This Week’s Show: Game action!


Segment 1: Week in Review, Habs News, League News

With hockey back, the guys briefly take you back to Episode 75 of the Canadiens Connection podcast, the episode that took place after the NHL's announcement to pause the season. 

Alexander Romanov has concluded his quarantine period and was finally able to join his teammates and hit the ice for a practice with his new club. 

Dale Weise heading to Switzerland? Amid rumours of an agreement with Lausanne HC of the National League in Switzerland, the forward denied the rumour and claimed his sole focus is on earning another contract with the Montreal Canadiens. 

0 out of 16 NHL.com writers picked the Habs to beat the Penguins, but former Canadiens defenceman, P.K. Subban, said he believes Carey Price can steal the series. 

They said what? Jonathan Drouin describes the in-arena atmosphere, Shea Weber discusses the team's enthusiasm, Claude Julien talks defence and Alexander Romanov expresses happiness and describes his role. 

Impact of the Coronavirus. The guys share their thoughts on NHL games without fans. The MLB is predictably in a tough spot after an outbreak of positive tests in the Miami Marlins organization. 

Segment 2: Things to watch in Pens / Habs series

Rick and Joe discuss the Habs upcoming qualification round series against the high-powered Pittsburgh Penguins and look at the big questions facing the Canadiens in this series. Can Carey Price steal the series? Can the Canadiens defend two elite centres? Will the Canadiens' special teams be a difference in the series? The guys tackle those questions and more!
