sadly all five lost their opening games; some tragically, some, well hockey is a game of funny bounces and for the Leafs Friday night the puck didn’t bounce their way. The upstart Leafs […]

Bad Asset Management Leads to Habs Fall From Grace in 2015/16 by Jamie Gilcig FEB 17, 2016

Going into this season Habs GM Marc Bergevin made very few impact changes.   Washington for example, clearly saw a need for some secondary scoring support and nabbed TJ Oshie, and Justin Williams. Montreal saw some lottery tickets.    Alex Semin, Zach Kassian, and Tomas Fleischman.     While “Flash” had a good start, as […]

The Price Isn’t Right as Habs Miss Another Chance To Move Past Sens by Jamie Gilcig – April 25, 2015

CFN – The Habs have gone from being up 3 games to 0 to now seeing a potential upset in the making. Montreal will have two more chances to finish off the Ottawa Senators, but that word “Character” keeps leaking forward. Carey Price had a Hall of Fame regular season, but has certainly not stolen […]

Habs Not Vegan – Put the Bite to Hamburgler – Flames Smoke Canucks by Jamie Gilcig

CFN – When Habs GM talks about wanting character in his players he wasn’t kidding as the team showed huge character in defeating the Ottawa Senators in game one of their series. Missing was team leader and top scorer Max Pacioretty and Norris candidate PK Subban earned a game misconduct for a clear two handed […]

My Fearless NHL Play Off Predictions for Round One by Jamie Gilcig APRIL 14, 2015  #sens #habs

CFN –  It’s time.  Eight series kick off Wednesday night which will leave eight teams for round two.  Which teams make it will make for some interesting story lines. This year 5 Canadian teams made the final 16, but sadly four of them are playing against each other.   It does seem at times that […]

Will the Ottawa Senators Upset the Montreal Canadians in Round One of the 2014/15 NHL Play Offs by Jamie Gilcig APRIL 13, 2015

CFN – Sens vs Habs for round one of the play offs. This season it’s great to see so many Canadian teams making the second season, but tragically there are two series that will knock out two of our teams. Montreal, while finishing first is vulnerable. The team nabbed Devante Smith Pelly instead of a […]

Sens Almost in – Leafs Tanking Along – Habs & Jets Win – NHL Thoughts by Jamie Gilcig MARCH 22, 2015

CFN – The Hamburglar notched another win as Ottawa is becoming one of the few good feeling stories of this 2014/15 NHL Season or as many are staring to call it; “The Year of the Tank”. The Sens are now 1 point behind Boston for the last Wild Card spot and they have one game […]
