The Montreal Canadiens followed up a monumental upset by pulling off another, and now the Pittsburgh Penguins are joining the Washington Capitals in sitting out the rest of the Stanley Cup playoffs.
Brian Gionta had two power-play goals, Mike Cammalleri scored his seventh goal of a series in which he upstaged Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin and the Canadiens built a stunning four-goal lead before beating the Penguins 5-2 in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals Wednesday night.
The Florida Panthers have traded forward Dominic Moore to the Montreal Canadiens for a second-round pick in the 2011 draft.

According to Patrick Fund of Canoe.ca, an offer would be on the table and was accepted by the Kings and Canadiens, but that Los Angeles would like to acquire another player before entering exchange. Ray Whitney and Slava Kozlov are the players focused.

The latest news is that Gainey has not been fired but will instead be stepping down
Pierre Gauthier will be an interim GM
Georges Laraque will not play another game with the Montreal Canadiens.
With the losses of Kovalev and Komisarek, the Habs will be hard pressed to fill the voids. However, by letting Koivu go, as expected, they now have to fill yet another spot down the middle. Gainey and the Habs need to lay to rest the Lecavalier rumors once and for all. To be forgiven for allowing fan favorite Kovalev go, Gainey will have to pull off a miracle….Vinny may be the only miracle for forgiveness in La Belle Provence.
According to Rds.cs Pierre Boivin of the Montreal Canadiens says that the new coach absolutely has to speak french.
According to Sportsnet.ca Montreal Canadiens Forward/Defenseman Mathieu Dandenault is the most likely on the team to be traded.
Bob Gainey could come out of the off-season Free Agent Frenzy looking like a genius. Now that is not to say that he has become somewhat heightened in his intelligence level but rather more likely a stroke of luck with the current econmic turmoil in the world.
The Montreal Canadiens are in a desperate situation to produce a winning formula both on and off the ice. This being the 100th year, you’d assume Bob Gainy would loosen up a little to provide the people and fans of the red-white and blue with something to remember.
